How to Make 2018 The Year You Meet Someone Amazing
7 tips for a new(ish) you in the new year
If you’re single and hoping that 2018 will be the year you meet that person, you need to give yourself the best chance at success.
Here’s how you can open yourself up to finding real love this year, and make sure you’re ready for it when it finds you.
1. Learn to love yourself first
If you don’t love yourself, how do you expect anybody else to?
We all have our own set of imperfections and flaws. Whatever it is that you’re struggling to love - there is someone out there who will adore that part of you, because it makes you who you are.
Learn to embrace your uniqueness and be proud of who you are. When you’re happy and confident within yourself, you’ll realize exactly what you deserve, and it’ll be so much easier to attract the right partner.
2. Let go of the past
You can’t move forward if you keep looking backwards. If you’re beating yourself up over the breakdown of past relationships, or clinging to reminders of your ex - it’s time to let go.
Clear out your mind so that you can be completely present in the now, and attract someone new into your life.
3. Start looking for love in the right places!
Let's put an end to bemoaning dating sites and start heading to the right dating sites. Not all dating sites are created equal - so when you choose a site, be sure it fits what you’re looking for.
If you want to avoid the overwhelming nature of swipe-heavy sites, try a dating site like Zoosk, which places a higher emphasis on genuine connections.
The site’s Behavioral Matchmaking gets to know your habits - likes and dislikes - and offers matches accordingly. It’s designed to gauge your own personality, and what you’re looking for, and then match you with someone you’d get along with.
Another great option - Elite Singles - is aimed at career-driven daters (30-55) who are too busy to spend hours swiping through profiles. The site employs personality pairing to match singles - based on a questionnaire that’s completed upon signup.
Wherever you choose to date, make sure the spirit of the site fits what you’re looking for. It can make all the difference between meeting a catch and a catastrophe.
4. Focus on becoming whatever you’re looking for
What is it that you’re looking for in a partner? Kindness, intelligence, loyalty, adventure… write it all down. Now, focus on how you can gradually build those qualities within yourself.
You see, like attracts like - if you want to attract a warm, loving person who treats you like a Queen, you’ve gotta be a warm, loving person yourself.
5. You do you
If you constantly wear a mask, or try to change parts of who you are, you’ll only end up meeting people who don’t love the real you. The only way you can find true love is by unapologetically being yourself. And who cares about the people who don’t see your beauty? Beauty means something different to every single person.
Remember, there is someone out there for everyone.
6. Face your fears
Many people get their heart broken, and are then scared of opening themselves up out of fear of being hurt again. But you know what? In the end, you’re only going to hurt yourself because you’re not giving yourself the chance to be happy and fall in love again.
Confront whatever is holding you back, and preventing you from living the beautiful life you know you deserve. Start small, try new things, and force yourself out of your comfort zone - that’s the secret to conquering your fears.
7. Don’t take anything personally
You will fall for people who aren’t that into you, and you’ve got to learn to be okay with that. Rejection is simply the world’s way of not giving you what you want now, because it knows there’s something much bigger and better making its way to you that you’re going to want a helluva lot more!
The person who’s right for you is going to think you’re incredible, exactly the way you are.
