It’s tricky finding someone worth your time! You’re almost always going to experience the wrong people before you find that perfect someone. With the technological advances that our society has experienced in such a short amount of time, it’s no wonder why we as a collective struggle to date.
Keep these 4 things in mind when trying to find someone to help cut out a lot of negativity from your dating life.
I know that this seems very self-explanatory. However, one of the biggest mistakes you can make when looking for a significant other is trying to be what you think they want to be more desirable.
You need to attract people that enjoy your authentic presence. In whatever form you choose to pursue dating, make sure you are not putting on a front or pretending to be something or someone that you’re not. It may be tempting to bend a little to be more relatable or attractive to someone you might like- in the end you deserve someone who likes you for exactly who you are.
When showing interest in anyone make sure you’re both on the same page. In order to be on the same page with someone, you need to tell them exactly what you want out of the relationship.
Be upfront and honest about what you’re looking for and you’re less likely to have misunderstandings later on.
You will have a higher chance of finding exactly what you’re wanting if you put it all out there- whether that’s telling the person you’re interested in what you want out of the relationship or detailing what you’d like in your dating profile. You deserve to get what you want; Make it known!
Don’t Settle For Less
Another mistake people make all the time pertains to accepting less than what they deserve in relationships. No matter who you are if you’re romantically inclined with someone you deserve to feel loved and accepted, to feel like a priority, and to feel safe with them. Always follow your instincts when it comes to how you feel while dating someone.
Do not settle for less than feeling happy and content with the person. It doesn’t matter what you look like, how old you are, where you’re at in life- you never deserve to feel bad in a relationship. Don’t settle for less than you deserve. Make sure that when you’re dating you know your worth.
Don’t Be Discouraged
Finally, don’t let yourself become discouraged or disheartened. The media often portrays romantic relationships as the main goal in life. Dating should be a plus in your life not your main source of happiness. If you’re struggling to find someone and feeling hopeless just know that you don’t and shouldn’t need a significant other to be happy. Becoming bitter from past relationship failures will only lower your chances of finding the perfect person for you. Until you find that person who fills your life with joy- be that person for yourself. Find your own happiness and the right person will find you.
