We all know that dating isn’t as easy as what it used to be, even though we now have access to literally thousands of more options and people , it seems that too many choices hasn’t actually simplified it for us. Finding true love can be an exhausting process, it consumes time, emotions and can throw us on a rollercoaster of a ride with no certain outcome. So how do we make finding the right person less difficult and easier to access? Here are 5 quick ways to keep dating uncomplicated and get you on the straight and narrow to finding your perfect partner:
1: Work out what you want
When we are presented with so many options, it’s hard to know where to start! Before you jump back into the dating game, first decide what it is you really want out of a partner and relationship .Write a list of all the traits you NEED and WANT, be honest but also realistic; seeing it written down on paper will help you assess whether or not the person you are looking for is achievable or if you are indeed living in a Disney movie.
2: Take your aim
Once you have decided what it is you want in a partner, start targeting groups, people and dating sites that can offer opportunities to meet that type of person. There’s no point either waiting around for them to manifest on your doorstep or trying out every single option till you find them, get specific with where you invest your time, emotions and even money. Narrow the playing field and stay focused on the goal.
3: Get back to basics
Dating is only as complicated as we make it, and if you are starting to grow tired of trying to find Mr or Mrs Right then maybe it’s because you have unnecessarily thrown a whole lot of rules into the mix! Keep it simple by getting back to the basics of what it takes to have a healthy and happy relationship. Call instead of texting, court one another and get to know someone’s personality and intentions before you rule them out or give them your heart.
4: Keep your options open
Whilst having a clear idea of what you want is important , it’s also just as important to be flexible and know when to compromise and when not to . Don’t put all your eggs into one basket, keep your options open and remember that relationships are evolved over time of getting to know one another, they don’t just happen after one date!
5: Stay positive and proactive
The right person is worth the wait and whilst you may be frustrated or disheartened during the process it takes to find them, don’t let it deter you from the adventure. Learning to be whole and happy on your own will essentially be what helps you attract the right person at the right time.
Keep a positive attitude and stay active in the dating game. It’s not about chasing love but rather being able to recognise it when it comes along.
