December is the time of year when we take a moment to assess the things we want to change about ourselves. With New Year’s right around the corner, it’s kind of hard not to think about your relationship status. The holiday season can be very difficult for singles. Your Facebook newsfeed is plagued with pictures of happy couples, your relatives bombard you with questions of why you’re still single, and everywhere you turn there’s a happy couple in sight. The whole month of December can be stressful and lonely, even more so than Valentine’s Day.
However, being single is not that bad. Think about it, you don’t have to find that perfect gift, right? All jokes aside, we know deep inside that you do want to be in a relationship, which is why you’re here today.
The great thing about New Year’s is that it offers a fresh start and gives you a new beginning. Today, our New Jersey Singles matchmakers will review the top dating resolutions so you can welcome love in 2016.
1. Get rid of any obstacles.
Resolve to let go of any obstacles that are getting in your way of finding love. Are you having a hard time meeting like-minded singles in New Jersey? Then, you need to take a different route to dating, such as our matchmaking services here at New Jersey Singles. You can also opt to try a new activity or hobby so that the people you encounter share the same interests as you.
If the issue is not having enough time, then our matchmaking services will be ideal for you. But first, you need to make love a priority and schedule time for dating. Our matchmakers can guide you along the way, create a personalized dating plan, and teach you how to dedicate yourself to finding love.
2. Figure out what you want.
One of the most important aspects of finding love is knowing what you want in a partner. What are your must-haves in a relationship? It is okay to want certain things, but don’t be shallow with this list. You don’t need a beautiful blonde that looks like a supermodel, nor a 6’3’’ muscular hunk. Write down what you need in a relationship and find people who can offer you those things.
3. Make room for love.
In order to find love in 2016, you must first make room for it. You need to reorganize and ensure your life is open so someone can come in when you do run into them. Prioritize your life and fill it with dates. It is perfectly okay to be happy as a single person, but if you get too comfortable being single, you’re never going to find love.
4. Be someone people want to date.
Are you happy with yourself? Are you happy with the way your life is? Think about this one for a moment: would you date yourself? If not, change things up to make yourself more appealing and datable. You need to be someone who is fun to be around, someone who is interesting, and someone who is an overall great catch, which will take us to the next point.
5. Don’t be so hard on yourself.
Remember, no one in the world is perfect; everyone has a flaw or two. If you have been putting off dating until you achieve, this, that, and the other thing, well, you’ll never get back in the dating scene. You need to start dating now—don’t worry about being perfect, because you can find love with flaws and all.
Here at New Jersey Singles, we know there is someone out there who is perfect for you and we can help you find them!
6. Dress to impress.
We want you to put efforts into your appearance. Just like you dress for the job you want, you also need to dress for the partner you want. You need to be ready and put together, because you just never know when you’ll run into your ideal partner. Plus, you’ll feel more confident when you look good. And let’s face it, a good first impression is the best impression.
7. Be confident in yourself.
Spend some time thinking about all the great qualities you possess. This is not the time to be arrogant, but we know you possess good traits and qualities—and someone out there will be lucky to have you as a partner. If you’re not feeling secure in who you are, now is the time to work on yourself and your esteem. Remember that no one wants to be with someone who doesn’t love themselves. It is draining to convince someone who doesn’t believe in themselves.
8. Have fun with dating.
Remember that dating is supposed to be exciting and fun. If you go into it too seriously, you’ll never make it out alive. Try to go on each date with an open mind and don’t worry if things don’t work out the way you want them to. There’s always next time.
9. Stop wasting time in bad relationships.
Some people think being single is the worst thing in the world and would rather be in any relationship over being single, even if it’s bad for them. Don’t be that person! Jumping from one bad relationship to the next is unhealthy, and it’s something you need to avoid if you want to find the right partner.
If you’re serious about finding lasting love, then you’ll never settle for less than you deserve. If you notice unhealthy patterns in your partner, leave them; if your partner isn’t serious about a relationship, leave them. You don’t deserve to be with someone like that—you deserve true love and nothing less!
