How many times have you heard the same dating tips repeated over and over again on the internet? Countless we bet. Some could be diamonds in the pile of charcoals, but others are merely recycled and, in fact, lack what we all need so we can handle our love lives.
So today we will be focusing on the opposite. We’re going to talk about surprising dating advice that actually work. We bet that you’ll tell yourself, “I haven’t thought of it that way”. Without further ado, let’s go to the list.
All Of The Dating Tips You’ll Ever Need
Love the Single Life
Yeah. We know that this doesn’t sound right but hear us out. As someone who’s still looking for a partner, you should have at least tried to enjoy the life that you have as a single person. If you don’t, you can come off as desperate and too needy or clingy when it’s time for you to date. In the meantime, while Ms. Right still hasn’t arrived yet, travel, experience new things and just enjoy life.
While you’re having a blast with your single life, you may feel the urge to compare yourself with people who have already found a significant other. Stop it. You have to remember that everything has its perfect timing. The perfect time could have come with the couples that you’re seeing. Yours will come too if you’re patient enough to wait for it.
Don’t be Yourself
This may also sound contra-intuitive, but bare with. If being yourself hasn’t landed you a real date in over a year, it’s time to focus your efforts on self-improvement. The real you could just be hiding behind a scared facade you’ve created over the years. Be honest and assess yourself in a way that will be helpful to your development.
Take a Break
This is kind of similar to embracing your single life. Sometimes, even if we don’t feel like dating, we do it anyway for the sake of not wasting time. This notion is totally false. When you don’t feel like it, just take a break. You are not a dating robot. You’re allowed to focus on other things in your life other than dating.
Don’t be Afraid to Let Go
When we’re smitten, we usually don’t really see things objectively. This is especially true when the person we’re with is not good for us at all, but we choose to look the other way for fear of losing a “good thing“. The fact is, we shouldn’t be afraid of letting go of people who are unhealthy for us.
Set Your Standards
Have you ever thought about what will be acceptable behavior to you and what you consider to be crossing the line? If you haven’t and you are active in the dating scene, make sure that you allow yourself enough time to think about these things. Early on, you have to set your standard so you know when you have a keeper.
Feedback on what? Feedback on you, of course. Usually, we think that something is going great when all of a sudden the other person drops you like a hot potato. Instead of just turning your back and walking the other way, why not get feedback on what you did wrong. It could get awkward but think about it as a learning experience and an opportunity to better yourself.
Why You Should Believe In This
See? If you think logically, all of these suggestions will sound right to you. And even if some of them don’t, you’ll have to trust us and believe in them anyway, because we are certain you don’t agree with some of them only because you don’t see things straight caught up in the moment. Just try it out anyway, and you’ll see that it all pays off really quickly.
