The New Year presents a fresh opportunity to better ourselves and why not be the best version of yourself in 2019! In dating we are all guilty of getting stuck in ruts or forming bad habits! Keeping New Year’s resolutions can be tough, but by truly recognizing the patterns we keep repeating, we can make a change! Here are some ways you can date fresh this year and let 2019 be the year that YOU find love! :)
Figure out what you want!
Before you start dating this year, figure out exactly what you want and what qualities are most important to you in a partner to keep your priorities top of mind. Most importantly, make sure they are all qualities and characteristics that you equally bring to the table. We are all looking for and deserve to be in a relationship with our equal!
We can all get so caught up in our idea of who we may think is the right person for us is, but if you repeatedly have dated the same type of person and it hasn’t worked out, maybe it’s time to step out of your comfort zone! Swipe right, go on a second date, agree to going on a first – Say yes! Say yes to new people and new opportunities, you just never know what can happen with a big open heart and a big open mind!
Whether you’re going to a bar, joining a hiking group, or going to a singles event, it can be anything, but going out and putting yourself out there is the key to meeting new people and possibly even finding “the one” this year!
Forget the toxic ex!
Exes can be comfortable and easy, but going back to a toxic situation is never good. It is like re-reading the same book over and over hoping the ending to change!
It’s easy to get discouraged, but having a negative attitude won’t help the process! Dating is not a death sentence – make the most of meeting new people and enjoy the journey! Even if you end up on a date that is not a great fit for you, enjoy the time spent together and maybe even play matchmaker by thinking about a single friend that you could possibly introduce them to!
