If you’re without a person to kiss at midnight on New Year’s Eve and you’re not happy about it then it’s time to take the bull by the horns when it comes to finding love in 2017.
Instead of being passive and spending time swiping on different apps to find the one, the author of How to find a Prince and Marry Mr Right, George Watts, has some golden rules to follow.
DON’T BE LAZY!
Nowadays we all tend to be a bit lazy about the whole thing, thinking we can just sign up to an app or website and happiness will just land on our laptops. Wrong. The dating environment is more competitive than ever and therefore you need to give 200 per cent if you are really in the zone to make a success of it.
IF YOU DON’T LIKE THEM, MOVE ON
Never persevere with someone for the sake of it when you know it’s time to move on.
Reserving energy is paramount in this game, because finding ’the one’ can be both mentally and physically exhausting.
RELAX AND STOP SECOND GUESSING
We tend to try and second guess what the other person is thinking when on a date, but it’s important to remember that they are in the same boat too and we should just let go of all that pointless anxiety.
DON’T CHANGE WHO YOU ARE TO FIND ’THE ONE’
Don’t try and morph into something you are not to please anybody else. Just be yourself and let nature take it’s course…
SECOND DATES ARE JUST AS IMPORTANT AS THE FIRST
GET SOMEONE ELSE TO PLAY CUPID
FIND A HOBBY
Think about your hobbies or interests and hunt out a local group you can join to help meet people with similar interests.
If confidence is an issue, try to embrace and love you a little more before beginning to think about anyone else.
STOP AND THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE YOU WANT
The problem is most of us don’t stop and think about the future when we are in the thick of something that seems to be going well.
This is a fatal error because actually what we need to do is exactly that – stop and think.
Routines breed boredom, a little randomness is also good for both heart and soul and your relationship too.
