Everyone who ever dated knows that dating can be frustrating, at least the first phase of getting to know someone. We’re all familiar with those crash-and-burn dates where you feel like you’ve completely wasted your time and probably shouldn’t leave the house. Or these dates that you feel actually went well but apparently you’re the only one, because the other person just vanishes… Or the weird people who can bring up the most awkward subjects.
Nonetheless, it’s all up to you to create more focused and effective meetings with new people, and that should be your new year’s resolution. One of the things you need to invest in is improving yourself, and becoming that special someone for someone else.
The power is in your hands, and you’re not just waiting for that special someone to come by, you are taking actions to make it happen. Here are a few resolutions that will help you getting ready for your next relationship.
Start with getting to love yourself and become more comfortable with yourself. How do you do that? Simply by deciding that you’re doing whatever you can to fell better. If you feel like a lazy couch potato, it’s time to get up and start exercising. It will benefit you in two ways – you’ll get in shape and feel better about yourself; and you’ll meet new people at the gym, the country club or even at the running paths in the park.
Similar to getting in shape and feeling good about yourself, another way is to find yourself a new hobby. Again, this helps in two ways – one for doing something interesting and expanding your horizons, and two – you’ll meet new people.
Lastly, an important resolution is to resolve issues and bad feeling from past relationships. In many cases, past relationships leave us with a bad taste in our mouth, usually because they didn’t end so well. So, instead of resenting the past, resolve it. A good place to start is with a daily journal, where you simply write everything that comes to mind, how you feel, what you want to happen, how you want to feel and so on. Also, meditation is a great tool to leviate some of the bad feelings you’ve been carrying around.
These resolutions are a great way to start the new Year and to get you a bit more “relationship ready”. When you invest in self-improvement, you’ll become attractive, unique and interesting.
