As we undertake another year, we also bring with us some things … namely, being single and dating. Our experiences from last year, although not alwaysgood, brought us where we are now. Perhaps using what we learned from last year, we need to re-assess what we’re looking for from our dating and single life. Something to think about. So what are my New Year’s Resolutions for being Single and Dating?
Well first and foremost I resolve to stop dating douchebags … mind you they don’t seem like douchebags when I meet them, but I am going to take little red flags a little more seriously. We do see those red flags, but sometimes they’re enticing … I know they are to me … so I solemnly promise to take red flags seriously. What else do I resolve to do? Well, I definitely resolve to live my bestsingle life. Being single doesn’t have to be a bad thing. I am blessed with so many good things and people in my life that, although I would love to be with someone, I don’t NEED someone to make me whole.
I also resolve not to settle for less than what I want. I know what I’m looking for and he’s out there somewhere. I will keep trying until I get it. I truly believe we shouldn’t remove our standards for the prospect of having someone in our life, even if that someone is the wrong one. I know it’s difficult, but I made that mistake and I won’t make it again. What else do I resolve as part of my Single and Dating New Year’s Resolutions? I resolve to laugh more because nothing attracts more people than a smiling and laughing happy person. I cannot tell you how many more responses to my online dating profile I got when I put a picture of me happy and laughing. Even when people see a happy person they’re intrigued. Be happy. Life is what you make it, so make it enjoyable.
The New Year is a time to start new and start fresh. Leave the past behind and learn from your errors, but don’t bring them with you. Leave them in the past. Don’t look back. The hardships you encountered have made you who you are, so don’t be sad or bitter about your bad dating luck. See it as another step towards your ideal partner. If things didn’t work out with someone and it left you single, that’s ok, you weren’t meant to be with them anyway or else they would be in your life. I’ve learned throughout my life that when something is meant to happen it does, no matter what you do. It may sounds like a passive way of thinking but it’s true. People who leave our lives, in retrospect, didn’t belong there anyway. Think about it. Reflect. Resolve to be the best single dater you can be! I know I am! So join me …
