As we approach Valentine’s Day, are you yearning to meet the partner of your dreams? It may seem like an impossible task, but our easy steps below should help you to find your soul mat
You may have read in our previous article Welcome love into your life (link), that you really need to love yourself first, before you can find love and emotional fulfilment with someone else. Once you’ve learnt how to love and feel good about yourself, you will feel happier and more content. This in turn will increase your self-confidence which is the key to attracting love to you. You only have to look around to see that people who radiate positivity and confidence are usually happier and have the most loving relationships, because these qualities are like a magnet drawing people to them.
Try these simple steps to help you find your dream partner:
Positivity – surround yourself with positive people and avoid spending time with negative ones, even if they are old friends, they may not necessarily be good for you at this time. You need to make space in your life for new acquaintances in your search for love
Socialise – extend your social time by joining clubs, groups of interest, for example, a health and social club (get fit at the same time), adult learning classes, dance classes, book reading groups, sport activities like badminton or walking groups are just a few places where you will meet new people
Travel – think about taking a trip for solo travellers where you will have more time to get to know people and can increase your friendship groups in a relaxing environment
Social Media – use social media to interact with like-minded people (take due care and diligence with the sites you visit). Set up a blog and talk about the things that interest you, be open and honest with your views on life and publicise what’s good about it
Visualise – think about what your ideal partner would be like and how happy you would be in this new relationship. Contemplate how you would spend time together and where it might lead
Expectations – don’t expect to find the perfect partner, it’s unlikely that you would meet someone who exactly fits all of your ideals. Be open minded when meeting someone new for the first time and don’t be easily put off by insignificant details. It’s really not important how people appear on the outside, but what’s inside that matters. Don’t be judgemental - give someone a chance who you may not have considered before. That special person might be someone you know, without you realising it
Don’t give up – as the saying goes, ‘you might have to kiss a few frogs before you meet your prince’. If this happens, don’t fret about it, put it down to experience and realise it just makes you wiser and one step nearer to finding your true love
