Now that it is officially 2019, it is time to review the year went by remembering the highlights and the darkest moments and focusing on the future. While some people are trying to find a new beginning, a new purpose, other might be focusing on finding a relationship with someone genuine in this harsh dating world we live in. While it may be hard, it is certainly possible.
For those who are hopeful for love in this upcoming year, here are some goals to set for yourself.
Love yourself first
You can’t love someone else or be loved by someone else if you simply do not or cannot love yourself. Make yourself a priority, date yourself for a while to learn about yourself on a new emotional level, and focus on discovering and creating you. Start 2019 by doing things for you and seeing where it goes from there.
Discover what you actually want in a partner
It’s easy to say “I want someone who _,” but it’s actually more difficult to pinpoint what things you can tolerate and what might be more serious deal breakers. It’s important to highlight the qualities you want a future partner to have in order to take this seriously so you don’t just settle due to peer pressure.
Go into the real world to date
Screw dating apps that only lead you to endless amounts of unknown phone contacts and useless hookups and first dates. Try going into the real world to find somebody and meet them the old fashioned way. It’s challenging to meet somebody new, especially face to face, but why not try to find a man on a girls night or go to a local bookstore to see a cutie in the corner looking at a good book. You just never know.
Live in the moment
Regardless of if you find success in entering a new relationship, are struggling in the search or are left heartbroken in another failed attempt, embrace it. I know it’s hard to live in the moment when you first meet someone and start envisioning your futures together, but you have to focus on the now. Be present with the person you date or with the situation you’re in. Just because someone else didn’t work out doesn’t mean you’ll be single forever like you think you will.
