If you are one of these singles and you feel like giving up on dating, let me encourage you. The love you seek is seeking you. But you have to do more than just pray for a mate. Pray, take action and create opportunities to attract the right mate!
Here are 3 easy ways to get started:
1) Put Yourself Out There
If a man came to your house, knocked on your door and announced, “Hi, I’m THE ONE. Can I come in?” you’d call the police! But when you say you’re “waiting” for love to find you, that’s what you’re hoping will happen. You’ve got to put yourself out there.
That doesn’t mean you have to go to clubs or bars or places you don’t like. You can go to singles’ events & meetups in your area and meet some high-quality men! And don’t just be a wallflower. Let your guards down, put down your smartphone and flirt. Let the guys know they have the green light to approach you.
2) Looking For Love Doesn’t Mean You’re Desperate
There’s a big myth going around that looking for a man makes a woman desperate or “thirsty.” As a result, many women I talk to feel guilty for even thinking about it. The truth is, wanting a relationship where you feel respected, honored, cherished, and loved makes you human! You deserve it.
3) Say Yes More Often
My colleague April Beyer teaches singles to “Say yes to dates, meetings and opportunities. The more you say yes, the closer you are to everything your heart desires.” You don’t have to marry the person who asked you out. Just go for appetizers and explore whether there’s enough attraction there to go out again. By saying yes, you open yourself up to love coming in your life.
My hope is that by reading this, you’ll decide not to give up on dating. I know it gets challenging and exhausting, but you don’t have to do it alone!
