7 Tips for Singles New Year's Success
7 Tips for New Year’s Resolution Success is devoted to helping singles implement new ideas to help them with their goals of meeting “that someone special” this next year. This list includes helpful tips that can be implemented immediately such as:
- Be proactive – Start your resolution early by making planning ahead! Don’t wait for things to happen – make them happen. Then, be willing to follow-through with it. Commit to making a concentrated effort to meet new people, and then do it! There are many events and activities available to meet new people if you just take the time to do a little research and put it on your calendar. Literally schedule time for fun and to be social into your PDA on a weekly basis.
- Think like the opposite sex – This is key. Ask yourself what kinds of things the opposite sex likes to do and then do those things (or at least go to places where they happen). Men like sporting events, golf, and co-ed sports leagues – Women like wine tastings, fundraisers, and dinner parties. Go there.
- Get out from behind the computer – Take a break from the online world – face to face group events are not only fun, but there is a much better chance to sense chemistry. Speed dating is a great in-person alternative for those that enjoy online dating.
- Try New Things – Try organizations, activities and events in new cities that you might not normally try. If you do the same thing, you will get the same results -- with the same people!
- Expand Your Personal Network – Making new friends and socially networking is a great way to meet potential mates. Don’t discount someone just because there is no immediate chemistry with them…you never know what party they might invite you to or who they might want to introduce you to!
- Go It Alone – There are events and group activities for singles in which most participants attend stag, so everyone is in the same position – meeting new people. Take a singles vacation. Go places alone that you’d normally not go alone and then, see No 7.
- Lose the fear – This is the most important of all. Change your attitude. When worrying about potential rejection, think like a PR person and totally “spin” the experience in a positive light in your own mind. Imagine that if you approach someone that the worst thing that can happen (assuming you can eliminate your ego) is that they’re complimented that a confident, attractive person like you asked them out. You like complimenting people and making them feel good, right? Of course you do.
