It’s a new year and you’re probably looking forward to executing your plans, and striking goals off your list. Perhaps love is one of those things. Be that as it may, love isn’t like a pair of shoes that you can simply order online. Sometimes it seeks you out, curling itself sweetly around your heart and warming up all your insides. Most times however, it’s elusive. You have to search for it, perhaps ambush it, and show it that the doors of your heart are open!
This article is specifically for those who are sincerely looking for love. After a great deal of research, we have come up with a list of the most effective ways to meet new people and find love in 2019.
1. Know What You Want
This is more important than you think. You don’t go into a supermarket not knowing what you want to buy, otherwise, you’ll end up with a lot of unneeded things. So what do you do? You think about what you want and make a list. It’s the same thing when it comes to the matter of the heart.
For instance, it helps to know how much of your values you would expect your significant other to share. It’s pointless to open your heart up to just anyone and then end up with a broken heart. Save your energy for fulfilling relationships in 2019.
2. Get Out More
I understand the temptation of curling up on the sofa, eating popcorn and Netflixing, but you are not going to find love all alone! You’ve got to meet people, laugh, talk, and explore. So go on a road trip, hang out with friends, and don’t be afraid to meet new people!
3. Try Online Dating
I imagine that it can be difficult for elite singles to go out often, because of their hectic work schedule. So, try online dating. It affords you the opportunity to meet only those you deem worthy of your time. I suggest that you subscribe to sites with good reviews, and keep an open mind. There may be a lot of unpleasant candidates in the pool, but there are also good ones. As I said earlier, keep an open mind, and don’t forget the desires that you’ve highlighted.
4. Learn a New Skill
I have an aunt who found love in the midst of the clatter of pots and pans. A recently retired widow, she signed up for an Italian cooking class and fell in love with a soft-spoken pediatrician. It was such a joy to see her remarry after seventeen years. I can think of a few more stories of people who found love while learning a new skill.
What skill do you want to learn this year? Go for it, you just might discover more than a new talent!
5. Don’t Let Fear Hold You Back
Take the plunge in 2019, let go of your fears and past disappointments and open your heart to the possibilities of a new beginning. Give people the benefit of a doubt, and don’t be on the defensive. Perhaps you’ve lost a partner to death, don’t be afraid to love again. Preoccupy your mind with thoughts of fulfilling love, and it will most likely come to you.
Try one of these ways, and watch 2019 answering to love!
