Happy New Year, Friends!
We made it to 2021, and we’re still standing. Do you know what that means? It’s time for a new outlook on love and life. The pandemic has caused millions of people to become discouraged as it relates to the subject of dating.
The challenges of meeting the one became ten times harder. At least that’s what we thought. The truth is, this is the perfect time to keep your head in the game by taking an assessment of your love life and doing the work necessary to change your narrative in the area of romance.
In All Good Just a Week Ago, we aired our dirty laundry so you could learn from our mistakes. As we embrace a new year, it’s time to put some old habits to rest. Let’s start with changing those dating patterns that have yielded no return. Here are some tips.
Know what you’re looking for. The days of going with the flow are played out. While keeping your head in the dating game, we strongly suggest that you have a clear understanding of what you’re ready to receive. If ready to be in a relationship, own it. Single and just ready to mingle? Make it known. Whatever your position is on relationships, know what you want and why. If you don’t, you will attract and entertain any and everybody.
Change your mindset. It’s time to change the narrative in your dating life. This starts with changing your mindset. If you are ready for something different in your dating life, you can no longer believe the lies about the lack of love’s possibilities.
Become the person YOU want to date. In All Good Just a Week Ago, we reflect on a story called Nasty Natasha. She’s the girl who is the complete opposite of everything that is on her dating list. If you want to attract a particular type of person, there are some things you may need to change about yourself. If you seek someone who is financially stable, start working on your finances—looking to meet someone who is fun and creative? What types of qualities do you have to attract such a person? Always remember, you are what you attract.
Have fun. Relationship hang-ups can make it challenging to embrace the journey. After all, our love life is one of the most critical aspects of our lives. Of course, you should take it seriously, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy life along the way. Your love life is just one component of your life. Don’t let the absence of your soulmate stop you from embracing your single season. Enjoy your life with full confidence that your person will appear at God’s appointed time.
