1 – Dedicate resources for meeting people
Your perfect partner isn’t just going to fall into your lap. You need to dedicate resources to meeting new people and sustaining burgeoning relationships. When we talk about resources, that doesn’t just mean money either, it means time and effort that you put into this aspect of your life. Set aside a set amount of time per week for online dating for example, or make a savings jar for a special event you might want to attend with someone.
2 – Meet people in person
It can be easy to get stuck in online dating that goes nowhere, constant texting without any real progress. A good resolution for this year is to keep the online interactions to a minimum. Arrange as many safe, in-person dates as possible. These in-person dates will stop you from wasting time on people that you might not have any chemistry with and speed up the decision-making process.
3 – Set clear goals
It is not enough to pick a hot date and hope for the best. You should have your goals in mind if you want to date consciously. What are your financial goals in 2020? Your career goals? Having answers to these questions allows you to see clearly how you want your relationship to be and to manifest that reality.
