BALTIMORE, MD AND NORWELL, MA…
Another holiday spent solo while everyone else seems to have a significant other? Even though you may not have trouble finding a date, has finding a date that turns into a lasting relationship always eluded you? If so, you are in the same boat as many singles today. The real question is…How do you turn things around and build a successful relationship?
If you are among the singles out there that keep ending up with the wrong one, Paul A. Falzone, CEO of The Right One and Together Dating, one of the world’s largest brick-and-mortar dating services with more than 60 offices nationwide, has a few tips to help you out of your dating rut and create a fresh approach to dating in the new year.
“Dating is a lot like when you learned to ride a bike when you were a kid. Sure, you fell off the bike a time or two, but you kept getting back on, never forgetting what made you fall off. Fortunately with dating, you have the benefit of learning from others how not to fall the next time,” said Falzone.
So, how do you begin the new year with a fresh outlook on dating? Here are some tips for finding the right one in the new year:
Take a look at your past relationships. Although you may not have a “type”, did each relationship have something in common? Do you choose partners based on how they make you feel (important in front of your friends, needed, over-protected, etc.)?
Leave enough time between the end of one relationship and the beginning of the next. When a relationship ends on a bad note, it is normal to seek the attention of another, but be sure your wounds are healed first.
Consider a dating hiatus. What you really might need is “you” time. Focus on yourself for three to six months before getting back to dating. Try boosting your self-esteem without a partner. Find new people to spend time with or new hobbies to enjoy. This may help you adopt a fresh attitude towards relationships.
Give new relationships proper time to develop. Enjoy each phase as it comes and do not rush it. Approach each date as a chance to have fun and evaluate the true person.
Long-term relationship lagging? If you are in a long-term relationship that is breaking down due to major life changes or lack of romance, make time to nurture the partnership. Do not sweep problems under the carpet. Bring them to the forefront and do not be afraid to confront one another. Professionals agree that arguing is often the first sign that a bond is improving. Without this open communication, not only do the issues persist, but feelings eventually go dead and you are left with a lifeless relationship.
