And it is time to throw it over to Laura for another great post! Take it away…… drum roll please: The Ultimate Guide To Meeting The Man Of Your Dreams In 2016 – take notes!
We are all on a mission to find the right person for us. Whether we are aware of it or not. Some of us are lucky enough to find ‘the one’ very quickly and make the whole process seem easy and carefree. But for the rest of us struggle to find anybody and always question what is going wrong. It’s important to remember that you are not alone. More people than you think have still not yet found the one person they should be with. If you’re getting tired of the waiting around and the endless searching, here’s a guide to help you find your dream man in 2016.
As the old saying goes, love will come when you least expect it. Well, it’s most certainly true, and you should follow this advice right now. The more time you spend looking for it, the more desperate you appear. So if you spend your evening trawling through pages on dating sites or spend every weekend looking for potential suitors in bars, stop it. Spend this time making yourself happy and finding the right man will follow. Have fun being unattached and enjoy the process of learning about yourself. It may make you realise some things about yourself that you like or want to change.
What do you want
You need to have some rough idea of what you want from your life. Think about the things you prioritize above all else. This could be starting a family or concentrating on your career for instance. Also, consider the things you don’t deem as important. These things will determine whether someone is suited to your or not. You should both share similar values and priorities if there is any chance of the relationship developing. Friends and family are bound to air their opinions, but don’t let them overshadow what you want. Sit them down and clearly explain what you want from your relationships and from your life. Help them understand the decisions you’ve made and be considerate if they question it. They will begin to realise that you are taking control of your own destiny and should support you no matter what you decide to do with it.
Always look your best
You never know when your dream man is likely to appear. So it’s better not to take any chances and always look your very best. You should try to make a brilliant first impression no matter where you are. It will be highly embarrassing for you to meet your ideal guy when you’ve popped to the shops in your pajamas or without brushing your hair. He may think you don’t care about your appearance or think you are lazy. This is not something you want so avoid it at all costs.
Keep on top of your beauty regime by regularly shaving, having your hair cut and practice your makeup techniques. Also, start a new skincare regime to keep your skin looking fresh and bright. All of these little tasks will make you feel more confident and make you look fabulous every day.
Refresh your look
Is your everyday style looking a little lackluster? If the answer is yes, then it may be time to make a change. Your personal style says more about you than you probably realise, so you need to ensure it’s giving off the right impression. Small changes such as trying out a new hairstyle with a wand curler or a bolder hair colour can make all the difference to your look. Revamping your wardrobe is another essential part of updating your look. Get rid of anything that you no longer wear or like and replace them with new items that reflect your personality perfectly. If you look amazing, you’ll also feel good so try out new things with your look and find the real you.
Find a new interest
Trying out new things is a great way to learn new skills and meet new people. Even though your aren’t technically looking, you can talk and find out more about people who share your interests. Who knows that that might turn into. Your priority should always be bettering yourself and challenging yourself with new experiences. Maybe you’ve always wanted to try yoga or mountain climbing. Don’t turn down any potential opportunities because you won’t know anybody or because you’re nervous. The first day of trying something new is always daunting but utterly worth it. Go with an open mind and make the effort to speak to everyone. It will give you a tremendous buzz and will make socializing come more naturally to you in the future.
Keep yourself safe
During your journey to finding your dream man, you may come across people will the wrong intentions. If a situation does not feel right, make an excuse and remove yourself from it immediately. You are not desperate and should not lower yourself to going for the first man who pays you attention. It’s likely he probably won’t be the one for you, and you’ll save yourself a lot of wasted time if you’re patient instead. Always meet potential suitors in busy environments and never in secluded areas. Be smart and keep yourself safe at all times by letting a friend know where you are throughout the evening.
Let him do the chasing
So you’ve found someone who may have potential to be the right guy for you. Be cool and don’t throw yourself in too soon. That is likely to scare him away before anything really begins. Leave hints that you are interested and let him do some of the chasing. That way you will know how interested he is in you too. If he puts in little effort, he’s not the one.
One of the most important things you need to know is that your dream man is just as scared and nervous as you. It’s likely he’s done a lot of the same things you have without much success either. Be honest and don’t lie about who you are or what you want. That way you start this new relationship on a basis of trust and respect, which is the key to a long, happy and loving relationship. Good Luck!
