Here are some New Year’s resolution ideas to revitalize your dating life this year. If sense of humor is vital to you (it is to me), don’t ask for a second date with someone who doesn’t make you laugh.
But beyond that, figure out the qualities you think are most important to you in a partner.
Be open and honest about your experience and resolve to listen to others be open and honest about theirs. Learning how to talk about emotions with others will, in fact, eventually make you a better partner. That means packing up the things in your apartment that remind you of a retired relationship. I’m not saying you need to throw people out of your life, but you do need to give your heart the time to grow without them for a while. Stop setting yourself up for disappointment by planning elaborate escapades.
That means there are more of you who are commitment-minded than who aren’t. The solution to that is less complicated than you might think too, and mostly it has to do with not being afraid to break out of your social circle and meet new people, not with anything that’s specifically “wrong” or “lacking” about you.And while perhaps a gay single might go about finding a partner differently than someone who is straight, the ultimate outcome is the same.Given that, my first bit of advice is for everyone, no matter which side of the plate they swing from: Don’t Overcomplicate Things!One book I recommend to help you with this resolution? It’s one of the few dating books out there that will help you clarify to yourself what matters rather 4. Resolve this year to nurture your relationships with single friends who understand the dating scene.Don’t let this year be another year where you hide your feelings because you don’t want to seem like needy. Become a better listener, a better friend and a better person all at the same time. If you harbor any leftover feelings for someone in your past, now is the time to resolve to get them gone.
