Being single can either be a ride to enjoy until you meet that special someone, or like a stained shirt – something you want to fix as soon as possible. I’m now of the opinion that being single is not a negative. But if you do feel like it’s time to meet someone, there are ways to make yourself desirable to any man or woman (whichever you’re into). Here’s my advice for saying goodbye to singleness.
- Step out of your comfort zone
If I can credit the increase in confidence I feel today to anything, it’s stepping out of my comfort zone. Trying new things allows you to expand your mind and makes you more interesting. And who doesn’t want to date someone interesting? Plus, you could meet that special someone by trying new things. Take up a new hobby, learn a new skill…it will do wonders for your confidence.
- Don’t decide they’re too good for you
Nothing is more unattractive than visible insecurity. If you believe you’re not good enough to date the person you’re interested in, you’ll try too hard to impress. Instead, change things up a bit. Get to know them and see if they’re actually fun and interesting. Are they someone you want to date? We’re all pretty but if pretty is all they got, it’s not worth it! Don’t sell yourself short.
- Don’t overthink it
If you’re single and interested in someone, walk up to them and start a conversation! Simple. Don’t give your brain enough time to talk yourself out of it. It’s the same when making new friends. They won’t bite, and you could miss out on something great if you hesitate. (What if they’re the one?) Worried about rejection? It’s a part of life, but it shouldn’t hold you back. If there is one thing I’ve learned, it’s that rejection from one person brings you one step closer to a “yes” from someone else. This applies to dating, and pretty much everything else in life. Be brave.
