Finding “the one” seems to get harder and harder as more and more dating avenues open up. Perhaps the problem is we have too many options these days, from online dating sites like eHarmony to apps like Tinder and Bumble. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing, and too many dating apps and sites on top of the already hectic dating world seems to be causing more chaos than anything else. At any rate, whether you’re looking for your soulmate the old fashioned way by socializing, or taking a more modern approach by registering on an online dating site, here are some tips to consider when looking for “the one”:
1. Every person you meet is “the one.” Don’t marry every person you meet…be patient and let the relationship unfold as naturally and organically as possible. Choose to take it slow, even though we live in a fast paced world.
2. Allow your needs to be heard. Don’t suppress your emotions. Make it clear what your needs are, whether they are emotional or physical.
3. Let go of attachment to outcomes. Don’t let the attachment to a certain specific outcome deter you from enjoying what could be a very rewarding relationship. Let go of the need for a certain outcome, especially early on when meeting someone, and enjoy the ride!
