Dating Rules to Meet Someone

Struggling to meet someone new? Following these
simple yet insightful dating rules might be just be exactly
what you need.

Love Yourself First

Have you ever noticed that happy people get more
attention? And if you are happy with yourself, it shows.
So in order to attract more people into your life for
dating purposes, focus on the things that make you
happy. Try writing a large piece of paper full of ideas
that you can use in a pinch, such as taking a hot bath,
going for a bike ride or filling your home with plants.
Then, pick three items from this list every day with
conscious effort, knowing that the time you take
tending to increasing your own personal joy will
increase the pull others feel to learn more about who
you are.

Review Your Relationship Expectations

If you shake your head within seconds of meeting
someone, rank them against a checklist in your head, or
have stringent guidelines about who you will and won't
meet, it is time to revamp your relationship
expectations. When trying to meet someone new, it is
imperative that you let go of your preconceived notions
about who the perfect partner is.
Cut Ties To Your Ex
Although this dating rule may be contentious for some
readers, it is still an important step in the dating
process. Just like a spring cleaning clears your space of
clutter and cobwebs, removing an ex still present in
your life after a breakup can free you to meet someone
new. Of course there are circumstances where this may
not be possible - such as if you have children together
or work in the same office. But whenever possible, you
need to remove your ex from your personal life, even if
it is only temporary.

Let Go of Dating Myths

Dating is exhausting and not worth my time. I'll never
meet The One. All the good ones are taken.
These three statements are myths about dating that
seriously require thought if they are going through your
head. Dating isn't about negative thoughts; its about
meeting as many interesting people as you can while
having faith that you'll meet someone special.
Following this dating rule means you need to stop
focusing on the person you are trying to meet, and
focus on the spotlight instead on yourself.

Face Your Dating Fears

Feeling anxious or upset about the prospects of meeting
someone new usually translates into fear. If the
thoughts of never meeting someone special, being upset
that your last partner refused to commit, or convincing
yourself you aren't worth dating are taking over your
thought processes, it is time to face your dating fears.
By not following this dating rule and ignoring the issues,
your inability to risk losing your heart will stop you
from meeting someone special.

Learn How To Flirt

Too attract new people, you'll need to show them you
are interested - which means learning how to flirt.
Virtually every single first encounter that leads to more
starts with a smile, so this dating rule suggests smiling at
everyone you encounter, without qualification. As well,
understanding body language is a crucial part of
meeting someone new and cannot be overlooked.

Accept All Dates

If you want to follow the rules of dating to meet
someone new, its time to stop making snap decisions
about the people who ask you out for a date. If
someone asks you for coffee, it is your responsibility to
accept it, barring any issues with safety of course. A
date is just a date - not a marriage proposal. It'll only
take an hour or two, and by accepting all dates you'll
move closer to meeting someone special while
perfecting your notions of what kind of person you'd
like to have in your life.
