New year, new me, right? Well, some of us wholeheartedly stick to that believe and if you don’t slip back into old habits, it means that you are becoming a better person each year. But wait, you’re still single? Why not try to change that this year. New year, new guys to date!
Perhaps 2019 will be your lucky year and you’ll find mister right straight away. Experience, however, taught us that it usually doesn’t come that simple. This isn’t an issue. Just keep your head up, stay positive and get ready for that first date!
Change it up!
Whether you just ended your relationship or went from date to date back in 2018, it’s time to break the mold. It might be a little unfair for the person who’s taking you out, or the person you take out, but you can only go for dinner and drinks for so many times. It’s a fairly safe idea, yet also rather boring. Now this is coming from a man’s point of view, but ladies take the initiative. If you want to make sure you have a good (first) date you should plan the whole thing.
What?! Doesn’t that seem lazy? Well, maybe a bit, but then again, us guys trust that you girls can plan a killer night out! It also challenges us to come up with a worthy follow-up. You see? The dynamic is already starting. If you need some quick inspiration? Check here!
Go for serious
It’s also a good idea to start 2019 off with a serious person. Why hop from guy to guy if you can find the one that makes you hopeful for the future. Some guys aren’t worth the attention. I know that, because some girls aren’t worth mine either. It’s futile to waste your time on dudes that won’t see you for anything else than a quickie and move on.
I’m not saying that this is the year you’re going to find the one, settle down and plan the rest of your lives together, unless that’s what you are going for. In that case we say: you go girl!
Anyway, it’s best to go for a serious man and be serious yourself. Make him wait a little bit, let him cherish the moments he has now and gradually increase the intensity.
Lastly: know who to date
This tip obviously ties in with the previous one. Know who to date. Perhaps you’ve known him for a while now, but never made that first step, or you just didn’t meet him yet. If it’s the former, I’d say go for it. You’ve got nothing to lose, especially if you felt some chemistry before. So don’t wait, take action. Like I said, most guys really appreciate it when a girl takes the initiative.
If it’s the latter, then you have to go and look for that special dude! However, that’s not always easy. We all know that most people act different than they really are during the first date(s). So it’s hard to get to know someone.
Dating-apps usually don’t help. From horrible opening lines on Tinder to the stalkers on Happn’. There isn’t much good left. So, perhaps this app will help. Bumble gives you the opportunity to talk first. So no one will be bothering you with tasteless jokes or stalky texts. You do the talking, as long as you take … The initiative!
