Hate the single life but hate online dating even more? That doesn’t mean you just give up on finding love.
Take a look at your social calendar from the past month. How proactive have you been lately? How many dates have you gone on?
If being in a loving relationship within the next 12 months is your goal, then you must go on a few good, solid first dates each month. So, where to find those first date prospects?
If you’re disillusioned with online dating or if you’re just not comfortable putting yourself out there in that way, here are some fun, alternate options definitely worth your consideration:
1. Singles Events. Dating well takes practice, and the best way to get that practice is to surround yourself with single people, and do so often. With that in mind, I encourage you to attend singles gatherings twice a month. Do a quick Google search to find Meet Up groups, speed dating and singles events clubs in your area.
Your mission while you’re there at the event? To bring a smile to the face of each person you meet. Bring personal cards so you can easily share your contact information with each new friend.
2. Dating Coaches. We don’t know what we don’t know and we can’t see our own blind spots, right? Dating coaches can give you tips on what you might be doing wrong and what you may want to do going forward. Luckily, some of the best dating coaches provide lots of free advice through blogs, podcasts, webinars and some offer a free introductory call.
