Today is Valentine’s day….Yay! A day to celebrate love, exchange gifts and treat your partner or loved one to the highest level of affection. However, in life, there’s always two sides of the coin. As some people are enjoying the day to the fullest, there are some others who are all gloomy today because they’ll have to spend the next couple of hours alone and lonely.
Although the day should not be synonymous with expressing love to a partner only, it really should be with any loved one. But, our advice to those who would have wanted to enjoy the day with a significant other but unable to do so, this is our 50 cents for you – don’t give up – but try some of the dating resolutions below, so that by this time next year, you’ll hopefully be in a better spot, celebrating valentine’s day with a loved one!
I will stay positive: It’s very easy to get gloomy when the guys are not just coming and one’s biological age continues to tick. But, sometimes, the blokes are not coming because our negative thoughts are driving them away. So, from now on, always picture yourself with the guy of your dreams, and embrace the power of positive thinking in getting a man!
I will be more understanding of other’s shortcomings: Attitude is everything….we’ll say this over and over again. And, it may actually be your arrogant, condescending or intolerable attitude that is driving a potential suitor away. Search within your soul for such things that may be appalling to others, correct them and stat your journey to becoming a better person.
I will leverage on Social Media: Technology has changed the world, including how modern day relationships work. Never underestimate the power of Social Media – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc. in reconnecting with lost friends and developing a broader perspective on how relationships work. Not only are these media outlets therapeutic in nature, but they also connect you with people of like minds that as you communicate with, you may end up realizing that you have something in common, which may then spark a journey into that wish of yours….But, you have to be extremely careful with hooking up with total strangers, as that may actually spell disaster due to the fact that a lot of fake people are out there with all kinds of ulterior motives.
I will take referrals from friends seriously: In the past, most people use to shy away from having a friend or co-worker introduce them to a potential suitor. But, this is becoming more acceptable and a way to have someone that you know or trust vet the other person, and through a simple introduction set up a date for a chance to get things rolling. It doesn’t mean such hooking up through a date will always work, but at least, it gives you one more person to consider for a possible relationship or future together. So, the next time someone wants to introduce you to a friend, don’t hesitate – that may just be the moment you’ve been waiting for.
I will be more prayerful: But, the most important of your dating resolutions this year is this – Lean on God and the Power of Prayers to change all situations – because God is able to do much more than you can ever imagine or think of, including your search for a partner or significant other!
Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone!!!
