There are millions of people out there, who spend each day of their lives searching for true love. Finding that one person who makes you complete is a noble goal, but why is it taking so long? In the infamous words of The Supremes, ‘you can’t hurry love, no, you just have to wait’. The point is that you can’t rush the process, but you need to be ready when that special someone happens to walk into your life. Read this guide to help you find real love and hold onto it.
Don’t try to be someone you are not
If you are dating people at the moment, make sure that you are not making one of the major dating mistakes. If, when you sit down to dinner with someone, you are putting on a front, you’re wasting your time. Don’t try to be what other people want you to be. Be yourself! You want to find someone who loves you just the way you are. If you act fake and pretend to be something that you are not, it will wear thin quickly and things won’t work out.
Keep an eye out for the real thing
If you are not paying attention, love could pass you by without you even noticing. You need to know if your soul mate is right around the corner so that you are ready for them. Why not ask a psychic whether they see true love in your near future? There are sites, like Psychic-24 that will give you a quick reading. At least if you know that real love is coming your way, you can stop obsessing over it and start relaxing. Everyone deserves real love, and so you need to know when you are going to get it.
Look in the unexpected places
Hitting up bars and clubs each weekend is no way to find yourself a partner. The people you meet on nights out will rarely turn out to be dating material. Instead, you need to look in unusual places for potential partners. You might be shopping at the local store or studying in the library, when the right person for you walks into the room. Often, the perfect person for you is someone who shares your interests. If you meet someone when you are out and about, you will have a better chance of hitting it off.
Compromise and let things go
When you start seeing someone who could be your true love, you need to work at the relationship. For the first few months, everything will be exciting. You will get butterflies in your stomach when you are about to see them, and you will never want to leave their side. After that feeling wears off, you have to work hard to keep the foundations of your relationship strong. That means you can’t get angry at stupid little things. Your partner will not be perfect – nobody can be.
Separate reality from your fantasies
Let’s face it, Disney has ruined our expectations when it comes to relationships. If you think that being in love is all about living happily ever after, you are in for a shock. You must not compare a real life relationship with your fantasy relationship. When you decide to be with someone, you need to understand what that means. Tell your partner what you need from them by all means, but be realistic. If you want them to dote on you all the time and make you breakfast in bed each morning, that is ridiculous. Real relationships take work and communication if you want them to succeed.
And, finally, remember…
When you have found the one, it is vital that you do everything you can to hold onto them. Over time, people tend to become lazy and fail to keep the spark alive in their relationship. Don’t make that mistake.
