When you’re single, it can feel like there is nobody on the planet you’d like to go on a date with, and sometimes it seems like nobody wants to go on a date with you, either! Before you declare that you’re going to be single forever and give up on the whole dating thing, read this.
Here are 3 things you should do if you can’t get a date.
1. Try something different. If you’re always going to the same restaurants, bars and clubs night after night, you’re going to keep getting the same results. The best way to meet new people is to switch up your routine. Do you frequently workout in the gym bright and early in the a.m? Try going in at night and you might be surprised with who you meet. It’s important, not to mention fun, to step outside of your comfort zone from time to time.
2. Try Online Dating. It’s no secret that online dating is one of the most popular ways to get a date these days. Simply sign up, create a profile and start looking for people in your area. Sometimes you can even score a date for that very night! Be careful though, and use your best judgement. Remember that until you’ve met in person and spent time together, you really don’t know each other at all. Keep private information under wraps, and always tell a friend where you are going. The best thing about online dating is that you’re opening yourself up to a whole new world of people you wouldn’t have met otherwise and can suddenly make the bar scene seem very unappealing!
3. Ask your friends and family. Yes, ask them to set you up! Let your family and social network know that you are single and ready to mingle, and they will probably overload you with potential date ideas! Everyone loves to be a matchmaker. Don’t be shy about it-this is what friends are for. Plus, your friends and family are already invested in your happiness and well being, meaning they are highly unlikely to set you up with someone terrible. You never know if your best friends husband has a hot single coworker until you ask! Instead of feeling like you’ll never date again, take control of your dating life! Try these tactics and watch your dating schedule fill right up.
