Three Step Formula for How to Find Someone to Date
Step One: Make Your Online Presence Do The Work
Recent academic research has shown that about one third of couples getting married met online and experience higher marital satisfaction than those who met offline. About half met on dating websites and the rest met over a mix of social media sites or other sites.
Meeting people online can feel scary for some who have not used it before. Use your gut and take the same precautions about meeting people you do in the real world. Plan to spend about 30 minutes to 1 hour a day on interacting with potential matches.
Online Dating: Get an online dating profile up on at least one of the sites out there. Tip: men and women are different and so your profile needs to be written for who you are trying to attract. If you'd like more support for online dating, check out our offerings.
Social Media: Considering making your Facebook or Linked In profiles searchable and have a fantastic photo up. There are plenty of ways to maintain your safety on these sites while still flying the happy and single flag. Lots of old flames are finding their way to each other through social media connections.
Step Two: The Solo Adventure
Where are the men or women you want to meet hanging out?
The strategy is plain and simple. Go where your matches are going.
This is a little different than what others may be telling you about going where you want to go and while you are busy being happy you’ll just happen to meet your match.
Your perfect match may have different habits while single than when partnered. Hey guys, how many women are hanging out at the driving range? Hey ladies…that’s one more idea. Come to think of it, we've met men at the bar at the golf course.
Plan to go on two to four solo adventures a month in your search for someone to date and check out our resources on meeting singles.
If you’re looking for a successful and masculine man who would appreciate a woman who cooks for him, he might be having dinner at the bar of his favorite steak house a few nights a week.
Looking for a sporty guy, find him at the local sports bar on a night when there are no big games playing on the TVs (otherwise he will only be focused on the game).
Looking for a woman who is sophisticated and educated? Try an evening mixer at a local museum.
Looking for a down to earth girl? Try a local coffee shop.
