There's no doubt that we love our parents. But we can admit that they can sometimes be a bit insufferable, especially when it comes to our love lives. Even though it's incredibly sweet that our parents are so invested in making sure that we find love and settle down with the right person, the pressure can end up becoming super intense. To be honest, having them constantly cross the line is just plain frustrating. Just because we're single doesn't mean that we aren't actively looking (or that we need the help). Now, convincing our mothers that we're happy with our lives (not to mention saying that without it coming across in a really negative way) is the hard part.
Ladies, we've got to be honest with you. It goes without saying that trying to find the right guy to settle down with can be super frustrating. It doesn't help that this whole idea of falling head over heels for Prince Charming and waiting for him to sweep us off our feet is pretty unrealistic. The crazy thing is that we become SO dedicated to finding love that we forget that just because we're in a relationship doesn't mean that we can't have our own life. In fact, having something that we love to do is super sexy!
Having to constantly jump back into the dating pool to find love can make it super frustrating to figure out why things haven't worked out. What's really stopping us from finding Mr. Right and is there anything we can do to change it?
For some reason, people usually think that the older they get, the less chances there are for them to find their love. We're here to tell you that this couldn't be further from the truth! It doesn't matter if you've hit the 30, 40, or 50 benchmark; when it really comes down to it, rushing into dating someone just for the sake of having boyfriend or girlfriend won't do you any favors. Just because you're getting older doesn't mean that you have to settle for with Mr. Right Now when the right guy is out there. Loneliness should never be an excuse to stay in a relationship if you're just not into it.
If you're considering jumping back into the dating scene, knowing exactly what you are looking for can have some major perks. However, being so deadset on checking things off of your dating checklist (that is way too specific) can actually end up working against you. There's a difference between having an idea of the type of guy or relationship you are looking for and closing yourself off from other opportunities.
How are you supposed to find love if you don't put yourself out there?
We think it's safe to say that we've all had that one date that set the bar for everyone else — Where he has that "Je ne sais quoi" (that "IT" factor) about him that totally pulls us in and makes us what to know more. It's pretty much a given that how we carry ourselves can play a major role in our well our night ends. So when it comes to the dating game, how do we get that "it" factor, exactly?
Even after being together for years, there's something beautiful about still being able to get that feeling of butterlies in our stomachs whenever our significant other looks at us. We all want to have that special connection with someone that makes us feel like waking up next to them in the morning is the best part of our day. Seeing so many people falling — and staying in love seriously makes us wonder if there's a guidebook lying around that can show us all how to approach relationships. Seriously, can someone hook us up with the secret to finding real love — And actually making it work?
Why is it that the older we get, the harder it is for us to jump back into the dating scene? Because of societal expectations, we often feel like we've missed out by not marrying and having kids by a certain age. But is it seriously still possible to find love even as we get older?
Somewhere along the line we've convinced ourselves that we can't be happy in a relationship unless our partner is also our soulmate. But does this perfect person really exist? Is there just one "The One"?
So you filled out an online dating profile and yet there has not been a flood of emails. Is it possible that you're doing something wrong? Well, this dating advice for men will definitely help you score that first (and second) date.
