Dating Advice For Attracting Your Soulmate & Ideal Relationship

Whenever you start dating someone new, it's normal to wonder if you've finally met your soulmate. Is your new guy really "the one"; are there any obvious soulmate signs, or is this just a temporary attraction?

If you're looking to stop wasting your time and investing your emotional energy into someone who won't work out, then you need to stop focusing on dating and instead turn your attention inward to your own personality traits.

If you want the rules of attraction to work in your favor, then you need to make sure instead of just asking, "Who is my soulmate?" that you really think about who you want that person to be.

When you were young, you probably thought that finding your soulmate was easy. Just like in the fairy tales, when both the princess and prince laid their eyes on each other, they instantly know they'll live happily ever after. No failed relationships, no exes.

But as you grow old and experience dating — or experience ending a relationship — you realize it takes time before you can tell if a person is the one for you.

If you're new in the dating scene and want to know how to attract the one for you, or if you have failed dates and relationships because you constantly attract the wrong person in your life, then you need to understand how attraction really works and how to search for Mr. Right instead of Mr. Right Now.

Here are 4 things you need to develop while dating in order to attract your true soulmate into your life:

1. Know who you are

There is no right formula in attracting the right person. The only key here is to know yourself and become the person you truly want to be.

How would you know what traits you are looking for in a partner when you don’t know what you like and want? You have to know yourself first.

Identify your values, beliefs, and principles in life. Once you have identified these, what you may look for in a partner should have the same or respects your values, beliefs, and principles.

2. Accept your own flaws

There is no such thing as a perfect person.

Learn to accept and appreciate your flaws so that when you meet that someone, she/he will also accept your flaws and appreciate them as part of who you are.

Your flaws are what make you different from others. On the other way around, you should also accept the imperfections of your potential partner.

3. Be the type of person your potential soulmate would want

Become the type of person that will attract your ideal partner.

For example, if you want someone who is confident, be confident, too. If you are looking for a physically fit partner, become physically fit, too.

Don’t only focus on your desire; think about what might be the characteristics your potential partner is looking for their other half.

4. Don't stress about being single for a little while

Don't be pressured if it takes a while for you to find the right person for you. You will find and meet that person at the right time. Don't be distraught over failed dates and relationships; it's part of the process.

Learn from it, move on and try again. Allow life to take control, and enjoy your time meeting new people.
