How To Find Your Soulmate Using The Law Of Attraction (When Online Dating Apps Aren't Working)

Stop wasting your time.

Millions of singles use online dating apps thinking it's the best way to learn how to find your soulmate and fall in love in today's digital world. But if you're not also utilizing the power of the Law of Attraction, you might not be having much luck.

If that's the case, you're not alone.

Many frustrated men and women have become increasingly disillusioned with the process and re-iterate the same thing over and over: "It’s great to have a lot of choices, but it takes a lot of time and I don’t seem to meet anyone I have much chemistry with."

This makes sense because, in some ways, using a computer to find your soulmate is like trying to cook a souffle in a microwave.

Some things just require time, effort and the human touch.

What are some advantages to online dating apps?

  1. You can reach and meet more singles like yourself.
  2. It's relatively inexpensive.
  3. Potential matches have enough information available for efficient sorting.
  4. You can be anonymous.
  5. It's easy to control most aspects of the process.

What are the disadvantages to looking for love online?

  1. There is an overwhelming number of choices.
  2. It encourages the "shopping" mentality.
  3. Many users are less than truthful.
  4. Some users are game players, predators, and cheaters.
  5. You get complacent and eventually start relying on the internet while excluding other options. 

Today’s singles can easily fall into a fairytale-minded trap and rely on their computer a bit too much, complacently expecting the internet to deliver their soulmate to them.

However, if you're not also taking into account the roles chemistry and the Law of Attraction play in finding a soulmate, online dating apps might not be effective.

Chemistry is critically important for a successful relationship.

Everyone wants a partner they feel a strong chemistry with, since relationships would be pretty dry and unsustainable without it. But you should still consciously identify your requirements, needs, and wants, too. You need both! 

Chemistry is the radar that helps you find your target and lets you use your requirements, needs, and wants to decide "yes" or "no".

The Law of Attraction is inescapable and either works for you or against you.

If you’re "busy" or "shy" and the internet is your only means of reaching potential partners, you’re hiding behind your computer and therefore, the Law of Attraction is not likely to help you.

The Law of Attraction states that "like attracts like" and "energy follows attention", meaning your results reflect your thoughts and your actions. It's like the law of gravity. Just like "what goes up must come down", you can’t avoid or change the principle that "like attracts like", try as you might.

If you’re hiding behind your computer, what people, relationships, and results are you likely to attract?

Here are 5 ways to use the Law of Attraction principles that will help you learn how to find your soulmate when online dating apps aren't working.

1. Use your support community.

Most people find their soulmate through someone they know, so don’t be a lone ranger (another dating trap!) and lean on your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors to assist you in meeting potential partners.

2. Start a dating pool or networking group.

Get a group of singles together (any gender mix) to support each other to meet potential partners.

Most singles know many other singles of both genders, so pool your resources and do some matchmaking for each other!

3. Reach out to people.

In today’s busy world with cell phones, texting, instant messaging, e-mail, and dating apps promoting impersonal ways of interacting with others, it’s easy to forget the lost art of engagement with real people that are right in front of you.

Make an effort to reach out to the people you come into contact with in your everyday life and watch your relationships blossom.

4. Make more friends.

Since most people find their soulmate through someone they know, be open to developing new friendships and expanding your support community.

Chances are you already have acquaintances at work and other places that you would enjoy spending more time with. Friends are easier to find than dates and friendships often last longer than romantic relationships!

5. Get involved.

Too many singles lead isolated lives centered around work, home, and a few friends. Participating in clubs, groups, classes, charities, and church/temple is the most important way you can leverage the Law of Attraction to help you find your soulmate.

You’ll meet new people, make new friends, and pursue hobbies and interests important to you that bring you in contact with other compatible singles.

While technology can help us in many ways, let’s not forget that, as humans, we are social beings.

Finding your soulmate is a relationship goal that is most effectively achieved by getting away from your computer and living a full, rich life among real people, doing the things you enjoy that make your life meaningful.

As the ancient Roman playwright Terence once said, "Moderation in all things." Do you think he meant the internet as well?
