The new year brings new beginnings and if finding true love is on your resolution list, take note: you don't have to hang out at a bar or sit through another awkward blind date in order to find "the one." Consider upgrading your dating tactics with the help of Exclusive Matchmaking, a professional matchmaking service geared to help you find your soul mate.
Determine Your Dating Style
You may not realize it but we all tend to follow a certain pattern when we are out searching for a new mate. Perhaps you pursue men who are the life of the party or women who look like a walking billboard for designer brands. Maybe you prefer the needy type or the doesn't-give-you-the-time-of-day type. Professional Matchmaker Susan Trombetti encourages singles to take a deeper look as to what's not working in their dating life and to actively address the issues. "Try a new approach," she encourages. "Discover what didn't work out for you last year and try something different." Consider sitting down and mulling over the types of character traits you wish to find in your next partner. Pinpoint the character traits you also don't want to deal with that way when you see the telltale signs of, say, a jealous partner, you can plan your exit strategy.
Turn That Frown Upside Down
Yes, the traffic in this area stinks and the weather has been pretty screwy lately and the economy sucks and the job market is looking dismal and the flu is going around however try not to bring out Negative Nancy the next time you're out on a date. "Look for the positive and you will attract positive people in your life," says Trombetti. The same can be said about your next date. Don't sit there and try to sniff out that one little quirk that may cause your new potential relationship to hit the skids. Stay away from divulging any horror dating stories; no one wants to hear about your crazy ex-lover or the dozens of crazy/stupid/loser guys you met prior to your current potential mate. Think positive topics like how you helped your co-workers win that major contract or the time you volunteered at a homeless shelter. If you can't think of any positive stories to talk about, maybe it's time to incorporate some positive habits in your life.
This Isn't a Job Interview
That cute guy or girl sitting next to you at the hip new downtown restaurant may have the potential to become your next long-term relationship however now is not the time to grill him or her about their 401K portfolio. "Women and men don't realize it but constant, incessant questioning is hostile and won't lead to a second date," explains Trombetti. Improve your flirting techniques or learn how to make better small talk. "Money, looks, car, job, and height are all superficial reasons to date someone or to turn someone away." Instead of inquiring about his or her credit rating status, ask intriguing questions like what's the best book you've ever read, where do you like to go on vacation or have you seen any good movies lately. And, remember to smile, it's everyone's best asset.
