Are you one of the many individuals starting 2014 single?

If you are don't worry because you are not alone. There are a lot of individuals like you hoping this is their year to meet that special someone.

While a person is in this what seems to be a never ever ending holding pattern, there are plenty of things they can do.

One thing is don't become a serial dater. Don't just go out on dates because a person asks. Be selective. Have an idea of the type of person you are interested in and date accordingly. For instance if you like a certain type of music, food, atmosphere or have a hobby you enjoy find someone who can relate. This is a good way to start a date off on high note.

Another thing to do is stop choosing the person that has the look you like. Take it one step further and try to get to know someone from the inside out and not from the outside in. this is a good way to talk to people that in some cases you would not consider talking to. You never know what's on the inside could be exactly the person for you.

Last but not least, be hopeful. A person should never give up hope on meeting the person that is right for them. After all if you don't have hope for yourself who will?
