Many women long for a romantic connection. The desire to love and be loved can lead some to rush into relationships or compromise their wants and settle for a Mr. Right-Now instead of the sought-after Mr. Right. If you are on a relentless quest for a quality relationship but keep coming up dry, consider some ways in which you could increase the effectiveness of your hunt and more quickly produce the love that you desire. Trust us- a good relationship is worth the wait.
Stop and Think
Think critically about who you are and what you want. You can’t find the love you want if you don’t know what you want. Try to step back from yourself and take an honest look at who you are and what makes you tick to ensure that your next relationship isn’t just a lustful attraction but instead a meeting of the minds.
Try New Methods
Try new romance-seeking methods. Some women resist trying different options. Don’t just rely on bars or hope to meet someone passively. Instead, actively seek love by exploring Internet dating, allowing friends to set you up, or even giving singles mixers or speed dating a go. You never know what you might find.
Take a Closer Look
Explore previously platonic relationships. While you think that one of your best guy buds is nothing more than a friend, you may find that some love could bloom if given the option. “The Huffington Post” reports that women finding love with men who are just friends is highly common, particularly in a digital world full of Facebook friending and tweeting. Don’t force love where there isn’t any romantic inkling, but at the same time, don’t refuse to let love develop where the opportunity exists.
Don’t Hang On
End relationships that are unproductive promptly. Some women hang on to relationships that they know are wanting simply because they don’t want the stigma of being single. In truth, being single is better than stagnating in a stinker of a relationship. Once you decide you are through with a guy, don’t string him along and hope the relationship gets better. Instead, pull the plug and seek a new romantic conquest.
Get positive about your life. Obsessing about your love life–or your lack of a love life–is not productive, reports CNN. Instead of spending your every waking hour bemoaning the fact that you are still single, think positive thoughts and push negativity out of your head. Positive thoughts lead to happiness and happiness may just lead you to find the love of your life.
