While most modern women don’t place the same importance upon finding a mate as earlier generations of women did, many women still desire a partner. Finding a partner and cultivating the love you share can be difficult, particularly if both individuals are wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of daily living. To ensure that your search for love is as fruitful as possible, consider your relationship-building tactics and determine if there are ways in which you could modify them to improve the overall effectiveness of your quest.
For many love-hungry women, the most difficult task is finding a man. Many women lament the fact that there are no good men available. In truth, the quality guy you desire is likely out there if you know where to look. MSN Lifestyle recommends that sassy singles explore an array of options when looking for love, checking out community events, keeping their eyes open in the workplace, attending an assortment of social gatherings and even allowing well-meaning friends to attempt fix-ups.
The Physical Cues
If you want a man, you have to make yourself available to them. “Cosmopolitan Magazine” suggests that singles put effort into physically indicating their interest. When in a social setting, keep a smile on your face. Instead of timidly hiding yourself in a corner, face out into the room so that all can see you, and you can peruse your prospects. If you see a guy you like, make eye contact with him and send him the “you will not be turned down” vibe to put him at ease.
Selecting the Partner
While you may be eager to get a guy, settling for an inappropriate mate is a certain way to encounter love troubles. Don’t let your eagerness for a relationship lead you to pick a poor partner. Instead, hold out for someone with whom you share common interests and have a mutual attraction. While this practice may keep you single a bit longer, it will likely ensure that the guy you do end up with is quality and saves you some avoidable heartache.
In an attempt to avoid singledom, some women cling to faltering relationships. When your relationship seems to be hitting the skids, keep in mind that there are worse things in this world than being single. Don’t stagnate in a failing relationship and miss out on opportunities to find a quality man. While you don’t want to pull the plug the first time you encounter a simple snafu, you also don’t want to try to force a relationship that just isn’t working. Listen to your instincts, and put your relationship out to pasture when you feel the time is right.
Never Too Old
Some seasoned sisters feel that they are too old to find love and give up on the quest, resigning themselves to lonely nights with a meal for one. While a rocky love past may make it seem like love is not in the cards for you, it is important to remember that there is no maximum age for finding love. As “Psychology Today Magazine” reports, lovelorn individuals of all ages find love, even when they aren’t looking.
