Tips for Finding the Right One
This mind map summarizes ten practical tips. Finding the right person you want to spend your rest life with is an arduous task. An unfortunate truth is that the right person doesn't always come at the right time. So what should you do while awaiting?
1. Know Yourself.
Unless having a clear sense of who you are, you'll never know what kind of person fits you. Start to evaluate yourself, trying to find out your personality, hobbies, life values, things you don't like, physical attractive parts, etc.
2. Improve Yourself.
People always say if you want to get the person you are dreaming for, first become that kind of person yourself. Spend time to invest on yourself. Learn how to be interesting, kind, caring, and unselfish. Identify your character defects and change them. Become more well rounded. Get a hobby. There are a lot you can do to make yourself a better person before he/she comes.
3. Rise above past mistakes.
Don't let a break up bring you down. Start new not only means forget the past memories that make you uncomfortable, but also forgive yourself about the things you regret. Learn from past relationship mistakes and make the next one better.
4. Talk with friends and families.
Why is this important? Share your anxiety and loneliness with people who cares you. You can get a warm hug or a piece of advice from them. Ask them for tips on the type of guy they think you need, and don't be insulted when they tell you the truth. They probably know you better than you know yourself.
5. No one is perfect.
Don't expect a perfect guy with everything you dreamed of. We all know that there is no Mr. Perfect in the world. Don't be too picky. Sometimes we just need a little more tolerance to make it work.
6. Know what kind of guys fit you.
What kind of person he needs to be? What qualities should he have? Do you need him to be handsome, caring, or talkative? Does he need to have the same faith? Ask yourself those questions.
7. Try different channels.
Consider different channels, such as online dating sites and matchmaker services. As technology becomes more ingrained in our everyday lives, more people are turning to the internet for social purposes. And over the past few years, this has become a more accepted form of communication. It used to be that only the "desperate and dateless" used personal ads, but now it is commonplace for almost anyone to take advantage of web pages for matchmaking.
8. Go to the right places.
Go to the places where you expect him to appear. If you want a man of faith you will be more apt to find him in church than in a bar. If you hope him to have the same hobbies, attend more clubs and get to know people having the same interests.
9. Consider blind dates.
Why not! There is a possibility that you may meet your soul mate. Though you might not meet the man/women of your dreams on this blind date, you might gain something else. You might meet someone who you have a lot in common with, have fun with and enjoy their company.
10. Be patient.
It may take some time to discover what appeals to you and why. You may make a few friends, and even break a heart or two. But never give up. There are good men out there. Keep to it.
