Dating is not as easy as it seems. Especially nowadays and if you’re a millennial. All of us are looking forward to the day we can change our status from “single” to in a “relationship”. Oddly enough, our relationships are the one thing that we neglect the most. We may be a champ in all the other aspects of our lives. It seems like we’re doing something else and expecting something else. It frustrates the hell out of a person.
Here are some ways you can navigate the world of dating.
CALL YOUR FRIENDS
A lot of people can share with you their success stories about them meeting their beau via some friends. So why can’t you be that person? Call up your most trusted friends and ask them to set you up. Make sure you tell them exactly what you’re looking for, so they know what they’re looking for.
FORGET THE RULES
It seems that the dating world has developed quite a lot of rules for itself. And maybe that’s the main problem. There are so many rules that nobody can follow all of them. Just trying to follow them makes dating very exhausting and not fun.
So break the rules. Get on your favorite dating app and start chatting. No need to follow the checklist someone emailed you last week. Be confident, be you.
GIVE SECOND CHANCES
Not everyone knows how to use these apps. You can log in to the best hookup apps and you’re going to find people who have no clue what they’re doing there. It doesn’t mean that one of them can’t be the right person. So don’t worry if someone hasn’t made the right kind of first impression. Give them some time.
NOTHING WRONG WITH A DATING APP
You may find this one a little surprising. Yes, there are a lot of rumors going around about online dating sites and apps. Yes, there are more chances of you getting catfished while you’re there. But that is just one aspect of it. According to statistics, nearly half of the US population that’s online has found their match or know of someone who’s found their match online. 49 percent of online dating app users stated that they were using the service to find an exclusive romantic relationship.
GO TO YOUR LOCAL EATERY ALONE
Everyone thinks it’s weird. How can I go to a bar, restaurant, bakery alone? But what people don’t think about is that it’s the best kind of opportunity to meet someone.
Find your favorite local watering hole and stopover on your way. It’s another way of meeting people locally.
BE FRIENDS FIRST
The thing that makes dating extremely hard for millennials is that they are accustomed to instant gratification. You can avoid that trap by being their friend first. That could make all the difference in the world. It’ll help you gain their trust and it’ll help you trust them. It’ll also make that sweet, sweet romance worth the wait. Or it’ll show you if there is romance in the future or not.
