Do you feel like you’ve been single forever? While some women love being single, there are others that feel lonely and empty without someone to share their lives with. This is perfectly natural as long as it’s a special someone you are after, and not just anyone! Here are my top ten tips on how to get a boyfriend...
1. Remember That Being Single is Okay
If you are frantically waiting for that special someone, you might be coming across as desperate and that is instantly off-putting. Take some time to enjoy yourself, and remember why you are so amazing.
2. Think about Who You Want
Now you know who you are, think about what you want. Write down what is really important, and what can be negotiated. This will stop you settling for anything, and ensure that you look for people who you could actually have a future with!
3. Spread Your Wings!
Join a club that you love, get involved in a sport, learn a new skill. Don’t join because you’ll meet people, but you no doubt will! Enjoy yourself, and it will be a huge confidence boost, and a distraction while you are waiting for Mr. Right!
4. Be Confident
Been checking out that guy for a while? Go and introduce yourself. It might be scary, but you’ll demonstrate confidence and self reliance, which are both very attractive qualities!
5. Get to Know Them
Before you fall in love with every guy you meet, talk to them and see if they match your list. Look for similarities and differences, and see how you get on. It’s important that you know the man himself, and not your fantasy.
6. Make Friends
The best relationships stem from friendships, so take your time and get to know him as a friend. As well as being the perfect base, it also means you’ll be pre warned about any bad habits, and you’re likely to know about his past relationships.
7. Make Him Feel Comfortable
It can be a nerve racking job asking a girl out, so make him feel comfortable around you. This will mean he feels able to make a move should he want too, and you can do the same. Even if nothing happens, you’ll have an amazing guy friend!
8. Read the Signs
Think about whether he likes you too. Does he compliment you a lot, spend lots of time with you and flirt occasionally? Or is he really treating you like a best friend? Reading the signs can save you the heartache of unreturned love.
9. Be an Amazing Girl!
By being his friend, you risk letting him see your bad points. Counter this by showing him how pretty, bubbly, intelligent and happy you are. Show him who you really are!
10. Ask Him out!
If he’s showing all the signs, and you’re feeling it too, then ask him out! Don’t leave it up to him, be a modern girl and take it in hand. At least that way you know where you stand, and confidence is an amazing quality.
If it doesn’t work out, remember that it isn’t your fault, and you can always find someone else. Take a few days to repair yourself, then get out there and find someone else! While you might not find love first time, you’ll make friends and have fun in the process. Have you got a tip for finding true love? Please share it with me!
