It is no secret that the world of dating has completely changed over the past few years. I mean let’s face it- we are now being judged by the swipe of a finger on dating apps. And while being single in this generation might be confusing at times, here are 5 tips that will keep you on track to finding your soulmate.

1) Stop the Stigma

Remove the stigma that is attached to being single and only seems to grow with age. It is okay to be single and work on yourself before you look for the right guy. Use this time that you are single to build your confidence and really think about what you want in a man. It is important to take your time and find the right guy that you want to spend the rest of your life with- after-all nobody wants to settle.

2) Put Yourself Out There

Most people are living in a fairytale and are waiting for their prince charming to come knocking on their door. But it is time to wake up to reality; you need to fully put yourself out there in order to meet your prince. This does not just mean stepping outside your front door, this means entering the world of online dating with full force. Join dating sites like match.com and dating apps like JSwipe, Tinder and Happn to meet single people that are looking for love around your area.

3) Get Active

When it comes to meeting your soulmate, you are probably looking in nearly all the wrong places. Your chances of meeting the guy of your dreams on a ladies night out are pretty slim. Join clubs/ organizations and attend events that you are interested in to meet a guy with similar interests. For instance if you like to run join a running group, if you like charity join a charity organization; it will make you happy to do what you love while also surrounding you with people with similar interests.


4) Be friendly

Once you are in an environment where you are meeting quality people, it is important to be friendly. This means taking your earphones out and saying hi to the cute guy at the coffee shop. Stay positive and be outgoing; it is amazing how far even a smile can go.

5) Don’t be Afraid to Fall

Nobody said dating was easy. You will have many misses before hit your dream guy. You can’t be afraid to get hurt in the process of finding your true love, if you keep your guard up when you meet someone new then you are not opening yourself up to love. You have to learn from every relationship and take it as a learning experience to getting a step closer to finding your potential soulmate.
