Tips To Prepare Yourself This Spring For Dating

After a long, frigid winter, it’s spring, arguably the best time to clean your house, sort your wardrobe, get rid of clutter all with the aim of preparing for summer. Also, if your winter was mostly lonely and full of unmet expectations in your love life; then spring presents an excellent time to get back out there. These tips to prepare yourself this spring for dating will get your dating life set up. 

According to a study conducted by a dating company, 29% of relationships end during spring. It also unsurprisingly it’s the season where online dating sites see a surge in user activity. Here are some tips to prepare yourself this spring for dating.

Spring is simply a good time to assess what is and is not working in regards to your dating and love life. To help you get a fresh perspective before summer arrives, here are a few simple tips. 

Get Rid of Negative Thoughts

To live a happy and healthy life, it’s important to be positive and grateful. But did you know this also plays a significant role when it comes to dating? Being thankful for what you have and having a positive perspective almost always attracts more things to be grateful for. You’ll look at your life from a positive angle. 

This implies taking bad dates as great stories and learning experiences. If someone ghosts you, then think of it as a bullet dodged. Do not dwell on the negative as this will only have a negative impact on your dating life. 

Everything that you do contributes to your growth as an individual and helps you improve and ideally inspires you to do better in the future. It can be annoying to experience a bad date after another, but the best takeaway in such a case is the experience. 

Individuals who are positive regardless of the outcome tend to have more things to be grateful for, and this leads to happiness. And everyone in this day and age wants to be around happy people. 

If possible, keep a gratitude journal and record everything that was positive as well as things learned. Overall, this will help you feel more positive, and in turn, attract people who are ideally positive. 

Sticking to One ‘Type’

What I’ve come to learn is that we are more often than not, wrong about our ‘type’. You can put down the aspects of a person that you’re after, including education, career, religion, etc., only to discover that you were wrong in regards to what’s best for you. 

Established Sydney civil celebrant Johan Khoury explains that when it comes to dating and love life, connection matters more than any other aspect. He says, “I have married hundreds of couples in Sydney from different backgrounds, and you’d be surprised to find some interesting matches that are incredibly happy and are a great fit for each other.” So, focus on that instead of the other stats, and you’ll be surprised at what you are really into. 

Make Space

Chances are your closet is full of clothes that you barely wear, that don’t fit and no room for new ones that will make you feel confident and fabulous. Well, when it comes to dating and love life, the same applies. It is high time you let go of those individuals that don’t really make you happy. 

Do you have an individual who constantly gives you mixed signals, unavailable most of the time, constantly criticizes you, flirts with your friends, or is unreasonably jealous? Well, these are the kind of people that you need to cut off. If someone is always dragging you down and can’t make you happy, it is time you made space for new individuals. 

Connect With New Before and Strive to Be More Social

When you want to get into dating, the last thing you want is to hibernate as you did throughout winter. Spring presents good weather and mood to mingle, and so, you shouldn’t be wasting any time. Of course, there are steps to getting back out there, so don’t rush it. 

Start small by conversing with strangers and joining meetup groups. Pay attention to your nonverbal language, such as posture and eye contact. Ideally, make a habit of smiling. Conversational skills are also essential when it comes to meeting new people in the dating arena. You will be forced to get out of your comfort zone and meet new people and try new activities. 

Open the windows to allow some fresh air, go outside, and meet new individuals. If you want to get back into dating and explore your love life, it will be extremely hard to do so when eating takeout and sitting in front of the TV every day. 

Look Good

This is a no-brainer. Looking good makes you confident and this, in turn, attracts love, and the first impression is everything. The energy you give out is everything as it shows your character. 

According to the owner at romantic retreat Lovestone Cottages, Spring is an excellent time to spruce up your look and dating profile. She says, “One thing to keep in mind is that you do not need to spend a fortune to attract someone or start dating. Get a few nice clothes that look great on you.” 

Even something as small as wearing bright colours tends to brighten the day. As for the dating profile, refresh the bio, upload some new photos, and even give another website a shot. You never know. All these things can ideally play a huge role in making you feel better and confident, an essential aspect when it comes to dating. 

If you’re looking to go one step further, how about focus on looking fitter and leaner? According to weight loss hypnotherapist Christopher Michaels at Destiny Hypnotherapy, getting lean and losing some fat is not as daunting a task as it may seem. “There’s no excuse not to get back out there. Just find the right solutions for your ideal appearance, and invest in yourself.”
