Basic Instinct

If it feels like work in the beginning, cut your losses and move on.  In other words,

Lesson # 18:  Trust Your Instincts

People rarely change and you must remember that it’s a package deal.  Either love who you’re with or be with someone else.  You’ll be happier in the end–I promise.

Date Like You Mean It

Hello, ladies (and gents).  I’ve noticed a trend among singles lately and it’s this:  people say that that they simply “don’t have the time to date”.  This brings me to the next rule:

Lesson # 17:  Date Like It’s Your Job

I say this because of the expression, “Your priorities shall reveal themselves.”  If getting married (or finding a lifetime companion) is a priority for you, act like it.  Schedule time for clubs, dates, and social outings into your agenda if you have to.  Also, let everyone you know in your social and professional circle that you are “single and looking to meet more people.”  Use the power of networking.  Work will still be there after you find The One.  Remember, no one on his/her deathbed wishes he/she spent more time at the office.

Be Happy

Before you build a successful relationship, you must be happy with yourself.  Although this site serves to be a guide for those seeking committed and meaningful relationships, it also encourages people to put things into perspective.  Yes, it would be ideal for you to find the love of your life and live happily ever after.  But keep in mind, also, that it is always better to be alone than with the wrong person.  Simply put, if the worst thing that ever happens to you is your ending up single and having only to take care of yourself, that’s a pretty good deal.

Lesson # 8:  Be Happy With and By Yourself

I say this because it is imperative for every one to be happy being by (and doing things by) herself/himself before she/he can be truly happy with another person.  Being open to true love is one thing.  Being desperate is another.  You are not desperate.  You are not seeking someone to complete you.  Rather, you are seeking someone who compliments you.

Now that we have that established, get out there and do some fishing!
