The modern model of dating, romance, and courtship is growing increasingly complicated as we tear down old social customs and create new ones. If you happen to be single right now, the good news is that more people than ever before are single and single for longer. Of course, the bad news is that the single's scene can be perplexing and downright cruel at times. Hollywood movies, organized religion, and overbearing families reinforce an unrealistic picture of romance and can make people ill-prepared to comply with the kinds of attitudes and demands that modern socializing requires. A few vey common mistakes that people make are:
When was the last time you were excited about a date? Think. Was it a long time ago? Come on.... think. Did you get a little nervous and anxious? Was your heart was beating faster, making a faint throb in your chest. Did you get nervous because you wanted to make sure that everything would turn out perfectly? The rendezvous was important to you. You wanted it to be perfect. Prior to the meeting, you checked on things that you would need. You ransacked your closet. You looked for an outfit that seems to fit the event. A couple of hours before the big event, you took your time in front of the mirror. “Did I forget something? Is everything in order now?” you asked yourself. One last sly look in the mirror, a smile, and now.... Ahhh, now you’re ready.
The "Singles Scene" is not a curse. In fact, there is so much room for mobility that typically you have more friends and are free to further your personal development and success without having to factor a partner’s needs. Today, the modern single is empowered, knows what he or she is worth, engages in fruitful activities, and is free to have a vast social life. Gone are the days when one would choke on their food and fall silent when people ask "How come you are not married?" Nowadays you can proudly say, “Because I choose to be.” or “I’m just too busy.” and leave it at that. This page and the above statement are not meant to douse on the merits of being in a relationship and encourage ambivilent singlehood. In fact, there really should not be comparison between the two; each has their advantages and disadvantages. What should be realized is that being single and enjoying a robust social life is every bit as legitimate as being in a long term committed relationship.
Currently, if you are single and struggling in vain to meet somebody special or to just get a date, then there are some changes that need to be made and the burden of those changes lies squarely upon YOU. Simply put, the world is not going to change in order to meet your specific needs. You must be pro-active in boosting your self-confidence, developing your personality, and cultivating sexually appealing social skills. Great news! All of these things are well within your control. Investing a little bit of time in yourself and cultivating the habits of self-understanding, self-improvement, and self regulation will do wonders for your social life and will eventually make some lucky person very happy.
Happy Hunting ;)
