Yes, it’s Valentine’s Day and if you’re reading this then you’re probably in that boat of people who are just trying to find that special someone. Don’t worry because you got another 364 days until the next year. But an important question is the difference between being open-minded to people who pique your interests and desperate. Let’s face facts, finding that perfect someone is nearly impossible in the first few tries so you’ll probably have to compromise in some aspect. However, don’t settle for someone that you would normally not find attractive if they didn’t show interest in you.
Yes, there are plenty of fish in the sea but it’s tiring to always here that and with the solution to “love” being a click away it’s difficult to truly get a grasp of how you feel about someone. You’re bombarded with friends telling you that you should do this and that, not to text immediately, what that gentle touch on the shoulder meant. What you need to do is just sit back and take into account of what you’re being told but that doesn’t mean you should compromise your decisions.
So, how can you not be desperate? Here are a few tips:
1) In Pursuit of Happiness: Happier people tend to find better relationships because things always happen when they’re meant to happen, not when you want them to happen.
2) Doing your own thing: If you’re moving around your day just for this one person then you’re not truly living. You’re working too hard and you just need to relax. Find a hobby or anything to keep you busy.
3) Always improve yourself: If you look in the mirror and find yourself unhappy about something then why not try to change what you’re unhappy about? This doesn’t mean go get plastic surgery but instead why not go for a run instead of watch tv? Grab a water instead of a soda. Your lifestyle habits can influence your mood and there in turn your outlook on life.
