With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there are still lots of opportunities to find your love connection! Here are some tips to help you make the most of your singlehood:

Just say “Yes!”  While the last thing you feel like doing is going to another single’s mixer or Valentine’s day soiree alone, keep an open mind! Unless you have a hot date lined up or are bedridden with the flu, make it a rule to accept every invite you receive.  Keeping your social calendar packed with a diverse group of events is always a good idea. Remember that every new connection you make (whether romantic or not) can ultimately help you in your quest for love.  At best, the power of “yes” could lead to a fortuitous introduction to your future mate.  At worst, you will have broadened your network and made new friends (who can introduce you to their single friends)!

Refresh your look.  Been thinking about getting that new haircut or upgrading your closet? There is no better time than now  to splurge on those sexy booties you have been eying or try out those fringe bangs you’ve always wanted to rock.  A new look can give you the burst of confidence that you need when you’re meeting new people at your next cocktail event.  If you have an online dating profile, review it to see if it needs a refresher.  Do you have several pictures uploaded and are they up-to-date? Does your profile reflect your personality and the fabulous qualities that make you unique? If the answer is no, it’s time to make some updates to your online persona.

Try something new.  It’s easy to fall into the trap of going to the same local joints with too many familiar faces.  It’s time to venture outside of your hood and expand your horizons by taking up a new hobby or joining a new club.   Why not join a book club or take up a new sport/activity? Personal plug: rock climbing is a fun way to stay fit and fabulous! Mixing up your routine and trying new activities will increase your chances of meeting new people. Try social event discovery apps like Sosh or sign up for UpandOut to find out about unique events in your city.   

Stay positive. Let’s face it – when you are single during Valentine’s Day, the feeling of not having a significant other can be all too pronounced. You may be dreading the idea of spending another S.A.D. (Single Awareness Day) by yourself.  Don’t put too much pressure on yourself to meet ‘the one’ every time you go out – instead, focus on having light-hearted conversations, enjoying the moment, and having fun!  A positive, upbeat attitude will bring out the best in you and ease the stress when you are flirting with the cute guy next to the bar.

Be proactive.  The first step to finding a date is putting yourself out there and taking action.  If you don’t have an online profile on a dating site, sign up for one.  Many dating sites offer special promotions during Valentine’s Day so now is a good time join one and get access to a pool of people who are also looking to meet someone new. You can also take charge of your dating life by reaching out to friends and asking them to set you up.  People genuinely enjoy helping their friends out so don’t feel afraid to ask.  Regardless of how the dates turn out, remember to be appreciative of your friends who set you up.  By being proactive, you will be one step closer to finding love.
