Isn’t happiness the ultimate goal in life?
We all try to spend our days doing what truly matters to us. We all do our best to live life to the fullest with each passing minute.
But no matter how fulfilled we are, there are moments when the voice within whispers, “Wouldn’t it be better to have someone special to do these things with?”
Indeed, true love is what we all desire.
There are those who’ve finally found The One who will love them for the rest of their lives.
There are those who are still searching for Mr. Right.
Finding True Love Isn’t Easy But It’s Not Impossible
True love is undoubtedly the most elusive form of love. But that doesn’t mean you won’t ever experience it in your life.
Here are 12 tips for women who want to find true love.
1. Be true love.
So many of us are so focused on what we want in a man that we forget to work on ourselves first. Not that there’s something wrong with you but I mean that being the right person first will help you more easily attract your true love.
Work on developing yourself as a person. Hone your skills. Be a part of something bigger than yourself. When you know who you are, what you’re capable of, and what you believe in, you’ll attract someone who does too.
2. Be honest about what “true love” means to you.
Is it about loyalty and respect? What are your expectations and boundaries? Are you willing to compromise? Why do you want to find true love in the first place?
Asking yourself these questions will help you determine if you’re ready to find true love.
3. Find the source of your happiness.
It pays to be a positive person especially when it comes to entering relationships. So ask yourself: What is it that sets your soul on fire? Once you know the answer, go for it.
You’ll realize that true love will soon come when you’re a generally optimistic and upbeat person – with or without a partner.
4. Find your tribe.
Your tribe is a set of people who have the same interests and goals in life as you. It’s a community where you feel you belong, where your gifts are recognized and appreciated, and where you can shine your brightest.
When you surround yourself with likeminded people, chances are you’ll be the best version of yourself. When you are, it’s only a matter of time before true love knocks at your door.
5. Go out.
Seriously. Mr. Right isn’t living in the same apartment building as you. He’s outside, interacting with the world. So don’t turn down your girl squad’s invitation for a girl’s night out. Get out of town on weekends when you can afford it. Go visit that beach you’ve been dying to see.
Meet new men and keep the conversation going with the guy you like. Stay in touch if you think he’s worth it.
6. Let people in.
Don’t roll your eyes on me.
Before you protest, listen up. When I say let people in, I mean giving them the chance to prove they’re worth your time. If your BFFs set you up on a blind date, go for it. If a guy in your office asks you out, then give him a chance.
Letting people in is a crucial step in finding true love. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll completely let your guard down. It simply means giving him and you a chance.
7. Know what you’re looking for in a lifetime partner.
If you don’t know what you want, chances are you’ll just accept what’s being handed to you. This is a huge mistake, darling.
If it takes getting a journal and writing down the things you’re looking for in a partner, then do it. Write down questions to ask a guy when you’re finally ready to meet him face to face. Doing this will help you determine whether he has the same goals and values as you.
Having a pretty clear idea of this will save you so much time and shield you from unnecessary heartache.
8. Accept the fact that your future partner won’t be perfect.
You aren’t perfect so why expect him to be?
The earlier you come to terms with the fact that he won’t be Superman, the better. It will help you be at peace with your own flaws and quirks so when you discover his, you won’t be caught off guard.
9. Remember that dating is hit-and-miss.
There will be first dates that feel awful and terrible. There will be guys who look nice but are professional assholes. You’ll experience them all and, when you do, don’t fret. There’s no use being upset over things that aren’t within your control.
10. Practice forgiveness.
Being filled with love is one way to attract true love. You can help yourself to be filled with love through forgiveness.
When you forgive, you let go of all the negativity – bitterness, anger, resentment, and indifference. When you release these negative emotions, love enters the heart and remains.
When this happens, you see the world with a more positive perspective. Doing so will help you more easily recognize true love when it arrives.
11. Trust the process.
I’d hate to disappoint you but the truth is, to find true love, you’ll first have to deal with some disappointment, betrayal, and pain.
If you’re not ready for this, you’ll probably never experience it because true love is not for the faint of heart.
Remember, the good things in life only come about with hard work and sacrifice.
12. Don’t give up.
When you meet someone special and start to invest in them and the relationship, you’ll wish for this man to be your soulmate. Sometimes, you’ll realize that you and him are just not right for each other.
But just because you encounter some difficulties along the way doesn’t mean you should give up. Finding true love involves getting knocked down a couple of times but always getting back up again. You can do it. Trust in yourself, darling!
Patience Is Key To Finding True Love
Nobody knows when true love will knock on your door. So keep these tips in mind and as you live each day with love and patience.
Trust me, it will soon pay off.
