Lots of people go into a romantic relationship setting themselves up for emotional pain and despair.
They jump into a romantic relationship without knowing what they want… that they end up regretting later on.
Now, before you start dating…
…know what you want, or more precisely, know the type of person you want to be in a romantic relationship with.
What type of person do you want?
- the party type?
- the religious type?
- a highly educated person?
- an independent person?
- someone with a kid?
…the list goes on.
Decide what you want in a potential lover, then start screening the people you meet for suitability…
…don’t settle. [Read: ‘What It Means to ‘Date’: A Mistaken Belief People Have About Dating’]
If you haven’t decided what you want in a potential lover, then start now.
This is very important…
…because when it comes to dating and relationship, you don’t want to end up with the wrong person.
You need to have standards and you should NOT settle for what you’re lucky to get – a person who might not be the right person for you.
The next step after knowing the type of person you want is to…
…know the most likely places you will find them.
Figure out the places where the person you want to be in a romantic relationship with would be.
This is also important because different places attract different types of people.
What do I mean by this?
Now, if you’re looking to date someone who likes to party or who enjoys outdoor activities, then nightclubs, bars, and parties are your best bet.
If you want an athletic person, go to the gym.
If you’re looking to date someone who’s more intellectual, you should know that they will most likely hang out at the library and bookstores.
Want the religious type? Then you guessed it… you will find them in the church.
Different places attract different types of people.
I’m not saying you cannot meet your ideal person in other places that don’t conform to their personality.
For instance, if you want a religious person, it doesn’t mean you cannot find them at nightclubs.
…but your chances of meeting a religious person at a nightclub is slim to none.
So, if you want to meet a particular type of person, you have to go to places that are designed to help you meet that particular type of person.
Knowing the type of person you want to date will help you know where to hang out. It narrows your search and makes it easier to meet them!
Always know what you want when you jump into the dating scene.
Plus, don’t be afraid to withdraw and walk away should the person you meet doesn’t meet your requirements. [Read: ‘Don’t Fall in Love Too Fast’]
