How to find love with someone special
Know what you want
In order to meet someone new, you have to know what it is you’re looking for in the first place.
When you were 16, your list of traits for an ideal man might have looked something like this: older, tall, handsome, dark-haired, can play the guitar, has his own car.
Now you’re a bit older, a bit wiser, you know that a guy who can play guitar isn’t necessarily going to make a great boyfriend. Having that focus of what you truly want in a partner can really help your search, so try this exercise:
• Write down everything you’re looking for in a partner, and another list of every trait you can’t stand.
• Whittle each list down to just 10 ‘must haves’ and ‘can’t stands’. If you’re having trouble doing this, bear in mind these are just your absolute non-negotiables – no ‘nice to haves’!
When you’re looking for that special someone keep your list at the fore front of your mind. You’ll find your search much more focused, and you may even realize that someone special has been sat right under your nose all along!
