Relative Dating

We all know that the goal of dating is to land that perfect guy, or girl, whom you’re going to marry. (I promise we’ll be over that particular cliché by the end of this article, as well as all of the other gender-related dating advice out there that I am about to disabuse you of). But, the important thing to remember when dating is to focus on yourself, and learn how to make yourself more available to meet and be romantically attractive to the right guy or girl. These tips are pretty easy to implement and won’t require a lengthy time commitment.

Find a gym

A happy relationship is all about effort, so if you’re not willing to work on yourself, then you’ll never get what you want. According to relationship expert and bestselling author of The Rules, Mark L. Walburg, “Self-improvement is both a prerequisite for forming a lasting relationship and is often a conduit for transforming one’s current relationship.” The perfect gym is a place to maintain your strength and fitness.

When was the last time you felt a man crush on a guy in a gym? Guess what, you’re on to something. Walburg has found that when people are in a gym doing strength training or running, they’re less stressed and therefore feel more relaxed when they’re interacting with others. Walburg found that a person who “works out” is most likely to have a more positive view of the world, and are “more likely to enjoy their daily interactions and feel like they’re making the most of their opportunities.” And you know what they say, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Eat the right food

You’ve probably heard the joke before: “I’m a health freak. I even have a vitamins-and-minerals drinks’ label tattooed on my belly.” Have you ever found that people tend to underestimate you when you’re eating right? Ladies, the first date will most likely involve a night out, so “don’t wear that ratty t-shirt that you slept in that smells like fried chicken and pizza,” as he might forget to brush his teeth. Oh, and if you’re looking to “score” the perfect guy or girl, don’t wear the same thing that your friends are wearing. “Studies show that people prefer what they wear, on average, to make the person they’re interacting with believe that he or she is more attractive,” Walburg notes. He also found that it’s good for

First, figure out what you want

Like many other behaviors, dating can best be understood as a conversation: What do you want, in return, from your potential match? If you just want a one-night stand, you may not have much to ask for. If you’re looking to end up with someone, however, you’ll want to be sure you’re asking for more than a hook-up.

You’ve probably heard a lot of stories about why people do or do not get into relationships. We usually hear the reasons why people are reluctant to start dating again or because they are still angry with an ex. We tend to focus on the bad reasons people don’t get in a relationship, but sometimes, people are just afraid of it. Of course, we believe the reasons don’t really matter, because they’re your reasons and they are no one else’s business.

If you’re thinking about getting into a relationship, consider what you are looking for. In other words, what do you want out of the relationship? Are you looking for a one-night stand, a potential lifelong partner, or a partner for yourself in your retirement? Think about what you want to get out of your date before you even begin. Figure out what it is that you’re looking for in a relationship. Once you figure it out, you’ll be better prepared when it comes to the actual dating process.

Here are some questions that can help you figure out what you want out of a relationship:

What’s your ideal partner?

Do you want an older man? A younger man?

What type of long-term relationship do you want? A long-term relationship that may or may not evolve into marriage? A casual, perhaps, but for whatever reason, permanent relationship? If you want to get serious, you’ll need to take a step back and figure out what you want. Maybe you want an older man. Or a younger man. Maybe a coworker. Maybe you are open to pretty much anything. You may also want to consider what is stopping you from finding the perfect person who is perfect for you. Will you get to meet him online? What will you do in the event of a
