A new study has found that the chance of finding love on any given day is a mere 1 in 562 if you leave it up to fate. Now for some good news, you can dramatically increase those odds by following just a few simple steps:
Step #1: Get Online
Most younger adults have fully embraced the era of online dating, but it has a bad rep among some older adults who find it weird, off-putting, or artificial. But according to recent surveys, online dating is a great way to meet the love of your life: 40% of American adults are dating online and 20% of committed relationships began online. So if you’re looking to increase your odds of finding love, get yourself online.
Step #2: Be Authentic
Whether your dating online or in person, it’s important to be authentic if you want to attract the right partner and a happy, healthy relationship. Unfortunately, many of us are not doing this – according to one survey, a whopping 53% of people lie in their dating profiles. Presenting a false version of yourself is a time-waster, and even if it leads to a relationship, the facade is not sustainable, so be your authentic self, and the right partner will be drawn to you.
Step #3: Put Your Best Self Forward
You may meet your partner in your daily life, to increase your odds of this tend to your appearance before you go out, smile at strangers, chat people up, project positivity, be friendly and be open. And most importantly, practice self-care and do the inner work necessary to make you a great partner. Try making a list of all the things you want your partner to be, and make sure that you are those things yourself.
Step #4: Create Your Profile Wisely
Putting your best self forward doesn’t mean lying in your profile, or showing photoshopped pictures, or photos of yourself from years ago. It means choosing photos that show you at your current best; photos where you are genuinely happy, and perhaps doing something you love. Make sure to include at least one close headshot of yourself, and unless you’re looking for a hookup, ditch the selfies and ab photos. Finally, spend some time writing your profile, you want to convey who you are, your likes and your core values – doing so will dramatically increase your odds of attracting the right partner.
Step #5: Get Off the Couch
So many of us spend our evenings dating our TVs but you’ll never find your lover on your couch. Get hobbies and go to conferences, workshops or meetups that are offering things that interest you. This will ensure you are surrounded by like-minded people who share your hobbies, passions or values, which will vastly increase your odds of finding your match. Also, make sure to talk to as many people as possible at these events; even if the person you’re talking to isn’t the one for you, someone close to them just might be.
Bonus Tip: Put your phone away and be completely present and attentive while on dates.
