People are not always successful with the opposite sex with some hitting long droughts between dates or second dates. Far too many people believe their approach works and simply has hit a rough patch. People can find others to go on dates with on a weekly basis just by taking a proactive approach. Dating is a numbers game for the most part so putting yourself in social situations to meet someone increases your likelihood of success.
Being too aggressive can have the opposite effect so take friends to have a good time. Meeting someone more organically than you forcing the issue is always going to make a better impression. The following are tactics to up your game when you have been striking out with those of the opposite or same-sex lately.
Revamp Your Look
Changing your look could be exactly what you need to attract the type of person you would love to date. This comes in many forms so start with your clothes and purchase new budget-friendly outfits online. The right jewelry like men’s gold rings by Gold Urban can really make a new outfit pop. This is not a ploy to change your style but rather upgrade it to accentuate your positive physical features. Going to the gym can be a good way to get in shape and possibly catch the eye of someone. Living a healthy lifestyle is also what many people look for in a potential significant other.
There Is No Shame In The Dating App Game
Whether you are in a drought or getting back into the dating game after a divorce there should be no shame in using dating apps. The days of being ashamed to be active on online dating sites are gone as they are much more mainstream. There are apps for nearly every interest as well which can save you an immense amount of time in your dating life. Particular things being a deal-breaker like that of religion or even diet can be sifted through on these sites. Many of these sites have parameters that can be searched so set them as you would like. Keep in mind to meet these people in public first as you are still meeting a stranger off of the internet. Be upfront with what you want out of the dating app as you will be found out if you have been lying.
Go Out On A Bar Crawl With Friends
Bar crawls can be a great time with friends and a way to let loose on a weekend. Obviously, these shouldn’t be occurring every weekend but doing one on a holiday can be perfect for a large group. Unlike other events at bars, these often start during the day and dissipate at night due to the copious amounts of alcohol consumed. Often times there are games to break the ice between attendees of the event which can introduce you to others. This is not time to be shy as you likely will not see a majority of the people outside of your group again unless you hit it off with someone!
Do Not Let Rejections Shake Your Confidence
The dating world is full of rejections that can shake your confidence to the core. This could be a person you have seen multiple times breaking it off due to their perception of a lack of chemistry. Being blindsided like this might take a few days to regroup but do not think too far into it. You should be happy that you didn’t spend any more time on that relationship when it is ultimately not going to work out. Dating can be a numbers game so every denial is just one step closer to going on a date or getting a phone number/Snapchat name. Learn from rejections as well so you can hone your conversation skills or figure out a first date that has a high success rate for you personally.
If You Have A Cute Dog, Take Them Out
A dog can be the perfect way to spark conversation with someone of the opposite sex. An adorable dog like that of a husky is sure to get the attention that can then transfer to you. Take your dog out on a weekend as they deserve it and it can make you more approachable. There are plenty of bars in certain cities that not only allow dogs but also have snacks for your furry friend. For those that might have trouble with confidence or talking to the opposite sex, this is the perfect segue. Dog parks are full of single people so this is an option as well so research parks near you.
A few tweaks are usually all that is necessary to get back on the top of your dating game. Take time to look at what has worked and what currently is not working for you. Implementing a dating strategy at times can be quite advantageous.
