You know those cards you get at Christmas? You know the ones I'm talking about. The ones where the sender shares everything great that's happened over the year so that you know how great their life is. Do you ever read your Facebook updates and think that this is starting to seem like the same thing only on a day-by-day basis rather than the condensed year version?
If you're in your 50's (and single) maybe you're seeing updates about the Johnson's retiring and moving to a beach community, photos of the Smith's beautiful grandchildren, and pictures from that great RV trip across the country the Jones's took. And here you are. You are a responsible person with a career, but each evening you come home to the pets, prepare a meal for one, eat while watching TV, then maybe play on the computer.
Granted, there is no one complaining, but there is no one to talk to, either. It doesn't have to be that way. It's time to break out of your dating slump.
Being responsible by taking care of your job, home and pets are important, but they are not all that you are about. Now it is your turn. Now is the time to do what YOU want to do. Find that part of you that got lost years ago. Want to take that fabulous vacation? Do it! Want to travel across this great country of ours. Do it!
You don't need a significant other to do these things, but it is nice to share these adventures with someone special? Most people meet potential dates and mates through their normal every-day lives, whether that person is a co-worker, a new acquaintance, or an introduction from a family or friends. What do you do, though if your every-day life isn't helping your love life? We're glad you asked.
Find new places to go, join new groups, get involved in new activities, and meet new people. One of the best ways to meet new people is through an introduction. Many people have turned to online dating to facilitate introductions. On-Line dating is fine, but people are not always who they say they are on the Internet. Also, studies have shown that it takes more hours to seek out someone special on-line than a full-time job! Who has time for that?
Hoping for change is a nice thought, but actually taking action is the key. If you'd like some help, we're ready to be of service. The right person is out there. You just need to meet them or be introduced to them. One option you may no have considered is to work with a professional matchmaker.
Over the last 13 years Leisha and I have introduced thousands of Atlanta singles. One of our advantages over online dating sites is that we personally meet each new member and run background checks. While we like to stress that our service is safe, easy and fun, safety is also a key component. 2015 only has a few months left but there is still time and you're in control. Now make it happen. Break out of your dating slump.
