Dating | New Year New Man?

New year new partner?

Well that's the dream isn't it but reality is we're here again with another update to y dating saga.

Well as the year draws to a close and we all start to reflect back on 2018 there's one part of my year I look back and think could I have done better? It's safe to say I've taken a more proactive approach to dating this year. I've pushed myself, put myself out there and actually dating more than I have ever dated in my life! Has it been successful? In part yes. In part no. I'm going into 2019 single but I'm okay with that. I'm in a much better place than I was this time last year. I've grown in confidence and started to see more of what I look for in a man. I now know the important things on my checklist.

2018 started off a little turbulent on the old dating front - that story is still yet to come but it's safe to say the beginning of this year I had the WORST taste in men but it's ended a little differently. I've learnt a lot and continue to grow as an individual and I finally feel like I am back to the level of confidence I had back when I was 19 without a care in the world and that's all down to actually putting myself out there - one of the things I never used to do!

When internet dating it's so important to have these checklists to hand to start to see which hobbies, interests, life goals or even common places that you have in common. Remember websites that specifically match you with dates in your area such as Berkshire dating can help to already match some of those items on your checklist before you even begin. I've dated from numerous different regions but it's safe to say I find it so much easier when you already share common ground and live in close proximity to each other, especially with busy working schedules now.

There is a lot of taboo around meeting someone online and back when I first started dating it was pretty much frowned upon, you'd tend to keep it more secretive and both not want to admit that's how you'd met but I can't understand why. We've all become more digitally minded, we work more, party less so how else are we supposed to meet people? I'd often have amazing conversations with people on the commute and then meet up for a drink after work.

Dating is hard and we put so much pressure on ourselves as to what society expects to happen but in reality dating is definitely moving more online so for me it's a massive benefit 

It's safe to say I'll be continuing on my road of dating and will continue to hunt down the perfect man for me (quite literally!) What are your goals for 2019? Did you meet all your goals for 2018?

  1. You may feel insecure with a man and rather than relying on one person, you try to move on. It can be cause of traumatic events or personal beliefs. You can talk about your depression intervention to move on to a happy and stable life.
