What’s your new year’s resolution?
The new year is upon us and we have to be able to take this as an opportunity to right all of the wrongs in our life especially our love life. Sure, true love has persisted in eluding us but that doesn’t mean that we have to give up on it. True love is still out there and it’s just waiting for us to grab it and never let go. It’s no secret that a lot of people make up New Year’s resolutions to symbolize their commitment to becoming holistically developed individuals. Why don’t you take this opportunity to make some New Year’s resolutions to help bring more love into your life?
And not just any kind of love; the right kind. It’s time for you to rid yourself of the bad dating habits of the past. You have to be willing to try out new approaches to love if you’re really interested in getting new results as well. You need to be able to step your game up. Remember that the better habits that you practice in your pursuit of love, the more likely you are going to attract the right kind of love into your life. It’s important to keep in mind that good habits breed good character and good character always attracts quality love.
And the best part about making New Year’s resolutions is that they aren’t necessarily going to have to be too complicated. In fact, if you manage to make your resolutions as simple and as concrete as possible, the easier they will be to follow.

So if you’re feeling lost as to what kind of New Year’s resolutions you should be following to help improve your love life, then you really need to read this list in its entirety. You don’t have to adopt all of the things that are on here. You don’t even have to limit yourself to the suggestions that are listed here. You can use this as a guide or a starting point to how you can potentially improve your love life in the future.
1. Have higher standards for the people you date.
Make it a point to not settle for people who are undeserving of you anymore. It’s okay to have high standards for the people you want to get into relationships with. This just means that you no longer want to waste your time with people who are just going to disappoint you.
2. Develop a strong friendship before getting into a romantic relationship.
A strong friendship is always a good foundation on which to build a romantic relationship. If you establish strong friendships with people first, it will be so much easier for you to navigate your way into a romantic relationship with someone.
3. Learn to separate your needs and wants in a relationship.
As it is in life, you need to learn how to separate your needs and your wants in the relationship. You have to learn that the things that you need are the things that you need to prioritize in a romance; and your wants should merely be added perks.
4. Know what goals you want to accomplish with regards to your relationship.
You have to be able to know what you want to get out of your relationships. If you don’t know what you want out of love, you are always going to end up feeling lost and unfulfilled in your romantic partnerships.
5. Be more flexible by dating people outside of your type.
You shouldn’t be limiting yourself to a certain type of person. Remember that you never know what you’re going to find if you just learn to step outside of your comfort zone. You have to open yourself up a little bit more to new experiences.
6. Trust your instincts more.
Trust your gut. It’s there for a reason. It’s there to protect you and look after you.
7. Pay better attention to the obvious red flags.
When you see the red flags early on in a relationship, then that would be better for you. You would avoid wasting a lot of time if you know early on that things aren’t going to work.
8. Stop chasing after people who are emotionally unavailable.
You don’t have to keep on wasting your time and efforts on people who just refuse to make themselves emotionally available to you. You want to open yourself up but these people have an unwillingness to just be open to you.
9. Treat each relationship with a new perspective.
Don’t let the bad experiences of bad relationships keep you from enjoying future ones. Take each relationship with a fresh perspective and just learn to start with a blank page.
