When it comes to dating, the most difficult part is meeting new people, which ironically is the start of the dating process.
However, some people have difficulty expanding their network because they have preconceived notions about the dating scene, and little do they know these negative thoughts hurt them more.
Learn about these personal myths that may hold you back from meeting someone new.
All the good ones are taken
Good people are not rare species. You may think that your local area may be running out of eligible singles, but the good thing is that more people become eligible every year, they are younger though, but would you mind?. You could also look out for people you like to meet in an adjacent town, or even in another state.
There are no decent ways or places to meet people anymore
Where you meet new people is not an issue of location. What matters is that you do something to bring more potential partners into your life. Try going out more often; join a group that you share common interests with, anything that will expand your network.
I do not want to look desperate
Looking for love is not an act of desperation. It is just a matter of making people know you have a relationship goal, and you intend on making it a reality. Besides, we all wanted to love and be loved.
I never meet anyone within my checklist
There is nothing wrong if you have never met anyone you find interesting, or sexy, or intelligent, and humorous. Having a realistic relationship expectation is not a bad thing. In fact, in some circumstances they are important.
For example, you may not need a heavy drinker in your life if you are a recovering alcoholic. However, creating a checklist of perfect traits controls the outcome of your search, and does not-in any way-able to find you love.
