With the New Year just a few days away, ’tis the season for lofty goals and resolutions.
But before you set yourself up with unrealistic expectations for overhauling your love life or finding “the one,” try perfecting the basics of meeting people.
Laurie Davis, an online dating coach fluent in the language of digital flirting, recommends taking proactive steps to meeting someone new rather than sitting back and waiting for the right person to fall in your lap. And that starts with putting down the remote and putting yourself “out there.”
Davis suggests updating your online dating profile and keeping it fresh and active to stay at the top of the search results. And if you’re constantly on the go, take your profile with you by using mobile dating apps such as Skout, and attend as many singles events as your schedule and wallet will allow.
But our favorite suggestion of hers is to leverage your social network to meet new people:
Social Networking. Make sure that you are connected on FaceBook, LinkedIn, Twitter and the like. You can use these sites to contact new matches and gain the interest of your friends’ single pals. Thread even helps the process along!
This year resolve to recruit your friends to join Thread.com and ask them to introduce you to their single Facebook friends.
