Valentine's Day creates a lot of expectations. Every year we are told to expect true love, a proposal, or steamy-hot romance. But sometimes we end up spending that red-and-pink monster of a holiday alone, eating ice cream in front of the TV and feeling low. It's time to shake off the post V-Day blues and start feeling good about love again!
What can you do to attract love? Here are some simple tips:
Review the past.
Have you recently had a breakup? Always been unlucky in love? Go over the last few relationships you've had and try to see what problems they all had in common. Was your partner thoughtless, or unattainable, or a cheat? Did you fight a lot? Were you not ready to commit? While you don't control the other person's behavior, trying to see your own patterns in relationships can help you avoid future pitfalls.
But don't wallow!
While it's important to get clarity on the things that have gone wrong in prior relationships, it's also important not to live in the past, or be bitter. If you're angry or hurt about what has happened before, you're not going to be open and receptive to fresh new love.
Change your habits.
Can't seem to meet a great guy or girl? Maybe it's where you're looking. If the bar scene has failed you or internet dating is exhausting, try out a new activity where you're likely to meet like-minded people. Join a hiking club, or a trivia team, or a sports organization. Even if you only meet platonic friends at first, if you expand your friendship base you'll eventually be introduced to their friends, and their friends' friends, and you'll widen your social circle until the right one happens along. Plus, it will make you feel happier and more fulfilled to pursue new hobbies, which is always attractive!
Take loving care of yourself.
Bad luck in love can have a depressing effect, and it can cause you to want to hide in your cave at home or act out in unhealthy ways, whether with food, spending, or other habits that don't serve you well. So try to treat yourself the way you'd want your lover to – as a precious person to be cherished and cared for.
