Singles, fear not. Professional matchmakers know better than anyone the worries singles face in the big bad dating world. Today, New Jersey dating and relationship experts will ease your anxiety with their knowledge and advice.
Your friends who are already dating someone might be the first ones to tell you they wish they were single again and that they envy your single lifestyle. But you want what they have, right? Of course you do or you wouldn’t be reading this blog. They imagine your single life to be nothing but freedom, but you on the other hand, see nothing but loneliness as you think about your nights at home eating pizza and watching TV marathons by yourself (gaining weight).
Yes, your single lifestyle creates a whole new array of different opportunities and exciting prospects, but it can also bring lonely nights and worries. Today, our professional matchmakers here at New Jersey Singles Dating Service will review the worries many single people have, and we’ll share some of our thoughts to ease your worries.
1. Everyone I Know Is Settling Down
Not that again, please! Not another wedding invitation! If your kitchen table has turned into heaps and mounds of wedding invitations, don’t stare at it with anger. Be happy for your friends and know that it will be your time soon. Getting married is not a race. It takes time, and it takes people years to get to that point, so enjoy your single status for now. Do all the things you want to do when you want to and stop comparing your life to those of your friends.
2. I Feel Very Lonely
Everyone gets lonely from time to time, even your friends who are in relationships. Being in a relationship isn’t a cure for loneliness, so our matchmakers want you to remember that. Don’t cut yourself off from friends and family members as the connection you feel with them will help you fill the void you’re feeling in your love life. You’ll be ready for love once you’re happy and content with yourself and your life.
3. What If I’m Single for the Rest of My Life?
Before you drive yourself crazy, try to remember that if you want a relationship, you will eventually find it. However, here at New Jersey Singles, we know you need to make sure you are being proactive about your search. Even if you don’t meet the right man or woman on the first try, you will get to experience a relationship with someone and improve your dating skills for the future. Practice makes perfect.
4. I Am at an Age I Need to Have Children
If you are a woman, don’t fall into the trap of believing you need to rush into a relationship because your biological clock is ticking. Remember that there are options, no matter what age you are. There isn’t a right age to have a child, so if you have not found the right person yet, do not enter into the wrong relationship because you think you need to have a child right now or by a certain deadline. Our professional matchmakers want you to look for compatibility first as it will be very important for the future of your relationship.
5. Should I Have Broken up with Them?
Oh, here we go again… The big regret about breaking up with your ex. The thing you need to remember is that the two of you broke up for a reason. It’s normal to feel regrets when you’re feeling lonely, but when you’re looking back at it, you will realize that you were only looking at your relationship with rose-tinted glasses. Start thinking about all the bad times instead of only focusing on the good.
6. Am I Being Too Picky?
If you’re only searching for Mr. or Mrs. Perfect, or a copy of your ex, then you are being picky. There isn’t a point in having such high standards if you can’t find anyone to date. It is good to know what you want in a relationship, but don’t be too closed off or judgmental. You need to start dating outside of your comfort zone and learning more about yourself and what will truly make you happy in the end.
7. Where Can I Meet Someone?
If booze-filled nights are no longer the thing for you and you’re worried about where you will meet someone compatible to date, don’t lose hope. How about enrolling in a new class, taking up a new hobby, checking out different coffee shops in your area, or even trying our professional matchmaking services here at New Jersey Singles? Be adventurous and you will find love in 2015.
8. Should I Continue to Date Them If There Is No Connection?
There needs to be a spark for a relationship to be successful; however, our professional matchmakers know that spark might not happen right away. People are often nervous during first dates and sometimes that means acting a little goofy, shy, or even too talkative (out of fear of those dreaded awkward silences). Remember that they need a chance to loosen up just like you do. If you go on a couple of dates with someone and don’t feel a spark just yet, don’t be so quick to write them off right away. But if you’ve been dating someone for many months and still don’t see a spark, then it’s time to call it a day and move onto someone else you do feel a connection with.
9. What If I’m the Last Single Standing?
Everyone worries about being the only single left out of the group, so you’re not alone. Even if you’re the last single one left in your group of friends, you’re not the last one on the planet. You need to get out there and enjoy life. At least you’ll have plenty of interesting stories to share once you do find someone for a relationship.
10. If They Are Playing Games, Should I Play Them Too?
If you’re playing games to match someone else’s games, for example, taking three days to respond to a text, stop it! Life is too short to be playing games. You need to move on or be honest about how you feel. If you are not sure how they feel, you need to go ahead and ask them.
11. How Will I Know When I Meet the One?
Always trust your gut instinct. You will now right away when you meet the one as you will feel comfortable around them. You will not feel the pressure of having to impress them every second you’re together. If you are questioning whether or not you have met the one, you have not met them yet.
12. Am I Dating The Wrong Type of Partner?
Listen to your friends and family members as they will be the ones to tell you the truth. Your friends will be the first ones to see what you don’t see. Be honest with yourself and how this person makes you feel. Does this partner bring out the best side of you? This is where you need to do some honest reflecting.
Singles, fear not. You’re not the only one who thinks all these thoughts. There are many people who worry about the same thing. But don’t worry, if you are looking to leave your single days behind, you can.
