Relationships are a tricky thing whether you are trying to find one or trying to make one work. Nevertheless, we all want one so how do we find Love?
Today dating has gone beyond bars for finding a soulmate. However, if you are still into dating with drinks why not get right down to business. Speed Dating gives a whole new meaning to "first impressions are everything" and can be found in just about every city across America. Supposedly, you can tell within the first five minutes if you want to get to know someone better or show them the door. However, this high speed approach to traditional dating is not for everyone.
The Internet is the matchmaker of the new age. We have all seen the commercials promising long lasting love through matching profiles. Though it used to be frowned upon to tell your friends you met someone online, it is becoming increasingly common. So much so that there have been major motion pictures surrounding the concept (i.e. Must Love Dogs and You've Got Mail). Be very careful though, as mother always said, "You can't believe everything you read."
When looking for love sometimes it doesn't hurt to stay close to home. Your friends and family often know you better than you know yourself, or so they so often claim. Why not give them the opportunity to show you just what you might need? The dreaded blind date is always an option.
Regardless where you are looking or how, everyone deserves to find love. Try stepping outside your comfort zone. Why not give each one of these methods a shot and you just might find Mr. or Mrs. Right during one of those five minutes, IM or emails or on that blind date.
