Don't we all yearn for the day our prince (or princess) will come? Love might not be as hard as we think when broken down into these 10 simple steps... SIKE!
1. Practice Self-Love
The first step in finding your true love is to learn how to love yourself. While you want someone to rely on, you have to trust you can rely on yourself. You're a dime, babygirl!
2. Practice Self-Care
Self-care includes everything that seems relaxing to YOU! Treat yourself to the spa, nail salon, or even the beach. Go to your happy place.
3. Figure Out Your Dreams
This might be the most challenging step of all. Figuring out your dreams and your true passion is hard and takes time. However, this will be your foundation in maintaining your confidence when functioning in the dating world.
4. Chase After Your Dreams
Live life for you (and maybe Nicki Manaj).
5. Look for Love in all the RIGHT Places
If you think you're going to find your soulmate through Tinder or at the college club down the street, think again.
6. Set Out into the Dating World (and Don't Stop)
Envision your ideal partner and don't settle for less. Have fun in the process but remember to be confident in and true to yourself. Instead of thinking, "am I good enough for them?"... think: "are they good enough for me?"
7. Keep Your Courage
Love might not come as easy to us all. Keep your courage up. Most the time when we stop looking, is when we finally find the one we've been looking for. Ride that dating wave!
8. See the Red Flags
So, you think you've finally found the one? Hmmm, don't move too fast little one. As hard as it may be, take off those deep-in-love shades and see if there's red flags to be noticed.
9. Ask Your Friends
Let's face it: best friends know us the best. If you get the approval from the besties, you're bound to be going in the right direction. If you don't, then maybe you should keep your eyes open... no matter how hot your new date might be.
10. Treat Your Soulmate Like a Flower
Love is a verb, not a noun. You have to continually work at it. I like to think of love as a growing flower. You will need to water it, love on it, and take it to nearby sunlight. When you think you've found the one, hold on to it and never let it go.
