Good for you! You are ready to get back out there and meet ‘the one.’ Your friends and colleagues have brought you up to speed and you now know online dating is the way to go.  But before you dive in, You MUST Do These 4 Things To Be Successful At Online Dating.

Although there is a vast increase in people using online dating services, statistics show that there are now more singles than ever, with numbers hitting around 50% in North America and the United Kingdom.

So is online dating an effective way to meet ‘the one?’

Yes! It can be if you are prepared. Don’t lose faith. By consciously preparing yourself to meet the love of your life, you will get the results you desire.

1. Be clear before you begin

Now don’t go rolling your eyes when I say it’s time to make your list. Listen to me -having a list of qualities and your ‘desired feelings’ in a relationship is NOT being too picky. Let me tell you what happens when you don’t have clarity around what you need and how you desire to feel in a relationship. You fail! You enter yet another relationship unconsciously hoping it will work out. But in the long run it doesn’t because your needs are not being met.

Don’t waste your time going out on a lot of bad dates to learn what you like and what you don’t. Take some time in advance. Grab a piece of paper and a pen and think about your ideal mate and how you will feel when you are with them.

2. Meet as soon as possible

Everything might look great on paper. You can find out many details that will help you assess suitability in an online discussion. However, if there is no chemistry, this relationship is just not going to happen! So save your time and cut to the chase. If you think there might be a match, meet in person sooner, rather than later.  That is one key to being successful to online dating!

3. Honour your intuition

Have you ever ignored that little knowing in your gut because you were afraid of being alone forever? Have you told yourself that you are being too judgmental or picky and really be more open? Your intuition will never lead you astray. You can ignore it and temporarily satisfy your need of not being alone, but if your intuition is showing you red flags, chances are this is not your forever partner.

4. Trust in abundance

Where are all the good ones? Are all the decent ones already married? Sometimes dating can be very disheartening, but you can be successful at online dating. You might feel like you will never find your mate and that you are destined to be alone forever. Trust me, I get it! But all that boo hoo negativity is only attracting less than fabulous stuff into your life. I want you to SHIFT–now, to a place of abundance! There are a lot of singles out there. They are not all the same. There is a special someone for you and when the time is right and you are ready, you will meet them. In the meantime, give yourself everything you desire from a future partner.


When your soul is ready your mate will appear.
