New Year's

Are you ready to improve your dating game for 2015?

The dating scene is tough, and it’s easy to find fault with the different people you meet along the way. Maybe he’s too possessive or she has a weird laugh. But have you ever thought of what kind of boyfriend or girlfriend you are? As we approach a whole new year of dating, why not make a New Year’s resolution to be an even more awesome version of yourself? By being a truly amazing boyfriend/girlfriend, you can offer your future partner even more to cherish. Start brainstorming one or two areas where you think you most need to improve in a relationship and then determine what steps you can take to make it happen. Here are five ways to improve your dating game to help get your brainstorming started:

Improve Your Self Confidence

Dating can do a number on a person’s self-confidence, and it’s not like the stuff grows on trees anyway. One harsh rejection or a few weeks with zero responses to your messages, and you might be wondering if it’s better to board up your windows and embrace the hermit life.

One of the most powerful things you can do to strengthen your confidence (and change your life) is to believe that you and ONLY YOU are in control of your confidence. No one can hurt your confidence or self-esteem unless you allow them to. People can be rude, cruel, or apathetic toward you, and it may have nothing to do with you at all (or you may just be a convenient target). Don’t let them score self-esteem points off you.

Let Go of Past Relationships and Scars

One heartbreak can leave open and oozing wounds on your heart that affects your future relationships. You may be weary of new relationships, always waiting to be hurt, rejected, or betrayed. In the new year, it’s time to let go of all those old hurts and to stop letting them hold back your potential for new relationships. Dating is all about making yourself vulnerable, which may lead to new scrapes and stings, but love requires risk and an open heart. Bury that old relationship. It’s time to look forward, not backwards.

Be More Open to New People and Experiences

Have you been searching for the same type of dream girl or dream guy for years with no luck? Do you always go to the same bars or outlets to try and find someone new? In 2015, break out of your rut and you might just be surprised about who you find. Consider expanding your search for the perfect girlfriend or boyfriend. Maybe the love of your life is a little older or younger than you would have thought. Maybe they’re a different race or religion from you. Start 2015 with an open mind and see who comes into your life.

You may also want to consider putting yourself into different situations. Take an adult learning class on a topic you’ve always wanted to try, volunteer, or sign up for a niche online dating website like

Be More Trusting

Trust can be hard to give, especially if you’ve been betrayed before. But just because you’ve been hurt by one person doesn’t mean that every man or woman on the planet is waiting to stab you in the back. Old wounds could get in the way of new relationships, especially if you are jealous, paranoid, or closed off. It’s time to be more trusting in 2015. Without trust,  you’ll never feel safe and secure in your new relationship. Give your new partner the benefit of the doubt and believe in them so that they can believe in you.

Focus On Giving

We all have a dream of the man or woman we want to be our partner in life. We want someone who will make us laugh, take care of us when we’re sick, support our dreams, clean the dirty dishes, rock our world in the bedroom, and more. Have you ever thought of what you can offer the other person? A relationship is always a two way street. How can you can except to be loved, supported, and cherished without offering the same in return? Instead of always thinking about what you want your partner to give you, consider what you can give them. What about leaving little love notes in their lunch box, cleaning the house without being asked, giving out a massage after a long night of work, etc… Give, give, give, and you might be amazed at what you get in return.

We at GlutenfreeSingles wish everyone a happy, safe, healthy, and love-filled New Year’s!
