So, you like the idea of a long-term relationship, but it just never seems to work out. You might be finding it hard to meet someone you’d like to go on a date with, or perhaps you go on dates, but it never seems to develop into a relationship. This is not uncommon, so don’t let it get you down. You might unconsciously be blocking your own path to love and happiness and there are a few tricks to clearing that path.

Love won’t necessarily just happen

Occasionally, love does just occur with a glance across a crowded room, but you wouldn’t be this laid back in waiting to achieve other areas of success in your life, so don’t leave love to chance either. This is just one way it might happen. Love is an area in which we never have full control, that that doesn’t mean we should leave it all up to chance. Make your opportunities as you would with work and leisure activities.

Achieve life balance

Often love doesn’t happen because life gets in the way. If your time is dominated by work, family or other problems and challenges, they can take up all your time. Rebalance, allowing a little time to focus on love and finding the right partner. Sometimes other areas of life must take priority, but sometimes you must recognise that you’re using this as a shield to avoid making yourself vulnerable and putting yourself out there. Be careful not to raise your guard too high, making it difficult to let someone else in.

Patience is a virtue

Being single and seeking a perfect partner can become really frustrating. Finding someone who you know is right might feel like a huge challenge. You might make a concerted effort to join different groups and get involved in a wide variety of activities in order to find someone. Meanwhile someone else might just bump into their perfect match in a supermarket queue on a rainy Tuesday. Remember that how long it takes will make no difference once you find it. The love will be the same wonderful, powerful force whether it takes a day, a year or a decade to find.

Part II next month.
