Dating can be a tough terrain to navigate. I mean, with the stupid games people are playing nowadays, one is never short of winning stupid prizes.

Reason being it’s hard to meet someone you truly have a genuine connection with and you have to risk being rejected or heartbroken over and over again.

The negative side of dating has actually caused people to give up on love entirely but that shouldn't be your story.

You can turn things around this year and have the best dating experience you’ve ever had.

I admit I may not be a dating guru however; these tips will bring you a step closer to meeting the love of your life.

  1. Don’t be needy about it

People can smell desperation from a mile away. It’s one thing to be excited about meeting new people but that's different from being too pushy.

Make sure you're not showing signs that you are desperate when you're out on a date.

I know it’s exciting when you can see a potential relationship in sight but keep it cool and let things flow naturally.

  1. Get in shape

Working out and eating healthy is a sure way to change your dating game. You will look good and feel good because your confidence will be through the roof.

When you're not putting in effort to get fit, you will be inviting unnecessary esteem issues.

If you want to boost your success in the dating world, start taking healthy living seriously this year.

  1. Do some introspection

Having a successful dating life isn't just about creating a strong bond with someone. In fact, a huge chunk of your success depends on the relationship you have with yourself.

For sure no one is perfect but it’s your responsibility to seek healing from within.

When you're secure with yourself, you will have a much better opportunity to build a healthy relationship with someone else.

  1. Do away with meaningless relationships

Maintaining relationships with ex’s can hinder you from having a good quality one with someone new.

Your energy will be diverted to the ‘what ifs’ because you're subconsciously hoping that the spark with your ex will be renewed.

Even when you're not planning on reconnecting with someone from your past, any new potential will instantly be turned off by the thought of you keeping your ex around.

Set yourself free from the ex-baggage by letting go.

  1. Try online dating

As the years go by, more and more things are going digital. It’s not unusual to see couples who met online getting married and having long lasting relationships.

Don’t shut out the idea of meeting someone online because you never know what could happen. The only thing you need to do is ensure you are vetting who you're planning to meet properly.

Put your safety first and take time to know them before having an actual date.

  1. Visit new places

Changing where you usually hang out can improve your dating prospects immediately. Believe it or not, certain areas have more potential than others.

Have the courage to try new things and visit new places so you can open yourself up to new experiences and friendships.

  1. Focus on genuine connections

This new year, leave the superficial things behind. You will notice that you have had a constant trend and if that's not worked out all this time, it’s a sign that you need to change your approach.

Give room for love to grow even when the person isn't your usual type. You will discover that you have so much in common with someone you never expected.

  1. Learn some dating tips

Don’t be embarrassed to admit that you need to extra help in your dating life. It’s okay to seek pointers that can show you some of the changes you need to make.

There are genuine mentors out there who can help you understand dating from different perspectives so take time to search for credible mentors and coaches to take your game to a new level.
