Nix The Dating Checklist

When it comes to dating or searching for a significant other, our long list of [unrealistic] expectations can sometimes take center stage. We all want the good-looking, intelligent, mature and financially secure partner but perhaps it’s time to face the music. Does your dating checklist resemble mile long demands that keep you from finding a mate?

Let’s be honest, breaking up is never an easy thing to do but sometimes it must be done. Kick the dating checklist to the curb and stop searching for love in all the wrong places.

What about the ‘nice guy’ who doesn’t quite meet your expectations but is always there for you when you need a helping hand? Why don’t you give him a chance?

In today’s day and age, we have come to expect instant gratification, especially within the millennial generation. We want it our way and we want it now!

This sounds good in theory but the reality of finding “the one” that is passionate, fulfilling and magical is a journey not a marathon. It’s a beautiful process that should happen organically because true love is patient.

Step out on faith and let fate have its way. Know the difference between being flexible in your hopes but prioritize your needs in a partner. Most importantly enjoy the ride and happy dating!
