How to stay motivated when dating...

Although dating can often be fun, it's understandable that a lot of singles have trouble when it comes to staying motivated. It's not the easiest thing in the world to put yourself out there over and over again, only to discover a couple of weeks later that your date 'lost' your number. It's important, however, to not let bad experiences cloud your opinion of dating and to try and stay motivated.

It only takes one

It's a good idea to keep in mind that you're not seeking the gold standard when it comes to dating. The only goal you have is one great date. It's no good letting a few bad dates get you down or convince you that you're likely to remain single forever. Remember that dating, in general, isn't supposed to go well all the time. Only one date is. Although it may seem like an impossibility, if you keep your mind open and maintain a positive attitude, you're bound to find your dating diamond amongst the rough eventually.


Once you've found yourself in a happy and loving relationship, you will look back at some of your dating disasters and see the funny side. In fact, you may come to think of them as adventures. The trials and tribulations of your dating past will turn out to be hilarious stories that you can share with your friends. So, if you're having trouble finding the required motivation to get on out there and get dating, think about the story. If the date goes well, then you could be on the road towards a healthy relationship. If it goes badly, at least you'll have a story to tell a few years down the line. Do it for the future you.

You deserve it

You deserve to find the perfect partner. So date as much as you can, use a dating app, head out to bars and enjoy the nightlife. Even if some of your dating experiences are less than great, they are still worth it because once you find the one, you'll feel more whole. All good things require work, so if you're willing to put in the effort, you'll be rewarded with the love you deserve.
