Between trying to be a real adult and figuring out what you want to do with your life, how does anyone have time to find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with?1. “Assume that you can get anyone to fall for you if you want them to.”
“It might not be true, but you should go into every date with that assumption, instead of worrying about whether or not the guy is into you.” –kristencarol2. “Making the first move is terrifying but it will be the most awesome terrifying thing ever.” 3. “The best pick up line in the world is ‘Hi, I’m (insert your name here).’” 4. Follow the “Three Month Rule.” 5. “Don’t commit to someone who hasn’t asked you to.” 6. And feel free to actually say no when you want to. 7. Don’t feel pressured to achieve any specific milestone by any specific time.
“There is no specific timeline that you have to achieve any specific milestone. Some of your friends are going to get married and start having babies early. Others will wait a bit longer. If you’re not one of the first to achieve either or both of those milestones (if that’s what you want), it’s okay. It will happen when the time is right. It’s better to be single than stuck with the wrong person.” –Jen Stone, Facebook8. Believe people’s actions, not their words.
“If he/she’s not contacting you, or playing games, or being flaky, etc., it’s pretty clear what they actually think, despite what they may have said.” –Mcfly77199. “Don’t drink excessively on first dates.” 10. Make sure you date on your own terms.
“Write a contract with yourself to date on your own terms. Be clear about what those terms are and advocate for yourself if it’s not working.” –Sean Fitch, Facebook11. Have no regrets. 12. Know that your “ideal” partner can change over time. So just do you right now.
“Focus on yourself, your goals, and with time, the right one will come around. After all, your 20s are the perfect time for you to explore and really find yourself. Besides, what you saw as an ‘ideal’ partner back in college may be totally different now!” –Valeria Marquez, Facebook13. And just completely forget about dating if you’re sick of it. 14. First, learn to be okay by yourself. 15. And don’t feel like you need to change for anyone.
