Whether you believe in true love or not, most agree that many people would like to find some form of companionship. Finding a date might be difficult if you lead a busy (or introverted) life, but there are ways to go about it that are easier than you think.
A very convenient way to do it is to go online. There are dating websites available and — a more recent development — mobile matchmaking apps.
All these make it easier to find possible partners using profiles and answering tests. These apps pre-screen possible matches, which increases the chance of finding people you have a lot in common with and making it easier to find a perfect date.
Six Degrees or Less
One of the easiest ways to find a date is to ask those close to you to introduce you to someone. Family and friends know you best and can find among their friends and contacts, a match for you.
Note that there might be a need for you to tell them some points of your preference — if there are any physical attributes or interests you are looking for, it would be best to let them know.
Putting it On Paper
One old way to go about finding a date is to put it on the classifieds. Depending on how you look at it, the lovers putting up advertisements in “Piña Colada” did find their true matches — just not someone new as they had wanted.
It does, however, bring up a very important point: when it comes to answering these ads or anything like them, one must exercise caution since you wouldn’t know who you’ll come face to face with.
No matter the method you choose, it pays to be careful. Everyone wants to put their best foot forward, of course, and you will only be able to find out who you’re really with until you’ve spent enough time with them. Know what you expect from the dates, be it for the long or short term.
