So, apart from the fact that we’re in the middle of a pandemic, you can’t wait to get out again and start mingling with potential love interests. You were single and ready to mingle before the stay at home was put in place, and you’re ready to resume your old life when it lifts again.

Were there some things holding you back from making the most of your single life as a professional? If so, you might want to spend this time thinking about what you want to change, so that you can make the most of dating on the other side. Let’s talk about four tips for dating as a single professional.

1. Create a space for inviting a quality person to your life

For the right person, your clean good vibes matter more than look, money or social status. Who you attract and who you feel yourself attracted to reflect the mental and general life condition you are in.

Do you want to attract a kind, loving, inspiring person? Become one yourself.

In order to invite ‘the right person’ to your life, work on yourself first. Creating mental space and finding a peace of mind is a lifelong journey, but setting it as a priority to become the best, joyful version of yourself is the best start.

Ask yourself honestly:

  • What is the best in you can bring to the relationship?
  • What are the qualities you could work on?

If you don’t change the behavioural patterns which drive your actions you won’t evolve as well. Sometimes just a few mindset tweaks are needed, sometimes a professional psychotheraphy to make peace with your past. Whatever it takes, your peace of mind is priceless!

Do you treat what happens to you with joy and gratitude? Or rather you tend to complain all the time or hide yourself behind a bitter sarcasm or overworking?

Each, even the tiniest life situation can be a challenge to become a more genuinely likeable, kind and confident person you want to be. Use that opportunity and pay attention to how you response to everyday situation.

Are you grateful about your life and seeing a beauty in it? How otherwise you will be able to see the true beauty of the soul and life with another person?

Keep high quality interactions with people and don’t be afraid to cut out contact with people with whom interactions don’t bring you joy.

Physical space maters to, as it influences how we feel from the moment we wake up. How you’re living and “setting the stage” for the love you want.

You don’t need luxury, but certainly you need a tidy space with good vibes. Changing yourself can start from changing your surrounding. Try to always be around things you consider beautiful, soothing and comfortable to raise your vibes.

2. Make a list of what is important to you in your partner

Spend some time asking yourself about the person you want to share your life should be. And more importantly, how they should make you feel.

It’s worth making a physical list of what is crucial for you in your partner. Don’t be afraid to be specific and precise.

3. Commit to an Official Date

With the latest online dating phenomenon, it’s pretty easy to meet up with someone in an all-too-casual setting for a drink or a bite to eat. While this might sound like your idea of a good time, unfortunately, without a right respectful mindset towards the other person and yourself, it won’t take you too far if you’re looking for love.

If you want to take your single life seriously and date properly, try committing to proper dates. Remember, it’s all about quality over quantity – make each one of those dates counts. At the end of the day, the more you put into it, the more you’ll get out. If you want to find the right person, make sure you’re giving each date a chance to be that.

There is someone matching for everyone, even when you are most unique and socially awkward you can still find a great partner for yourself.

4. Get Regular Checkups

When you’re single and having a good time, you need to remember to check in with your sexual health now and then. While your dates so far might have come across as professional and incapable of giving you anything except for a good time, at the end of the day, it’s your responsibility to take care of what’s down there.

If you’re wondering about STD testing cost and what it’s going to take to get a clean bill of health, do a bit of research online to set up your next health care checkup.

5. Consider Trying a Dating Agency

We’ve moved on from Tinder and onto professional dating websites where your date is just as serious about seeing you as you are. However, sometimes this doesn’t quite do it, and you’re left wondering if you’ll ever find the one.

This is when you can think about joining a dating agency. There are also professional matchmakers out there, who can make sure you’re getting a lot out of your single life while staying on the right track.

Dating as a single professional isn’t easy – especially right now, while we’re all stuck at home. However, once this all blows over, you’ll be able to venture out again, armed with a new set of tricks to make it as worthwhile as possible.
