What Dating Trends to Expect in 2023. A lot of the single men out there may be wondering if dating will return to its original shape in 2023.
Naturally, the answer is no, it isn't. Since we live in a post-covid era, individuals may not be as worried about the virus, but dating has changed drastically. We have had to negotiate this new climate in our dealings with my clients over the last couple of years, and I want to let you in on what to anticipate this year.
Right now, there are a lot of single women.
The number of users on dating apps who claim to have recently gone through a breakup or divorce has sharply increased. While the epidemic may have inspired some individuals to find love and start families, it also assisted many others in realizing they were not with the proper person. This is good news for you since it shows that there are lots of attractive females out there seeking the perfect man; all you need to do is find out how to contact her.
But keep in mind the state of the economy right now. Owing to inflation, people are referring to it as "infla-dating" and choose to go on unorthodox dates rather than the conventional nice dinner dates.
I talk a lot about how to get from being single to a relationship, but today I wanted to dig in a little deeper into how to actually be successful in a relationship. That is the ultimate goal, isn’t it? I don’t want my clients getting into a relationship only to have a hard time making it a good one.
I just got married in November after 5 years with my wife, and I wanted to share a little about what I think makes our relationship a success, that goes for everyone.
Number one is of course, a shared love and trust. Do you two have a deep, meaningful and fulfilling connection? If that is missing, there really may not be much more to do or share in the relationship. This person should be your best friend and lover! That is the basic necessity for a loving relationship. I look to the advice of the greats like John Gottman, who along with his wife, is a psychologist whose research is at the forefront of couples therapy.
Getting a girlfriend without using dating apps is a lot easier than you think.
But that being said, it will be a bit uncomfortable because it will mean that you actually have to talk to women.
Yes, I said it - talk to women.
Be social, get out of your comfort zone, make small gestures, smile and build fun, playful conversations with people.
And no, I do not mean in virtual reality or in video games, I mean in real life.
Now you're probably thinking, ok where am I going to meet women in real life? I work 9-5 and I don't have much time.
Well, the best time to go and meet women is in your transition periods.
What is a transition period?
A transition period is a time in between something that you are doing in your daily life.
So, let's imagine you working the usual hours every single week. The average guy goes to a coffee place when he wakes up, maybe walks into Starbucks and then as he opens the door, he sees a very attractive woman in line so he gets behind her as he waits to get his coffee.
The new year is here! I feel that the older I get, the faster that time goes by!
I used to always remember hearing my grandparents or older people tell me, “When you get older time is going to fly by faster.” I never really believed that saying until I started experiencing it for myself!
I feel that it was just the other day that everyone all over the world was panicking about Covid-19, and taking all the toilet paper and other essentials!
People were going crazy all over the world and that was in 2020! Now we are already in 2022!!!!
It’s crazy because time did fly by and now, we are in another start of the year!
That being said, what are your goals for 2022?
Perhaps the last two years you celebrated new years with no new year’s kiss, no amazing woman to have on your side, and that's totally ok! You were on your mission, chasing excellence and working on your career and other goals.
But there's this myth that I want to debunk. When people say, “John, don’t worry about looking for a partner. The right woman will come along your path one day and you will find her.”
Excuse my language but that's the biggest bull sh** advice that is not true, and someone has to say it. It is a common belief that most men or women think one day their partner is just going to fall from the sky and into their laps, and they will find their perfect girlfriend to marry to live happily ever after.
This type of belief is what keeps most people single for years! Literally YEARS, and for some, for life!!!!!
How to Get a Girlfriend Online
Getting a girlfriend online is not as hard as you think. However, there has to be strategy before sailing your ship into the sea. You have to have a Plan. As Winston Churchill says, “Failing to Plan, is Planning to Fail.”
Most guys do exactly this, and this is one of the major reasons why guys don’t seem to have much luck in online dating apps. They don't have much of a strategy and also don't have a Plan.
It used to not be like this. The competition online wasn't as bad a few years ago, but since Covid-19 and where technology has been going, the percentage of people online has skyrocketed. And with new algorithms, the competition for men has become more fierce than ever.
So we have to have a plan. Let’s talk about the do’s and don'ts.
Since attention span nowadays is very short and people are actively swiping left or right, you need to have strong, solid profile pictures. Especially the first picture. There’s a reason people say “you never have a second chance to make a first impression” so much. It’s because unfortunately that’s how our brains are wired!
You're a professional or entrepreneur working 40+ hours every week.
You feel that there's more to life than just working day in day out.
You are sick and tired of waking up alone every single day. You get out of bed and thinking to yourself “this is not what i imagined my life would be like”
You thought that by now the success that you have in your career would just translate over in your love life. You thought it was part of the package.
Inside your head you're saying “I have success in my career. I have the money, I have the resources, but why am I still alone?”
3 Reasons why your Dating Life is Non-Existent as a Professional or Entrepreneur
#1: You keep waiting for the perfect moment.
A lot of guys think that to attract a high quality woman and relationship, they need to be “ready” first.
Once they have the perfect job title, make a certain amount of money, have their dream car or finally put in enough hours in the gym so that they’re jacked.
They say, “I’m working too much, I don't have enough time. Once I have more time then I will be ready to find someone and settle down.”
The truth is that if you are a professional or entrepreneur, you are always going to be working long hours. And you know that, don’t you? We all know you’re not just going to wake up one day and stop working, right?
There never ends up being a perfect moment, so the love life gets neglected and put on hold till “one day,” which might never happen.
The day that it could happen is the day you decide to make it happen. To talk to that girl you sometimes see in your neighborhood, to take her out on a date, and to be a responsive and decisive man that women want.
You have been lied to!
A lot of men think that as long as they take care of their career goals, and have success in that area of their life, everything will fall into place. They’ll attract the woman of their dreams and everything will be perfect!
The sad reality is, life just doesn’t work like that.
If that was the case, every successful professional or entrepreneur can easily find a girlfriend or they would be in a perfect relationship with their dream partner, and no one would be struggling in this aspect of their lives.
But that’s far from the truth. Actually, it is quite the opposite.
After college, when most men have entered their career or are running their business, they are not exposed to women the way they used to be.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
