I love this time of year. Much as I don’t love the colder weather and the darker commutes, there is something hugely satisfying about snuggling up with a loved one on the sofa or in front of an open fire. We are also rushing head first into the party season – whether it’s Halloween parties, Christmas events or planning for the biggest party night of the year with New Year’s Eve parties, it’s a great time to get your gladrags and dancing shoes on and get out and have fun.
Sometimes though, particularly if you are single, it can be a hard time of year. Sometimes we don’t want to go to all these things on our own, but without a significant other we don’t feel that we want to go. We also don’t necessarily want to be a third wheel (no matter how insistent our friends are that we aren’t) and therefore we often miss out on the best events. I think this is why this time of year is absolutely brilliant for online dating and setting out to meet new people – as there are lots of like minded people who also want to find someone to spend that festive time with, and perhaps even kiss at New Year’s on December 31st.
It doesn’t matter about your age, sex, financial position, employment, dating history, location……. The vast majority of us crave that life changing relationship where we feel like we’ve been swept off our feets and and that nothing will ever be the same again. That person who we feel we want to be with for our happily ever after! It doesn’t even matter where you live – there is always local dating opportunities such as dating sites in Devon. Just put into your favourite search engine your location and dating site (e.g. Devon dating site). There are sites for anyone and everyone. It doesn’t matter about your age either. I know so many people who don’t want to try online dating or apps because they are “too old” or it’s been too long since they dated. Well it doesn’t matter if you are 18 or 80, there is a site that will cater for you, for example for the age group that has a particularly high divorce rate (sometimes put down to people staying together until the kids leave home) there is over 50s dating.
Just remember that no matter your age or location, if you are too fussy you might well miss out on someone amazing. I know of so many people who have found that soul mate because they relaxed their search parameters. Just because that person is an inch or two shorter than you wanted, or they didn’t get a degree, does that really mean that they aren’t going to be suitable for you? Yes there may well be some absolute deal breakers (such as religion or beliefs) but I would definitely recommend that you relax your search where possible. I would also say that now is the perfect time to take the leap and start the search for your new year’s date!
