The New Year has arrived, and whether or not you had someone to kiss at the stroke of midnight, you may make some resolution in regards to your love life. Whether you’re fabulously single or truly committed, read on for some vows to make for a successful love life in 2009.
If you’re single, you will vow…
To be happily single. There are many women who desperately look for love before truly loving themselves first. Be content with who you are and appreciate being single; when you do eventually find Mr. Right, it’ll be because you want him, not because you feel you need him.
To look beyond your type of guy. When looking for love, we all have a list of attributes The One should and should not possess. By straying from the list a bit—or even tossing it out altogether—you may just meet someone great who you would’ve originally cast aside.
To not give up. The dating scene can be rough, and it’s easy to give up when one, two, three potentials turn out to be duds. However, if you’re really on the lookout for that special someone, giving up is not an option. We all have to go through a few frogs before we find that prince, so dive in with a smile on your face and keep your eyes open.
To look for a friend first. We’re all looking for a good—nay, great—lover, but when meeting someone new, look beyond the superficial: if you can talk easily with him, trust him, and be yourself around him—i.e. the foundation of a good friendship—then the rest will easily fall into place.
If you’re in a relationship, you will vow…
To still be an individual. When you’re one half of a couple, it’s easy to make it all about you and him. Be sure to spend time with good friends, family, and especially yourself every once in a while—and don’t let go of any personal hobbies or dreams.
To make time for your partner. We all lead hectic lives and it’s easy to push your man by the wayside when pre-occupied with other things. Make sure to spend quality time together, even something as simple as having breakfast together in the mornings. You can also schedule a weekly date night to catch up and focus on one another.
To be creative. Thinking outside the box is a great way to keep that fire between you and your guy going. Whether it’s trying a new restaurant for dinner or thinking of new places to make love, adding variety to your relationship will certainly keep it fresh.
To learn new things about your partner. We’re sure there’s something about your man that you may not know. Even if it’s something as trivial as letting you know that he broke wind in public once when he was a kid, encourage him to confide in you about anything. In the same vein, share some of your thoughts, secrets and most embarrassing moments, and this will bring you closer and make your relationship stronger.
