Where to find your soul mate

Is it me or when the sun is out, do you see couples everywhere? Not just walking down the street but also on Instagram and Facebook? If you are single this can make you feel even more alone. Well, I am here to tell you are not alone. Dating is easier in the modern age and I want to share some ways to get out and about. Maybe even push that comfort zone.

Dating apps. 
There is now a dating app for everyone from college students to senior dating there is one for us all. There really are endless possibilities out there. As we get older, it is hard to make connections. Dating apps give you an easy introduction to each other, They also give you matches based on your likes and dislikes. You get to read someone profile and make a judgement about whether you want to chat with them or not.  Technology is making our world so much easier why shouldn't it make dating easier. I love that people are finding their soul mates from across the world. I always found it hard to believe my soul mate could be someone I knew at school. Low and behold My husband grew up 650 miles away from me. Don't get me wrong I know it is hard being Older Dating Online. But why not give it a go. 

Speed dating
Why not try speed dating. I love this concept. It is not as scary as it sounds. You can find out about local events online. You all meet at an agreed venue normally a pub.  These events are fully organised and have people there to help you understand the process. You register and are given a number. Next, you get 5 to 10 minutes with each person, Then you move on to the next person. If you liked someone you can get there details and start a connection or not it is that simple. 

Blind dates 
We all have that one person in our group who loves to fix people up on blind dates. Why not? As long as you are sensible about it. Arrange a time and place. You never know what can happen. I know a married couple who met this way. Just remember to be safe always tell someone where you are going and check in with them. There is no harm in having a friend nearby just in case you need a get out of jail free card. 

Double dates. 
Why not get one of your couple friends to organise a double date. This will take the stress out of a blind date and you will have them there to help the conversation flow? Normally it's our friends who know us the best. So why not enlist them to help us find our partner? Let's face it when things go wrong how many times have your friends said I told you so. Give them the chance to help. 

Online games. 
This one might seem strange. But I actually know a couple who met playing an online game. They were both obsessed with this game and got pitted against each other and from there they started playing all the time together. This lead to them Naturally Dating with the swapped facebook details and have been together three years. It can happen anywhere honestly.

Tv shows, 
Ok so this one is not for everyone but there are shows like Love island and first dates. You have an audition to go on these programs.  They match you up with a date or you are put in a house with lots of potential dates. I have to say I love Ex on the beach. I love the drama in it. But it doesn't have to be like that. There have been love matches from dating show in the past who knows this might be the way you find your other half. 

Join a group
Why not join a gym or what about that painting group you have always wanted to try but never got around to doing it. If you join something you already like doing you already have something to talk about and maybe even find a connection with someone. Even if you don't, it will make your social group a lot bigger.  Finding new friends is always a great way to open doors and we all need friends to don't we? 
The most important thing before you start to look for that one special person. Is to find love for yourself. Remember that old saying. "you need to love yourself first". This is true. You do. How can you possibly know what you want in a partner if you don't know what you want in life yourself? 
Don't forget to take some you time and decide what you are looking for? Not everyone is looking for the perfect soulmate some people just want companionship.
