Finding a date can be really hard and emotionally trying, but we have great news for you! It doesn't have to be! So what's holding you back from finding your numero uno? Believe it or not, it has nothing to do with your looks, your money, your age, your education, your politics or any of the other things you likely think contribute to your solo status.
The biggest impediment to finding a date is simply having no idea who you want to spend your time with! It's easy to think that you should like a certain "type" because that's all you see on TV, or it's all your friends talk about. But it's really important to think about what matters most to you (and only you) when looking for a partner. Perhaps you really have a thing for potential partners that are the same height, because you love easily gazing into their eyes. Maybe you need someone with the same board game obsession that you have, but didn't think anyone would be interested in your hobby.
Just embrace the things you want in a partner, and don't worry about the optics. Take this quiz as a first step to finding out what kind of person you're supposed to date!
