Finding time for dating is as essential to your life as you want it to be. If you want to share your life with the right person you have to first meet them. Then the question lingers, "How do I find this person?" 

The easiest, most practical way of course is with deliberate and concise thinking just before laying down to sleep.  The intention is that they'll appear after a really good dream of the perfect person and like magic...waalah! They are fixing you breakfast right there in your kitchen in their birthday suit but then you awake only to find an empty kitchen.  You have realized it may take a little extra work than dynamic dreams to find the one for you.   Like with anything you want, you need to put in time and effort to find someone until your dream is cultivated into reality. 

Most importantly you have to want it and be open.  Let's explore some simple ways of finding the right person for you.

1. Your Friends and Family 

Who know's you better than your friends and family?  Who have you trusted over the years and would want to see you happy?  Ask them casually, “hey do you know of anyone who you think may be a match for me?”. They may have forgotten about their single attractive neighbor, or a colleague who’s also in the same boat.  Asking won't hurt, and your loved ones will jump at the opportunity to help you. 

2. The Infamous Online Dating Scene

Contrary to popular belief, the online dating scene is no longer a shameful secret.  People date online! The number one reason I hear why people do not register to online dating sites is that it's too impersonal and that they don't know the people with whom their meeting.  No matter how you meet a stranger, if it's through a friend, at the grocery store or at a bar, they are a stranger until they no longer are. 

Online dating is a very legitimate, though time consuming way of finding someone.   You should be alert and smart, no less than you’d be if you met them organically as people say.  It takes patience and absolute dedication to find someone on these online dating sites, and then there are times where my friends have found their spouses by being online for only a week or two.  So when it's meant to be, it'll be,

3. Get Out!

The only way to meet new people is to GET OUT!  Try a Salsa Dancing Class,  go out to a local bar and chit chat with the person next to you, join a book club, or volunteer.   You may not meet the person your met to be with right then and there but you'll learn a better way of adaptation, and if you continue going out on your own, you'll be a dating magnet in no time! 

I understand those who may have anxiety about going out on their own. It will certainly take an act of faith and bravery but persistence will prevail.  I have faith in you! 

4. Personal Matchmaker 

Hiring a professional matchmaker is perfect, especially when you are too busy for online dating and when no other conventional method has worked thus far. A personal matchmaker looks for someone who is best suited for you, therefore supplying you with qualified dates. 

The best way to find a great matchmaker is by meeting with them in person, asking them pertinent questions, reviewing their company's contract thoroughly, and getting a clear grasp of what they will be doing for you and what you will be gaining as a result of paying for their services and for how long.  Look for great reviews and also take heed and meet with multiple matchmakers and compare their services.
