Have you ever felt that you’re cursed when it comes to love? Have all your previous relationships come to a tragic end, leaving you distraught, bitter and vengeful? Had you initially lost your faith in love? If so, then I have some good news for you: You have the power to turn around the situation this year. 2014 can finally be the year that cupid smiles at you. There are a number of things you can do to find true love this time around.

First and foremost, I’d suggest a brain-change. If finding a life partner is part of your resolutions, then this is the time to pour out all those negative thoughts about love and replace them with an optimistic mentality. Stop focusing more on the demerits of having an affair and instead shift your mental energy to appreciating all the good tings that come with love. To quote the good book, “As a man thinketh, so he is”.

Loving yourself is another vital step. In order to be able to share your love with someone else, you must first have it overflowing inside you. Love who you are and treat your body with respect. Dress up in comfortable and decent outfits. Go to the gym to shed some weight if need be. Practice hygiene to the optimum.  Be comfortable with your body and love who you are. Only then will you be able to reciprocate some of the love outwards and attract a potential life partner.

For all of you who are single and seriously searching, this is the year to be more social. Instead of staying in for the night during weekends, why not go out once in a while? Be a little more adventurous this year and attend a few parties here and there. Join youth groups and study groups at your church and school respectively. Even on Facebook, be more vibrant. I know many ways of meeting a potential partner, but cowering in a room and hiding in a dark corner isn’t one of them.

Other than love, would have anything else to offer to your partner? If you’re serious about finding love, this is the year to work harder than ever before. Getting that promotion at work will increase your chances of finding Mr/Mrs. Right. Excel more in your studies this year. Grow your career. Just follow your dream to the fullest, and your soul-mate will be attracted towards your passion.

I am no clairvoyant to predict a bed full of roses in your relationships this year. However, I believe that by following the steps above, you will effectively increase your chances of falling in love with the right person this year round. 🙂
