Some people meet the love of their life online while others prefer to look for someone in the area around them.
Both ways are perfectly okay and can both give you a fairytale ending.
If you’re the kind of girl that wants to meet your Prince Charming in real life, here’re some tips to help you do just that.
1. Say Hello in the Starbucks Line
Yes, it’s that simple! Wherever you are, when you see a guy that catches your interest, say hello. Nothing may come of it or everything may come of it! I have a cousin who met his wife in the shampoo aisle of the local Wal-mart. Love can find you anywhere; you just have to be open to it.
2. Meet That Friend of a Friend
Many, many couples come to be through the friend of a friend route. That’s how my husband and I met and we’ve been very happily married for 12 years now. If you have a friend who has a friend you think you could be interested in then don’t be shy! Ask for an introduction! This option has the advantage of the mutual friend getting to play matchmaker and helping you get your relationship off to a lovely start.
3. Flirt with the Cute Guy at Work
Some of you are lucky enough to work with a real hottie. Don’t let that opportunity pass you by! He may never know you realize he exists if you don’t let him know you notice him. It’s even possible he’s been harboring a secret crush on you. Flirting lets him know you’re open to seeing if there’s anything there. Besides, it’s fun to flirt!
4. Talk to Strangers
Of course you don’t want to talk to people that give you the creeps but when you’re an adult, you’re able to cautiously get to know new people. You want to be careful when getting to know anyone in any circumstance. But there’re a lot of great guys out there you’re going to miss out on meeting if you’re not friendly. Allowing yourself to strike up a conversation with a guy could lead to something beautiful. Be open to possibilities.
5. Observe Your Circle in a Different Light
There could be a great guy hiding right under your nose. Many times you know someone who you could have a great relationship with and you don’t even realize it. They may have even been hoping that you’d show some interest in them for a very long time. Think about all of the people you know. It could be a casual acquaintance such as a guy you always talk to when you walk your dog or someone in your direct circle such as someone you share a class with.
6. Don’t Ignore the Obvious
It’s got to be said! Don’t ignore the obvious, girls. Maybe there’s a guy that you know likes you but you haven’t given him the time of day. Back up and give that some thought. You may be overlooking the potential for something really great. At the very least, you could go on a date to see how it goes. You might be surprised!
7. Be Approachable
Lastly, being approachable is very important. If you constantly look irritated or are always complaining, guys will run! No one enjoys being around someone who’s always unpleasant. It’s okay to have your bad days; we all do.
Just be sure that you’re putting out a positive vibe most of the time.
With these tips, it won’t be long until you’ll meet a guy in real life.
