Finding Mr or Miss right is, for most people, a difficult challenge, and even those who are happily settled agree that they are lucky to have found their ‘one’. Most of us have to go through quite a few failed relationships before finally finding the right person, and it can seem entirely hit and miss at times. But there are three straightforward and easily implementable ways to open yourself up to improving your chances in finding Mr or Miss right.

Let people know you’re looking

Firstly, let people know that you’re looking for a relationship. This is often hard to admit, as “I’m happy being single” is often our default defence if we’ve either been let down, or haven’t found who we’re looking for. You don’t have to shout it from the rooftops, but by letting friends, family and colleagues know you’re looking, they can help in your search and be there to support you in the highs and lows of dating. Your perfect person could come from any direction, so open all avenues available to you.

Don’t focus on the superficial

This next point can be tough if you think you have a “type”, but bear in mind that having one hasn’t worked for you in the past, or you wouldn’t be looking! Try not to focus on superficial traits. You obviously can’t ignore them completely as there will need to be some chemistry to attract you in the first place, but don’t limit yourself by being too specific or by looking for perfection. Remember, you haven’t met your “type” yet so you need to be open to possibilities.


I know we keep talking about this, but confidence is a very important element in finding love. And, as we’ve said before, if you don’t feel it, learn to fake it! You’re not trying to be someone you’re not, but simply helping your personality to shine. Confidence is sexy and no matter how tall, slim or intelligent someone is, people are drawn to those who project confidence. The harsh truth is that most of us are average looking. On the flip side, this also makes us unique, so don’t get hung up on body issues, just concentrate on what you like about yourself, sometimes it can help to make a list. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and many things you find perfect about a model or celebrity, others may not agree with.

Meeting the right person could happen anywhere, so be confident and meet a wide range of people and accept invitations!
