This has been said many times, but finding true love truly is one of the keys to maintaining a lasting and healthy life. When you have a partner to share your experiences with, it really can make your life more fulfilling and gratifying as you continue on your journey over the years.
Getting older isn’t a fun thing to think about, but the aging process becomes much more enjoyable when you have someone else to share your life with! One thing that really turned things around for me was finding a great guy to date, and eventually marry. Dating wasn’t always easy for me, and to be honest, it actually became something that I really had to work on. One of the biggest keys to dating is persistence.
When I first entered the dating world some years ago, I wasn’t at all sure of where to start. It felt like there were a million guys out there, and I had no idea how I could find the right one for me. I finally decided to just jump in the water and go for it, after a friend set me up on a blind date. I was extremely nervous going into it, but once we met at a local diner for dinner, the night went well and I figure out that dating wasn’t as scary as I initially thought! Turns out that guy wasn’t the one for me, but what this experience taught me was that dating can be fun, and if I really wanted to find true romance, then I need to get out there and meet a variety of men – I knew eventually I would find the right one!
It actually took me several years until I met “the one,” and believe it or not, the process was actually pretty fun! When I finally met my man, I knew instantly he was the one for me. It helped that I had had the chance to get to know several men, as I had a better idea of exactly what I was looking for in a relationship.
Now obviously things have really changed with dating in recent years, and if you’re just jumping into the dating game, then there are a lot tools at your disposal for finding the right man or woman for you! There are tons of resources online that provide great dating advice for men and women, and if you are unsure of where to look, just try a quick Google search.
I don’t want to take a ton of time boring you with the dating details though…The real point of this post is just to let you know that finding a significant other can be a great way to bring happiness to your life, while also improving your health for the long run. One example that I have for this is that my partner and I know enjoy a variety of “healthy” activities together, and we’re able to keep each other motivated. We go running together several times a week, have entered marathons and half marathons, and in addition to that we also find time to go hiking, rafting, golfing, and biking. Because we have each other we always have someone to enjoy fun activities with, and it has also been an opportunity for us to bond, and connect emotionally and spiritually as well!
While you may not thinking that dating is for you, maybe just get out there and try it! Whether you use the advice of a friend and go out on a blind date, or sign up for one of the hundreds of match making services online, we hope that you have success finding a partner who can make you happy and healthy!
