Dating Resolutions for the New Year

It’s that time of the year again! January first is coming up and you’re wondering what the New Year has in store for your love life. If you’re looking to change your love life in 2022, just pair these New Year’s dating resolutions with a great WYP profile and you’ll be on your way to your best romantic year ever!

1. “I will save my best jokes for date number two. Or I’ll just go on a bunch of first dates.”

Seriously though, most online daters agree that a great sense of humor is one of the most attractive qualities. When going on dates this New Year, try to keep the conversation light and bring a smile to your date’s face. This lets your partner know that you care and want them to have a good time. And when the person across the table laughs at your jokes, you feel more confident to show your personality.

2. “This year, my dating resolutions will be more than a to-do list for the first week of 2022.”

If it takes you longer to think of your resolutions than to break them, it might be time to readjust your expectations. A good way to keep up your dating goals is to polish your profile and get out there! For many singles, their resolution is just to date more. By creating a standout WYP profile, you’ll spend less time scrolling and more time meeting the singles you’ve always wanted to date.

3. “I won’t make the same dating mistakes in 2022.”

Want to break those dating patterns that don’t serve you? Try meeting new people and don’t get hung up on the same type of person. When you think outside the box and give different people a chance, you create opportunities to connect with new friends and learn more about yourself. But dating resolutions start with getting out of your comfort zone.

4. “I’m gonna give romance a real shot this year.”

We’ve all heard the saying: it’s better to try and fail than never to try at all. But, when it comes to dating, it’s easy to make up excuses and not give relationships a real chance. This year, why not try to go on more second dates? 

What if your partner was nervous on the first date, but once they feel comfortable their personality really shines? What if you also show the best of yourself on date number two? Remember, you never know and it can’t hurt to give someone a second chance!

5. “I’ll stop trying to make ‘New Year, New Me’ happen. If it hasn’t happened all these years, it’s not gonna happen in 2022.”

The moral of the story here is that you’re great just the way you are. All you have to do is be yourself and the right person will click with you. It might take a few tries and several first dates, but that’s OK! You don’t need to change to find the right partner. Focus on enjoying yourself and the process of meeting new people.

6. “I’ll cut my screen time to 30 minutes per day.”

How will you meet new people if you don’t go on your phone? Let’s be real, everyone meets their dates online these days! So, instead of trying to cut back on your screen time this year, maybe the goal is to find someone you like and then stop using your phone. Because, once you’re on a date, you definitely want to focus on your date and let them know how into them you are.

7. “I’ll have more sex this year.”

That’s actually a good resolution. And the best part is that there are tons of singles who will have made this one of their own dating resolutions. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and find them!

8. “I’ll get up at 6am and workout every day so I can get in the best shape of my life and find a new significant other.”

Getting up to exercise every single morning of the year is unrealistic. Especially if you stay out late and party on New Year’s Eve! But it’s still great to set exercise goals. Not because you need to look better, but because working out is good for your health and it makes you feel great about yourself. 

And when you feel good, you’re also more attractive to others. So you definitely want to get moving. Whether you’ll do it every morning of the year, that’s another story!

9. “I will stop looking for potential dates everywhere I go.”

This is actually a good one because nowadays the internet is the best place to find a date. But, chances are, you’ll still keep your eyes peeled whenever you go out. And why shouldn’t you? You never know when or where you’ll come across the right person! It could be IRL, it could be on WYP. But you have to keep looking in order to find them!

10. “I won’t make New Year’s dating resolutions and will just let romance find me.”

Yes, it could happen. But why leave it up to chance? With WYP, you can take the online dating shortcut and have more fun with singles near you! So stop procrastinating and log in to your account today to meet attractive people who are ready to date you.
