Question: How to get a significant other?

Dear Reader, 

First, let’s take a moment to establish some basics: everyone should understand that having a significant other (SO) is quite a commitment if you want a healthy relationship. It requires trust, loyalty, and respect which are built up over time. So, unfortunately, getting a SO is not something you can do in a day. But we’re here to help you!

First, find someone you are interested in. Your future SO should be someone who can make you laugh and that you can have fun with. Make sure you have a spark! If these things are true, it will make the next steps so much easier.

Next, find out what that person’s interests are and see if you share any. It can be scary to talk to someone you have feelings for, but it will be easier if you have a shared interest so you don’t run out of things to talk about. You will begin to get to know the person and what they like. This might take a while but it is building the framework for a strong relationship. 

Once you feel a connection has been made, make sure you act on your feelings. If you don’t tell them how you feel, they may never know. It doesn’t have to be scary, just ask them out to coffee or to hang out with you separately. If they say ‘yes,’ great! If they say ‘no,’ be respectful of their wishes.

It’s important to remember that your worth doesn’t revolve around what someone else thinks about you. Rejection is a part of life; however, we hope that doesn’t happen to you. Be true to yourself—you have nothing but time to find the perfect person for you.

And that’s our two sense.
