How Spring Will Impact Your Dating Life In 2014

Question: Why is Spring considered ‘The Matchmaking Season’?

Answer: Because it’s the BEST time of the year to meet someone new!

Yes, spring still feels like a long way away. But actually, it’s right around the corner. In fact, many singles start thinking seriously about meeting someone new right after Valentine’s Day.

With that in mind, here are some (positive) ways that spring will impact your dating life THIS year:

  • New beginnings: spring is the season for renewal, for plants, animals and singles alike. Regardless of how your 2013 went, 2014 is a new year, and a chance to rejuvenate your love life.
  • The season of optimism: its hard not to feel optimistic when the spring flowers are in bloom. In dating, moreso than in any other aspect of life, optimism and positivity will lead to more dating success.
  • Shedding layers: its hard to flirt with a parka on. With the warmer temperatures, singles can shed some layers of clothing and kick start the virtuous cycle of dating, which often begins with a flirtatious smile.
  • More options: as singles all over Vancouver look to meet new people, there are simply more places for singles to meet.

7 Valentine’s Day Dating Myths Exposed

If you’re in a loving relationship, Valentines Day can be great. But if you’re single it can be stressful or even depressing. But does it REALLY have to be that way?

Actually, no. The first step in overcoming the myths surrounding Valentine’s Day is to know what they are.

So, here they are:

1. It means everything: the world won’t come to an end if you are dateless on Valentine’s Day. Lose the blues, meet-up with a few friends and use it as a chance to meet some new people.

2. It means nothing: if you do have someone special in your life, make an effort to show them how much you care. Yes, it’s a ‘Hallmark Holiday’, but leaving your sweetheart alone on Valentine’s Day will send the wrong message.

3. You have to celebrate it on February 14th: pick another day around that time and make it your own personal Valentine’s Day. It’ll be much less crowded and less expensive too!

4. It has to be dinner, chocolates and flowers: be unconventional; catch some live music, hit a museum or go ice skating at Robson Square. Creativity always trumps convention.

5. The earth has to move on Valentine’s Day: the best dating moments are ones that come naturally. Don’t feel pressured to do or say anything on Valentine’s Day that you wouldn’t do or say on any other date night.

6. You need to spend lots of money: in the dating world: meaning matters more than money. The best gifts are thoughtful ones, not necessarily expensive ones.

7. If I’m single on Valentine’s Day, I’ll be single all year: actually, Valentine’s Day is NOT the best time to meet someone new. But spring is, and it’s just around the corner!
