AD – This is a collaborative post, however, all opinions are my own.
It’s fair to say that COVID-19 has most definitely thrown a huge spanner in the works this year. There has been nothing but disaster, hurt and heartache all over the globe and It’s really upsetting to see. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that I hope to god all this negativity stays in 2020 and never comes back again. As much as its a scary time at the moment, I do believe in looking forward and I want to help you find that mindset too. If you are able too I promise it will change your life for the better.
Life is way too short and I think this year has shown us that more than ever. It’s time to start planning and preparing for what the world will have to offer us once this pandemic passes. Sit back, relax and ask yourself what is it that you truly desire in 2021?

HOW TO APPROACH THE DATING SCENE:
Firstly, you want to figure out what you feel comfortable with and take it from there. If you are still worried about the pandemic and want to take it slow then that is completely understandable. There are many ways in which you can date without even having to leave your home. That is the great thing about the internet.
Take a look if there are any dating events going on locally to where you live? Sometimes there are speed date evenings, blind date programmes and/or dating sites specific to your area. I know that I am from the county Kent and there are some great websites to help you find a date in Kent. That way you will be able to meet people local to you also immediately!
Online dating websites have been connecting singles since 1994. Free dating online has also been known to be a very successful method of finding love. There are many success stories from couples out there so if you are reluctant to give it a go you can always read 4 great stories here.
10 TIPS FOR BUILDING UP YOUR SELF CONFIDENCE
I don’t know about you but I know my self-confidence has plummeted quite a lot since having to lock myself away for so long. I actually now suffer from quite bad anxiety when I see other human beings outside of my house. This is all because I’ve spent so much time being a hermit in lockdown and forget my social queues. Living with anxiety can be extremely tough and nobody deserves to have to put up with it and suffer.
- Read positive affirmation to yourself every morning.
- Appreciate the little things in life.
- Don’t focus on the things you can’t change about yourself.
- Make sure to set aside time for yourself aka; self-care Sunday!
- Don’t put so much pressure on yourself by aiming too high
- Treat yourself to something nice once a month.
- Make sure to wear perfume or aftershave as it will help to make you feel sexier.
- Talk to yourself that same way you would talk to your best friends
- Remind yourself that NOBODY is PERFECT.
- Do one thing that scares you every day. I recently did this and you can read all about it here.
KNOW YOUR WORTH:
Never change yourself to please and impress someone else. If someone can’t accept you at your worse they sure as hell don’t deserve you at your best. I think it’s very important to go into the world of dating with an open mindset. Don’t go in desperately needing to find someone as soon as you can. Go in with the excitement of potentially meeting someone that you match with on a mutual level. There have been times in my life where I’ve felt so alone and desperately wanted to find someone to fix that feeling of emptiness. It almost NEVER works! Instead, I have joined dating sites at times that I’ve felt good about myself and the outcome was so much more successful. Now put yourself out there and find your very first and who knows maybe your last date.
