If you’re team single and planning on staying single in 2020, then this blog isn’t for you. But if you’re one of the many Oregon singles who wants to find love in the new year, we have dating resolutions that will help you out.

Today, our Portland matchmakers are going to the reveal the top dating resolutions to find love in 2020.

  1. Just do it, step out of your comfort zone.

One great way to get a fresh start in 2020 is to challenge the dating habits you set or maintained during 2019. This can be as simple as chatting it up with a stranger at a local coffee shop instead of sitting at home doing the online dating thing. Believe us, no matter how awkward it may be at first, you’ll get better.

Challenging your dating habits can also mean switching up the types of people you ask out on dates and the types of dates you go out on. A lot can be learned when you’re dating someone from a different background. You can also find that asking potential candidates out to a local festival or wine tasting event is much better than the normal dinner and drinks date. Make 2020 be the year you think outside the box and get creative with your dates.

  1. Don’t put up with ghosting.

Ugh, unfortunately we don’t think ghosting is going anywhere in 2020. In other words, there’s no escaping it.

It’s exhausting to think about the whys and what-ifs when it comes to dating. You may never know what the other person was thinking. But what you do know is that you’re a great person who deserves someone who treats you right. If you still can’t shake off curiosity after getting ghosted by someone, your best bet is getting acquainted with the fact that things just didn’t work out. Accept it and move on.

You may feel powerless if your crush is the one who’s ghosted you. However, do your best to put it behind you and move on. You deserve someone who will never do that to you. And you can’t find them if you’re dwelling on this person who didn’t respect you.

  1. Be clear about what you want.

Are you looking for a long-term and committed relationship? Or maybe you’re not looking for something serious right now and just want to test the waters. There’s nothing wrong with wanting either of these things (or anything in between). But being clear about your dating expectations can help you achieve your dating goals in 2020. It can be scary to be honest about what you really want in a partner – and it can be harder than you think. But if you really want to achieve your dating goals, you must first know what you want.

If you don’t know what you want out of dating, then you’ll never find it. Furthermore, if you know what you want and don’t make it clear, your dates won’t know what you’re after. You could lose out on great opportunities and potential partners if you don’t make your expectations clear. Be upfront and honest to avoid wasting your time with the wrong partners.

Dating isn’t easy today. But our Portland matchmakers have a few dating resolutions to make it worth it. Use these three dating resolutions in the new year and watch how much easier and more enjoyable it becomes. Above all, be confident and see where 2020 takes you.
