You have been dating for a while and finally find someone who epitomizes everything you’ve been looking for! He or she has the personality, looks, shared interests and values that match yours. It seems that it’s the time to chase this individual; however, it is really the occasion to double down on grounding yourself to what’s important to you.If you come across an exciting new love interest, the instinct to try hard to get this person to like you back is completely understandable. Questions such as, “How do I make him want me?” or “How can I get her attention?” may pop into your head. You might even feel like you’ll do anything to make this connection happen. Yet, this impulse can work against you. If you chase, it may make your potential new mate pull away. He or she may also make time for you occasionally, and then ghost you on other instances, knowing you’re always there. The best advice of what singles should do when they meet someone that strikes them is to put even more emphasis on what they get meaning from. Focus on your hobbies, passions, leveling up at work, activities you enjoy, your purpose, and spending time with friends or family. Connecting to the things that give you worth outside of the person you’re desiring is most important during this time. We all know what it’s like to be searching for a partner and then suddenly meeting someone who truly excites you. Singles would love for this person to reciprocate their feelings and their instinct is to chase. The way to navigate this process, however, is to know your sense of worth regardless of the outcome. If it doesn’t work out, you still have meaning from many other areas of your life. If your new love interest does show interest back, then you could be on your way to a wonderful partnership!
