7 simple ways to find a date before Valentine's day on 14th February...
Having successfully celebrated Christmas holidays and crossed over to the year 2017, most lonely single persons across the world begin to worry over spending Valentine’s day on 14th February alone.
This lonely phenomenon is normal because humans have always wanted a partner – someone with whom they can be intimate with, share their most private feelings and really be themselves.
Today, whilst most singles are left on their own to find a spouse without family interference, several others do not bother to look for a spouse at all. They strongly believe God will physically bring that special person to them. Other singles, too, feverishly engage in varying Godly and ungodly activities which ‘help’ them find partners.
Note: Common to all these aforementioned activities is the traditional/conventional method of physically approaching a total stranger to woo and ‘date’.
Thus, only extrovert singles with strong social skills are able to find a ‘date’. So, what then happens to singles with low self-confidence, probably in their thirties and are constrained with 8am to 5pm workaholic lifestyles?
Here are top 7 ways singles can use to find a date before Valentine's Day on 14th February:
1. Online Dating
With the advent of digital technology, online dating platforms like Ghana’s sweeedy.com, has become an amazing platform which connects singles worldwide to form cherished relationships that may lead to marriage. It gives singles an opportunity to meet interesting and exciting fellow single Ghanaians worldwide, and privacy in the comfort of their homes.
If one was to search the Internet for success stories, one would find hundreds of thousands of them. You simply have nothing to lose but all to gain by trying online dating. What can be wrong with a sister/brother/friend/neighbor getting his/her spouse online, and enjoying a healthy, happy relationship which may lead to a marriage???
2. Spend Time to Create a Unique but Honest Profile
Determined singles should spend time filling out their online profile because it is the surest way to attract a compatible partner before Valentine’s day which is 14th February, Think of it this way: would you contact anyone with an incomplete profile? Certainly No! Be very honest and truthful in completing your profile in a clear and unique manner. When you twist the truth, then you are setting yourself up for disappointment and wasted opportunities.
3. Upload a Charming Profile Picture
Your Profile pictures are the first thing interested suitors will ever see! So, find your best pictures and upload them onto the dating platform. The picture should be a portrait showing only yourself in a very decent natural pose. You can go the extra mile to hire a professional photographer, and have him or her take photos of you in your natural environment. Remember, a picture is worth a thousand thoughts.
4. Commit Your Online Adventure to God through Prayers
The Holy Bible states that Christians should seek God and He will fulfil their desires (Psalm 103:5; Romans 12:2) in His perfect way and His perfect time (Romans 5:6; Romans 8:26-27). Therefore, all Christian singles are required to pray that God would connect them to someone of their heart desire. All Singles must always go slow with building a friendship and be mindful of not allowing their ‘sexual feelings’ lead them ‘astray’.
5. Upgrade Your Account to Premium
Singles should always opt for a paid site/app like Ghana’s sweeedy.com. This is because such paid platforms are likely to have the latest scamalytic-softwares which detect and eliminate spammers, fake profiles and imposters.
Again, paid platforms are known to have features which enhance the chances of singles being found by prospective suitors. For instance, sweeedy.com provides paid users a bigger profile pictures with highlighted gold boarders plus live video chat, which is a great way to authenticate the identity of the person behind the profile.
6. Apply Wisdom and Trust Your Instincts
Always use your God-given wisdom when searching and communicating with anyone online. Create a user “nickname” with a name that does not include your surname or any other identifying information such as your place of work or where you live.
At all times, pay attention to your instincts when communicating with someone online. God has placed something special in everyone that prompts us when something is not right. Use common-sense to end conversation with anyone you doubt or suspect of being an imposter, fraudster or fake.
7. Meet In Person As soon as Possible at a Public Place
Singles should as soon as possible meet up with each other at a public place and inform friends/families about their meetings. Common to all the online dating success stories is the transition from the online world to the "real world".
This gives you the opportunity to examine each other in the “real world”. It is very vital for singles to examine how the other partner treats others, handles everyday frustrations etc. Such meetings help singles make wise decisions on whether to continue exploring or not.
