So you had some fun this summer. You worked a lot or a little. You visited some new places or sat home with your air conditioner. You met some interesting singles or the typical townies. You drank plenty of frozen margaritas on the beach or barely got tan lines.
You knew you were ready for a great relationship on Memorial Day Weekend and you know it even more as we approach Labor Day Weekend. Nevertheless, you are still single.
Don’t worry, there are a lot of singles out there in the same boat as you. The good news is the timing is right on. Now, more than ever, singles are looking to meet other singles just like you!
As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, people start realizing they’d rather curl up with someone else than sleep alone. They don’t want to be single for the holidays, and they know they need to start looking now. Because it’s kind of crazy to go on two dates and invite someone to meet the parents at Christmas Eve dinner, ya know?
When fall approaches, my dating coaching and matchmaking business starts booming. More and more singles approach me asking to set them up on dates. As we get into September, online dating subscriptions jump from ten to twenty percent. Strangers start emailing and asking me to make over their profiles. Immediately after Labor Day passes, the casual vibe of hooking up and dating in the summer disappears. Singles know it is time to say “peace out” to the flings and get down to the business of finding and keeping love.
If you are getting the idea that singles get a little more, umm, desperate for a relationship as summer ends, I won’t disagree with you! What I want you to know this Labor Day Weekend is this: Now is the best time and also the most difficult time to meet someone for a serious relationship. Right now, the supply and the demand are there. But your match options will soon dwindle if you don’t’ act fast.
Put yourself out there this weekend. Concerts, music festivals, arts fairs, pool parties, bbqs, brunches, historic parades, and the last days at the beach are all great ways to meet relationship-minded singles.
If you aren’t going away or don’t have many plans at home, get on some online dating sites. Create an online dating profile, start searching profiles of singles you’d like to meet, draft emails, and get ready to send them right after the holiday weekend. If online dating hasn't worked for you, there is a good chance you just aren't doing it well enough. It is worth a second or third try. Seriously.
Timing is everything when it comes to starting new relationships. And, you know what they say, there is no time like the present!
