Cupid’s Advice:

Cynicism is often times a defense mechanism. If you’ve been jaded by love in the past, then it’s common to become cynical about love. Here are some ways to stop being such a love cynic and find your perfect match:

1. Recognize that you’ve become cynical about love: Just like anything else, it’s important to identify your problem, so that you can overcome it. Take a look at how you view other couples and how you feel about your past relationships, if your thoughts are mostly negative, then this may determine just how cynical about romance you’ve become.

2. Challenge your inner love cynic: To change how you feel about love, you must challenge your current thoughts on being in a relationship. For instance, if you think that relationships are a waste of time, try seeing it another way. Look at a relationship as an experience to learn and grow from another individual, no matter the outcome of how it turns out.

3. Examine your social media posts: A great way to change your thoughts on love and become more open to the idea of a relationship, is to examine your posts on social media. If many of your shared posts are negative toward love and relationships, try unfollowing the original page that posted the content, so that you are not subject to that type of thought any longer.
