Cupid’s Advice:

Finding love in this modern dating scene can seem almost impossible. With the many dating apps, the insensitivity that’s come with technology and social media, and knowing that traditional ways of finding love are sometimes too unrealistic to play out, it can look pretty bleak out there for all the single folk. But, there are still some unique ways to find love that doesn’t rely on apps or constant worrying over social media. You might not get the opportunity to land yourself on a reality show to find love, but Cupid has some love advice on original ideas on finding love yourself:

1. Ask your friends for set-ups: I know that blind dates can seem terrifying and over-dramatized in film and media, but bringing back this model of finding others can actually work to your advantage. In fact, most young people do find love interests based on their friends. So, if you want to shoot your shot and trust a friend, ask them to help set you up with someone they know. Don’t give them any pressure! Just tell them that you’re open to anyone new, so they aren’t stressed to find you the perfect date.

2. Live your life for you: When you begin to start getting to know all the facets of who you are, and you live for yourself and no one else, you’ll go down a healthy life path. Doing what is right for you means you will be around jobs, places, and near people who further align with your life plan. You’ll have a much better chance of meeting a soulmate because they will also have a similar life path.

3. Use Uber as often as possible: Not technically a social media, this ridesharing service can actually connect you with others you might never meet elsewhere. When you choose the option to UberPool, you are meeting new people that you could have a connection with. It’s like a sort of speed dating that can end the moment you arrive at your location.
