So here at King of Hearts, most of the topics that we cover are geared towards brides. Women who have found their dream partner, and are excitedly planning the day when they get to walk down the aisle and say ‘I do’. But I know that we get a lot of bridesmaids here too. These are the women who are supporting their closest friends on the biggest day of their lives. And though you’re happy for your friend, and you’re so pleased that she’s found the one, if you’re unhappily single, it can be a bit of a testing time.
Yep, I said it. I know, because I’ve been there. Until I met my fiancé, I was very much always the bridesmaid and never the bride. But what I want you to know is that meeting the man of your dreams is very possible. And these feelings that you’re grappling with right now could be exactly what you need to make yourself get out there and make things happen.
Fed up with being always the bridesmaid? Here are my best tips for changing that…
Try online dating with an open mind
Dating sites used to seem a lit bit tacky, and let’s be honest, a little bit desperate. But that it definitely no longer the case. In the modern world, they’re a fantastic way to meet new people and get dates booked into your diary, and there’s absolutely zero shame in signing up for them.
Signing up to a Yorkshire dating site could be the start of something really special, and you never know where it might take you. Isn’t it time to get rid of those outdated views that are holding you back?
Challenge your ideas of the ideal man
Got a check list that every man you meet needs to be measured up against? Having standards is a wonderful thing, but sometimes we get too stuck in our ways. It may be the case that your perfect partner is three inches shorter than you imagined him to be… But honestly, does that really matter?
When you sign up to dating sites in Yorkshire, you need to be willing to think outside of your usual boxes. Be open to conversation, and see where it goes. This isn’t about dropping your standards, but challenging what you think you want and asking yourself if it’s really serving you.
Know that it’s never too late
Too often, we make up a ton of excuses about why we can’t find love. If you’ve been telling yourself that you’re too old, that you’ve waited too long, that it just isn’t going to happen to you, then you need to stop that. There’s someone out there for absolutely everyone, and senior dating can be hugely rewarding.
It’s just a case of challenging your current thinking, and taking action on what you really want. It’s out there, and it’s waiting for you.
It’s never great when you feel like you’re always the bridesmaid, never the bride. But there’s plenty you can do to change your story.
