After appreciating the journey and learning of the pitfalls, we now seek to answer the most important question, HOW.
Let us look at a few ways we might employ to find Love.
I want you to think of a product. If a product is made and is locked away in a box, no one will ever know the product exists.
To make the product known, manufacturers advertise.
Part of the reason why you might be single is you don’t expose yourself to the right people.
If you are in a constant environment where you know everyone and everyone knows you, you might be single for a while.
If you work with family and friends, then you are bound to be single for a while because family and friends can’t ask you out.
Dating sites help you see and be seen by people far and wide.
More to this, dating sites clearly define the agenda of everyone there and this makes it easier.
There are a lot of dating sites one can join; it all depends on your preference.
In the Bible, we read of a young beautiful lady called Ruth. She spent most of her time with her mother-in-law Naomi. Ruth needed a husband and Naomi told her what I’ve just told you, Ruth put yourself out there!!
Do dating sites work? You can read amazing stories of how couples who have been married for year met on dating apps.
IT’S OKAY TO HIT ON A GUY.
Traditionally, women don’t make the first move but ask yourself whether you want to follow tradition or you want a husband.
Contrary to what most think, it is not a desperate move. If you like a guy, go for it!!
Ruth is still fresh on our minds, so what did Ruth do? Ruth hit on Boaz and that bold move cemented her place in history.
At the end of the day, when you are happily married, no one remembers you made the first move.
Question is, what are you waiting for?
Recent research has shown that women who make the first move have more successful relationships.
Think about that.
ATTENDING SINGLES EVENTS.
There are many singles events held every year, why not attend one of them.
There are a lot of fun activities organized for single people, why not try out such events.
Many Churches have Singles Ministry, why not try that.
There are a lot of single people out here!
MAKING IT INTENTIONAL.
Most of the time being in relationships is something we leave to chance.
We pray and hope it happens but we never really take the steps to make sure it happens.
For you to find love past 30, then the process has to be intentional.
If finding love was as intentional as getting a promotion, then we would not even be talking about this.
Make finding love intentional and love may come sooner than you expect.
THERE IS SOMEONE FOR EVERYONE.
A 50 year old man was surprised to learn that an 84 year old mum had fallen in love with a 90 year old man in the nursing home!!
There is someone for everyone and if you keep on looking, you will find one meant for you.
We have heard of death throw prisoners finding love a few months to their execution.
Cheer up; be hopeful, look forward to it, there’s someone for everyone.
