1. No brooding

Of course, you need to stop doing this. Make sure to learn how to live in the moment and enjoy what you have. After all, what do you get out of brooding over things that never happened? Happiest are the ones who can stay in the moment, accept their reality, and carve a life out of it. It is easier said than done, but how are you ever going to know the outcome if you don’t even try it out? For the sake of your own peace of mind, try not to brood and see how wonderful life shall look.

2. Say no to jerks

Some of us find it really hard to say no. You have to understand that when you are dating someone, there is no need to agree to anything and everything that they say. You will come across your share of jerks and you are not obliged to date them. Learn where to draw the line and stand up for yourself. You need to say no to those who don’t deserve to be with you. A right decision can save you a lot of unwanted hassles.

3. Self-pampering

Call me a narcissist, but I believe that we all need to pamper ourselves every now and then. There is no way you can do without pampering. Let this year be the year of pampering where you will fall in love with yourself. Have you heard how important self-love is? Those who cannot love themselves are least capable of loving others. This is why you need to spend time learning how to love yourself first. Let this New Year be the time when you can enjoy the moments spent in solitude. Remember there is a huge difference between being alone and being lonely. The moment you understand this, you can start to begin sorting out your life.

4. No awkward pauses

I literally have lost count of the number of times I have let a good date go bad because of my tendency for weird questions and long awkward pauses. I often start dreaming about something else mid-conversation, which totally messes up the date. If you too often find yourself in such situations, make a resolution to avoid all such pauses. Maybe, if you can be yourself confidently and simply go with the flow, such weirdness and awkwardness will cease to exist.

5. Slow and steady

The key to good dating is to take it slow and steady. The matters of the heart are not meant to be rushed. You need to be very particular about the kind of guys you are dating. Just because you don’t have a date or you are not seeing someone doesn’t mean that you need to rush into the next relationship as soon as the first guy shows interest in you. The idea is to make sure that you give yourself the right time to gauge what you are feeling and if you should take it forward. This is the kind of approach you need to have. I am not saying that you will never make mistakes but we can at least cut down the probability.

6. Stop the stalking

You really need to commit to this resolution. How often do you end up on a post from some four-odd years back as you dreamily look at the comment from your ex on Facebook? Do you end up stalking your ex’s Instagram and then chain-stalking his girlfriend and her brother and his girlfriend and what not? Stop this right away. Don’t be an online stalker because this is where you are truly digging your own grave.

7. Get rid of regrets

Yes, make this resolution right away. What is the point in chaining yourself to regrets and thinking of all those “what ifs” and “maybes” that are never going to work out for real? Life is a journey and it is up to you to make the most of it. All of those who spend their life in regrets are not going to make it anywhere. There is a reason something or someone is no longer a part of your life and you should accept it rather than run away from it, or worse, wallow in it. This resolution alone can take you to new places in 2016, which will paint too many smiles on your pretty face. You deserve it!

8. Open up, smile, meet

Really, dating is that simple. The idea is to take a step to actually open up. If you really want to date someone, you can’t keep yourself closed off or secluded. You will have to be sure that you are opening up and meeting new people. You must smile at others and give yourself an honest chance of making your date work. We do understand that sometimes even the thought of a date can give you cold feet, but in the end, you have to be your own hero. Let the New Year be the year of positive changes, and why not be a lot more confident and positive while you’re at it? Smile, as it helps you win half the battle.

9. Close the ex files

This is a MUST. Don’t carry old baggage. You have to be sure that you can get rid of the ex files once and for all. This New Year, welcome newness and freshness. You should not be carrying any of your old flames with you. Ever wondered what it would be like to move forward while looking backwards? You are destined to fail and this is not going to help you out. No matter how many old flames you had and regardless of the intensity with which you loved them, don’t bring them up, especially not on new dates. Trust me; no one wants to date someone who still whines over their long lost love.

Yes, yes, and a thousand times, yes! There are no doubts about this. This year, one of your New Year’s resolutions should be to believe that you are cool, hot, and fabulous. Stop thinking that you’re not good enough to date. You’re awesome, but you are just waiting for the right person to come along. Do not let your self-consciousness become the reason for your lack of confidence. This year will be the year of reinventing yourself. Once you are comfortable in your own skin and you rock your awesomeness quotient, there is nothing that will make you fall short. The right guy will definitely come along.

Loved the above pointers? I know you did, but make sure to come back next year and tell me how amazing the year turned out to be. What is life but a little ride of some amazing times! Let us all raise our hands and spread love because we, girls, are born with hearts of gold.

Raise your fist, take an oath, coin these New Year’s resolutions and off you go. And hey, while you’re going, Happy New Year peeps! Make it a good one.

Shruti Fatehpuria

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
