Finding Your True Love - Cupid's Arrow Has Found Its Target

How do you know when you've found true love? Does it even exist? If so, how do you go about finding it? These are questions that have plagued men and women down through the centuries. Some are lucky enough to have it. If you are one who hasn't-or isn't sure, there are a few pointers that can help you start on the road to finding true love!
Love-and life-would be so much easier if there were a manual out there explaining exactly where to find it. Unfortunately, we don't have such a book. And to make matters worse, romantics tell us it pops up when we least expect it!
So where do we look for true love?
In today's world, we have a myriad of options: online dating, speed dating, blind dates, bars, parties, friends, church groups, supermarkets, libraries, and on and on. Yet, with all of these options (and many, many more), so many of us are still looking for that true love.
Love yourself
As corny as it may sound, the first step to finding true love is to love yourself. Take pride in your accomplishments! Take pride in your appearance. Develop interests and hobbies. These are the types of things that make you a well-rounded, confident person. And guys find confidence sexy! Not to mention a well-rounded person is fun and interesting to be around.
Know what you want
We all have our standards. Don't allow yourself to settle for less. If you follow the previous rule, and are a confident, well-rounded woman, you won't want to settle for less than you want-and deserve. This would only subtract from your own accomplishments and interests.
True love does not subtract from, but adds to, an already-satisfactory life.
Keep those standards high
Make sure that you not only know what you want, but make sure you set those standards high enough. Someone might seem like a great guy, but if he can't provide you with the loving relationship you deserve, why would you settle for this? If it's important to you that a guy be physically fit, don't compromise your standards for the chubby guy you feel bad for.
Be patient
This has a lot to do with the previous points. A woman who leads a self-fulfilled life with her own interests does not settle. She doesn't compromise. She doesn't give up in her search for what she truly wants. When things don't work out in one relationship, she doesn't give up on true love.
And, finally, true love requires that both partners give of themselves. Only by loving oneself, and being in a relationship that you truly want to be in, can a woman give of herself enough to find true love.
These are all small tips that work together. By following them, you can find your true love!
