New Year, New Love: Resolutions for Relationships in 2013

by Sabrina Cohen

New Year’s Eve symbolizes many things—new beginnings, new goals, and my personal favorite—making out with a complete stranger at midnight. As you reflect on all the dating you’ve done this year, consider the following MeetMoi resolutions to get you one step closer to love in 2013.

1- Let go — Some of us try to swim the sea of love tugging the weight of a heavy heart behind us. The stories we create about ourselves and others are enough to keep us anchored in solitude for all eternity. Break the chain by consciously wiping the slate clean before each and every date.

2- Open up — If you’re lucky enough to find even a hint of love, be open. It can be scary, but not as scary as letting it pass you by. No one’s ever experienced the wonder of love without being vulnerable. It’s a risk worth taking.

3- Date with integrity — Even without the universe keeping karmic tabs, it’s in your best interest to treat each interaction with respect, honesty, compassion, and completion. If you’ve made a mess with anyone in your dating past, clean it up.

4- Try something new — Date against type. Try activities and approaches you’ve never considered before. Stretching your comfort zone is a great way to explore new territory out in the dating world and within yourself. What you find may surprise you.

5- Keep the faith — Above all else, believe. Believe it’s possible. Believe you deserve it. Believe you’ll find it. And until you do, repeat resolutions 1-4 and have fun!

How will you resolve to date differently in 2013? Share your thoughts below!

  1. Western people do not understand the nuances of romance. Men & Women approach things differently.. true love is an eye-to-eye thing and no, sex is not necessary.

    • I understand Zafar… sometimes people are so focused on the details, they miss the simple beauty of connecting on a deeper level. Not sure where you’re from but there are likely many cultural differences. Still, I wouldn’t categorize all westerners in one box. Many here value romance… it just may mean different things to different people.
