As the days of my college life passed by, I couldn’t help but feel a little left out. All my friends were either in relationships or going on dates, and I was the only single one in the group. I longed for someone to share my life with, to cuddle with on cold nights and to have silly inside jokes with.
But the question was, how do I get a boyfriend? I wasn’t the type to just go up to a guy and ask him out, I needed a plan.
Step one: Work on myself
I knew that before I could attract someone else, I needed to work on myself. I started by taking care of my physical appearance – I went to the gym regularly, got a new haircut, and started dressing in a way that made me feel confident. I also worked on my mental and emotional well-being by practicing self-love and positivity.
Step two: Put myself out there
I realized that I won’t find a boyfriend by sitting in my room all day. So, I made an effort to go out more, whether it was to attend events, join clubs, or just hang out with friends. I also started using dating apps to widen my pool of potential suitors.
Step three: Be open to new experiences
I made a conscious effort to say yes to new experiences and opportunities that came my way. I attended concerts, tried new restaurants, and even went on a solo trip. Not only did it help me discover new things, but it also made me more approachable and interesting to potential dates.
Step four: Be confident and friendly
I realized that confidence is key when it comes to attracting a potential partner. I started being more outgoing and friendly, striking up conversations with strangers and being open to meeting new people. This not only boosted my confidence but also opened up new possibilities.
Step five: Be true to myself
While trying to attract a boyfriend, I made sure to stay true to myself. I didn’t want to pretend to be someone I’m not just to impress someone else. I stayed true to my values, interests, and beliefs, and ultimately, that’s what made me stand out and attract the right person.
Step six: Be patient
As they say, good things come to those who wait. I knew that finding the right person takes time, and I didn’t want to rush into anything just for the sake of having a boyfriend. So, I reminded myself to be patient and trust the process.
And just when I least expected it, it happened. I met a guy through a mutual friend and we hit it off instantly. He was kind, funny, and shared similar interests as me. We started dating and before I knew it, he became my boyfriend.
Looking back, I realized that the key to getting a boyfriend was not about finding the perfect strategy or following a set of rules. It was about being myself, being open to new experiences, and having the patience to wait for the right person to come along. And in the end, it was all worth it because I found someone who loves and accepts me for who I am.
