Sex & the Single Woman: New Year, New Resolutions

I think I am one of the only people in the world who actually enjoys making resolutions. Maybe it’s because I love fresh starts, maybe because I don’t beat myself up too hard if I fail. Either way, this is my time of year.

I looked at my dating resolutions for 2010 and am proud to say that was pretty good about sticking with #1 and #3. #2, not so much. I have come to terms with the fact that I will always overanalyze everything.

But since it is the time for resolutions, here is what I am aiming for in 2011:

1. Stop being a control freak. I am starting to be more confident when it comes to making relationships happen, which I think is a good thing. However, I also need to be mindful that I don’t have control over some things. This is something that I don’t always like admitting, but there is no time like the present to change that.

2. Stop settling. I settle way too easy. It’s as simple as that. I know I deserve better than what I allow myself, so this year I want to wait for only the best opportunities.

3. Figure out what I want, and go for it! This is a combination of #1 and #2. While I can’t control everything, I do need to decide what I want and not stop until I get it. This means not settling for anything less than I deserve.

What are your resolutions for 2011?
