Sex & the Single Woman: New Year, New Rules

Okay, ladies. It’s time for an overhaul.

Looking back on 2009, the dating element of my life was so-so. There were definitely some ups, but also some downs. It happens. My goal for 2010 is to boost the number of “up” moments and to ultimately be a happier person.

Most of the guys I dated were friends or people who I met through friends. This is a great way to meet people, but it’s a red flag for me. I am admittedly not an outgoing person when it comes to introducing myself. Resolution #1: go out of my way to meet new people.

Another flaw I have found is that I analyze everything. While this can be a good thing, I think that sometimes I overanalyze situations. Resolution #2: Relax and just go with the flow.

The third problem I have is situational. I like my comfort zone. There is nothing wrong with staying in some nights, but at the same time I don’t know if I will meet Mr. Right by keeping my tush parked in front of Lost reruns. Resolution #3: Venture out to new places to meet new people.

I love the new year because it really does give everyone a chance to start fresh. I look forward to seeing what these next 12 months have in store.

What about you–what are your dating resolutions for 2010?
