Relationship Goals You Should Be Aiming For In 2017

This year, we read and saw a lot of posts and pictures about relationship goals on social media that made us aim for the “almost impossible”. Why do we say almost impossible? Well, we can’t all have matching luxury cars, be kissing on a cliff somewhere exotic, or be proposed to with an entire flash mob dancing to the tune of our couple song.

Realistic Goals That Make Relationships Strong And Happy

Let’s fess up to the fact that the relationship goals we see floating around on social media don’t really do much to make our relationship strong and happy. They can be temporary joys, but nothing else. Instead of aiming for fantasies, we should all be aiming for the following realistic goals for couples in 2017:

1. A New Experience, Once A Month

Did you know that when a couple shares a new and positive experience together, their bond is strengthened? When a couple tries something new together, they create shared experiences which stimulate excitement, closeness and “the spark”. Here are a few examples of new experiences that a couple can do together:

  • Visit a new city
  • Check out a new restaurant
  • Take salsa classes
  • Learn how to spearfish

It doesn’t matter what the activity is as long as it is something new and exciting for the couple.

2. Remind Yourselves What You Love About Each Other

It’s easy to focus on the negative aspects of your partner when you’re angry or annoyed, but we have to remember that focusing on the negative will not strengthen our relationship. What can, however, is focusing on what we love most about our partner. In fact, even if we are not mad or annoyed, thinking about why you fell in love with the person can be a great practice.

3. Consistent Date Nights

We all get busy most of the time, but next year, you can list down “Friday Night, Date Night” as one of your relationship goals. It has to be mandatory so both of you in the relationship can find time to be alone together.

4. Be More Appreciative

We should all make a habit out of showing our partner how we appreciate them. We could do that through small gifts, our gestures and our words. Saying “thank you” to our partner will mean a lot to them.

These four examples of relationship goals are very practical and do-able, and they are the stuff that will help make our relationship last longer and stronger next year and the years to come. For more dating tips, check out other posts from our blog.

AnastasiaDate Search Advice: Why You Should Let Love Go In 2017

Have you ever heard this advice before: “stop looking for love and see how easily you will find it”? It doesn’t have to be the same exact words, but you probably know what we’re talking about.

It’s the same advice people give when you’re trying too hard to do something – lay off a little and just let it happen naturally. But, when it comes to love, is there any truth to letting it find you naturally without doing anything or without trying? Here’s some AnastasiaDate Search advice for you before New Year.

AnastasiaDate Search Advice: Let Love Come To You Or Not?

The answer will be based on the interpretation of this advice. There are two possible interpretations that people make when they hear “let it happen naturally” or “let love come to you”:

Interpretation #1

“Love will find me even when I don’t do anything.” And, by “don’t do anything”, they really mean it. They don’t improve themselves, grow or learn. They just go through the motions of life, waiting for that special someone to appear out of nowhere.

The people who interpret the advice this way CAN find love, but it will take years because, as time passes by, they’ll grow weary, needy, less confident and bitter. Well, every year that they don’t find love, that is.

They’re not doing anything else while they’re waiting so instead of being productive and growing as a person, their attention is shifted towards finding a relationship.

People who interpret this advice as a chance to do absolutely nothing with their time, have the tendency to settle too.

Interpretation #2

On the other hand, there will be people who will say: “I’m going to focus my energy on improving or loving myself, first, while I am waiting.” Do you see how different these two interpretations are?

If you translate the advice based on interpretation two, you’ll likely meet the partner you want because you’ll naturally attract people when you’re constantly improving yourself.

But, how? As you improve and learn to love yourself, your confidence grows, you know your worth, and you’re more fulfilled as a person.

Wouldn’t you want to be with someone who is confident and fulfilled? Of course, you do. We all do, which is why it’s easier for the person who interprets the advice the second why to get dates and find love “without doing anything”.

Remember that New Year is just around the corner. If you’ve been let down by too many failed dates, don’t give up. Maybe you should focus on yourself for a change. Just remember that you should do something positive with your time.

If your energy is positive and you’re coming from a place of happiness, you’ll find the love you deserve, even if it is the new year or not.

That’s our AnastasiaDate search advice. We have plenty of other relationship and dating tips on our blog so make sure you check those out. Don’t forget to visit to meet ladies who are looking for an online date this New Year.
