Know What You Want

Relationships – Activity: Know what you want

Whether you are already in a relationship, or looking for someone special, it’s important to know what you want.

Looking for someone special?

Begin by listing the top qualities you are looking for, then develop those qualities in yourself!

Consider what is important to you in these areas:

Mental(education, smarts) Physical(health, attributes) Emotional(romance, maturity, conflicts)
Spiritual (religion) Purpose (goals) Character (values)
Career (work) Financial (money) Recreational (leisure, entertainment, travel)
Relationships(family, children, appreciation, decisions) Social (friends, communication) Organizational (home, food)

Next get out and meet people:

  • Try activities that interest you
  • Tell friends and family you are looking
  • Attend church
  • Take a class
  • Online singles sites

A SMART Goal to meet someone: I will go someplace new and start a conversation with a new person who interests me at least once a week
