So Apparently my list of 101 Mingle Tips has not solved all of the dating and social skills problems in the world. There are still a lot of lonely, poorly mannered, and socially uncomfortable people out there. So here I am. Back with more tips for you. (*New info in blue italics)
I have decided to give updates and new information on each of my original 101 Tips For Social Success With Class.
You can find the updates in blue italics at the end of the original post at the bottom of this page. Happy mingling!
This is the season for miracles, but they can actually happen at any time of the year. Miracles can even happen in your dating and social life. This brings me to my tip for today:
MINGLE TIP #83: BELIEVE IN MIRACLES (CHRISTMAS EDITION)
You may have had the worst social skills in the world up until now. People may have even seen you in social situations and felt sorry for you because you were so uncomfortable. None of that matters anymore. Today is a new day. You can start with a clean slate if you want to. There is hope.
(1) The secret to having good social skills. It may seem like it would take a miracle for you to get a date, speak publicly, or even talk to people at a party without freaking out. I am here to tell you that it can be done. Here is the secret: You have to believe.
If you believe you can improve your social skills, you can do it. This isn't rocket science. It may seem like it would take a miracle for you to have a great social life, but that isn't true. People may even see you one day with great new social skills and think that a miracle must have occurred. This is not the case. If you want to improve, just get out there and socialize (and keep reading my posts, of course). It is as simple as that.
(2) Who can improve their social skills? Anyone can learn to have above average social skills. It doesn't matter if you are eighty years old and trying to get back in the dating game or fourteen years old trying to get your first date. Anyone can do it. It just takes practice and continually putting yourself in social situations over and over again. You have it in you. So, believe in miracles. Above all else, though, believe in yourself.
Update (3) Overcome your "baggage." It makes sense that the older single people get, the more baggage they accumulate. Past scars from old relationships can be hard to get over. If you find yourself in this situation, though, it is important that you learn to move on. Don't automatically assume that new men in your life will act like the ones you knew before. Let them start with a clean slate. It's bad enough if jerks from your past mess things up for you. Just be sure you don't let them mess up your future too.
