Having Difficulty Finding the Right Person for You?
Meeting someone you like. Meeting people can be tough. Try not to be too hard on yourself if you don't meet someone when you want to. Remember:
- Being single is OK
- Everyone has different tastes and interests
- We are all attracted to people for different reasons (looks, common interests, similar ways of thinking, etc.)
Some people meet others over the Internet. If you plan to meet face-to-face with someone you met online, it is a good idea to be cautious of giving out personal details like where you live and your phone number. If you decide to meet someone you don't know, it's a good idea to meet in a public place where lots of other people are, like a movie theater, coffee shop or the mall. It might also be a good idea to have a friend nearby. Some people are not always honest and they might give you false information and might try to hurt you.
