Single & Available? Share It With Your Friends

Many people know exactly what they want from their careers and have a clearly defined set of goals. They aren't afraid to approach the bossman for a promotion or when they are seeking new challenges to expand their skill set. They create vision boards (even if they are only in the minds) of where they want to be in five years.

But when it comes to finding a partner, so many of us leave it to chance. What? If you want to turn your dating life around, you're going to have to invest a bit of time and effort.

The first and the easiest step is to tell people in your circle that you are on the market and looking for that special someone. Tell friends, coworkers, hairdressers and even the neighbors. Spread the word.

I'm not telling you to make a big deal of it or that your single status should be the only thing you discuss. Bring it up casually in the conversation. Don't shy away from the topic.

If you keep it secret, chances are they won't think of you when someone else less shy brings it up in conversation.

We're not peacocks with plumes and special mating dances to know when we are available. So, throw it out there into the winds and see how fate will bring it back to you.
