Oh Taurus, our sweet stubborn earth sign. You’re ruled by Venus which makes you an expert on romance, beauty and pleasure, and you live your life with those things very high on your list of priorities. You love love, and we love you for that. This is why being single might feel extra frustrating for you when compared to other zodiac signs. You know that you’d be an amazing partner to someone (or someones!) so why aren’t you finding the one? It’s not that everyone worth dating is already taken, it might be that you’re getting in your own way. So here are five dating tips to keep in your back pocket and keep you happy even when you’re single!
1. Stay Present
You fall in love fast and hard, and that’s one of the things that’s beautiful about you! But dating will get a lot easier if you stop future tripping and live in the moment. Going straight from swiping right to fantasizing about your wedding sets you up for a first date with way too many expectations. If it’s impossible to shake the daydream, try treating the date like a mindfulness exercise. Look at the person as if they are an open book of possibilities and let them—not your imagination—fill in the blanks.
