Mindful Dating: Finding the Perfect Match in a Busy World

Although the modern world offers a lot of convenience, sometimes it comes at a cost — from work to email, to messages piling up, we have a million things on our minds all the time. With all of this stress, it can be hard to take time for mindful dating. But if you're a mindful person — the type of person who takes a moment for deep breathing when things get tough — you understand how important it is to engage consciously with all aspects of your life, rather than just letting things happen. You know that you deserve to live consciously and mindfully, and dating should be no exception.

Find Like-minded Partners With Our Personality Test

Here at EliteSingles, we understand how valuable your time is. With so much on your plate, the last thing you want to do is spend hours scrolling through potential dates with no idea how compatible you'd be — and luckily, thanks to our personality test, you don't have to wonder. Thousands of mindful singles fall in love through EliteSingles every month.

Our personality test, which members take as soon as they sign up for the service, is based on a psychological concept called the Big Five Model of Personality. This concept, first developed in the 1990s, examines how closely a given individual matches five main personality traits: extroversion, agreeableness, openness, neuroticism, and conscientiousness. By examining these aspects of each person's personality, EliteSingles can make sure to match you with someone who shares your values — find a partner who cares about taking a moment to pause, take a breath, and connect with you, even when things are hectic.

The Importance of Mindful Dating

You have enough stress in your life — you shouldn't have to experience it with dating, too. Mindful dating has innumerable benefits, both for you and your partner. Taking the time to connect with your emotions and clearly express your values means that you will find relationships more fulfilling, purposeful, and rewarding.

Backed by Science

According to the American Psychological Association (APA), numerous studies have shown that mindfulness offers clear benefits. People who practice mindfulness are less likely to ruminate on distressing thoughts or display emotional volatility. They have better focus, a stronger working memory, and improved self-awareness. While all of these things are beneficial to a relationship, the APA specifically reports empirical evidence that mindful dating leads to relationship satisfaction — mindful singles are better able to communicate their emotions to a partner, and can more easily deal with conflict when it arises. Our mindful dating app can help make sure that you find someone just as mindful and open as you. 

Let Us Help You Find Your Perfect Match

You're a mindful person, but it can still be draining to try and find someone you're compatible with. Matchmaking is never easy, which is why EliteSingles is here to help take the guesswork out of your dating life. In addition to our personality test, we offer a refined matchmaking service that connects you to a compatible future partner.

Mindful dating means thinking about your life and knowing what's important to you. At EliteSingles, we consider demographic data from age and gender to profession and level of education, ensuring that we only suggest people you might really be interested in. We ask all of our members a number of questions vital to the success of long-term relationships. Not only does this ensure that you're being mindful about what you want, but it means that your future partner will have clear ideas about what they want, too. EliteSingles is the perfect fit for people who are serious about finding a partner. If you're ready to give it a try, register today to begin searching for your perfect match.

Outsource the Stress

Why take on more stress than necessary? At EliteSingles, we worry so that you don't have to. We are an incredibly safe and secure website, providing profile quality checks daily to ensure that you are always interacting with real people. We remove the profiles of anyone who doesn't take the dating experience seriously. This means that you don't have to worry about vetting each potential date before you even know if you're compatible — simply focus on what you want, and we'll take care of the rest. 

If you're looking for a mindful dating app that can fit easily into your life, EliteSingles is an app with a difference. Even if you're constantly on the go, our app can travel with you. If you prefer to sit at your computer to browse our website, that works too — all your data is synced, making it easy for you to take a few minutes for yourself even if you're busy. The modern world can make dating difficult, but you don't have to handle it alone. By outsourcing some of the stress, you can make technology work for you, rather than against you. Don't leave something as important as dating up to chance — once you know what you want, we can help you find it.

Using a simple and transparent dating site is thus imperative. This is exactly why we provide our users with expert support in the form of in-depth dating advice articles, written by our in-house specialists. Not sure how to maximize your dating profile? Want to learn how to take the best profile photo? These questions and many more are all tackled in our accessible online publication, EliteSingles Magazine.

Emphasize Your Values

It can be all too easy to overlook the things that are important to you. Sometimes it seems easier to settle for less, especially if you're stressed and busy. But dating is one area of your life where it's vital to be conscious of and vocal about what you want. Spend some time thinking about the things that are really important to you — not only will this help you find more fulfilling relationships, it will help you be more openminded about the things you aren't as sure about. If you're positive about what's important to you, it will be easier to recognize the things that don't matter as much as you thought. 

If you value education as well as mindfulness, for example, EliteSingles might be the perfect place for you — 85% of our members are highly educated and many are professionals. You don't ever have to settle for less. By taking a little time to think about what you really want out of a relationship, you'll be significantly more likely to connect with someone who cares about the same things as you.

Take a Deep Breath

We get it — dating can be overwhelming. While it's easy to get caught up worrying about other people, don't forget to take a little time to think about yourself. Practicing mindfulness techniques such as yoga, deep breathing, and meditation can make a real difference in how you view the world, helping you navigate both your professional and personal life with greater ease. The APA reports that practicing mindfulness has a positive impact on the middle prefrontal lobe of the brain — the area that controls morality, insight, and intuition. People who take the time to be mindful tend to get sick less often, stress less frequently, and process information more quickly. In fact, according to a Harvard study, it's possible that frequent meditation could even help lower your blood pressure. 

All of these things are hugely beneficial, not just for dating, but for your entire life. It's vital to take time for yourself so that you can enjoy greater life fulfillment, be more productive, and interact with the world in a more conscious and positive way. Dating is just one area of your life that benefits from your mindfulness practice. If you're ready to take the plunge and go after what you want, EliteSingles is ready to help.
