It’s Never Too Late to Find Love

Ray Alyssa Rothman shares some ideas to consider that may help open the door to finding that special someone.

Valentine’s Day is in the books, and for many singles it can be a holiday that brings a mix of emotions, especially if they don’t have that special someone in their life. Yet it’s never too late to find that romantic relationship and avoid the feelings of loneliness and isolation that being single can evoke.

Here are some ideas to consider that may help open the door to finding that special someone:
* Consider visiting one of the many Atlanta parks for a walk or perhaps a picnic with friends. An added benefit is that being outside can boost your mood!
* Sign up for a class to explore a new pursuit, such as cooking, meditation, or a new language.
* Visit a local library or bookstore, peruse the self-help section, and pinpoint a book that may assist you with personal growth and self-discovery.
* Write or journal about your feelings, which may help you to identify your emotions and understand yourself a bit better.
* Explore one of Atlanta’s many cultural offerings, so plan to visit a museum, go to a live performance.
* Indulge your foodie desires at one of our city’s delicious destinations.

You can do any of these activities by yourself but consider connecting with the Atlanta Jewish community by attending a synagogue event, participating in Jewish singles groups, or joining other social clubs to build meaningful connections.

Volunteering and working in the community are also great ways to make connections with others, as your presence might help others as well as potentially meeting other singles you may click with.

Navigating Valentine’s Day or any holiday as an unattached Jewish single brings its own set of challenges and opportunities. Hopefully these helpful tips will guide you to finding love.
