While I am not sure about other resolutions you want to keep (or not), there's no harm making a few to improve your dating game this year. If you're single and have decided to mingle this year, it's only fair if you act out on your game plan early this year.
Here are 5 important dating resolutions that can help you with your dating game in 2019. If you decide to keep them, that is.(1) Give Up Your 'Fuckboi' Title
If you're single and you attract women through your machismo and the fuckboi culture, maybe it's time to try another route because honestly, women just want straightforward equations and they will not settle for meandering ties and manipulations anymore. True story! So, if you're used to spinning yarns about your life and getting women in bed one after the other, slow down a bit and try dating a healthier way. Maybe sleeping around can be balanced with a healthy dating routine where you spend enough time getting to know someone genuinely? Who knows what you may find!

In case you've been trying really hard to figure a way to get out of a toxic relationship or have fallen out of love with someone, then this is the year you wiggle your way out of that. Maybe have an honest talk about how you feel with the person and leave on a good note? It's important to leave giving absolute closure to something. Once you're done with that, the world's your playground this year!
This one can be a first, after maybe 5 years? Dating apps don't give us a chance to explore the world a little more organically. You could be sitting at home, sipping your coffee and swiping too many rights at one go. It's a marketed business and sometimes it all seems like a set-up. Maybe, for your own tryst to find the 'right person', get out and get moving and give them dating apps a break? Head to a bar or a party or even a play. Who knows where and how you meet someone. It'll probably be different, in a good way to ask someone out on a date, away from your phone screen!

If you've been going after a 'type' and it hasn't worked out well for you in the past, maybe it's time to break that pattern and go for someone who isn't your type at all. Whatever your type is, leave that this year. If you're just looking to casually date this year then I reckon go for someone who is a wee bit different and see what lies there. You might find something you like and you may hit it off rather well with her!

While the freedom to do what you feel like is great, there are some things you really need to understand before you imply that to your lifestyle. Consent, for example, is rather important and has always been and it's not just for this year. But because there is more prevalence about understanding consent now, it's advisable to thoroughly understand it. When a girl says 'NO' to going out with you or to performing a sexual act or to holding your hand, respect it and don't persist further. It's that simple. Trust me, once you understand what they truly want, it becomes a lot easier to court them and it's a lot of fun too. 2019 is not the year you play any sort of games TBH.
