THREE STEP GUIDE TO DATING AFTER A BREAK UP

June 1, 2020

Nobody thinks about breaking up during the honeymoon phase of a relationship, and yet, relationships often simply don’t work out. Whether you saw the divide coming or not, you have to move on with your life. Do not punish yourself for failing to keep your relationship together—it takes two to tango. You may be a little jaded about the end of the story but one of the thoughts you can hold onto is that the end of something is the beginning of another. It’s time for a fresh start! If you need a break from love, there’s nothing wrong with stepping back from the dating pool and choosing to focus on yourself instead. And where better to start than at a barbershop, getting a fresh look?

Here are three crucial steps to dating after a breakup:


Freshen up at the barbershop

After you’ve given yourself a couple of days to sulk at home, playing video games in your sweatpants, it’s time to pick yourself up off the floor. Take a good, hard look at yourself in the mirror and examine your appearance. How do you look? Have you been taking care of yourself? If you’re looking to rejoin the dating pool, remember that you aren’t helping your chances by letting yourself go. It’s time to clean up!

Make your way to the closest Barber Industries Concept Store to improve your physical presence for a new date. Ask for a haircut and consider a Traditional Wet Shave. If you prefer your beard to be grown out, have one of the facial hair grooming experts help you clean up your look. In fact, why not treat yourself with a new hair product or shaving brush? That way, you can bring a little bit of the barbershop back home with you.


Create an online dating profile

One of the most popular ways to meet someone today is with the help of technology. Tinder, Bumble, and other similar apps allow you to find the perfect match depending on your interests. After you’ve decided you like someone enough, you can ask them on a date! Don’t feel embarrassed about signing up for an online dating profile. Everyone on the website or application is looking to find a partner or a good time just like you.

There are plenty of online dating sites and apps for you to choose from. Keep in mind that each of them has differences in their functionality. Some of them were created for people to have fun overnight, while others boast the ability to scientifically match your profile with the perfect match. Do not feel overwhelmed by this because every app and site have one thing in common: they are easy to use. It is impossible to tell which app or website is the best. You simply need to try them out for yourself and see which one works for you.


Put some thought into your bio and photos

After creating an online dating profile, you will need to put in a description of yourself. This is the section where people will be getting an overview of who you are. Put some effort into writing your bio and make sure you’ll catch viewers’ eyes. Show them that you are serious about finding love and want to start a relationship.

During the process of customising your profile, you’ll get to choose some photos. Put yourself and your fresh look out their with a couple of high-quality images. You just got a haircut and a new look—flaunt it! Take a good selfie and make it your profile picture. For an even better profile, upload a few different photos, including a full-body shot, half-body shot, and portrait. Keep the shots recent.


Final Thoughts

There’s nothing better than building up your sense of self-esteem with a new look.
