If you flipped a coin, then you'd get the proportion of people who are married in the UK. If you're on the other side of that coin, then you'll understand the struggles of sifting through the dating pool.

While it can frustrating to go on first date after first date, don't lose hope. With some savvy, you can make all that time worth it.

Here's the ultimate dating guide that'll land you your ideal partner in the modern dating world.

Be Clear About What You Want

Chances are, you want to find a lifelong partner who's ideal for you. You're done dating around and having casual flings.

So make sure you're clear about this in your dating profile.

Risqué and sexy pictures are completely fine to put up and it's your prerogative to do so. But the truth is, this will attract the men who want to only hook up.

Remember, you want to get quality over quantity. While sexy pictures will surely garner you more attention from men, chances are, you'll be deleting most of those messages since all they want to do is have a little fun, nothing else.

So choose some more wholesome pictures and make sure to fill out your profile with exactly what you want. Make it crystal clear that you're not into hook-ups, but instead, something more serious.

Have Some Standards and Stick to Them

You deserve to date men that fit your standards and morals. Of course, it's very easy to lie on online dating profiles, so you may end up on dates with people who aren't quite what you expect. And not in a good way either.

If a man you meet up with doesn't fit your standards, it's ok to cross him off your list. You don't owe it to him to stick it out and see if you mesh, especially if he has some questionable beliefs and he doesn't treat you the way you want and deserve.

Be Yourself

Many women get this notion that men want a certain type of woman. While it may be true for some men, it's certainly not true of all of them.

Even if you do manage to put on a front to attract a certain guy, will it be worth it in the end when he truly gets to know you and finds out you don't mesh? You'll most likely part ways at that point and you'll be back where you started.

It's much better to go in with all your cards laid out. If you have confidence in yourself, then you'll attract the right men to you. Plus, they'll love how sure you are of yourself!

Use This Dating Guide for Success

Now that you have a brief dating guide under your belt, the next thing is to put it into practice!

While it may be scary to dive into the dating pool again, you never know what you'll find. It may take a few trials and errors, but if you can conquer your fears, then you just might be rewarded with a partner for life!
