10 Sex and Dating Resolutions for a Healthier Love Life in 2024

Sharing (s)expert-approved inspo for your manifestation board.

It’s that time of year again which means it’s time to set your New Year’s resolutions — that you’ll actually fulfill. When it comes to your sex and dating life, manifesting may seem impossible. Between taboo, shame and your ever-evolving self, diving into your true desires is a loaded task. To help you manifest your dream life, we’ve listed a few resolutions we’ll be abiding by in 2024.

Keep reading for your 2024 inspo.

Stop ghosting.

We’ve all done it at least once — but that doesn’t make it okay. Take control over your sex and dating life and instead of ghosting someone, use this template as a thought starter. Remember, the energy put out there is the energy you will receive.

Hey! I really enjoyed our date but I don’t think we’re compatible beyond friendship.

The red flag is the sign — stop waiting for it to get worse.

Often we ask for a sign as to whether a connection is healthy, or has to go. Red flags, unfortunately, ruin the fun quite abruptly which makes you want to ignore them for a temporary connection. Sadly, the red flags you ignore in the beginning will be the problems you face early on in the relationship so choose wisely.

Schedule and prioritize pleasure.

Don’t be alarmed, 35% of couples schedule sex and in our opinion, singles should, too. No need to wait for a “happy ending” — pun intended — or fairy tale love story. Orgasms boost not only your mood but self-confidence so its worth implementing into your sexual wellness routine. For tips on perfecting your wellness routine, explore our guide.

Stack date >

Scheduling or “stacking” dates into a set period of time, to maximize your chances is the latest trend we love. For example, some women stack date by scheduling three 90-minute dates into a Friday evening. We’d recommend stacking your dates into a weekend, versus a night, if you’re someone whose social battery quickly runs low. This is also great if you’d like to avoid placing all of your eggs in one basket.

Romance or no connection at all.

Some suitors may not be as romantic as you’d like, that’s just the reality of the dating pool. Where one person may think showing up to a date with flowers is the bare minimum, another may think you’re asking for too much. Ditch those people — using the anti-ghosting template, of course — and move on with those that genuinely align with you.

Frequent places where like-minded people would attend.

No more complaining about weirdos on dating apps, it’s time to meet people IRL. If you’re an artsy bae, visit more art shows, follow more of your favorite artists on socials, bookmark their next event — and actually go instead of canceling last minute. Your new bae(s) could be in attendance.

Date your friends, too.

Your friends are your community. As you date, you’ll naturally become busier and need to be more intentional about splitting your time. Get ahead of it and set time each week or month with your gals, depending on how busy you are.

Determine your nonnegotiables — and never sway from them.

Flexibility and compromise are essential in relationships. But losing yourself to appease another isn’t. To avoid losing yourself in a connection, make sure you write down your nonnegotiables and never sway from them.

Argue — with a purpose.

Conflict is inevitable, especially when attempting to merge your life with others. When conflict arises, remember that you’re on the same team, trying to find the best solution for you both.

(S)explore

Sexual exploration can be intimidating, especially with surrounding taboos. In 2023 sexual wellness influencers and brands demanded attention leading to a number of online communities dedicated to sex-positivity.

Visit a sex shop and cop a new sex toy or tune into a sex podcast and dive into their community. Despite the taboo, there’s a world of community surrounding sexual wellness so f-ck your fears, and allow yourself to be empowered sexually.
