If the holidays had you wondering where your dream person is hiding, you're not alone. According to Match.com online dating sites are at their busiest between Dec. 26 and Feb. 14. The holidays are tough, so it makes sense that you'd want to seek someone out to help carry the load in life moving forward! If you're looking to up your dating life in 2020, then you're going to have to let fo of some pesky habits. This goes both wayโ€”let go of these habits and let go of people who display these habits.

Non-communication- If the person you're dating is a terrible tester, nix them. Communication is super important in any relationship, so why deal with a date who only sends you memes? You deserve more! The same goes for you. If you're keeping someone on a leash with minimal communication just because you're bored or want to keep them around, be real with yourself and let that person go!

Ghosting- Stop ghosting in 2020! It's rude and leaves dates wondering what the hell happened. Imagine if you met someone you liked and they ghosted you. Sucks, right? Take some time to identify why you ghost. Is it out of fear? Is it because you just don't care? Whatever the case, it doesn't take much to reach out to someone and let them know you're not interested. A quick text is sometimes all it takes. If you're being ghosted, delete that person's number from your phone. You don't have to beg anyone for your attention.

Playing Games- You're not seven anymore! It's time to stop playing games when it comes to your dating life. Reply to texts when you can, rather than waiting a certain amount of time. Healthy communication is the name of the game in 2020. If there's a person in your life who's playing mind games with you, let them go and get ready to up your dating life.

You deserve someone who's excited about you, wants to see you, and text you! Get in line with love in 2020.
