Who should you date in 2012?

If you’ve made the decision that your tired, old relationship needs to be left behind like the rest of 2011 or have simply resolved to get your love-life on track in 2012, you may be wondering where to start. Don’t worry… we’ve got you covered. To help you get started, The Frisky has compiled a list of 18 guys you should consider dating in 2012. 

Basically, the guys on this list are all part of the same theme: think outside the box. This is one of those fundamental truths that you will always be able to recognize in other people’s dating lives but will have a tremendously hard time accepting in your own: if you keep dating the same type of guy, your relationships are going to keep turning out the same.

By that I mean, if the past 3 guys you’ve dated have been artistic, intellectual, sensitive guys… all things you are convinced you want in your perfect man… but they also lack ambition and ultimately their unstable careers and stagnant lifestyles ended up coming between you, maybe the next guy you date should have a real job. Sure, he might not write you poems, but he’ll be able to pay his rent and that’ll be a refreshing change for you.

The bottom line is, sometimes you have to step outside your comfort zone. Branch out! Don’t limit yourself just because someone doesn’t seem like your “type.” You just never know what’ll happen…

And if anyone comes across the guy who plans fun, thoughtful dates tailored to your interests… back off. He’s mine.
