When you focus on keeping yourself happy, it will keep your life balanced and make you a more interesting person when you do meet someone special.
Remember that first impressions aren't always reliable.
Or maybe your dating history consists only of short, abrupt relationships where you or your partner gets bored too soon, and you don't know how to make a relationship last.
You could be attracted to the wrong type of person or keep making the same bad choices over and over, due to an unresolved issue from your past.
Finding the right romantic partner is often a difficult journey, for several reasons.
Perhaps you grew up in a household where there was no role model of a solid, healthy relationship and you doubt that such a thing even exists.
Don’t make your search for a relationship the center of your life.
Concentrate on activities you enjoy, your career, health, and relationships with family and friends.
Fact: While there are health benefits that come with being in a healthy relationship, many people can be just as happy and fulfilled without being part of a couple.
Despite the stigma in some social circles that accompanies being single, it’s important not to enter a relationship just to “fit in.” Being alone and being lonely are not the same thing.
It's also important to recognize that relationships are never perfect and always require lots of work, compromise, and a willingness to resolve conflict in a positive way.
To find and build any relationship worth keeping, you may need to start by re-assessing some of your misconceptions about dating and relationships that can prevent you from finding lasting love: It’s better to have a bad relationship than no relationship.
That’s why you may want to start by re-assessing your beliefs and expectations about love—especially if you’ve been burned repeatedly or have a poor track record when it comes to dating.
