Everyone is always looking for love. You want in a relationship, now, and nothing is going to stop you. You're searching high and low for the perfect person because being single is old and you're sick of being the third wheel.
With Valentine's Day just passing and today being Single Awareness Day, you're terribly aware that you have yet to find a relationship and you're valentine was your bed and Netflix. This is it, you will find someone!
Yet, that is the problem. You are desperate for love and will end up settling for someone who isn't right. No one can blame you, many of us have been there. We also know that this is the worst way to get into a relationship.
Forcing love with someone who you normally wouldn't fall for isn't healthy for a relationship. This is why you should take a minute, and stop.
Even though looking for love seems best, waiting for love is better. Here's why:
1. It is not forced.
When you wait for love to come around, it comes naturally. When you are looking at every person you meet as a potential partner, you are digging for things you like about this person. You're trying to put together a love that would not otherwise exist. Do you ever like to be forced to do something or forced to make a decision? Being forceful, even when forcing love, will not work.
2. You'll miss out on the real thing.
While you're out trying to make relationships, the real thing may be right in front of you and you'll be too busy to notice. Had you just been single a little while longer, love would have found you sooner.
3. It's an instant connection.
When love finds you, it's great. You found someone, without looking, and it's better than those fake relationships. This is love, blooming, and I guarantee you'll like it a lot better than anything else.
4. You'll appreciate the time you spent single.
A relationship is great and all, but the time you spend single in your life can teach you a lot about yourself and how you do independently. You must perfect your single-self before you get into a serious relationship. If you're running around looking for a relationship, you might not be ready for one yet.
5. You'll have no regrets.
When you find love without looking, you won't regret anything decisions or time wasted before hand. When finding a good relationship, it's hard to find things you regret with something like that in your life. No one wants regret, avoiding making that happen is the best way.
