I think it is important for everyone, for a period in their ADULT lives, to "do them". You know... like the rappers/people in jersey shore say... "imma go do me!"
You can think you know who you are even though you are always dating someone. But sometimes, you really don't know. Trust me, I have seen FIRST hand people trying to explain this to me. But really, is that really you? How would you even know?
You are never completely free to explore your feelings and desires. That picture above really sums it up for me. You need to find your own happiness. From withing. Do you, and eventually - it will come.
Everyone feels the pressures to be in a relationship. Especially when everyone around you is dating. Bleh. I know I feel it.
So I am telling you to let go of that pressure, and let life happen. Figure out exactly who you are. Learn to love that person... and the rest will follow.
Guaranteed, the relationships that follow will be the best you've ever had. Because when you know deep down who you are, and love who you are, you are going to make sure that you find someone who compliments that PERFECTLY. We all want prince charming (or princess leia for the guys reading this), this is a FOOL PROOF way to find him/her!
Being single does NOT mean you're weak, or that something is wrong with you. It actually kind of means the opposite. It means you are strong enough to wait for someone who you really deserve. Someone who makes you feel good from the inside out. Someone you love to spend time with, and laugh, and just... be YOU around.
And I am not saying the exception doesn't exist either. Sometimes you need someone to help find you. Of course :) This is just one way (a refreshing way) to look at it. And I feel like some people really NEED to hear this!
