25 quotes that show you why being single isn’t a bad thing.

The other day I was scrolling through facebook and looking at random blog posts and articles and I saw 3 or 4 articles in a row talking about being single and sad. They talked about how to reel in the perfect guy, how to cope with being single, how to make sure you make the right impression and how to give off signs that you’re open and available.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t understand why people say that you have to love yourself before you love someone else for a long time. But, when you’re happy with who you are and the life you live, you have a much more solid base walking into a relationship when you’re ready. And the other thing is that just because there’s someone around that you COULD date, doesn’t mean you should.

Staying single isn’t a bad choice.
