Can you just hang out with yourself, laugh and be happy? Just try it. If you’re not happy being alone you’ll never be happy when you’re in a relationship. I wasn’t happy in the beginning of college I remember. I did not know what I wanted to do with my life and I thought that getting a girlfriend would solve all my problems and make me happy. Well, I got into a relationship and it was great at first, but at about the year mark I realized I wasn’t truly happy inside. I was bottling everything up and acting out in anger towards others because I did not know how to communicate effectively. That relationship eventually ended. I was very thankful for that experience. I met my next serious girlfriend months later.
Again, not really doing any inner work with myself, I fell into the same rut of being unhappy at about a year into the relationship. Well that ended, and here I am today and can finally say I really enjoy being by myself and am truly happy with being by myself, and am okay with being single. I have dated a few women since my last relationship, but nothing serious yet. I realized that I needed to be alone in order to find out what I really wanted in another person and what I want out of life.
You’ll know when you are happy being alone. It’s a feeling inside that I can’t describe. You’ll soon realize that you don’t need another person to complete your life, you should be already completed when you meet a woman you want to get into a relationship with. A woman should complement your life, not complete it.
