Date yourself first. Always be growing into the person you were meant to become.
Most of the time a lot of us don’t take the time dating ourselves before entering into a relationship. We tend to bounce from relationship to relationship without ever looking at what went wrong in previous relationships or what we are ultimately looking for in a partner. Dating yourself comes down to the one simple question of, “Are you happy and okay with being by yourself?”
- Do you feel comfortable in your own skin?
- Can you laugh at your own jokes when no one else is around?
- Can you stay in on a weekend night by yourself and be completely okay with it?
- “Can you go see a movie by yourself?” I really dare you to try and see if you could do it. Most people will think it’s dumb and pointless, but I really ask you to try it out! See if you can go to a movie theatre and watch and entire film by yourself…..
Most of us waltz through life never really taking the time to find ourselves and to understand what makes us tick as human beings. As humans, we are constantly growing and our likes and dislikes are always changing as we experience new relationships with people and experiences. What you like now in your current situation, might not bode with you even a year down the road. That’s why it’s very important to constantly challenge yourself, and experience new things. By constantly challenging yourself and putting yourself in uncomfortable situations you will continually grow and become the person you were meant to become.
