Falling In Love With The Idea Of Being In Love

I’ve been riding the single train for a while and I often think about how it would feel to be in a relationship. I’m not a relationship type of girl, only because I like to do what I want when I want. I love, love and seeing other people in love and enjoying life makes me happy. Seeing a beautiful couple strolling down the street being all lovey-dovey is cute to me. The problem is I can’t watch those happy couples without feeling like I’m missing out on something.


Fantasizing about what life would be like when I find the “one” that I want to spend the rest of my life with and can’t wait to see everyday. Being in that sort of lala-land will make you feel like when you finally get in a relationship that everything will be perfect. First thing that I think is worth mentioning is, if you’re not happy alone you won’t be happy with someone. That’s just the way it works, you have to fall in love with you before someone else can. Second, I already set unreal expectations for my future partner that they’ll never live up to.


If you’re single like me, don’t focus so much on when you’ll find someone. Focus on loving yourself right and someone will come along to enhance that. Don’t let someone come along and take advantage of your vulnerability. ***They will do that to you*** Another thing is we’re always so busy looking for what we think we want, that we don’t see what’s really important. Life can have a funny way of forcing you to get it together and look at your life for what it is. Take off the rose-colored lenses and enjoy what is right in front of you, even if it’s just you.


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my blog. I’m planning some things and I can’t wait to share them with you. I just want to be a little more prepared before I start blabbing. Anyway see you Wednesday!
