Date Someone Who Is Unapologetically Themselves

Think about how rare it is that you exist. If one of your ancestors had not met each other, the possibility of you may have never happened.

Remember the chance of you existing is so extraordinary and you deserve someone equally extraordinary in your life and nothing less.

Where you are in life is a combination of all the choices you have made so far. Honestly, if you think about it, it all comes down to chance.

One chance meeting and what you choose to do with that can change the course of your whole life. And that is why it is so important to grab that opportunity or let go, because you are so special and your life deserves to be exceptional.

You deserve someone equally great to love in your life. You don’t want to settle for anyone less.

When it comes to love, it is also about the chances you take or the choices you do not make.

You want someone to love you for exactly who you are, the good and the bad, the whole package. Therefore, you have to be able to accept someone for everything they are.

You have to date someone who is so unapologetically themselves because you are the same.

You want to be loved for the way you are but sometimes, it is hard for you to accept the flaws in others. You need to realize that when you expect someone else to accept you for everything, you are expecting them to accept your flaws and you have to accept theirs too.

And to be in a grown-up relationship, you have to be able to give in return what you expect.

If you want someone to love you for who you are, you have to be able to love them for who they are. You have to accept the good and the bad, the whole package.

You don’t ever want to waste your time acting. You don’t want to be fake and you don’t want them to ever pretend. When you date someone long-term, there needs to be honesty and transparency, otherwise it is not going to work.

Pretense might work at first, but everyone gets tired of pretending at some point. Everyone’s true colors will eventually show, and that’s when you know. Can you accept someone? Can they accept you?

You want to date someone who is unapologetically themselves because they are truthful about who they are and proud of it.

It is important to date someone who is unapologetically themselves because you know from the beginning what you are getting yourself into and you know they will stick around when they say they will.

The beauty in dating someone unapologetically themselves is that when they say they will do something, they will do it, because nowadays people lie too much and most of us have dealt with that in our pasts.

You want to date someone who is unapologetically themselves because you know what you want in life and you will not settle for anything less than what you deserve.

You will only get so many chances in life to make or break it, and when it comes to love, you want to take the right chances and make the right choices because life is too short.

You don’t want to waste your love and your life on someone who is anything less.

So, when you meet someone who is unapologetically themselves, you need to grab that moment in time, because you deserve the most beautiful love.

Being able to love each other for just the way you are is the basis of all strong lasting relationships. So be honest with yourself from the beginning and be smart.

Everything comes down to chance, and what kind of love you have in your life depends on the choice you make.

Date someone who is unapologetically themselves, because you are unapologetically yourself.
