They will say whatever they think you want to hear in that moment. Basically, whatever shuts you up.
Don’t settle for the ordinary date. Don’t settle for dates that send you home crying. Settle for the extraordinary. For the dates that make you blush in happiness. For the dates that send you smiling from ear to ear. Settle for the dates that make you dream impossible things. That make you believe in love again
There are so many bland and boring things we experience on this earth. And intertwining our soul with another person shouldn’t be one of them.
You have expectations—for yourself, for your future lover, for life—that you never had before.
A relationship that doesn’t make you feel adored or loved. We all deserve someone who gives us every reason to believe in ourselves and make us realize how lovable we are.
I refuse to settle for something that won’t fulfill just because I feel lonely or sad or empty. I refuse to take all of my loneliness and put it on another person’s back. I refuse to settle for a relationship that I don’t even really want.
Don’t settle. Don’t settle even if he or she seems perfect to you on paper. Don’t settle for someone just because they are gorgeous. Don’t settle for anything less than what your gut is telling you. Don’t settle for the rich, when their hearts don’t match the amount of money they make. Don’t settle for anyone who doesn’t make your heart feel held.
Date someone who loves you enough to answer your questions, to open up when you ask, and to give you a little extra assurance when you’re feeling slightly insecure. No it’s not too much to ask, it’s simply honesty. And trust me, the man who loves you never wants you to feel like there’s a hidden reserve of love he’s holding back.
