Stop Complaining About Being Single

Written by on August 26, 2015

STOP complaining about being single.


The next potential partner you will meet is going to LOVE the fact that you are single. And AVAILABLE.

The same goes for you meeting them and they happen to be single.

Being single is an ASSET, not a liability to complain about or a flaw to apologize for.

Amazing you + wanting a relationship + powerfully available = ASSET (and awesome)
Amazing you + wanting a relationship + complaining/apologizing = LIABILITY (and lame)

I get that it’s frustrating when you’ve been without a partner for a while and you really want one. But one of the quickest ways to make yourself more attractive is to reframe your situation into one that has you feeling empowered and open, not resistant and whiny.

Desire what you want and make sure you’re living a life that you love, no matter who is or isn’t in it.

Don’t get in your own way. You’re closer and more ready than you think you are.
