Debt-Free and Financially Fit

Are you truly who they say you are? It’s a question that may cross your mind. You’ve convinced yourself that you have it all together: attractiveness, education, a great personality, and a well-traveled nature. You possess numerous qualities that make you an appealing prospect for dating. After each failed relationship, your “nice” friend reassures you, saying, “It’s not you, it’s them…” So why are you still single? I’m here to help you understand the reasons and show you how to break free from the mindset of bad luck and the illusion of being content alone.

Let’s start with some facts. Did you know that according to the U.S. Census, 110.6 million unmarried people over the age of 18 exist? That accounts for 45.2 percent of the American adult population. Yet, finding a quality date seems elusive. So, where are all these single people? The truth is, there are numerous factors to consider, and the love of your life may not be within your zip code or area code. Before updating your resume and packing your belongings to move to a city recommended by a search engine’s “Best Cities in America for Singles” list, take a moment to relax.

Ask yourself a few questions and search your heart for honest answers. Jot down your responses, as we’ll refer back to them shortly:

  1. Am I truly ready for a relationship?
  2. Why didn’t my last relationship work?
  3. What do I genuinely desire in a partner?
  4. What are my deal breakers?
  5. Would I be willing to relocate for the right opportunity?

Remember, you’re not alone in this journey. We all know someone who stayed in the wrong relationship for far too long or seemed to jump into a new relationship every other week. Whichever extreme you’ve witnessed, neither is healthy. If you’ve never encountered such situations, nice to meet you! Personally, after three failed engagements, I knew I had to approach the next relationship differently. Surprisingly, I found love where I least expected it. It’s crucial to be honest with ourselves and embrace realism. Many people have exceedingly high standards, often believing that the right person doesn’t exist, or they pursue manufactured personas that aren’t sustainable. On the other hand, having relatively low standards might lead you to accept anyone who shows interest and offers a compliment. We’ve all heard it before, but it bears repeating: there’s no such thing as a perfect person. The key is finding someone who is imperfectly perfect for you.

Now, tell a friend, stay tuned, and subscribe to learn how to make your next dating experience a different one!
