Ah, the single life. No worries, no complications, no limitations. What more could anyone ask for? The concept of being 'single' I feel like always has a dark cloud hanging over it. Soooo many people complain and joke about being 'forever alone' or sometimes 'unlovable' which really can start to make you believe that it is true.

Okay, well I have two things for you.

1. That's not true at all.

2. Embrace the single life now, you have your whole life to be married.

In my past relationships (this may not be the case with you but still is probably relatable) my partner would get upset if I was hanging out with so and so, doing this and that, or the need for that unofficial 'permission' in order to do something. It's kind of a weird concept to explain, but I think you might have an idea what I'm talking about. (If you don't let me know so I can elaborate more in the comments!) There is no need to tell someone that you're doing something or have them limit your freedom because they might get 'upset' or you'll get scared that it will start a fight…and it just gets complicated from there. You should be able to do what you want, and being single, lets you have just that.

And if you have never had a relationship before, there is still nothing to sweat about. Just be you, and not anyone else, and the right people will come into your life. Plus God has a plan for you, and maybe he doesn't want you in a relationship yet for a certain reason you may or may not understand.

But anyways, I feel like the concept of being single is so frowned upon and it really bothers me. You can literally do whatever you want with whoever you want with none of that relationship drama BS. Plus, it can be a great time to find yourself and discover who you are, and who you are meant to be in this world.

Being single is a beautiful thing. It is the time where you live it up the most and can go a little crazy before settling down. When the time is right, you'll know. But for now, just sit back and relax, and don't stress about being forever alone, because you won't. God works in mysterious ways, and he will bring the right person into your life when the time is right.

Why You Should Stop Chasing Him

You deserve better.

They say “the thrill of the chase" makes someone more enticing. There's just something about wanting something you can't have that drives you crazy (in a good way). There is never a dull moment. Pursuing him is a challenge. Nothing comes easily. What's the fun in that anyway?

I'm going to tell you this: stop chasing him. Stop forgiving him when he forgets to answer your text messages and phone calls. Stop being the one to always make plans. Stop letting him bail on you. Stop waiting around for him. Stop being lied to. Stop making excuses when he doesn't make time for you. There is a difference between someone who is “hard to get" and a flat out jerk who doesn't give you the time of day. Stop letting him use you.

You deserve to be with someone who makes you fall asleep every night in the middle of texting him because neither of you want the conversation to end. You deserve someone who plans dates for the two of you. You deserve someone who asks you to hang out before midnight. You deserve someone who wants to spend time with you just as much as you do with them. You deserve someone who insists on paying for your ice cream. You deserve someone who won't deceive you. You deserve someone who is straightforward. You deserve attention. You deserve affection. You deserve a partnership that is mutual, not one-sided. You deserve to be chased.

You are better than 3 a.m. “Hey" texts. You are better than a night spent watching a movie just to fool around. You are better than trying to decode his vague messages. You are better than his shadiness. You are better than mind games. You are better than being ignored.

If you have to chase him, he's not worth it. Don't settle for someone who makes you beg for his attention. If he is genuinely interested in getting to know you, he will put in the effort. A relationship where your feelings are reciprocated is far more rewarding than one where you constantly feel like you have to drag him along.

Change your mentality. Become more independent. Be confident, be bold. Find happiness in being alone. Don't waste your time pathetically chasing after someone who doesn't feel the same, but doesn't have the heart or the courage to tell you so. Your self-confidence and positivity will make you radiant, and eventually, you will attract the kind of guy who is mature enough to not mess with your head.

Dating someone for a year+ means that you are bound to know things you might not have known in the early months of the relationship. You also might act differently than you did at the beginning of the relationship.

Here are 12 things you know when you've been dating for over a year.

1. Clothing size, shoe size

This one you can probably be able to figure out early in the relationship. But, you start to keep in the back of your mind and think of that person when you see clothes or a pair of shoes they might like.

2. You can guess what they are going to text back

Especially if it is just a casual conversation about nothing in particular. You know their go-to responses.

3. You have multiple food orders memorized

Their food orders, of course.

4. You have that one TV show you can put on and neither of you will complain

And that is "The Office."

5. You don't get jealous

How could you have lasted in a relationship for over a year and not have any trust?

6. You know likes and dislikes

And can assume if they are going to like or dislike something.

7. You got a LONG Snapstreak

474 day streak over here.

8. Their successes make you just as happy as it makes them

Seeing your significant other do well and accomplish something great is just as rewarding as if you had done the same.

9. Your friends are his friends and his friends are your friends

And you can all hang out together.

10. You have your favorite restaurants

That we always end up going to.

11. You've met everyone in the family and extended family

And you feel like part of the family.

12. You know extremely personal things about each other

That you would not necessarily share with the public.
