Why You Should Never Settle For Less Than You Deserve

Love, Self

Just because you're getting older doesn't mean that you have to settle for Mr. Right Now.

For some reason, people usually think that the older they get, the less chances there are for them to find their love. We're here to tell you that this couldn't be further from the truth! It doesn't matter if you've hit the 30, 40, or 50 benchmark; when it really comes down to it, rushing into dating someone just for the sake of having boyfriend or girlfriend won't do you any favors. Just because you're getting older doesn't mean that you have to settle for with Mr. Right Now when the right guy is out there. Loneliness should never be an excuse to stay in a relationship if you're just not into it.

Dating expert Janet Ong Zimmerman definitelty has a point when she mentions why you shouldn't settle with a guy just because he chose you or you think you're running out of time. Being lonely should never be the reason why you stay with someone that you don't connect with on an emotional, physical or even spiritual level because it'll only end up hurting the both of you in the end. To be quite frank, the chances of a "good enough" guy turning into a great one are slim to none. By settling, you believe that you don't deserve more. So ladies, do yourself a favor and avoid making this lifelong mistake because you DO deserve to be happy with someone that you love.
