Buzz, Self

All the single ladies!

The single life can be WAY more glamorous than you think. Sure, you may want that ONE person who makes your heart feel full, who is your best friend and partner through everything.

But how can you possibly love someone ELSE when you haven't even learned how to love YOURSELF?

Being alone can be the most romantic thing in the world if you want it to be. Although some people choose to view singleness as a form of rejection, being single really is a pathway to happiness.

Doing exactly what you want without EVER having to consider another person's opinion is the stress-free life you'll want to be living.

Sure, you may be open to meeting that one special person, but why not live your BEST life while you wait for them? If you love being alone, your standards will be higher because you won't go for just ANYONE, which is how it should be!

Settling is something we do when we fear being alone. It's human nature to want the approval and love of other people, and sometimes that outweighs what we really need. How you treat yourself reflects how you treat others, so really, you're preparing yourself to be the best partner EVER.

Someone is going to feel SO lucky when they find you because they'll appreciate how well you know yourself and feel secure in who you are. Alone time doesn't mean you're lonely and being single doesn't mean you're desperate for love. 

Being single means you're falling in love with YOU and doing all the things you've always wanted without even having to think twice.

Go to that yoga class alone, cook yourself your favorite dinner, buy that dress that you LOVE no matter how questionably tacky it may be because it's all about YOU. Love will find you when you need it, and chances are it won't find you until you're ready.

Enjoy the single life, it's guilt-free, care-free living. We are taught that we shouldn't want to be alone, that finding a partner is more important than focusing on yourself.

But how can you possibly take care of someone else when you don't know how to take care of yourself?

Take this time to learn what you need from yourself and from other people. Journal more, meditate, exercise, WHATEVER makes you feel the most in tune with who you are, and you'll find all the ways you can love yourself and find all the ways someone else can love you. 

It makes it WAY easier to weed out the bad guys when you know EXACTLY what you want and need in a person. It may not be easy at first, especially when you've been in relationships and you can't seem to stand being alone. But I'm telling you, once you take that first leap of "I'm going to be happy, damn it" the world will become a bigger place with SO much for you in store.

These 20 single life quotes are saying you should LIVE by while you're single, and honestly, they'll make you want to STAY single!
