When you feel like you’re perpetually single, it can be easy to start questioning if there’s something wrong with you. Even though it’s 2016 and we should all know better than to determine our own value based on whether or not we’re dating someone, there are still people out there who will try to convince you that your worth can be determined by your relationship status. But regardless of whether you’re single, taken, or somewhere in between, these things will always be more important than how single you are:
1. YOUR OWN SELF-WORTH
What you value about yourself is infinitely more important than what a potential boyfriend could think about you. If you don’t think that you’re a serious catch on your own, then getting into a relationship isn’t going to change that. Regardless of who you end up in the future, it’s guaranteed that you’re going to have to live with yourself your whole life — don’t you want to love that person?
