Usually I don’t give dating advice. I’ve only been in one major romantic relationship in my life, so I don’t feel like I’m well-versed in knowledge of relationships.
I just wanted to repeat a piece of advice that I’ve heard many times before, but never really paid attention to.
You can’t truly love someone until you love yourself.
In other words, to love yourself, you have to know who you are. It’s why most teen romances fail – teenagers don’t know who they are. Heck, even some people in their 40s don’t know who they really are. I definitely don’t know who I am yet. That’s why I’m postponing having another relationship until I know precisely what I want to be doing with my life and who I am. Only then can I consider what I want (or what’s best for me) in a partner.
I know lots of people in their 20s who rush into relationships and marriages. Don’t rush. Take your time. Find out who you are and learn to love yourself… then you’ll know what you want in a partner – or at least have a much better idea than you did before.
What’s the best relationship advice you’ve ever heard?
