So many people settle when it comes to dating.
Sometimes people will date someone even if they aren’t completely happy, in the hope that they might be able to change them.
For example, they might date a smoker even though they are anti-smoking. Or perhaps someone who parties too much or exercises too little.
Unfortunately, it’s a bit like trying to fill a watering can that has a big hole in it. You’ll never change them to how you want them to be and even if you do they’ll end up resenting you for it.
Of course, nobody is perfect and you should always give people a chance if you feel there is any sort of chemistry there. I’m just saying that you shouldn’t sacrifice what’s important to you just because you feel you need to be in a relationship.
The truth is that you can meet an amazing partner as long as you realise you deserve it. You don’t need to settle for second best.
Work on your self esteem and surround yourself with positive, upbeat people. As soon as you get in the right frame of mind you’ll being attracting the sort of partner who meets more of your key requirements.
