It’s okay to be in a relationship with yourself instead.

You want to date just because.

There’s no reason. You just want someone around because you get bored and lonely occasionally. Actually, you really just want some attention. Maybe someone to pay for takeout every now and then.

You have no idea what you want in a partner.

“I want them to look good, throw in a six-pack (abs not beer), okay they should definitely have blue eyes… or green. And they should be like, super nice. Like super duper nice. Oh yeah, and a job so that we could go out and stuff for like drinks.”

You’re unhappy with yourself, and you believe they’ll magically make you happy.

You can’t love another human being if you don’t know how to love yourself.

You’re unable to communicate.

If you don’t know how to communicate, your relationship will be a struggle.

You don’t know how to commit.

If you don’t know how to do it, you most likely just don’t want to do it.
