The only thing worse than being single is being with someone who doesn't give a damn about you. This is someone who will feed you crumbs just to keep you around because they know you have made a commitment to be with them. This is downright degrading.
You keep waiting for them to change their ways, but they never do. They have no intention of getting their shit together because they know you are not going anywhere.
You should choose to be single over being with someone who wants to see what else the dating world has to offer although they want you to commit to them alone. This person thinks they are so charming and irresistible that they can do whatever they want and you will stay loyal to them.
It is better to remain single than to be with someone who always cancels on you and brings all sorts of turmoil into your life. You deserve stability in your life.
If someone has no idea what they want in a relationship, then you can help them make a choice by leaving them completely.
If you are with someone who always prefers the company of his friends over yours when going out, then you are better off being single. Someone who has a hard time committing to one person does not deserve your effort and attention.
Being single is far better than being with someone who is not sure he completely wants to be part of the relationship. In a relationship, someone needs to give all of themselves, not just part of who they are. Otherwise, you will end up doing all the work in the relationship, and that will drain you both physically and emotionally.
If you are to be in a relationship, let it be a real relationship, not something that seems like a relationship even though it's not. An "almost" relationship is not good enough. So, if there are any doubts about any long-term commitments for any of you, then you are better off without the relationship.
You deserve much better. You are worthy of love and respect. You should be in a relationship that gives you stability and consistency. The person you deserve in your life should be someone who gives you a real relationship, not the illusion of one. So, unless a relationship fulfills you and makes you grow as a person, it is not worth your effort or time. And that's not pride, it's self-respect and a way of showing that you know and appreciate your worth.
Being single sure sucks when all you want is to have someone by your side. But don't let desperation get you into a relationship you don't deserve. You are worthy of all the benefits a relationship should offer, and even the perfect person for you will be lucky to have you in their lives.
You should not be anyone's second option. The least you deserve is a true relationship, and you should never feel compelled to be in a relationship just to avoid feeling lonely.
Yes, you deserve a lot more than being someone's MAYBE. You should be someone's "one and only." With you in their lives, they should not desire another or find any interest in being with someone else. Commitment should come naturally because you are worth it.
