Crying about Boys Who Don’t like You

Crying about Boys Who Don’t like You Everyone has different taste. Some men will think you're unattractive, but others will think you're the most beautiful woman they've ever seen. Don't take it to heart when someone rejects you. It's his loss. Besides, staying single will assure that you're available when Mr. Right finally comes along.

2

Refusing to Go out Alone

Refusing to Go out Alone If your friends refuse to see a certain movie with you, go to the theater alone. You can sit at a restaurant by yourself, as well. It's not as embarrassing as you're imagining it will be. No one is going to stare at you. No one is going to make a comment. No one is going to judge. So if you're in the mood for Applebees, go get a table and enjoy a meal all by your lonesome.

Criticizing Yourself

Criticizing Yourself There are thousands of gorgeous, talented, valuable women who are unattached, so don't fool yourself into believing there's something wrong with you. You're not single, because you're ugly. It's not because you're boring, either. It's because you haven't run into the right guy yet. So don't blame yourself for something that isn't your fault.

Sleeping All Day

cartoon, anime, screenshot, illustration, fictional character, Don't spend all day in bed, because you "don't have anything better to do." Being single is no reason for you to waste your life. There's a whole world out there for you to explore, so do something productive with your time. Fill out job applications, invite your friends over, or at least clean up your house. Do something to take your mind off of your misery. Pretty soon, you'll forget that you were even upset in the first place.

5

Hating Your Life

Hating Your Life You shouldn't be depressed about being unattached. Think about all of your friends who have horror stories to tell about their boyfriends. It's better to be alone than to be in an unhealthy relationship, so you should be proud of being single. Besides, a boyfriend isn't everything. There's so much more to worry about. Instead of focusing on finding love, you can focus on another area of your life, like your career.

Waiting for Nothing

Waiting for Nothing Don't sit around, waiting for your life to change. You're in charge of your future, so it's time to take control. If you want to ask a guy out, ask him out. If you want to meet new people, then leave your house. If you want to be happy, then take steps toward happiness.

7

Being Jealous over Your Friends

Being Jealous over Your Friends Jealousy can kill your spirit. That's why you need to learn to come to peace with the fact that some people are in happy relationships. If you can't stand looking at pictures of your gal pals with their boyfriends, then take a break from social media. There's no reason to torture yourself.

One can find their soul when experience solitude and serenity being solo. 🙏

I honestly hate being single to the core,but I'm too shy to approach guys...

Being single does have great perks

I am just starting to appreciate more of my single life then I was dating with guys who were not that worth it.. But I know I will find my ideal guy one day. But for now I am most likely to do things alone and by myself even if a friend can't or won't accompany you. And yeah it does help you gain independence and be more confident of oneself. I think it's not bad and it is part of life that we need to appreciate it more.

Thank you for the post. 👍🏽

Absolutely Loved it!

Never waste you valuable time and your beautiful mind on any of these ridiculous thoughts..., not even one second!!!

Do things alone even if you are in a relationship. Go to movies or a restaurant by yourself at least once a month. It really builds independence and confidence without the SO. I personally go to concerts alone a lot if my girlfriend doesn't like the band. It really helped me get my confidence and keeps me independent without losing my relationship

Could someone tell me who's dating my boyfriend from here?

I'm single and proud! 😝💪🏻
