Cuffing season is in full effect and for those that are single, it is definitely a time that can make you feel lonely. This time of year, especially following New Years and Valentine’s Day, many are in a relationship and making it known through major PDA and social media posts. If you are the one clicking single on your relationship status on Facebook or seeing all the tweets about love, here are a few quotes to help boost your confidence this cuffing season.
- “Fall in love with taking care of yourself. Mind. Body. Sprit.”
While it can be tough to see others find love when you are single, it is important to know how to love yourself before jumping into any relationship. In order to truly find love in another person, you need to have love for yourself first. Learn to find your inner confidence, and sooner than you think, love will find you.
- “It’s better to be single with high standards than in a relationship settling for less.”
Being single can last weeks, months or longer. Many find themselves looking for a relationship and jumping into one way too fast. Take the time to be single to find out what you want in your future soulmate. Set your standards high, and never settle for less than you deserve. Know what you deserve and you will never find yourself settling.
- “Being single doesn’t mean you’re weak, it means you’re strong enough to wait for what you deserve.”
Many people that are in relationships like to make it very well known on Instagram and Twitter. With all the posts and comments about how great it is to be cuffed, there is no reason to feel less than or not good enough if you’re not. Being able to be independent takes a strong individual. So seeing others in relationships should never make you feel weak, but rather make you feel empowered for this time to focus on yourself and knowing what and who you deserve.
- “Wait for the person who will do anything to be your everything.”
Don’t get me wrong, being in love is great, but there is no need to rush finding it. Make sure the person you are looking for is good for you, and willing to make you a priority. Being patient and waiting for the right person is important to remember this cuffing season. Finding someone who is willing to put you first is worth waiting for.
- “We don’t need to rush. If something’s bound to happen, it will happen. In the right time, with the right person and for the best reason.”
Like the old saying goes, things happen for a reason. Being single during this cuffing season can definitely be unpleasant, but your time to fall in love will come too. It is easy to find yourself caught up in the craze to find your other half, but rushing to find love is not the answer. The right person is waiting, and those who are patient will find that person when the time is right.
