Far too many people are looking for the right person, instead of trying to be the right person.”  - Gloria Steinem

Would you date yourself? A lot of us want to find 'the right person', but before that, you should consider if you're really ready to attract the relationship you want.

Here are 3 things to consider before you step out to find the one :

  • Create an amazing life for yourself, by yourself. If you aren't particularly happy about who you are and the life you're living, why would someone else want to be a part of it? Love your life and life will take care of your love life.
  • Let go of your past baggage. "Your past only equals your future if you live there." -Tony Robbins.  Learn from your old relationships and move on - don't rush into a new relationship with open wounds from the past.
  • Find yourself first.  Discover your goals, your passions, and invest in yourself first. Don't center your life around external relationships. Build one with yourself first.
  • Learn to enjoy your own company. Live by yourself, and be happy spending time with yourself.

Once you're proud of who you are and the life you're living - put yourself out there! It's just a matter of time before you attract the right one :)
