Meet yourself. You are you're own hottest date ever.
Discover who you really are. Ask questions about their goals, what they want in life, what they fear, what they regret, what they hope for.
Ask them WHY. Dig in deep.
Learn to appreciate that person.
Respect him or her. Give time to understand his/her feelings without harshly criticizing or blaming them for their faults and mistakes.
Encourage and compliment them. Tell them words of affirmation.
Take them out to activities they enjoy and create lasting memories.
That's how you love a person. That's how you love yourself.
Look, I don't care if you are single, in a relationship, or in multiple relationships, whatever your situation is...
...the fact of the matter is you can't find love in someone else until you find love within yourself.
Otherwise, what you're doing is called "worship", not love, and you are putting them above you.
A healthy relationship is NOT about "two halves becoming a whole", it's about two wholes coming together.
No person should ever "complete" you. You complete yourself.
Whether you've been together with someone for 5 years or have been single for 10, mastering the art of self love is something you must do.
For one thing, it makes life a lot more fulfilling and a heck of a lot easier. Instead of seeking to satisfy another person, you seek to satisfy yourself, meaning all your effort goes into your own happiness rather than someone else's.
Save time and effort in relationships by loving yourself first.
It is through achieving your own happiness that you'll attract someone that has managed to do the same (or encourage them to do so) and the relationship becomes a mutual project to grow together, rather than a source to "get high" on validation and shirking responsibility for your own emotions.
Own your emotions and respond to them calmly. Validate yourself and don't seek it externally.
The best relationship you can have is one with yourself. That's the one person who will always be there for you. Never forget that.
Take it easy. Love you guys,
