In my years of dating there were times I wasn’t happy with myself. We all go through periods where we wish we could kick ourselves to the curb. When I was in this slump I realized how it affected the people I was dating or if I was single I sure as hell wasn’t getting any one knocking on my door. So after awhile I figured out that when I was happy with whom I was, it spread like wild fire to all around me. Love yourself, and you can love another. This mantra I swear by every day. Love doesn’t mean you have to be the prettiest or the handsomest or even the smartest. Love equals love as without love it doesn’t exist. Wow deep thoughts eh?! This may sound corny but it’s true. When you are in a dating desert, think about how you feel about yourself at that time. Are you unhappy with yourself, are you lacking self esteem? Think of people you know like friends, family, celebs who are miserable with themselves and look at how their love life is. Always start with you.
