If you ever feel hopeless, helpless, and alone in the realm of dating.. read the following.
The single life isn’t the worst thing in the world. Unless you like the same sex, live in a small town, go to a conservative school, and don’t have a car. But really, it’s not that bad at all.
When you live in a small town and have high standards, things are immediately much more difficult than they should be. And as I crunch the numbers, people with the right personality, good looks, and like my gender.. oh, and are my age, nearby, I’m narrowed down to about 3-4 viable options to my knowledge. At least 3 of whom I’ve already wrecked all future chances of a relationship with.
So it’s impossible, right?
I wrote a post once about Break-ups and I said it then, I’ll reiterate that point: LISTEN TO YOUR FRIENDS. Never be afraid to ask for advice, to ask for help, because at some point we all need it. When I said that before, I was talking about my friends who asked me “What the hell are you thinking going out with him?”, this time I’m saying ask for help. Some people don’t want to burden others with their problems, but if a friend comes to you and asks for help, aren’t you glad they trust you? If you help them and they need it, you feel fulfilled (all assuming you have a healthy, compassionate friendship). Let them feel the same way.
