Our society is too focused on finding a partner and having a relationship that we have almost forgotten that being a happy individual is important too. But here is the thing. Being single and happy is important, and it is beautiful. In fact, happiness is sexy. People who’ve found joy within themselves and others naturally attract all of the best people.
These are 8 things that happy single people do that attract great lovers.
#1. They don’t hang on to the past.
At some point or another most of us have gone through break-ups and heartbreaks. We have been dumped, we have been rejected by the people we love. Yes, it is a good thing to take some time to get up on your feet again. But it is never a good idea to be hung over your past, no matter how much it hurts, no matter how much you find yourself thinking about it. In fact, happy single people don’t cling to the past. They let is fade away gradually. When you are not stuck in your past, you start looking forward to your future, which includes your future partner.
#2. They avoid bad relationships.
Being single and unhappy about it prompts people to enter unhealthy relationships. It does not have to romantic; it can be platonic too. Usually, single people who are unhappy about being single let people into their lives just because they are too lonely, not because they have met a potential romantic partner.
But truly happy single people know how to be moderate in their relationships. They know how to avoid bad people. They filter the people they let into their lives. Of course, when you surround yourself with good people, you exclude a good vibe which attracts more good people.
#3. They practice self-love.
If you can’t or don’t love yourself, how can you expect to love anyone else? So it is important to love yourself. More importantly, potential romantic partners can sniff when you do not love yourself.
#4. They practice self-care.
Truly happy single people also practice self-care. Self-care includes things like eating well, exercising, bathing regularly, flossing, visiting the doctor when you need to, and making sure you’re leading a happy life. Single people who take care of themselves give out the signal that they are capable of taking care of basic things, attracting potential romantic partners.
#5. They practice self-awareness.
This is one of the most important things. Being self-aware means that you are aware of how you come off, how you look and how you sound when interacting with other people. If you are self-aware, you know when you have been mean to someone; you take responsibility for it and apologize.
#6. They’re independent.
When we are in a relationship, we tend to forget the importance of being independent. This is one of the direst things you can do in a relationship. In fact. A healthy relationship is based on two people who do not have an issue with being independent and alone. So if you are single and independent, rest assured that you will attract a good partner soon.
#7. They build up others.
Unhappy people tend to tear down the people around them. It is those who are happy that build the ones around them. They try to build up the confidence of the people they love! They always offer to help their friends in any way they can.
#8. They don’t compete.
Truly happy single people do not go after those who have been already taken. They realize that it’s not a competition. They know that competing is such an unattractive feature.
All of these traits attract potential romantic partners. But you also need to keep in mind that the most important thing is to be yourself.
