As much as I hate to say anything positive about my last relationship, I'm actually thankful that it happened.
He put me on the most emotional roller coaster I have ever been on and one day I finally realized I was not being treated the way I deserved to be.
Relationships are meant to be beautiful and easy. Not some amusement park ride where you are constantly being thrown in a bunch of different directions.
So please, if you are on that ride, get off. Now.
And simply, wait for the right guy.
And I know... waiting is the worst thing ever, mostly because a lot of us are impatient.
Us girls get these high hopes when we meet someone who we think is "boyfriend material" and we try to make it seem like it was fate and it's the best thing ever.
However, we let our feelings get in the way of red flags that are literally waving right in front of us.
We are constantly looking and ignoring those flags because we think they'll eventually change.
That one day things will be different and they will just randomly wake up and love you as much as you love them.
But they won't.
I promise it will be much harder to continue the roller coaster ride that you are on, constantly hoping that it'll get better than it is to just get out and move on.
Sometimes girls get so caught up in needing a guy so bad that they settle for boys who have a long way to go before they are ready for a relationship.
But please, don't settle. Instead, wait for the right guy. Because he is literally right around the corner.
He's the guy who will love you, care about your feelings.
A guy who will ask you how your day was, or randomly buys you flowers just because he happened to see them on the checkout line.
Wait for the guy who is truly interested in you. Who wants nothing more in the world than to see you happy.
The guy who is genuinely interested in knowing every little thing that makes you, you.
Stay single until you find a guy who holds your hand during scary movies, inquires about your past and is interested in being apart of your family.
I promise you, he is out there. There is no need to rush into finding a guy, your clock isn't running out.
You have plenty of time left to find your guy.
And not just any guy, the right guy.
Waiting for him will be the best decision you ever make.
