5 Reasons Why You Should Date Yourself

It ain’t trickin` if you got it!

I will always trick on me because I earned it, because I’m worth it and because I deserve the best of everything and I will always gift that to myself.

Never stop dating yourself, rather you are in a relationship or if you’re single. Treat yourself to vacations, gifts, a new home, a trip to the hair salon, that new iPad etc. Send yourself flowers and chocolates. Take yourself to the museum or to your city’s largest library. Get to know yourself better. Document your growth and your shortcomings. Live in the now because it’s all that we are promised.

That said, here are the five reasons why you should date yourself:

1. You are setting the expectation!

You wouldn’t date someone who doesn’t at least treat you as good as you’ve treated yourself, right? Right. You are setting the bar for yourself, by yourself so when someone comes along you know how you’d like to be treated and you won’t accept anything less.

2. Self-love!

You need to be in absolute love with yourself, most of the time, because all of the time simply isn’t realistic. You attract what you are. Be love if you want love. Don’t expect someone to come along and love you better than you do. You should feel happy and loved – alone. Another person can add to the love but they can’t and shouldn’t be tasked with creating it.

3. You are your longest relationship.

You will never have a relationship that lasts as long as the one that you have with yourself. Make it a healthy relationship. Make it one that is full of more smiles than frowns. More money than debt. More trips than baggage.

One more time for those in the back.

More trips than baggage.

Build a strong, abundant and fulfilling relationship with yourself by spending more time with you – you deserve it.

4. Constant Crush.

You should, in my opinion, never stop crushing on yourself. You are stunning, immaculate, healed and radiant. Wink at yourself. Hug yourself. Love on yourself. Build your best body ever. Get those highlights or that boob job. Read that book. Compliment yourself. Pray on it more than you talk about it. Get dolled up to take yourself to dinner. I crush on me – hard – and I always will, so should you!

5. Because its healthy.

Again, you need to be what you want to receive. You can’t expect a healthy relationship to come from you if you have a toxic relationship with yourself. You call yourself fat. You gossip more than you praise. You yell at your parents and beat your kids for no reason, etc. That’s not healthy. Work on your personal relationship fitness. Get a life coach or therapist, if need be and make being with you a healthy place to be.

You got this!
