Sometimes we settle. We want to be with someone or we buy into the voices that tell us we’re being too picky and we end up in a relationship with someone that’s not right for us.
Don’t do it.
#1: Stay single until you love someone so much you don’t expect anything from them.
When you do not expect your partner to give you favors or carry their weight with household duties, then you know your love is genuine. Their happiness becomes more important than anything else and seeing them happy makes you happy.
#2: Stay single until you love someone so much it invigorates and re-energizes you.
No matter how difficult your day is, if you can go home and immediately feel a sense of relief from seeing and embracing your partner, then it’s probably true love. What’s more, if the more time you spend with your partner, you really feel more energetic, it’s an even stronger sign.
#3: Stay single until you love someone so much your feelings make sense.

#4: Stay single until you love someone so much they make you treat other people better.
When you are so happy that it starts to impact the way you do everything in life – including the way you interact with other human beings—then you know you’re in an optimal romantic relationship. Furthermore, the people you interact with becoming happier, which will end up making you even happier than you already are.
#5: Stay single until you love someone so much you become a stronger individual.
The love you feel makes you brave enough to accept change and get out of your comfort zone because you know love will catch you when you fall. It makes you feel grateful each day as you cherish the presence of this person you love. Your love towards them never feels complicated and it makes you feel secure.
#6: Stay single until you love someone so much that you end up knowing yourself better.
When your partner tells you why they love you so much and why you make them feel the way they do about you, you’ll realize a lot more about yourself than ever before. If what you learn is virtually all positive, then your partner is right for you.
#7: Stay single until you love someone so much you become more grounded.
When you love your partner so much, you may focus on realizing happiness, peacefulness, and success in everyday life as opposed to daydreaming about shallow and unrealistic desires.

#9: Stay single until you love someone so much that it brings you peace.
It’s true love when you eventually feel peace and content instead of nervousness and scattered emotions around the other person. At least most of the time, these feelings will always come back every once in a while, and they’ll be appreciated even more in concentrated doses.
#10: Stay single until you love someone so much that you’re finally able to love yourself.
As alluded to, the true love that you see in your partner’s eyes, hear in your partner’s voice, and feel in your partner’s touch will make you 100% aware that you are worth being loved meaningfully and lastingly—and it will finally feel like you’re really worth all that love.
