25 Uncomfortable Truths About Love And Dating You Need To Hear Right Now

Listen, I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news, the harbinger of harsh truths, but here I am being just that. There might be something in your dating life that you’re ignoring. Do yourself a favor and make this right, even if it’s going to suck a little.

  1. If they liked you, you’d know it.
  2. If they wanted to date you, they would.
  3. If it doesn’t feel right, it isn’t.
  4. Don’t wait around for your crush to fall for you. Make it happen or move on.
  5. Don’t let your hope keep you from seeing the truth for what it is.
  6. You have to actually put in some effort to find someone worth dating.
  7. If you’re always seeing the same people on the dating apps, you’re the “same people” to them as well.
  8. Don’t keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
  9. Being alone is better than being in a bad relationship.
  10. Sometimes it takes getting out of your comfort zone to find someone special.
  11. If your friends don’t like them, that’s a red flag.
  12. If you can never get comfortable with your partner, you’re not a good fit.
  13. The right person will like you for you–not for who they think you should become.
  14. “Love is blind” is a real thing. You might not be seeing the truth of your relationship because you’re clouded by love.
  15. If you’re always the one initiating everything, they’re just with you because it’s convenient.
  16. Just because you like or love them, doesn’t mean you’re right for each other.
  17. Don’t ignore your intuition–you might be on to something.
  18. Don’t hold on to how great it was in the beginning if it’s not good now.
  19. Even the busiest people make time for the ones they care about.
  20. No one is terrible all the time. Don’t excuse bad behavior because they’re sweet sometimes.
  21. If you catch yourself making excuses for them, think long and hard about whether they deserve that kind of consideration.
  22. If you’re unhappy with where your relationship is right now, it’s unlikely to improve.
  23. Stay away from people who trample all your boundaries.
  24. Don’t wait around for someone to start treating you right.
  25. As soon as you wonder if you should break up, the answer is yes.
