There’s no time frame

Had you planned that you were going to be settled and possibly married by age thirty? Well it didn’t happen and that doesn’t mean it never will. Love knows no age and when you least expect it that’s when it’ll happen.


Failed relationships are part of the journey

You definitely have to kiss a lot of frogs before you meet your prince charming. The more you meet the wrong one’s the more you get to fine tune what you want from a man.


There’s no rush

If you’re at a point where you have nothing good to say about love and the dating scene then it’s time for you to take a break. You’re allowed to take as much time as you want picking your Mr Right. Avoid saying things like ‘I’ll never find love again’ because this  could possibly close up your chances of finding love.


Leave the past in the past

So what the number of your failed relationships exceed those that actually worked out? Who’s counting? Taking breaks when you feel overwhelmed by complications of love  is a need.  You want your Mr right to find you when you’re in a good space.


It’ll be worth it

Looking back at your love journey will make you proud of how far you’ve come. It may not look all rosey right now but your past bad experience is a lesson for the future encounters you’re going to have.
