A successful life is not always about getting or achieving more, it is also about appreciating and utilizing what you already have.
Here are 25 tips for how to feel a thousand times happier in your love life. Each tip will only take a moment to read, but if put into action, will create lasting change in the way you live.
1. ‘Still single.’ it doesn’t mean that you are under any obligation to explain your ‘situation’ to people who want to know how you could possibly be ‘still single.’
2. Always stand your ground when you truly feel like you need to stick up for yourself in a relationship.
3. Learn how to apologize, because it’s never going to be easy or pleasant to do so, even when you know deep down that you’re in the wrong.
4. The only way another person will change is if they want to; it’s not something you can control and that’s something you need to accept from the get-go.
5. Acknowledge the fact that although a loving partner can bring you incredible happiness, joy, support, and comfort, they are not responsible for making you whole – that’s your job.
6. Be realistic about what your needs are in a relationship.
7. But don’t apologize for having standards and believing that you deserve someone who treats you well and makes you happy.
8. Meet Your Friends bring some sweet memories of your childhood and classroom.
9. Remind yourself that infatuation is just an instant, addictive, and temporary high.
10. But that genuine love is a steadier, more evenly-paced sort of lasting comfort.
11. Remember that being single does not mean that there is anything wrong with you.
12. Falling in love is easy; choosing to stay in love is the harder part.

14. Accept from the very beginning that if you want a lifelong partnership with someone, you’re going to have to make a lot of compromises.
15. Remember that passion and excitement are wonderful things to feel in a relationship, but that kindness and selflessness are often more important when it comes to making love last.

17. Being alone does not have to mean the same thing as being lonely.
18. Make sure that you’re never falling in love with the idea of someone.
