You don't have to be in a relationship.
I mean it. I know they force it down your throat until you choke on it. Girls aren't pretty unless they're wanted. Boy's aren't men unless they're having sex with someone. People aren't lovable until they're dating someone.
But a relationship won't always make you happy, and as wonderful as romance is, it isn't the only love that exists. I have seen friendships that are deeper and more pure than couples when they swear it's forever - and yet the friendship is the one people ignore.
I have heard so often "nobody loves me" out of the mouth of people who are single. And it kills me because if you ask them: where are your parents, your teachers, you classmates, your pets - they say, yes, okay, but it doesn't count. Of course it counts.
It is pretty to be in love. It's magical, I'm sure. But it's also wonderful to stop for ice cream in your prom dress with six other girls. It's also wonderful to go visit the world with nothing but a bunch of buddies who are really excited about learning.
The problem is: we're made everything about "the one." But maybe "the one" is just you, loving yourself, having fun, and being happy. Maybe instead of looking for out other halves, we should be piecing ourselves together.
Maybe I wasn't born unfinished. Maybe I am the one who makes myself better."

Maybe you don't realise that in the end of the day you are happy with what you have.
Maybe you don't realise that you are already in love. Love just works in different ways and forms. And your way is not worse because some others could not handle it that way.
Maybe your ways are... the best... for you.
Not maybe. They really are.
