10 Simple Ways To Find Long Lasting Love, Without Settling For Less

Do you feel like you have been dating forever, but are not able to find love since you have your high standards, and are not willing to settle for anything less than you deserve? You don’t need to settle for anything ordinary and by following these few simple ways you can easily find the kind of long lasting love that you have always dreamt of.

If you think that you are going to find a perfect partner who would come out of your fairytale romance, then it is high-time you stop waiting for something that is never going to happen. People are flawed, and you know what? That is the best part about them. Don’t look for perfection. Look for flaws. Fall in love with them and embrace your partner’s imperfection.

2. Know your worth

Too often, people don’t realize their own worth and settle for something less than they deserve. Don’t make this dreadful mistake and keep fighting for your happiness, even when everyone else thinks that you are losing your mind.

3. Set feasible expectations

It is important to know what you deserve, but at the same time, try not to set unrealistic expectations that can never be met. Don’t try to replicate someone else’s story. Create your own destiny by setting your own goals.

4. Find comfort in loneliness

Don’t hop from one relationship to another, because being single makes you unhappy. Try to be alone for a while and know what you want. The moment you find peace in loneliness, you will realize that it is better to be alone than to settle for anything less.

5. Ask for the things you want

If you think you are with the right person, don’t let them go. Be more vocal about your needs and communicate with your partner. Don’t hide your feelings and be honest about it. Trust and honesty are the building blocks of any relationship and you should never ignore them.

6. Try not to bargain

Needless to say, if you are looking for long lasting love, then you can’t bargain for anything less. Don’t say “yes” to something way too soon, just because it tempts you. Know your worth and never bargain or compromise with your expectations.

7. Keep going

The road to finding the kind of love you are looking for won’t be easy. Your heart might get broken into more pieces than it is originally made up of and somehow, you would be asked to fall in love with your broken heart. Don’t lose hope, even when it might seem like the easiest thing to do.

8. Know what you don’t want

A lot of people don’t really know what they want in their life, which is completely acceptable. But you should always know what you don’t want. If you know you can never be with a certain individual, don’t take a lead. Avoid the things you don’ want to complete the bigger picture.

9. Get healthy

To attain and enjoy long lasting love, you need to make your mind, your body, and even your soul healthy. Before you start caring for someone else, fall in love with yourself. Start appreciating the people around you and create a healthy ambiance. A healthy environment and life can give you peace of mind and contentment so that you can focus on what really matters.

10. Don’t forget to have fun!

Cherish every passing moment and don’t be so much engaged with other things in life that you won’t get time to have some fun. Enjoy every bit of your life and never look back. Keep going and create as many memories as you can. After all, our life is nothing but an entwined strand of memories.

Well, that wasn’t rocket science at all. It might look easy, but these simple ways can certainly help you attain sheer bliss in your life. Strike for excellence and chase for the kind of long lasting love that you always dreamt of. It is your life and only you can give yourself a happy ending!
