The dating world can be fierce, unforgiving, and just plain sh*tty. All you want is to find someone who can appreciate a good Netflix session (no chill needed) and has adequate personal hygiene, right? OK. You probably have a few more qualities you're looking for and, sure, while perfection doesn't exist, you still hope you can find someone who's compatible, doesn't drive you insane, and won't mock your television choices. Let's be real here, you basically want to date yourself.
And is that such a terrible thing? Um, no. For one thing, you're pretty damn awesome. You're a total catch and anyone would be lucky to have you. So why be so hard on yourself in the dating world? Your friends love to say things like, "It's not you, it's them." They remind you all the time how it's someone else's loss, not yours, and that they'll realize "what they had" one day. With all of those cliche lines and your rocking personality, it's pretty obvious that dating yourself guarantees happiness. Sure, you may find someone one day who makes your heart beat wildly and fits into your life like a puzzle, but in the meantime? Take yourself out on a date. You are beautiful, you are fun, you are smart, and you deserve it. If you're still unsure, I've got nine reasons why you should totally date yourself, and when you finish reading them, you're going to be all, "Damn. I'm the perfect SO." Just don't make out with the mirror, OK?
