Have you ever been in a relationship and wished you were single or have you ever been single and wished you were in a relationship? There’s no doubt, there are perks to the single life but at RussianCupid we believe there is no substitute to a loving, committed relationship with the right partner. Someone who excites you, makes your heart skip a beat and makes you want to be a better person.
In this blog we take a look at the top 4 reasons you are better off in a relationship.
You’re More Selfless
Sure, being single might give you a sense of freedom from only having to look out for yourself but acting selflessly and pleasing another person can actually be a very rewarding experience. Being one half of a quality, meaningful relationship means you are constantly thinking of one another, considering the impact of your actions and planning for the needs and desires of your partner. Selflessness is a very attractive quality and being in a relationship helps to foster that. And don’t forget, it’s a two-way street so not only will you be striving to please your partner but they will be working hard to please you.
You Gain A Sense Of Confidence
Being in a relationship, particularly if you have been single for a while, can give you a real sense of confidence and self-worth. This newfound confidence can help improve the perception of yourself and how others perceive you both socially and professionally. Often members say that finding love on a dating site has actually had a positive impact that stretches through many aspects of their lives beyond just a romantic aspect.
You Might Learn Something About Yourself
Many members come to a dating site after being single for a long time, often for many years. Those who have been single for a while start to develop an image of themselves that may change once they get into a relationship, for good or for bad. Even if you find you have things to work on, knowing this is a great start to improving your life overall. It often isn’t until we are in a loving, committed relationship that we see a whole new side of ourselves that may not have existed before. As with confidence, this can have a profound impact on your life overall and can benefit you both personally and professionally.
You Feel A Sense Of Purpose
Sometimes being single can make your dreams of having a family and children seem like a distant prospect. Although you’re not going to rush into these things when you are in a new relationship, it does bring your goals into more of a reality and something you are working towards. Maybe you don’t see your future as having kids and instead you want to travel, own a home or grow personally. Whatever your goals are, being in a relationship has a funny way of putting these goals into action and giving you a real sense of purpose again.
We are all different and how being in a loving, committed relationship affects each of us differently. Whether being in a relationship fills you with confidence, reignites your sense of purpose and determination, teaches you things about yourself or helps you grow as a partner, there’s a lot being in a relationship can teach us. And it all starts with setting up your profile! What are you waiting for?
