I really should call this the thought of the day but it’s a quote too. I work with a few people that are desperate to be in a relationship (no sugar coating here folks), that I don’t think they really care who they’re with so long as they’re with someone.
Which means it’s never going to work out. You can’t be in what I would call a good relationship unless you’re happy first. Being with someone might take away the lonely but it is only temporary.
Be happy first, then love will find you.
