There is a third options, besides settling, and besides starting the search over.<br />
You could decide you don't need a relationship right now, and work purely on your own goals. Maybe you'll meet someone along the way.
Want more of course! But you have to have the belief in yourself, and although it sounds corny, you don't need love from others if you love yourself. Then when you are loved by others it's a bonus
Don't get yourself rescued. There would be a high price to pay. We all struggle. Just keep going, and things can and usually do get easier
Aww Not childish. Be a little kinder to yourself, and develop some self-belief
Go back to doing art :) And welcome
It is something worth doing though, and helps the mind to relax
uummm, are you in love with the person or just want someone, or need someone, to settle with? in not criticizing either choice but you are young and life is full of opportunities ... please don't settle for second best, but good luck with whatever choice you make. :)
I think I would definitely put any plans on the back burner until you decide what is right for you .... to be crude, your partner sounds more like a habit, rather than someone you rush home to because you miss them ... please be careful. :)
if that is your first ... and only guy ... then you need to keep trying till you get one that fits, no plans on alterations or losing weight when you get it home to make it fit
Settle for leftovers and scraps and you will either get food poisoning or left hungry.<br />
Your a long time dead to be in a relationship that is not fulfilling.<br />
Your still young. Go out and explore the world and live life. <br />
That's my advice.<br />
Good luck in what ever you do.
Why do you think that settling for someone just to have someone is better than being single?? You're a young woman. Why the rush? Just live your life .. finding your own personal happiness. Sounds like you're depressed .. and making bad choices. That's why you're unhappy. Happy, content people are much more attractive. Find the right person for the right reasons and never "settle" for anything less. You deserve that, don't you think?
