10 Things We Tell Ourselves That Keep Us Single

I always enjoy reading Virgina Clark’s love advice on YourTango. She posted a piece this week called 3 Lies You’re Telling Yourself That Keep You Single wherein she lists three broad, negative messages women repeat to themselves, then offers alternate mantras that will lead to a fulfilling relationship. These general ideas Clark shared got me thinking about the specific self-defeating messages I repeat (unintentionally) when I think about the dating scene as I know it and my feelings about finding love.

I compiled this list of the dating and relationship myths I’ve bought into that I’d like to let go of. How many of these resonate with you?
