Who Needs a Six When You Can Have a Ten?

I don’t know about you, but I am not one of those people that like to date. I like the idea of it, but not the actual act of dating. Ok, let me narrow this down. I don’t like first dates. Or second dates. Or even third dates. Wait, that is basically dating. Ok, I digress…

I like the comfort of being in a relationship. I like the familiarity of knowing someone and not feeling awkward. I like to be able to sit there and make silly comments and not wonder what the person sitting across from me is thinking. And this is why I have often stayed in a relationship longer than it was ever meant to last. It was just easier to keep them around then go through the effort of starting over and meeting someone new. Now, I am not saying I am proud of this pattern. But I have done it.

So the other day I was talking to a friend and got quite possibly the best advice I have heard in a very long time. She said to me, “Why are you keeping a six around when you could make room for a ten.” Boom! That totally made sense. Why was I taking up room in my life with someone who I knew wouldn’t be around in a year when I could use that room to let the right person in. Are you following me here? I think this is a great way of looking at things beyond dating. We only have so much room in our lives. Don’t let it get cluttered with a 6, because ladies there is a 10 waiting to come into the picture, we just need to make the space. The moral of the story is don’t settle for second best. Make room in your life for the things you want, and deserve, and then believe those things will come to you!
