Traditional dating advice has not evolved to reflect the changing dynamics of modern independent women, who are less fixated on marriage and children. Many women are discovering the benefits of being single, using this time for personal growth and exploring different facets of love. While loneliness may still be present, departing from outdated dating advice allows us to prioritize self-love and independence, reducing reliance on others for happiness. Speak to yourself as if you were speaking to a beloved friend. Self-compassion holds significant value as a personal characteristic. Nurturing yourself with kindness will enhance your self-connection and subsequently improve relationships, including romantic ones. To practice self-compassion, envision your emotions in a situation of sadness, loneliness, or exclusion as those of your best friend, and offer yourself the same comfort you would provide to that friend.
