Friendship is wonderful, if not one of the best relational starting places, if your seeking or desire a mate. However, if either party has been through some crash and burn relationships, dealing with trust issues and anxiety etc. Take a Break. Redirect your focus from just trying to find the next date or relationship.
Allow yourself time to heal and take that time to discover or rediscover yourself. Learn to love and appreciate you. Take some time read a 30-Devotional, do some Journaling, and Meditation. Speak daily words of Affirmation to set your day, then before winding down. Learn to relax, deep breathing exercises, enjoy your life, pamper and treat yourself.
A healthy relationship is made up of two whole individuals who compliment one another. So many times what happens people to often get into a relationship to fill a void. That void could be from a childhood experience, previous relationship, or issues that have not yet been dealt with that may require one to seek a medical professional help.
Whatever, the case maybe know your value and you are worth the wait. You deserve to be healthy and happy.
