As queen Rihanna will tell you, sometimes it feels like you're looking for love in a hopeless place. Whether you've just had your fifth terribly bad first date in a row or you're starting to get a little cynical about finding the right relationship for you — looking for love can sometimes feel like an extra full-time job in and of itself, with lots of unpaid overtime and no benefits. Of course, dating can be fun. Trying new places to eat or getting all dressed up to meet a new cutie can be an exciting part of being young. Or old. Or any age. Finding love runs on its own timeline, and sometimes, your journey looks different than your friend's, your mom's, or even the person you end up dating.
If you're looking for love and starting to lose some steam, reciting some daily positive affirmations to yourself can be a super great way to get you feeling flirty and fun. Hearing your own voice and repeating positive thoughts can break any negative thought patterns that may have formed from heartbreak or bad first dates.
And if you're looking for love, repeating these 15 daily affirmations can be totally healing.
