Love yourself. Enjoy your own company. There will still be times when you feel lonely and miss companionship though, but it passes when you're happy in your own skin
I'm terrified of growing older,... that's why I want to make new friends now before it's " too late " :(
You can't hurry love, you just have to wait
Coming from someone who has never dated
Personally, I want to work on myself first.
Just use the time to work on yourself. Cultivate your other relationships, friends and family. Engage in your favorite hobbies and improve your skills. Reflect on life. Eat pizza and ice cream then sleep it off. Say yes to opportunities. Just discover yourself and enjoy being free.
In my culture we don't date. We go through the courtship process instead, which is a prerequisite for marriage.
Muslim in the Nation of Islam
There are Muslims from all walks of life and from different cultures. In my Islamic culture, we court instead of date.
Focus on yourself and don't let others control your emotions.
