73% of People in Relationships Are Settling

A survey of people in relationships revealed that 73% of paired people admit that they are just settling for the person they’re with.

They’re just biding their time. They’re just “making due.”

surprisedheartThat’s pretty sad.

To add to that, 17% of people meet their soul mate when it’s too late, because they were so eager to just be married for these reasons :

– pressure from friends and family
– wanting their partner’s money
– afraid of being alone
– want the dramatics and attention of a wedding

But they don’t achieve true happiness in their unions.

Soul mates Exist
On the same television show (The Couch) the guests talked about meeting your soul mate.

Soul mates are real. I know, because I met one of mine.

A soul mate is someone you have an undeniable connection with. You meet and NEITHER of you want to part. Nothing and no one can keep you apart. You don’t have to debate or wonder how to approach or “flirt” with that person because you’re going to run right into them in some way. You’re drawn together. You have the feeling that you’ve met that person before, almost as if you’ve known them forever.

Some believe that there are “soul groups” — people who when you find them you all connect in an unimaginable way and have an amazing life experience together, whether they’re friends, business partners or your romantic partner.

Back to That 73% Figure
Knowing these honest feelings from people in relationships, if you’re a single person do you really feel the need to rush into a relationship with someone who you know deep down you’ll just be settling for?

As I explain in my dating guide, Let Him Chase YOU, it’s important to limit your time with people who are in unfulfilling relationships when you are on a mission to find your true love. That’s because paired up people who are settling will:

a) make you feel bad about being alone
b) try to pair you up with someone who may not be right for you (so that you can settle too)
c) put you on a negative energy level that isn’t right for attracting your soul mate into your life

Do you believe your soul mate is out there and waiting to meet you? If you do, like I do, don’t block that person from entering your life by filling it with someone you’re just settling for.

  1. I was engaged to a man that I was “settling” with. I also thought there was no way out. Thankfully, I made the right decision. 8 months later, I met my soul mate. Nothing could have stopped us from being together. Well written!

    • Thanks Vanessa, when it’s not right or is right you just know. Letting go is a hard decision to make at the time, but soon enough you’ll get a chance to see it’s the best one! Congrats on finding your soul mate, that’s awesome!
