9 Things You Need To Know Before Dating The Girl Who has Always Been Single

1. She is her own person.

You arent her other half; she is her own whole person. She doesnt need you to hold her hand when she crosses the street, she doesnt need you to buy her things just because shes interested in them, and she doesnt need you checking up on her every minute of the day. But that doesnt mean she wont ever want you too, she just used to doing everything on her own.

2. She has an incredible support system.

She hasnt had to focus her time on anyone specific, so she invests it into her friends and family. She always lends a hand when they need and is there for them, just like they are for her. By coming into her life you are added to her endless loving support system, but you are not the base of it.

3. She is a passionate and dedicated person.

Being single has led her to so many amazing opportunities that she has been able to focus her time on. Whether it is work, a hobby, a sport, or something that just makes her happy, she has a passion for whatever it is. You cant expect her to give it up now just because youre in her life. If youre in her life, its because she wants you there so she will work on the balance and sharing her passion with you.

4. Her love was never limited.

She loves so much, even before you. She has her family and friends, co-workers and pets, even if its not the romantic love she was never limited. She loves her life and that fills her heart, but she will always make room for new love because love is not limited.

5. She doesnt need to be saved.

She doesnt need you to swoop into her life and be her knight in shining armor. She has been on her own long enough to know how to do things for herself. Dont try to overpower her and treat her like she needs help with everything because it wont turn out well in your favor.

6. Shes worried about pushing you away.

Shes had plenty of people come into her life and leave unannounced. She might have feelings about certain things that she will compress until she is more comfortable around you because she doesnt want to turn you off.

7. She understands relationships, the good, the bad and the ugly.

She might not have been in many relationships, but that doesnt mean she doesnt know anything about them. Her friends come to her for everything. Shes seen her friends cry over their significant others cheating and shes seen her friends smile ear to ear over the nice thing their significant others did. Shes also seen her friends go through the unnecessary drama of relationships that should have been over months ago. Just because she isnt in her own relationships doesnt mean she doesnt understand what they should and shouldnt be like.

8. She enjoys her alone time.

Shes used to spending time on her own, its not a bad thing, its just become her comfort. Dont take it personally if she wants to spend a night by herself, she just isnt used to being with someone all the time.

9. She doesnt want to rush things.

She knows too well what it feels like to have someone there, then before she knows it theyre gone. She wants to make sure that she ready for you, and youre ready for her. She might be hesitant at first, but if youre serious then she will start showing you her love.
