This is for the ones who don’t love just for fun! For the hopeless romantics who can’t seem to get it right when it comes to love. After all the mistakes and chances, combined with the tears and pints of ice cream that you’ve gone through, your heart can become weathered by what love’s done to you. We know it’s not always easy to believe in love, especially in this hook-up generation.
So maybe 2016 wasn’t the year of love for you…don’t give up just yet! What better way to start the year than with the belief that you’re going to find your soulmate this time around? Ladies, although the journey of the single woman can be tedious, you have to stay inspired and never give up on finding true love! So here’s seven inspirational quotes for all the ladies that are starting this new year single:
“To those who have given up on love, I say, ‘trust life a little bit’….love is like a virus… it can happen to anybody at any time.” -Maya Angelou
“If you won’t use your heart, who cares if it gets broken? If you just keep it to yourself, maybe it’ll be like my rollerblades. When you do decide to try it, it won’t be any good. You should take a chance. Got nothing to lose…your heart might still be broken, but it isn’t gone. If it was gone, you wouldn’t be so nice.” -Kevin McCallister, Home Alone 2
“Have enough courage to trust love one more time, and always one more time.” -Maya Angelou
“Be brave, my sweet. I know you can get lonely. I know you can crave companionship and sex and love so badly that it physically hurts. But I truly believe that the only way you can find out that there’s something better out there is to first BELIEVE there’s something better out there.” -Greg Behrendt, He’s Just Not That Into You
“Single is no longer a lack of options—but a choice. A choice to refuse to let your life be defined by your relationship status but to live every day happily and let your ever after work itself out.” -Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass.
“One day someone will be 100% honest with you, and will love you forever. Don’t give up trying to find them, they are looking for you.”- Unknown
“When love is lost, do not bow your head in sadness! Instead, keep your head up high and gaze into heaven for that is where your broken heart has been sent to heal. You’ll heal, and you’ll find love again.” -Unknown
Ladies, it’s best to believe in the spirit of love at all times. We hope these quotes will keep all the single ladies hopeful about love throughout the entire year! So be an inspiration to others and share this list with all the single women in your life. Most importantly, remember that being a hopeless romantic has nothing to do with you being hopeless, and everything to do with you being hopeful in love.
