You Don't Have To Keep Dating Someone Just Because They're Nice

You deserve more than just "nice."

Posted on

Sometimes we may end up dating someone we're not that crazy about, but we keep going on dates because they're "nice" to us.

But being "nice" — which really means being a decent human being — isn't in itself a reason to date someone. It's a prerequisite, not an end goal.

You should expect the people you date to be decent, kind, thoughtful people. And if they're not decent, kind, thoughtful people, don't date them! You deserve better. Know that you deserve better.

You are worthy of love, and you are especially worthy of being with someone who has more positive traits than just "niceness."

What about intelligence? Or humor! Or honesty or confidence or all of the above?!

So if you're not feeling it, and the only reason you keep dating someone is because they're nice to you, then you should probably break it off — for both of your sakes.


Don't stay with someone just because you want to be with someone, and not specifically the person you are dating.

It's not fair to them and it's not fair to you — you should be with someone you actually like! You're worth it!
