Waking up every morning to a new day should be something you look forward to.

Perhaps something miraculous will happen to you at the least expected moment. Perhaps that test you've been stressing out for the past week won't be as hard as you imagined it to be. Perhaps your day will be just as amazing as you are.

Sadly, in our millennial culture today, we instead look forward to waking up every morning…to a Good Morning text from our significant others.

I know, it's different from any other "Good Morning" you get.

It's not the same from the one you get from a bus driver on your morning commute, from a coworker at the beginning of a morning shift or from a professor when he starts his 9am lecture.

Granted, a Good Morning text is like an indirect sign of respect. Something that makes us feel warm and fuzzy inside because let's face it—we all want to be thought of and cared about. We all want a boy who wakes up every morning to groggily rub his eyes while typing that "Good Morning, How'd you sleep" text for you.

It makes us feel loved and appreciated. That someone, somewhere out there believes in me and is wishing me (yes, plain old me) a blessed morning. Sometimes it makes all the difference in the world...

Instant gratification. Something that not even coffee can make up for.

I once fell victim to this trap hole of a mood killer. In fact, I personally thought that my day officially didn't start until this boy's did. I looked forward to it every morning from the moment I woke up, got dressed for the day and sat through lecture/work. I, too, once felt that instant tug at my heart when my phone lit up with that notification. Anything bad that already happened in my day would just vanish with those two words.

Great, I would think. My day is now beginning.

But when things turned sour in the relationship, and we parted ways, I felt more empty inside without that daily Good Morning text. I already felt hurt, lonely and betrayed but on top of that—I woke up believing that my day was already going to be awful, before it even started.

Call me crazy. (Because I am) But I just missed having someone to lighten up my gloomy day with something as simple and minuscule as a text.

Not anymore. Why? Because I've realized I'm worth more than what I thought I meant to this particular boy and I know that my day is worth more than what a simple text message can make of it.

So, for those of you like me who didn't have that special someone to tell you "Good Morning" today, I want you to know this.

First and foremost: You deserve to have a good day today. Not just a "Good Morning", but a wonderful one where things will turn out how you want them. Regardless of who's thinking of you this morning and who's waking up from a dream about you, that will not change how your day is going to start.

I hope your morning coffee is made just the way you like it.

That your morning commute is less of a headache and more of an enjoyment.

I hope that the test you studied for won't be as hard as you expected, and that the essay you're about to turn in will be appreciated for the hard work it was put into.

I hope that you won't anxiously stare at your phone the whole morning waiting for it to light up because it won't.

I hope you find your self worth and appreciation in something other than two words on a text message projected on a screen.

Just because someone isn't around you to appreciate all your beauty and flaws, it does not mean you don't deserve happiness and joy in your day. Trust me—there's more to love than that. There's more that a special someone can offer to you, when the time is right.

So get out there, and be the queen you are.

Conquer your day and assure yourself:

It's going to be a good morning today.

7 Signs Your Single Friend Might Be Better At Dating Than You

They might be dating geniuses and you don't even know it.

225

We all have a go-to friend who gives THE BEST dating advice. Somehow, whether they're single or in a relationship, they always know just what to say. Pretty soon, you can't help but wonder if your single friend might actually be better at dating than you...

1. Their advice is the best and you ask for it quite often.

Don't get me wrong here, asking for advice to someone is always a good thing because others may offer a clearer and more objective perspective of your relationship problems. However, if you are constantly recurring to the same person in order to get advice and that person happens to be your single friend, then you're probably not the best at making your own decisions like he or she might be.

2. They are more selective than you are.

Sometimes if you stop and wonder why they are not dating a lot or anyone for that matter, you may think they are either weird or questioning their own sexuality. Truth is, they're actually just looking for a person they know they can have a long and stable relationship with, and as you may know, those are kinda hard to come by.

They don't simply try to date anybody they've just met because they know their chances of making it work are slimmer than dating a person they know well. In short, they are more selective because they know what they want whereas you may not just yet.

3. They helped you find your current girlfriend/boyfriend.

Because they also probably know you better than you know yourself, they are also the best wingmen or real-life Tinder matchers. More likely than not, they probably helped you or contributed to finding your current lover. They might have helped you choose between one person or another or they might have simply made a suggestion on why you should date someone and you went ahead and followed it.

If you think about it, I'm sure you might remember a time or two when they were right in those kinds of situations.

4. They are not clingy.

After dating several people for a while and having experienced a lot of things, it is almost inevitable that sometimes negative thoughts will pop-up in your mind such as jealousy, the possibility that your counterpart might be cheating on you, or the need to do everything with them because you don't want to lose them. This sense of attachment and fear of losing your counterpart might suggest you to be with your couple all the time.

But in reality, giving each other space to breathe is essential, especially if you want to have a good relationship. Your single friend probably understands this concept better than you because since he or she has been alone for a long time, he or she probably values his or her time alone more than you do, making them less susceptible to be clingy.

They know that balance is key.

5. They are better at learning from their own mistakes than you.

If you think about it, dating is a constant cycle that revolves around screwing up and then making up. For this reason, when you're in a relationship, you always get the chance to always keep learning from the mistakes you make—whether that is by not dating someone who's crazy like you did in the past, or by not letting your significant other be too controlling or manipulating.

However, for some reason or another, your single friend seems to never fall for the same thing twice. This most likely means they learned something and they are probably going to take more precautions when considering other dating prospects. By the way, this also explains why they tend to be more selective.

6. They are more independent.

Don't know if you have heard this before but usually, people who are more independent and confident are overall more attractive than those who are not. Knowing how to be independent is a key characteristic in both life and dating. But when you've been dating a little too much and have not spent some time alone, you're probably lacking in this area. Mainly because by dating too much you can unconsciously develop a feeling of dependence upon someone else that your single friend most like does not have.

7. They understand timing and its effects.

If you have dated multiple people you probably know what I am talking about. At times you may find yourself in a situation where you seemingly find the ideal person to date but you can't because you either live far away from each other or either one of you is going through a situation that is not allowing you to date. This problem is quite relevant among relationships but a lot of people foolishly chose to date anyway while knowing they will probably won't be able to hold a sane relationship.

Single people, including your friend/s, have probably seen how this affects other people's relationships and they want to take no part of that. Thus, they avoid going for those kinds of relationships altogether because they rather invest their time in something that has greater chances of working out.
