Try a Little Tenderness

Here is some unsolicited advice to people who are single.


Seek a partner who is KIND.

Kind to you. Kind to their relatives and co-workers. Kind to wait staff, cashiers, homeless people, customer service reps, and complete strangers.

Someone who smiles when a smile is literally all they have to offer.

Someone who treats everyone equally, whether they're wearing a Rolex or somebody's cast-off clothes.

Seek a partner who accepts others' flaws (including yours) and owns theirs.

Never settle for anyone who tries to substitute wealth and status for empathy, humility, and kindness.

I'm not religious, but I do believe we all have a soul. It's where our core decency resides.

People with deformed souls definitely exist.

It's not your job to redeem them.

Hold out for kindness. If you can't find it in someone else, please embody it in yourself. You won't regret it. I promise.

Edit: This is also advice for people who are in relationships. If you are not with a kind person, leave. At least, consider leaving. You deserve more. YES YOU DO.

You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
