"Wait for love to come naturally" is an outdated advice created to keep you powerless and confused about your love life. So many powerful high-achieving women fall for this advice although they feel empowered to go after many other desires.
I understand why you fall for this. This message that we should keep ourselves lovely and waiting has been repeated to us for centuries. Even some modern relationship educators tend to repeat this.

Following this advice could be the reason that you didn’t have a date for months.
Why shouldn't you follow this advice?
If “wait for love to come to you” was the right thing to do, we wouldn’t have so many lonely people waiting and waiting.

If love is super important to you, are you gonna just leave it to chance? Of course not. There is a much better way to do it. What is it?
