No one’s happiness should depend on how much attention they get from the gender they’re attracted to
In society nowadays, it is highly suggested that having a significant other / several significant others / admirers are the keys to happiness. I’ve been in so many situations where a person feels like they NEED someone swooning after them to be seen as important due to self insecurities. We as people should realize that sexual attention from other people does not strengthen our worth, but is just apart of life. Also, we need to stop putting other people down because they do not have an interest in getting or just don’t have sexual attention from others. I’m not saying that having a significant other or being sexually active is wrong, I’m stating that depending on that to make oneself happy and putting others down because they don’t feel the same way is wrong.
For example (I’m going to be using a heterosexual relationship in this case), some women feel that they absolutely must have a boyfriend so they can show everyone that someone pays attention to them. This is mostly because they have serious insecurities that they think can disappear if they get a mate, yet that is clearly untrue. Some women, when they get that mate/mates/admirers, tend to value themselves over people who don’t get that kind of attention and make fun of that person because of it which is only making their insecurities more prominent.
I am a person who does not desire as much sexual attention as some people because I am very picky when it comes to a partner and I have found that working to deal with my insecurities is much more beneficial than masking them with a mate. Yet, I have been in many friendships where a certain friend targets other independent friends and I because we do not have such interests while that friend constantly seeks sexual attention in order to hide her insecurities and value herself before others.
Again, I’m not saying that being sexually active is a bad thing, I’m just saying that depending on it to have a joyful life isn’t the right way to go about things. We as a culture, should stop promoting the dire need of a partner and instead promote people to deal with their insecurities and be proud of them. We need to encourage people to work for success and know that a significant other may come along, but isn’t a must. We should all support each other no matter what our relationship status may be and know that we are all amazing creatures, with or without sexual attention.
So in essence, you’re perfect the way you are and you don’t need a significant other to tell you that if you can tell yourself that instead
Spread peace, love, understanding, equality, and true happiness

Theres just no going back. I have become submerged into the fandom.
I always wondered what would happen if these two one-eyed megalomaniacs ever met.
I bet a lot of swearing would be involved.
