It also hurts to be dating also. Besides i heard there's a good future for the single and it must be better then heartbroken and unnecessary anger. (Just  my views from relationships past. I am in no doubt being rude.)

You are definitely worth it - don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Don't feel as if you need a partner in your life right now! And nobody is a strong word. You'll find somebody someday but do give it some time. Most importantly love yourself because that's what's more important!
