When you have been single for so long, you begin to fear that you will never find “The One.” It is tricky, as people believe you must be okay with yourself first and not be desperate to get into a relationship.
Fun fact, I found out that people in relationships sometimes feel lonely too. For some people, loneliness comes and goes. For others, it never leaves. It’s understandable, though. When you’re single, there’s a lack of intimacy.
When one is in a healthy relationship, you have a partner, a best friend, a motivator, a confidante, and a playmate. You have all of this and more in one person. When you are single, the reverse is the case.
I used to think women were the only ones who faced pressure from family and society. That’s fake news because men do, too. Someone laments: “It’s just the pressure from my parents and family members on when I’m gonna get married or find a significant other.”
