“I’m taking a break from dating right now.” “I’m really busy with my career.” “I don’t know too many happily married people.” “I really like my independence.” It’s not that these stories are definitively untrue; it’s that they don’t come close to telling the full story.Which is that you use all of these examples to justify why you choose not to be vulnerable and partner up with someone – and sure enough, you never partner up with someone. Fact is, if you want to fall in love, it’s there for the taking.

Most people don’t identify themselves as “afraid” of finding a relationship.
They couch their singledom in other terms so that it doesn’t sound like a cop-out.
