A lot of single people are going to be faced with pushy relatives this holiday season. The ones that always want to comment on the fact that you are still unmarried. I think that the general consensus is that a lot of them think that single people are really just afraid to settle down.
There may be some truth to this. I think a lot of us are. I just wonder how much of our fear of settling down is real and how much is fantasy. What do we really think about being with the same person for the rest of our lives?
We hear horror stories about marriage and long term commitment, but we also hear (and live through) horror stories about dating! Why do you think we let that stop us?
Are you afraid to settle down? What is your biggest fear about it? Where did this fear come from?
How do we know if what we are concerned about the most is real or our imagination?
