The other day, I read something that really caught my attention. I’m paraphrasing but it was something like “Until you become comfortable with being alone, you will never know if you are choosing someone out of love or loneliness.” Do you agree with this?
There is something that clicked when I read it because I know that being single has its challenges, but being with the wrong person is my personal version of hell.
Perhaps it is my inner commitment phobia that causes that anxiety.
I have gone for long periods of time without a serious relationship. When I meet someone great, I feel pretty confident that I am not picking that special person because I am lonely. I have done that before and it did NOT end well. Thankfully, I can recall that awful situation every time I feel tempted to call the toxic bachelor who is a bigger commitment phobe than I am or the now married ex-boyfriend who still carries a torch.
Do you ever wonder if you are dating simply out of loneliness? Does the fear of being alone make you endure way too much unnecessary dating drama?
