10 Reasons Why You Are Still Single (Part 2)

In our last post 10 Reasons Why You Are Still Single (Part 1), we had a few thoughts. And do we have more to say! Here are 10 more coming your way. 1. You’d rather feel alone than overcome your shyness. You want to belong, but you’re terrified of rejection. You see the social arena as a deep dark sea of dragonroachsharks that will bite you as soon as they sense the slightest hint of awkwardness or shyness. You are at a party in a room full of bright and beautiful people, and all you want to do is go home and tuck yourself under the duvet. You haven’t quite mastered the idea of “being in the moment.” 2. You don’t take things easy. Basically you allow yourself to be a doormat. At one point, some guy lends you a little bit of attention and you’re all over him like he is the pepperoni to your pizza or the meatball to your spaghetti. After two dates, he decides he’s not so into you after all. But …

10 Reasons Why You Are Still Single (Part 1)

Being single is a very normal thing. We have all been there at one point or another. It’s plenty common. Like having brown eyes. Or knowing how to blink with one eye. Neither bad nor good, right nor wrong, it just is.

I don’t believe in dating just anyone and everyone that comes your way. Or worse, dating unkind, selfish douchebags, intentionally. But as with any relationship, we take risks, some more calculated than others. They say to date someone who brings out the best in you. Yes, I don’t think anyone would disagree. Except, finding someone, that one person, who could do that in your life can feel like digging for a needle in a haystack. Which is why dating is a trial and error period in which both partners learn to cope, live, and laugh with each other and see where the relationship takes them. So how can dating someone who brings out the worst in you be a good thing, ever? Okay, please keep in mind when I say “worst” I don’t mean that dating this person leads you to doing drugs or committing crimes and that either of that is a good thing. What I mean is, in your relationship with this person, it isn’t sunshine and butterflies every single day. Or grilled …
