Don't be afraid of being single..

The fear of being single can lead people to settle for less ideal romantic partners and less ideal relationships. This reveals a sad paradox: those of us who most closely assocaite happiness with being in a relationship may, out of a

fear of being single, reduce their ability to find happiness within a romantic relationship. 

 While some people are distressed by their singlehood and others experience ambivalence about it, some people have a strong and positive sense of self and feel good about being single. Being single can confer a desirable degree of independence and come with strong and intimate friendships and family relations. Focusing on the social connections one has, developing one’s own interests and passions, and finding joy in the opportunities that come with being single, may help people embrace the many different ways people can live happy and healthy lives. Live your life to the best each day and embrace it.
