Can’t decide which one you are? Here are some signs you may be addicted to relationships and advice on how to learn to love being alone.
1. You can’t remember the last time you were single.
Even since grade school, you’ve always found yourself more interested in who your weekly crush was rather than what games people were playing in the school yard. You can try to think back to a time when you were alone, but chances are it wasn’t by choice.
Kim Olver, life, relationship and executive coach, further elaborates, “In my work, I find there are two main reasons college women are more interested in relationships than dating. The first one is that they have a higher need for love and belonging and do not find superficial relationships need-satisfying. They prefer commitment to the casual.” We know how valuable your free time is, so it makes sense to be selective with whom you spend it with.
