And if you could step away from the fear, you would know, deep down – it’s very unlikely you’ll stay alone for the next 10 or 60 years of your life. I know it’s hard to listen to the voice of reason when emotions are shouting louder. I can’t tell you when you’ll meet your next long-term partner – but I can give you a few tips to manage that fear better. Most likely A LOT happened in your life in 2 years, let alone 10. Another reality check: if you see a lot of people around you settling down, that doesn’t mean everyone but you is hooking up, you are just noticing those people more.I do believe it’s the anxiety of not knowing “how long” that creates most of the singleness-misery, not the actual wait itself. Jobs, schools, places, friends, partners – all change. So if all those things happened then, why wouldn’t they happen in the next 10 years of your life? Try looking for single people instead – in real life, in media, anywhere you can spot them. Do that for at least few weeks, or until you have enough evidence that the world is not comprised only of couples. Yes, people in couples are not necessarily happier than you either. for another post.) Step two – change your life: put the rest of your life under control, as much as you can. And you’re not putting your life on hold while he or she arrives.I also dated 36 of them as in going on dates not necessarily girlfriends.Yes everyone is boring because I had a 2 and a half year relationship with the one a while back.If you knew the exact date in the future when you’ll meet your match, you’d probably feel pretty OK about your life right now. But since neither of us knows that, let’s see what else we can do… Step one – change your thoughts: do a reality check. That will make you feel less hopeless and helpless. The more you feel you are in control of your life – the happier you feel, the better you look, the more you smile, the more fun you have. As you do that, you’ll start attracting a much more interesting bunch of people in your life. People get drawn to your energy, liveliness, your confidence, your spark.What grounds you have to believe you will stay single? If you get what you want in other areas of life, you will feel more confident you can do it in your love life as well. If you are unhappy in your job – look for one that will make you feel better. When you feel you are in the right place, and you believe love can happen for you: the right partner will come, without a doubt.
From the very first Colombian girl I made out with to the current booty call. Looking at my experiences I’d say that I’ve always been right about relationships from the beginning.I know when I’m going to date someone and I know when its going to end.I find value in everyone no matter how boring they are. Do you force yourself to date boring people or you find everyone boring? Either just dating anyone without any criteria (36 in 12 months is a lot of girlfriends) or you have no clue what you’re looking for, and what love is.Just look at your experiences and see what they can tell you about you, that’s where you’ll start finding the real answers. Its the common denominator in all the relationships I have.I didn’t know why the last one ended but I knew it would end.I had two other relationships that lasted 2 and a half years each so I knew around the 2 and a half year mark with the most recent one that it was gonna go straight out the window. She kissed great and we enjoyed having good conversations, and 3 weeks over she rolled over in bed at 2am and told me she had herpes.
