Are you happier when you are in a relationship?
I am successful in most aspects of my life, from friends, to my career and the opportunities I have built for myself. Unfortunately, I am one of those women that are plagued by the feeling that being in a relationship is much better than not being in one. I like looking forward to being with a special person, and having someone to communicate with on a daily basis.
I am awful at dating. I fall in love too quickly and I have yet to meet someone who appears to share this enthusiasm about me. It irritates me to no end that I want someone to such an extent, while in other aspects of my life I am independent, ambitious, and confident.
Why are you happier in a relationship? Have you ever felt this way? How have you dealt with the feeling of being alone?
