Do you feel like the importance you place on a romantic partnership far outweighs all other areas of your life? Do you feel like if you don’t have a romantic partner then life is pretty meaningless? You’re not alone. I felt like this for so many years and to be honest I can sometimes still fall into this way of thinking. It has always been a dream of mine to build a life with a partner and there’s nothing wrong with that, but when I was hyper-focused on it, it did not help and probably drove it away even more.
