Romantic relationships can be magical, sensual, and fill us with a sense of being loved. We feel validated and on top of the world. Many of us (including the old me) dread being single because of deep-seated beliefs. Society tells us that we are better off in marriage and couple-hood; that it is the way to living happily ever after. Many of us feel that if we are alone, we might be unlovable. We are influenced that being single equals lack, so we look at our bodies, bank accounts, and job titles and feel inadequate.
