I believe single-hood makes attached people anxious, because they want someone to be there for us. I just don't believe people who aren't in love, are automatically alone.
This easy, immediate exposure to dating opportunities cultivates a delusional worry that there's always someone else -- nay, someone better! -- to message and meet tomorrow. Right? Wrong.
Q: Have you ever noticed that you can be dating someone for many months, but the relationship is still referred to as "casual"? I don't know how to get past this stage without appearing like I'm dying to get married.
