Ive been so obsessed and lonely since I was a kid. I’ve never even kissed a girl never mind dated and I’m 23 now. I’ve heard so many times that “You need to be happy with yourself, focus on your and someone will come, you find someone when you aren’t looking” and I’ve put these into practice of course. And sometimes the craving does subside and I’m content with my life but it does not last. So I’m asking is if everyone here try believes that they can be truly content and happy and complete while single for the rest of their lives ? Maybe it might be just me because of my temperament, I’m very affectionate person so it’s much harder for me. But honestly what do you guys think ? I’m not here to judge, I’m feeling half and half at the moment. One part of me believes we could be but it takes an incredible amount of work. My other half beliefs we can still be happy single but that craving for a partner will always be there because it is part of our most basic needs.
