Meeting someone new means needing to explain stuff about yourself and your life: whether you love your career or dream of something else, if you’re close with your family, if you’re generally happy with your situation.If you date for six months, the other person might break up with you.This freaks you out so much you’d rather keep things status quo for as long as possible. It is kind of an excuse, but you also really believe it. But think about whether anything in your calendar can change so you can go on a date if you really want to.

It's time to ask yourself the tough questions in order to get to the root of why it is that you're preventing yourself from falling in love and having this rewarding experience.You have a job you love, an amazing family and close friends, and that’s enough.
