Is it love, or is it just attachment?
We all have those friends who jump from relationship to relationship, and each time, they are “totally and completely in love.”
For those of us who have been single longer than two of their relationships combined, we can’t help but wonder how someone can possibly be “in love” with all these people.
I mean, come on. It’s not love. It’s fear of being alone. Right?
Yes. And no. I mean we can’t calculate love any more than we can election polls or Miley’s next erotic exorcism. It’s just something you get a feeling about.
But what if your feeling is wrong? What if you’re just so damn scared of being alone that anyone who comes close to making you feel safe and secure feels like your soulmate?
You know those relationships you got out of, and after a few months, you couldn’t believe you ever said those three beautiful words to someone you wouldn’t want to be seen with today? How could you love someone so grotesque? Someone so not your type? Someone so shallow?
