If you’ve never really been alone–and I mean really truly alone with not even a guy you’re flirting with over text or a crush you’re pursuing–you probably tell everyone that you’ve just been lucky enough to meet plenty of great men. But the truth is that MOST people are not compatible. Just based on the statistics, you couldn’t possibly have been compatible with enough men to have a boo every few months or even every year for a decade. Your brain is filling in some gaps and telling you you’re compatible with those men so you can justify not being alone. Now the question is, why does your brain desperately need to fill in those gaps? Here are reasons you can’t be alone.

They will genuinely invest in your life and care about you. But if you haven’t nurtured those friendships, you could look for them in relationships.
