1. Because you feel like you’re at an age where you should be settled down. There isn’t a specific age when you’re supposed to be married with a mortgage. Some people are going to find the love of their life straight out of high school, and others aren’t going to meet their soulmates until they’re in their thirties or forties. Hitting milestones earlier isn’t as impressive as you think. You’ll reach them when the time is right.
2. Because you feel like you’re unlovable unless someone is currently loving you. Your relationship status doesn’t determine your worth. There are plenty of people who would love to date you, and plenty of people who have dated you in the past, so you know for a fact you aren’t unlovable. You aren’t going to be alone forever. Those are only lies you’re telling yourself because your loneliness is playing tricks on you.
