We have got to get rid of the stigma of loneliness. Solitude isn’t as bad as people make it out to be and there are lots of individuals who relish in some good old alone time. In fact, there is no denying that a lot of us will be pathetic enough to persist in bad and destructive relationships out of fear of being alone.

2. I don’t fear eating at a restaurant alone, I fear having to endure a boring conversation with someone over dinner.

Dining alone really isn’t going to be an issue with me. What I dread the most is having to put up with a boring date with whom I share nothing in common. I can only endure so much small talk.

3. I don’t fear not getting some action in the bedroom, I fear a bad sexual experience.

Again, as previously stated, all sexual encounters should be magical experiences. Anything less than magical would be a severe disappointment. I can get my pleasure from other aspects of life. - Continue reading on the next page
