Sex & the Single Woman: Addicted to Relationships?

What do you do when you have the compulsive need to be in a relationship?

I think there is an entrapment when relationships happen too easily for people, because then they don’t understand how to be single. Disclaimer: I know this isn’t true for everybody in that situation, but it is for a lot of people I know.

I get it. To a certain degree, everybody wants the comfort of having a significant other, of having that physical presence in your life. But at what point do you need to become single so you can learn to grow?

So many of my friends have been in monogamous relationships, one after the other, since they were in high school. While I am happy for them, I also wonder how content they are with themselves.

When do you cut loose all of your ties and make a commitment to the relationship you have with yourself?
