I have a friend who recently got out of a 1 year long relationship. Before that, she dated a guy for two years, and another guy for 2 years before THAT.
So, she’s basically been in a relationship with SOMEONE for the last 5 years. She became single just THREE WEEKS AGO and she’s already seeing another guy!
She always says at the end of these relationships that she’s going to be single for a long time- but now she’s already telling me how much she likes this guy and I can tell she’s probably going to end up dating him.
How do I convince her to just. Be. Single. She is so happy in these brief moments she has independence… but the second she starts to see someone and they’re a ‘nice person’ I think she just doesn’t have the guts to break it off and she winds up in a relationship she doesn’t totally want to be in.
