Afraid Of Being Happy

Who would have thought that there are people out there who are afraid of being happy? It is not to say that people do not want to enjoy feeling great and smiling throughout the day but some fear that their new found happiness may be taken away. I guess what I am trying to say is that I am afraid of being happy about the potential of a new found relationship because I may jinx myself. Sounds silly right? I know…

Love can always be scary especially when you do not know what to expect. Love is definitely scary for those of us who have been out of the game for a while because we may be a little rusty to the dating game and all that it entails. I can’t speak for everyone but what scares me the most is being happy about something and then it all goes to shits before you even find out what his favorite color is. Oh and let’s not even talk about how you finally thought you were going to start getting dick on the regular. Now you have to start back buying batteries. I mean true you can at least say you gave love a try but fuck all of that, I want it all. Personally I get tired of the trial period type of love life. You know how you sign up for a free trial of a service and by the time you get used to it you forget that it is only free for a certain amount of time and then you have to cancel before the company starts to charge? Well that’s how I feel about dating. It’s like you get used to something, it feels good for a while and the BOOM…it’s like it never existed.

For some dating is fun and for others it is quite stressful. I think some are afraid of being happy because they know that what they have may not last. After a certain age no one wants to keep getting their hopes up just to end up being alone again but at the same time we know that you may never find love if you don’t try. What is your biggest fear when it comes to dating and how do you deal with it?

Sincerely,
The Single B*tch
