Three Most Common Lies About Dating We Tell Ourselves
1. Love would work for everyone except me: you may not really use these words just the way I have used them here on yourself, they may not really be like this for some people as they are the reason why some people are constantly afraid of getting into a relationship. I know how this feels because I have been there before. You just feel like your destiny is to stay out of love while every other person enjoys its beauty. Don’t be surprised because you are not the only one that has had this feeling as there are thousands of other people out there who have similar thoughts too. The solution to this feeling is to turn the table around this time to your favor by telling yourself that this is a lie and you are not afraid and that you too can get someone to fall in love with you. That’s one of the ways you can get rid of this feeling before it gets rid of love from your life and stops you from ever getting into a relationship.

And the funny thing to this people is that the present relationship is not smooth but they’ll rather hang on even when it hurts real badly.
