Appreciate this perspective on singleness! I think that a popular misconception is that when you find a relationship, your problems will magically disappear. However, I can tell you from personal experience as a couples therapist, relationships often bring their own set of new and incredibly complicated problems, and yours do not disappear! But I also feel for people who have values to be in relationship/start a family...what do you suggest for those struggling with this element of singleness?
