From time to time, I get sent emails asking for advice. Although I love to have an opinion (just ask my parents), I can’t even pretend to have all the answers. So, I’m going to turn this to you. With this reader’s permission (and any too personal details, like names, changed), I’ve published the reader’s email below. What do you guys think this dude should do?
Long time reader, first time writer! Haha!
I’ve been single for a couple years. I was definitely dating. Some more consistently than others. But I was single.
I just met someone amazing. She’s all the things I’ve been looking for.
BUT, I’m so used to being single. I just have single habits now. For example, it’s really hard for me to just go home after work or when it gets late or whatever. I didn’t have a reason to go home before!
Do you have any advice on how to get comfortable with being in a relationship again?
Love your blog. You seem like such a cool, fun person! I relate to your writing.
Thanks again for the help,
Mr. Pretend Name
What do you guys think? How do you transition from longterm single living to being relationship minded? Have you ever felt like this before?
