I want to be single but I love him
I am 20 years old and have been dating the same guy since (2 1/2 years). He is a great person and I do love him, % trust him, same goes for him (vise- versa). Never have we ever been in a serious fight or violent action. For awhile now I have been thinking a lot about how I want to be single. I am 21 and we have been together for 2 and a half years. He is amazing and I really do love him but I want to be single. We started dating when I was 18 and I just never real had the "college" single experience. I don't regret him at all but I know there is no way to stay with him and be single at the same time. He has already. 16 Jul I felt a little guilty about giving them my number because he doesn't deserve that but in the moment I didn't feel bad about it or hesitate to do so. My boyfriend is a great guy but I'm feeling like I love him but I'm not in love with him, if that makes sense. But when were together I don't have these doubts, I'm not.
In fact the guy in the fall was a safe way to restore my confidence and learn more about myself and what I want. I have found the last few months refreshing to have nobody that demands my attention. My interest in people lasts for a brief blink before I remember how much I am loving being on my own… but as the world works you never find something if you are looking.

As I have been completely and utterly not-looking-for-anything. I have naturally stumbled upon something. I have consequently started liking someone and in turn I am just as shocked about it as I feel threatened by it.
To be or not to be... single?
It is such a strange concept feeling like you want to be with someone, but simultaneously feeling your independence threatened. At this age entering a relationship seems so much more important than it did say four years ago. While I am so happy for every single one of my friends that is happily on the path towards marriage…In my current mindset I cannot fathom one person forever.
I have kept my heart closed off for the sole purpose of not meeting someone so early. I have a fear of being stuck because I felt so stuck in my previous relationship. I want to let my heart run rampant with him and to embrace the feelings I have, but some part of me is clouding everything with fears that once were not there.
Are you willing to risk losing your partner forever? It was the hardest thing I had ever done, but it was completely necessary. I have kept my heart closed off for the sole purpose of not meeting someone so early. I wanted to meet guys, flirt with any guy I liked without having to think twice or feel guilty.

The other night in my drunken state I got to the point that continuing the night out was unlikely, in fact the toilet bowl with my face in it was where I needed to be.
Despite my efforts to literally run away…in six inch heels, he took me home, he took care of me and I woke up with band-aids on my knees from tripping during my escape attempt.
I believe we call what I was doing — pushing someone away. Pushing someone away while all you want to do is be with them is quite possibly the most ironic phase I have ever been in. I think everyone has a quote that has ignited something within them — a quote that has stirred their heart and inspired their creativity.

A good quote can make me write for hours, I think that is why I find reading so integral when it comes to art. It opens up the worlds inside of you.
I have naturally stumbled upon something. Finding compatibility and love for someone is not easy, people spend many years doing it, don't take him for granted. If you really can't deal with it then you need to take a break but be absolutely clear that the rules are no dating! Ever heard that line, weddings make people feel more romantic?
