Forcing Myself to Be Single

I've almost always had a boyfriend since I was 12.  From my first kiss to last night, I've never been "single" for more than a few weeks.  I'm no closer to marrying my current boyfriend than I was 12 year-old Rudy.  I've had 2 relationships that lasted for more than year, and one that went fpr almost 3 years.  Most only last a few months.  As soon as one ends I start dating and as soon as I start dating I always get serious.  

I worry sometimes that I'm afraid to be alone and that I should learn how to be.  I'm dating a nice-enough guy now but I know there's nothing long, long term in it.  I think about breaking up with him and forcing myself to be single for a while. It's got to be good for me. {end story}|

You think it'd be good for the writer to spend some time "alone"?  Why (or why not)?

    I am wondering why you think it’s “got to be good for [you]” to be single. Did a lot of people tell you that? I think it’s more important that you figure out WHY you want to be in relationships all the time rather than force yourself to be alone. Just my opinion.

    My opinion is a little different. I think being single for a while is good for everyone. It’s kind of like traveling abroad during college. Every one should give it a try.

    Are you afraid to be by yourself? You should look at that.
