I’m reading a book called “Wired for Dating.” It basically says, people need other people to be happy, and you don’t know who you are if you’re not interfacing with other people. And not just casually: intimately.
But then you have this other side, which says that you should be able to be happy being alone. This is a very attractive idea, and a lot of people really want it to be true. So you have book like
Which encourage people to be alone and tell them they should be happy being alone. But it’s like… hey, if you were happy, why are you reading this book in the first place? I think it’s a temporary comfort. In the long run, the biology will take over, and you’ll get sick of being alone.
