Asking “What if I never meet The One?” is a potentially scary, vulnerable, and often triggering question to contemplate. Imagining ourselves without The One – a romantic partner, a great love, a lifetime spouse – flies in the face of many people’s dreams and hopes for their future. It’s a possibility that, in my experience, most of us consciously and unconsciously avoid looking at and sitting with.
Let’s be honest: It’s a muddy, hard question. But what if there were gold in the mud? What if by looking at and sitting with this question there could actually be value to us and to the way we live our lives whether we’re partnered or not?
