so many bad choices start with these words ...

"I'm afraid of ending up alone."

Good grief folks. There are WAY worse things.

Pull up your big-girl panties, learn to operate power tools, replace air filters and see the occasional movie by yourself.

Really ... it's not a bad way to live.

Relationships are great.

Relationships born out of desperation ... not so much so.

I'd like to hear about the conversation that brought about this post.

I've never seen the Bachelor ... so if it was a quote from there, I must have picked it up third hand. :)

There have been MULTIPLE conversations where I've heard people decide to ruin their lives rather than be alone.

The most recent one was a friend talking about her father's choice to live with a woman outside of marriage. He knew it was wrong, but he didn't trust her enough to marry her, but he was afraid of being alone if he didn't stick with her.

Most of the people I've heard say this were women who were marrying men who didn't share their faith.
