There are uncomfortable conversations going on all over the world at the moment. The #TimesUP movement and the treatment of women in general, the incompetency of Mr Trump and a lot of other ones. They tend to stir up fiery passions. It feels like these days it’s no longer possibly to have different points of view and have a conversation. You have to condemn and argue with the other person

On a smaller scale but on a more personal level, talk of relationships or wanting one is a conversation that makes people very uncomfortable. Of late when discussing dating or meeting people I’ve started being fairly honest and saying I’d love it to happen but I just don’t know if it ever will. Part of that is to express that sure, it’d be a shame but ultimately I can’t do anything about it so I’m just enjoying life until it changes.

When you say there are no guarantees that you’ll ever find love it freaks people the hell out. “Don’t say that! Of course you will!” they say. Oh really? How can they know? They can’t. This is why people get sad about being single. Society is so constantly saying that we can’t be happy on our own and only through a relationship can you be truly happy. WRONG!
