Definitely prefer to be in a relationship.
I’ve spent a large majority of my life in a relationship. I tend to fall in love, fall hard and stay in love for a really long time. I believe the term is “serial monogamist“. The longest I’ve ever had between relationships was 8 months!
My first relationship was 2 years long at 13 years old. Alfie and I dated for about 6 years when I was 16 years old. And The Boyfriend and I have been together coming up on 11 years and we started dating when I was about 21 years old.
So in total, I’ve spent 19 of my 32 years in a relationship.
