Why Entitlement is Ruining Your Dating Life

However, what turns our excitement into sadness is the uncertainty and confusion of our singleness.

We tend to get disappointed when we don’t reach or attain the level of perfection that we want. There’s one thing that becomes very clear when this happens–our insecurities set in.
