Why do we put so much effort into the relationships we have? Since the beginning of time, people have been fascinated by the answer to this question. We all cherish the feeling that comes with being joined to another person. We are social creatures, and it is seemingly difficult for us to function when we are by ourselves. We are conditioned to believe that when we are alone, there must be something wrong with us, that we are flawed, weird, or undeserving. This conditioning comes from society, family, and culture. We are encouraged by these factors, among others, to enter into romantic partnerships and maintain them, and it is expected of us that these partnerships will bring us joy. But what if we are not always aware of the reasons why we are attracted to the people we are and the motivation to get involved in a relationship with them?
