I just recently moved away from my home state to go to College. The problem that I have having in my new place comes from a lack of long-term relationships. I can't seem to stay in them for longer then about half a year, I don't know why. I just want to know what it is that people do to stay in them (I am doing what I can to fit the norm). I follow all the things that I see on TV, and from what other people do, yet, it doesn't matter in the end. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks
Don't try to fit into any norm. Just be yourself. Sooner or later you will meet someone who will like you for yourself, and vice versa. Then you will want to stay in that relationship. You can't make this happen. It just happens when you are being yourself, and it happens at the right time. Better off alone than twisted into some shape to please another person. Whitewolf was being a bit silly. I know you weren't talking about marriage.
Great advice from Crazy Dice. I'd only add the idea that giving what you want to experience to others is also a great way to increase the likelihood of receiving that back from others. For example, if you would love for someone to listen to you and hear you without judgment and with compassion, try listening to others and hearing them without judgment and with compassion. In my own experience, I have found that the old cliché which states that you reap what you sow has a fair bit of truth to it.
