Here are 12 ways fear interferes with love, and why you should kick it to the curb (and say yes to that relationship). Those cold-hearted a-holes.) Doesn’t that make you feel better? But ask yourself: do you want to be alone for the rest of your life? Your new boyfriend/girlfriend is not perfect, either.

Your family will still be there for you, and they will be happy for you.
But if you are afraid to enter a relationship because you are afraid of getting hurt, you are both a cliche and destined to go nowhere. But don’t make that an excuse for breaking it off if you think it can succeed and make you happy, because it might even make your relationship better.
