If you’re anything like me, my desire for a relationship increases around the holidays. Christmas, New Years, then Valentine’s day shortly afterwards can seem like a brutal time for the single person.

Sometimes, it can get incredibly lonely.
So how to keep from getting desperate? From falling back into a bad relationship, or finding a new bad one simply as a cure for loneliness? That’s one of the hardest parts about recovering from an abusive relationship and an abusive past; waiting for the right person for the future.
