Why Does It Seem Like Some People Are Always In A Relationship
Maybe they are: I imagine you're referring to romantic relationships? Some people just don't like being alone. Actually, we're all "in relationship" all the time, even if not in the outer world.

To a degree but...: If your happiness is dependent on a relationship then yes, this is dependent, but also very common. Everyone likes being loved and mattering to someone. My concern is you say you're ONLY happy when in relationship; it's mentally healthier to not be dependent on external things for happiness but most in our culture are.

Why does feeling down make me anxious about my relationship. It's like I look for things and assume it must be that?
ANSWER: Humans can't stand not knowing and the future is always unknown. It's like a blank movie screen and we're like projectors. (we feel better thinking we know something!) so we project the things we worry about - the threats, bad stuff. We generally don't project good stuff. Then we believe it. Know what you're doing with your mind. Know what I said and don't presume projections are reality. ...Read more
