Why people stay in BTN relationships
According to dating coach and author Demi Paterson, when it comes to love, people often stay in “better-than-nothing” relationships because they’re afraid of being alone. The idea that committing to someone who isn’t perfect is far less scary than going solo can be amplified by telling themselves that they can change their partners or that they’ll change over time.
