Done Being Single

Is ‘Good Enough’ Good Enough?

April 14, 2018

The Rolling Stones once said: “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometime, you find you get what you need.” But when you’re single and dating, can you get what you need without settling? Is even a little settling too much? How do you keep your bar raised, your standards high, and still be realistic? The real truth is, you get what you need when you stop searching, and start settling. Settling isn’t a dirty word, it’s just misunderstood. On this week’s episode of DONE BEING SINGLE, we’re inviting Lori Gottlieb, psychotherapist and author of the New York Times bestseller, “MARRY HIM: The Case For Marrying Mr. Good Enough,” to put a different spin on settling. And she should know—she wrote the book on it.
