  1. I see this is an old show but I found myself relating to caller #2, Dorrie. I also wonder the same things, and for me it is fear of not wanting to give up my life to be controlled or to play Suzy homemaker for another person. I think it is a matter of finding the right person, and at the right time. She may not be ready now, but in future things can change. I am not interested in most men, but occasionally, if there is a ‘possibility’ then I become interested. God is in charge of relationships. If you are not interested, then I feel that’s the way it should stay. One should not have to force a relationship when you are not interested.
