Only children will spend a lot of time on their lonesome.No parent has time to spend all day with his or her child and wouldn’t choose to do so even if he or she did; parents want some time to themselves just like every other person.They crave attention, require their freedom and are quick to get up and leave if it means protecting their egos. They are hard to convince to open up to you and trust you.They will often refuse to allow themselves to or admit that they love you. Not that they don’t want to, but often find difficulty in doing so.But it isn’t just only child women -- it’s men just the same.Only children can be difficult people to date, but at the same time, the relationship can prove to be incredibly rewarding. Which can be both great and terrible at the same time.They have a need for attention, and if they can’t get it by making friends, they find other ways to get it.Everybody likes a bit of attention, but only children tend to crave it more.
Some parents get along incredibly well with their children, building strong bonds and a healthy level of trust. I dated an only child, who had a great relationship with her father but a horrible one with her mother.
He or she won’t give you the attention you want when you want it -- unless, of course, what he or she wants is to give it to you.
When he or she needs space, he or she will take it.
Not all people get along -- not even if that person is your parent or child.
Then you have those parent-child relationships that are way too close for comfort.
These only children rely on their parents for much longer than average, often never being able to psychologically detach themselves from that dependency.
