Psychological studies have shown that single people tend to see happy couples everywhere regardless of the situation – shopping for groceries, wandering around in the mall, walking out their dog or just taking a strode down the street.
Studies have also shown that taken people who already have a girlfriend or a boyfriend, tend to see happy single people.
Why is it that these types of people appear to emerge from thin air everywhere? Why do taken people see the happy single ones? Some studies have proven that they are jealous of the fact that others could be happy even when they are single.
However, the single ones seem to find couples have what they lack in the first place – a partnership in order to make them happy and content.
Have you ever heard the expression “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence”? It’s not clear if everyone in this case is seeing what they’re seeing because of unconscious jealousy or not, but sometimes envy is the reason.
