Love and Romance
You are likely to be quite happy with your own company and not really be that interested in romance. You could have duties and responsibilities that take precedence over this area of your life. You may well elect to stay home and read a good book or watch an old film and recharge your batteries rather than go out and about.
Prosperity & Opportunity
If you are frustrated where your work or career are concerned because you have had additional duties put onto you without any recognition or recompense, then could you have reached a point where you are prepared to throw it all out of the window. It may come without warning as you reach the point of no return and take everyone by surprise.
