Someone asked me why I haven’t dated anyone. My response was that I am not getting into a relationship, until I think I can handle marriage. In my eyes when you decide to begin a relationship with someone it is because you could potentially see yourself marrying them. That might be odd to people that just date to get to know people or because they are lonely. I am not knocking that. But when I get into a relationship I do not want to waste the other persons time with my fear of commitment and doubt. Because of this response I was given a lecture on why I should basically lower my standards, so I don’t become a bitter old maid. I was also told that I am being brainwashed for thinking I deserve someone that is just as good of a person as I am. And that I may have plans and standards for myself, but things are not going to go my way. I understand that life is not perfect and whatever happens happens, but it is good to have a road map of where you intend to go. I’m rambling and probably sound psycho. Okay goodbye.
