Are You Willing to Settle?
I could go on with the list, but you get my point. We check these items off as we're shopping for an inanimate object, not a person. Men have items on their list too. I consider myself an equal opportunity employer. Although I've come to the realization that there are some things I'm not willing to overlook or accept. Even funnier is how men and women expect to go to the club and find their "soul mate". If you did, please let me know how that's working for you. That's what happens when you hump for a bargain.
The way you begin a relationship is the way you usually finish. Meaning: Issues you deal with in the beginning can sometimes be the very same issues that become the problem in the relationship. I guess we need to be smart and informed consumers. I'm learning more and more about myself and what makes me happy. I don't need a relationship to define who I am, but I would like to be in one. The prerequisite is a healthy, mature, and loving relationship. Going back to the grocery store analogy; do you get what you want or are you shopping for what you need?
