And I want a blog that accurately reflects who I am now and not the fact that Tinder is a crappy app.
As a “woman of a certain age”, the question has a negative connotation and people often blurt it out without thinking. That would seem simple enough but what does that mean exactly? – At bottom, I’m confident that if I wanted to date someone I could find someone to date. ”, eating chocolate or complaining about being single.
I said I wouldn’t be married by 30 and I honestly couldn’t imagine when and how I’d get married. I’m a busy bee – I’ve had a packed schedule since I was a kid and I’ve kept up that same pace into my thirties.
I said them with all the confidence and naivety of a 22 year old with zero life experience but lofty goals and an idealized notion of what the real world would be: “I’m also going to law school so I can have a career and be independent.
I do, however, know what I don’t want to do anymore so I figured that was a good place to start. Over the past year, my feelings about dating, relationships and the like have changed dramatically. There are several reasons I’d never do that: (1) it’s creepy; (2) I’m not maternal at all; (3) I know nothing about children and (4) did I mention that it’s creepy!?!
I don’t know what is going to happen to me in that area of my life and I don’t care. Essentially all I want is this: a partner who I think is awesome and who thinks I am awesome and we can do awesome shit together. (OK — that’s not “all” – I have a height, educational and beard requirement but that is SO not the point of this post). I don’t do any DIY stuff so this can’t become a DIY blog where I teach you how to make fun centerpieces with a treasure trove of knick knacks purchased from Michael’s.
When I was 22 years old, someone asked me why I wanted to go to law school.
I gave a very lengthy explanation much of which I remember verbatim; however, the final few sentences stuck out to me.
