I’m 31 now. I think I’m beginning to understand what life is, what romance is, and what a relationship means.
Practically all the relationships I know are based on a foundation of lies and mutually accepted delusion.
We had two rules growing up in my house: If you’re going to take a shower, do it with whomever you’re dating so you don’t waste water and if you buy one for yourself, buy six, because everybody’s going to want one.
If I’m with a man, is that going to prevent me from achieving my goal? What sacrifices will I have to make in terms of being myself, if I’m with a man? Something that young women find out really quickly is that when you start dating, all of a sudden you’re supposed to have a role. You’re not allowed to just be yourself.
