Committed to Finding a Lifelong Loving Healthy Relationship
Even though I'm very outgoing, (and I love to flirt!!!) -- I'm committed to finding the right guy for a lifelong loving healty relationship.
Perhaps it won't last a lifetime, I can't say I believe in soulmates..... BUT I believe it's better to find someone you truly and completely click with, than settle for something mediocre.
Some people look to casual sex to fill a void in their lives. Others quickly match up with partners they don't really understand, simply for the sake of getting married or "just being with someone." And then there are some who stay with someone, but see other people on the side. It really hurts to see a friend cheat or get cheated on. I still can't believe some of the stories I hear.
Maybe I'm idealistic, fairy-tale inspired, or just plain nuts, but I would rather wait for someone I truly care for. And then stay loyal to them for as long as the relationship lasts (hopefully as long as possible). It's safer (STDs are rampant), and overall makes for a healthier, more stable life.
The older I get, the more I realize that having a lifelong loving partner is incredibly important because you'll have that support while being able to care for another individual -- which is fulfilling in itself. In my opinion, people who strive to be alone are simply denying their humanity. (not that being single is wrong, I fully support waiting, but you know what I mean)
I understand that few people like to be in smothering relationships, but I believe that there is nothing wrong with a healthy, BALANCED lifelong relationship between two compatible people. It's really one of the most beautiful things our life has to offer.
