Earlier this year I met my best friends guy friend from another country. He was only here for the weekend but I honestly think I might have found the man I want to marry. The problem is he lives an ocean away, and even though he is older than I am I don't think he is ready for a real intimate, emotionally close relationship. I haven't found anyone who makes me feel like he does ever, so I remain single not putting myself out there. He, on the other hand has been in a few short lived relationships since then, and every time I hear about it, it hurts a little more. I always was the one to say that I never wanted to get married and have kids because I wanted to be the succesful independent woman, now all I think about is what it would be like to be with him forever and have out first child together. It is really cliche to say, but a weekend changed my life.

I can relate. I once wanted to not start a family and be independent all my life, not attaching myself to any specific people and focus on helping the "greater good," or society in general, through my career.<br />

Now, on the other hand, that I've met a few women, one in particular, marriage and kids have suddenly become very appealing to me. I think it would be good for me and the person I'm with.
