Dating, maybe I haven’t done it enough or maybe it’s just not for me. Either way, I don’t like it. That’s why, if anything were to happen to Thinh and I, I’m going to be single for a very long time.
I was on my lunch break today with a couple of my co-workers. Like everyone new that I meet, they always ask if I have a boyfriend and when I say I do, they ask how long we’ve been together. Whenever I tell them how long we’ve been together everyone just freaks out. Then comes the “whoa, that’s a really long time!” “How old are you two?” “When is the wedding?” I know they’re just joking but it gets old when it comes from every single person that I meet.
I’ve probably repeated this about a bajillion times before, but unlike most people my age, I believe that I’m getting old. Not old to the point where I need to get married, but I just don’t find dating interesting. Yes, I should see what’s out there for me and not to ‘settle’ but I don’t think of it as settling. I think of it as, I think I found the person who best suits me, and I have no intention on meeting someone else. I know there are a billion other fishes out there and they could suit me better, but there will always be someone better no matter who you end up with. I could be with the smartest guy; there will be someone who’s smarter. I could be with the most handsome guy, but there will be someone who is more handsome. I could be with someone who is successful, but there will always be someone who’s more successful. That doesn’t mean I should leave the one that I’m with just because there is someone out there that does it better than him? –I think he’s the best at everything he does anyway.
Another reason why I won’t date is because I find it tedious and boring. The guy will probably just make up a bunch of lies just to make himself look good, and after dating him for awhile, the truth will surface like it always does. I just don’t want to repeat everything that we’ve done already. We’ve worked so hard and put so much effort into where we are now. Starting all over with someone else?—No thanks!
