The last couple of years for me have been ever so challenging in the dating department. I was in what I thought was everlasting relationship only to get let down by deceit. I have met a few men who just didn't live up to the standards they talked about and I also met a man who was not ready for the commitment I desire. These experience could make it easy for a person to settle for the next thing smoking whether they are good for them or not.
I have decided however to refuse to settle unless it is with a person that is a good fit for me. I am pretty sure I don't have unrealistic standards for what I require in a mate. I want to be treated fairly and loved deeply. I don't want to be lied to. I want a companion. I want trust. I want to be able to agree to disagree. At the age of 36 I do not want to play games. I want consistency. I want a friend. I want my relationship to be blessed by God. The list could go on and on but I don't think I am being unreasonable.
While I do see a lot of relationships and marriages ending, I also see a good population of my friends making it work... I desire to be like them.
Just some random thoughts as I go through this season of being single...
Peace and blessing,
