This has to be the second person today, to have asked me “are you ready to settle down?” I’m only twenty-three but I’ve been through so much and dealt with a variety of individuals that came with so much baggage and more. Now, I’m not looking to get married type of settling down but I am ready to settle with one person. As of yesterday, I thought so many people seek a ‘relationship’ and then my bestie mentioned someone who was talking to someone for years before creating a relationship. I rather talk to someone for so long that we become best friends and develop a strong relationship just within that and then later add a title. Than to just be in a relationship without knowing someone.
Am I talking to anyone at the moment, not exactly. I am still in that stage where I am ready to take it down a notch but I still enjoy going out without having to watch what I do. Although, I think people watch my actions and that’s where they try to put me in a category of being a “player.” Trust me, if I was a player then I would be, but I’m not.. My friends actually saw me cry so hard over someone who completely left me. Left me shattered with open wombs left on my own to heal. Once I’m committed, I’m committed that is all.
I want a relationship where we are best friends and have clear open communication and trust. Basically all the necessities that are required, kind of like having everything you need in order to create a recipe. I want a relationship that will go beyond just the typical three to six months limit. I want that person and my close friends to just be able to click and even though it sounds like a fairytale, it’s possible. Relationships are never easy and I think many of us tend to over analyze relationships and the wants and needs we thrive for when being in one.
