During my three day relaxing weekend, I decided to ensue one of my favorite rituals, my own little Sex and the City marathon. After watching several episodes, I realize the ladies easily called some guy they were dating for a short period of time their “boyfriend”. It was hard for me to grasp the concept only because I put titles in such high regard as I thought most women did. I’m not sure if it was the fact that time did not really exist in each episode and sometimes the timelines did not make sense. As I think about how quickly (or not quickly) I got into relationships, I try to gather what is actual truth. I’ve seen situations that one person meets another and they cannot live without each other and I’ve also seen those who court before making the commitment to be monogamous. I have been in both situations, one of which never turned into a relationship per se but a long drawn out courtship which ended in heartbreak. I do not believe there has ever been a true happy medium. I believe every situation is to be taken with a grain of salt and treated as individually as the people themselves. After such heartbreak last year, I have been much more critical as to who I let close to me. I wonder should I be less hard on those I am dating and just enjoy what is going on, just go with the flow?
In reality, who really knows. I do believe things happen when you least expect it. I honestly am hoping that I'm swept off my feet like every romantic fantasy in my head.
Titles can’t be so bad :-/ The “L” word is really what I’m afraid of...lol :-)
