Ok, perhaps I shouldn't complain about this but I will anyway.
I've been dating for awhile... men and women. Y'all know this already. Every single promising person that I meet and date... its as if I'm instantly committed.
I hate that. Its the just add water and stir for instant commitment/marriage/cohabitation/kids/the whole nine. Doesn't anyone date anymore?
Can't I just be casual and have fun being single? Why do I have to settle down so quickly? Why does everyone want to monopolize all of my time and energy and restrict my options?
And then I'm in the terrible position of giving my 'I'm not really looking for commitment right now' speech. I'm getting pretty good at it. I need to give it again, tonight, to a guy... he thinks cause he made me dinner and offered to finance medical school that I should marry him or something.
I am not looking for a husband. Maybe I should have that tattooed somewhere. People are moving waaay too fast.
I mean, I understand its difficult to find someone to be in a relationship with. I get that, and I sympathize. But I've recently come out of a *long* term relationship and I'm not looking to be shacked up again, instantly, without really evaluating what I want to do.
And......... I have another thing to rant about.
I just recently found out that ever since my ex-lover and I broke up, my mother has been emailing her regularly. They have this clandestine communication where she comments on how selfish and self-absorbed I am, my mother agrees and shares the current details of my life and romantic entanglements.
Ok, she even invited the ****** to Thanksgiving dinner.
Am I the only one who thinks this is a totally jacked up situation?
