The Dating Game


When I was in high school I thought a lot about dating. I thought that by age 25 I would have a child, be married, the white picket fence-basically the American Dream. When I started attending college, I realized that I definitely wasn’t ready for any of that. It’s not to say that I don’t think about marriage and children from time to time but at the moment I think I’m way too selfish right now. That being said, I do realize that if I do want those things I have to start taking dating more seriously.

Commitment is something I struggle with constantly. I’m either overcommitted or under committed in my relationships. I obviously don’t mean to be this way, but I am a fickle dater. I have had my fair share of committed relationships but for the last three years I’ve had a string of “almost” boyfriends. It’s not intentional with either party but usually it ends up that I like someone more or they like me more. There’s never a fair balance. 

That being said, why do I get mad if a guy I date ends up dating someone else? I know that I’m human but I really really hate this part of my humanity. If someone dates someone else I get jealous or upset. I KNOW that it wouldn’t have worked out with this person but I still can’t help but think-why didn’t you date me? I don’t know if it’s just how I am since I tend to hold on to people longer than I should or it’s a normal thing. Thoughts?

I'm a twenty something wannabee writer, who is trying to figure out this whole adulthood thing. In my free time, when I'm not writing, I enjoy beer and Netflix. Preferably together. I gravitate towards Cincinnati at night and live in the burbs during the day. On my blog you will find reviews, anecdotes, stories and the occasional rant.
