Hey hey joons,
Looks like I owe you all an apology too – for being MIA. But I’ve been AT work … as in haven’t come home in the past five days. Man, the real world is not a joke. Badbakhty keshidim. (just kidding – love my job, even when it requires me to be serious for five minutes).
And as you can imagine – being MIA really just means that I have a LOT to tell you all. I’ve been trying a few new things lately – going to new restaurants, hiking (or just walking a lot), going to the gym, and even dating more seriously (sex is so overrated – LOL I can’t even say that with a serious face).
I’ve always been very closed off when it comes to dating guys seriously. Most of the time, I just start to feel claustrophobic after awhile because I feel like a guy can keep me from opportunities (unfair — and analysis for a later time).
But I recognize that flaw in myself and I’ve been trying to overcome it. Clearly, I’m not doing very well. I started dating someone in the summer and almost immediately, we branded ourselves with the title (boyfriend/girlfriend). Not something I’m usually into – but for the sake of being more “open-minded,” I thought #LEGGO.
In the past two-three months, I got a crash course in what a “relationship” really is.
Being someone’s girlfriend comes with a lot of responsibility. You can’t just tell someone they’re your boyfriend and call it a day.
That’s the problem — when you jump into something, you don’t really realize that there are standards you have to fulfill until it’s too late.
Calling someone your boyfriend or girlfriend after only a few weeks is a desperate act to ensure they won’t sleep with or kiss anyone else while you’re dating them.
