I’m not sold on relationships.
I’m not sold on the idea of only being with one person for the rest of your life. Because I’m only in my 20’s and feel like I’ve been 10 different people already. How can someone tolerate that much growth in their self, let alone someone else? Plus all I’ve seen is the divorce rate sky-rocket.
I’m not sold on fairytale romances where you meet “the one.” There are SO many people in the world and we’re only exposed to a small portion, even with the Internet. What are the chances you met “the one” at college in your home state?
I’m not sold on dedicating your life to someone else. I don’t think it’s a bad thing to be a little selfish, but in a relationship you shouldn’t be selfish at all.
I’m not sold on the dynamic most relationships adapt. Just settling into the first thing that comes your way, changing your dreams for someone else. You had plans to move out of state after graduation, but you don’t because of the relationship. Sure, it’s not a huge loss because you’re happy where you are. But it is a little bit of a loss – it’s still a “what if.”
I’m not sold on relationships, but that doesn’t mean that there’s not someone somewhere out there that can change my mind.
