When I was younger, I used to have a checklist of what my perfect boyfriend / partner would be like. He would be tall, muscular, a man’s man, a gentleman, the perfect sweetheart / romantic, someone who I can be proud of and my family accepted. Of course, as you would expect, the list doesn’t end there. But now that I am at the age where I have matured (at least I think I have), these things do not seem to matter that much anymore. It would be great if I met someone and he had some of the qualities I’ve been looking for in a man but if not, I’ve learned to accept and compromise.
Lately, Allyson and I have been talking much more about our future particularly about the love life subject. We seem to be both eager plus excited to meet the men that can make our hearts skip a beat once again. I always share with her how much I miss having a companion in life who I can share anything with and be my silly self but unfortunately, it’s either timing is not on my side or I just don’t meet anyone I’m interested in. Don’t get me wrong though, I do love my life right now and I am still enjoying the single life but at the end of the day, I think to myself, it would be nice to share the great moments with someone special.
As my best friend, Allyson is not afraid to tell me the cold hard truth which I appreciate at times and at certain points I don’t because it does hit me so hard. We would be out (which is normal) and she would point a guy out to me who would look so physically attractive but I would always find something I don’t like about him. Believe me, I’m not trying to sound superficial since it all boils down to how well I can get along with someone and their personality of course but the point is I always spot a flaw. This is the time Allyson would be all up in my ear telling me off about having high standards plus being too picky.
My question is though, is being too picky and knowing what you want the same or entirely different things? Is it bad to look for something you know you want and disregard what you don’t like? I don’t want to proclaim that I am “too picky” because I feel in my heart that I’m not. I just know what I like and I want to stick to that. When Allyson reads this, I am sure her first thought would be “Karen, you are not getting any younger!” but my rebuttal to that is “I do not want to rush into things just because of that.” .
Maybe that day will come and maybe not, either way, I just have to live my life and live it to the fullest as much as I can.
Any advice for me? Leave it at the comments section below please 🙂
