Despite common thought, the pursuit goes on for quite some time even if a label is given to the relationship.
They are charming and perfect, but once they've won you over they will disappear faster than they came.
Sometimes you are in a relationship with a guy who seems like an amazing boyfriend, the kind of man who you could see yourself with for the rest of your life.
Relationships involve hard work on both people’s ends if they are going to endure the test of time.I mean, how funny is it to want something, drive yourself crazy fantasizing about it every day, and then when you finally get it, drop it like last year's Ugg boots? I remember all the heartache, the drama, the feeling that I just had to find someone or die trying, all the classes I took and all the insecurities I had, like maybe I was unlovable. He was everything I thought I wanted — good-looking, stable, nice, secure, funny. I can't help regretting all that time I spent agonizing over my relationships and worrying about being alone.I don't know about you, but there's something downright unnerving about being so conflicted — about thinking you want the whole enchilada (marriage, kids, live-in boyfriend, or husband) and when the time comes to sign on some dotted line (be it a one-year lease or a marriage certificate) realizing that you don't. And then out of nowhere, I freaked out and broke up with him. I wish I would have figured it out sooner and enjoyed those years a little more. hobbies, traveling more, whatever — just focusing on my needs instead of running around town like some crazy woman.Or those women who go on ad infinitum about their careers, the joys of living solo, and no-strings sex, only to collapse in a weeping heap when a guy doesn't call when he says he will.And how could we forget those who are so terrified of facing their commitment fears that they break up with someone they love when things get too close?
