I completely agree. The fact that marriages only have a 50% success rate in today’s society shows that it’s no longer as sacred as it once was. Why are we entering this “life long bond” with multiple people? Seems a bit oxymoronic to me. As far as your question, every since I was younger I said I wanted to get married around age 27. That age still seems ideal for me, but I’m 21 and not currently seriously dating anyone. Marriage doesn’t really seem to fit in my plan for the next 5 years either. So between 27 and 30 I want to settle down and get married, that way I still have time to enjoy my husband without children and then start a family while being stable but not looking like I’m my children’s grandmother lol. I was told that it’ll be hard to find a man without any baggage (i.e. children, previously married, etc.) at that age but I believe there are plenty of men out there with my same mindset and one shall find me. In the mean time, you can find me living life.
btw…I realized I posted on my wrong account (fail whale) lol sooo follow http://lustingtolove.tumblr.com for more posts about dating and such. Thanks for the response too!
So it seems like so many people are getting engaged. This scared thee shit out of me. I wouldn’t say I have a fear of commitment but at the young age of just 21, the thought of marriage has not even crossed my mind. Not seriously at least. I mean I’ve thought about it as every girl has, but I don’t see that in my near future. Yet there are people my age who are taking that next step. That’s all an dandy but I can’t help but question why. To each it’s own I suppose.
In my opinion, I don’t think people should settle down so young. I’m a firm believer in sowing your wild oats. For me that includes traveling…partying…kickin it! All of this without the worry of having to report back to someone. I want to experience things in life that you need to do while you’re single because doing them while you’re tied down won’t give you the same experience. I think this comes from my mother as well. She settled down with my father at the age of 18 and 10 years later was over it because she didn’t live life before she settled down. I don’t want to do that. I want to get everything out of my system before I get married so I won’t live with any regrets.
While I don’t agree with settling down so early, I suppose if you find that person then you feel like why wait? Maybe it’s that I haven’t found that person. But I just want to live life to the fullest and then settle down….then live life to the fullest some more with my husband. But forever is a long time so I don’t mind getting a slightly late start on it.
I’ve started a new tumblr…well it’s connected to this one so you may be able to see it. If so, let me know. If not follow it! http://lustingtolove.tumblr.com
A picture that makes you laugh
So I was leaving out of my chorus class my senior year of high school and waked upstairs to find this on a locker. First, yes…those are underwear on someone’s locker. Second, the note left was even funnier! I do believe it read “Dave, You left this at my house Saturday. We have to be more careful about these things. My dad is putting ???, Love (not sure).
I’m not sure if this was a prank or serious (you never know at alma mater) but one thing for sure is I crack up every time I see this picture.
Yea i forgot to do one yesterday….but I was in a bad mood so I’m doing both days today! judge me lol
Day 7 is supposed to be a picture of your closest treasure. Well I chose this picture because it shows me giving out my closest treasure to a friend. My Love. A treasure is something you should hold on to right? But what’s the use of being selfish? I love to share so i share my treasure, my love with everyone. It’s the most precious thing I have to give.
I mean…who wouldn’t want to trade places with this?! Only concern is who’s going to feed me when I’m hungry. She has no responsibility whatsoever. She doesn’t even have to be responsible for going to the bathroom! She just pooped on herself and waits for you to clean it up. Oh to rewind time. Not have a care in the world….just laying there being a-freaking-dorable! I want to spend a day as Chloe…my beautiful little diva of a niece!
My Favorite Memory
This was my last day in L.A. I’d gone to the funeral of my great grandmother who’d live a long, full life. My parents decided that we would just stay a week and enjoy LA since we’d be out there. At LAX I saw one of my favorite dancers from So You Think You Can Dance Ade!! The week was extremely fun and meeting my favorite dancer that season was the icing on the cake.
All of the NIGHTS! This picture marks one of the best summer days/nights of my life. I chose this picture because this day/night was so random….yet fun. That’s usually how my nights are when I go out. I just never know where I’ll end up next and I love just going with the flow. My night = randomness. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
My most favoritest tv show is………
LAW & ORDER: SVU …..Law & Order is cool and Criminal Intent is more like the red headed step child of the Law & Order Family, but SVU has absolutely has to be the best show ever! I think this post is quite fitting seeing as though every Tuesday you’re guaranteed to find a Law &Order: SVU marathon on USA. No matter how many times I’ve seen an episode, I still watch it like I’ve never seen it before! If you haven’t watched this show, you are truly missing out!
