It’s the question asked usually after the first few dates. It’s the ticked message boxes on online dating profiles, it’s the conversation that tends to flow after a few cocktails with your closest girlfriends.
I have to be honest; lately this conversation has stumped me.
I went on a date last week with a guy who asked me point blank what I was looking for, and I really struggled with how to answer it. And in the back of my mind, thought, wow, that’s a little intense, I literally just told you where I’m from… I know I want to eventually get married and have kids, but I’m only 22. I feel like there’s so much I want to do before I can settle down; mostly traveling. Working on myself. Reading and writing and drinking tea and dancing all night with my girls. Becoming the best teacher I possibly can.
However, a part of my heart yearns to have a partner; to have someone to share the good and bad moments with, to share my hopes and dreams, to love and encourage me.
I think we can all come to the conclusion that I’m not entirely sure what I want at this moment. And you know what?
I think that’s okay.
