I’ve never really been the girl who took dating too seriously. I’m only 25 and prior to now, my main priority was having fun—and of course studying too. There were only a few guys (two or three) I actually developed feelings for. While dating them, I truly believed that I had genuine feelings for them. And maybe I did somewhere in the mix of things, but for the most part, I realized that I was just attracted to the idea of them.
Whether it was the boy who spoiled me crazy with gifts, or the “bad boy” on the opposite side of my lifestyle, or the one with promises that he had his stuff together; they were all cool and each possessed some great qualities, but when those relationships came to a halt, so did my feelings. I was able to let them go and not look back. I remember wondering, “Aren’t I supposed to be depressed and watching ‘Pretty Woman’ over a pint of Ben & Jerry’s?” While I was happy that I wasn’t severely saddened, I knew that there was a reason for my nonchalant attitude and perhaps I wasn’t wrapped up in them the way I thought I was (not for the right reasons, anyway.)
