I am 29 and when I was in high school/early college I had set aside a plan. I would go to school, graduate, get a good job and live on my own for a few years befor I got married. I have now finally accomplished all of this. I have two degrees, I have a great job, I have a great group of friends, and I live in a great place in a great town. Everything is great! However, I can't seem to find a good guy. I actually thought I did a few months ago. But he turned out to be seeing someone else at the same time as me.
I read an article earlier saying that people of our generation, "the millenials," are not open to being vulnerable to love. But, I find that interesting because I feel like everyone I know who is single is looking for love. There seems to be some sort of disconnect here and I'm not sure what it is exactly. Do you think people are just becoming more isolated and less open to relationships or is it just that we are all complaining and doing nothing to fix our situation? Haha!
I for one do go out on a regular basis and go to new places I've never been before in hopes that I'll meet someone new and interesting but alas I have not met a good catch as of yet. So whats the deal?
1. Honesty: This is something that is not only important to me in relationships but also friendship.
2. Communication: Being able to sit down with someone and just talk about nothing and everything is awesome. It’s also very telling when you can just sit there in silence and be comfortable just being there with them.
4. Personal Pride: This to me is more important than ambition. If you can’t take pride in what you do for a living or in your hobbies or in your relationships or in yourself for that matter, then that is just depressing.
Most Helpful Guy
Me being age 29, I can understand how u feel.
What u say is spot on. Most people our age that are single, have been hurt really bad once, or have been hurt several times, so they "have their guard up", and may not show their interest very well, or "play hard to get".
May the both of us find our matches! :-D1
