Met a girl through work when I was in my 20's. Not kidding, the day I laid eyes on her (she was coming in for an interview) I said to a friend "I'm gonna marry that girl".
When we got a house together about a year later, I realised a lot of things about myself. One of which was that I was not ready to settle down with her or anyone. There were just way too many faults of mine, which needed fixing. I realised just how much work I still needed to do on myself. And to be honest, my career was taking off in a new direction which would see me out of the country for up to 6 months at a time. And I realised how important my career was to me.
So... we split. She's married now, has two kids and a great husband. I'm not. I still think of her sometimes and wonder. But I also know it more than likely wouldn't have worked. I was not the person then, that I am now.
I would start dating the girl I wanna marry right now. Perhaps that's because I don't know all of the actual obligations and responsibilities that come with a relationship since I've been forever single, but still.
I told my crush I like her last week, like literally I just said "I like you... a lot." And I feel like my crush might have just said "well I like you too... like as a friend you know" because 1) she said she had never had a guy tell her that news and 2) MAYBE she just isn't ready yet, because nobody I know who also knows her has heard of her having a boyfriend (and we've known her for 2+ years).
my girlfriend is an angel ! she is the perfect match for me, she understands me without having to talk, pushes me to be better and takes care of me and puts me infront of everything in her life ! but as usual god is not fare with me, because of the war situation in both of our countries and my family stuck in other country which is under war also we are very far from each other and only meet every two months for holidays ! I'm killing my self to find a place where we can live together in and find work cause I know this woman will make me the happiest man in world and I'm ready to give up my master study dream for her but still can't leave my family without moving them to somewhere safe ! it kills me everyday to wake up and know that I finally find the woman I love and want to spend the rest of my life with but still being somewhere near her seems impossible ! I keep asking god everyday to give me the chance to make this woman the happiest woman on earth and I'm ready to do anything in return !
Yes, it's possible especially if something gets in the way of that relationship. For example, if you're too busy planning and building your future in terms of education or career etc. and you don't have the time to be in a relationship he might find it selfish to keep her waiting while not being able to fully devote himself to her.
Almost married 1 girl and she hurt me way too badly i truest her more then anyone. Now am with a new girl and she e everything my ex girlfriend is not a known she would never blame any of our fights 100% on me and she muture. But best of all she loves me for me and trys to understand me. it hasn't really been long enough for me to say I'll marry her but she's the perfect girlfriend and ill let you known in 3 years if am still with out. Put of me wants to be with just 1 girl but becuase of my ex girlfriend i kind of wanna date around and get too known myself better u known? most so becuase if this new girl leaves i gotta start over agin.
Yes. You're home on leave from the Military or time out from the Law Enforcement training academy and there she is. And you know you have to go back. You wish you could put her on hold, but instead, you are starting to understand the sacrifice that comes with your choice.
Yes you definitely can meet such a woman that you want to settle down with but you just might not be ready yet for all the change that you'll be growing into, sometimes you want to get your life in order first before anything serious takes place within it.
yeah I would say it is possible in the sense of you are just to busy to be in a serious relationship and need to finish your school or have a big project that will take up a lot of your time. They should be able to make some time or show their interest I hate when people are inconsiderate or not assertive about what they want from the relationship or what they won't put up with
of course that is possible , I see lots of girls I could see myself marrying but realistically know that isn't going to happen rate away , I'm not in a financial or employment position to do that or have I dated them long enough for that to happen
