Dating a spirit girl
I didn’t tell her about the time I had recently spent in Paris or about the men in my life who have wanted to marry me or that time I actually did get married.This woman just automatically pegged me as a girl who couldn’t find a man rather than a girl who set out to live a life of adventure and wasn’t going to settle for anything short of magical.
Then she proceeded to give me a fertility lecture, telling me how I immediately needed to find a man and start a family.And my dream has always been to travel—well, in the past year alone I’ve been to Paris three times and paid a trip to London as well.And I currently have the most amazing man in my life. It’s other people’s reactions to the number that make me feel bad.I know there are no guarantees in life, but I would want to feel secure that my family would stay together forever.That might sound a little naïve, but I do know it’s possible to have this type of security because I have felt this way in a relationship years ago, at a time I was not nearly ready to be anyone’s wife or mother.When a married man messages me asking to get together or telling me that I’m his secret crush or even to simply tell me he thinks I’m beautiful, I don’t find it flattering, I find it disheartening.
I’m sure most of it is harmless flirting, but I surely wouldn’t want a husband who behaved like that.
She stopped to give me a compliment, telling me that I looked “gorgeous” and asked if I was going on a date.
I told her that I was meeting a girlfriend for a drink.
In a universe where there are no chance encounters, I began to wonder what could be the reason this woman was put in my path.
The only thing that I could come up with was maybe she was simply put there to get me thinking, because on my own, as a single girl, I would never be thinking about marriage and children.
I tried to deflect the situation by asking if the man she was with was her husband. ” I never learned who was the man was standing behind her nodding in agreement with everything she was saying, but he did finally speak. Anyway, the woman continued her rant saying how I needed to be smart and find a man who made enough money to take care of me.
