Do you know what it feels like to have someone make you feel completely safe and secure in being yourself?

diary of a dating disaster-43

My family constantly stresses me because they can’t understand that I would rather follow a career path that makes me happy than do what they consider most convenient.

In addition to that, I also have to deal with their slightly unrealistic expectations of my role as the only daughter of my parents.

But I’m not here to talk about my dysfunctional family and their drama.

Thanks to my very prolific dating history, I have come to realize every man has an agenda.

At my age, I’m not exactly proud to say I have been through quite a number of men – dating and just having fun.

I have dated and been with men from different backgrounds, with different careers, and very abstract hobbies, but they have all had one thing in common – they were jerks of varying capacities.

I once dated a guy who made me believe everything about me was what he wanted to be with.

No, that’s not why I’m sitting in my car – just staring at the locked gate of my family compound.

I need to collect myself before I go in and have to endure my mother’s monotonous rants about my life as a spinster and what she considers to be a reckless life that I’m living.
