I am terrible at romantic relationships. I hate the sense of obligation they bring, and I have yet to meet someone who seems to be truly worth all of the time and effort. Even so, I can get very tired of being alone.
I like to think of myself as being brutally honest, but in reality I’m more selectively honest.
Being that I don’t subscribe to any religious or spiritual beliefs, I am acutely aware that this whole life business is literally a one shot, no re-do’s deal. As such, I tend to dwell too much on missed opportunities or big decisions because I have a very specific vision for myself and any other outcomes are unacceptable. By extension, I also worry that I’ve already screwed myself over.
