Why “Settling” Was The Best Decision I Ever Made
A lot of relationships, even among my friends, seem to thrive on stormy arguments,
break-ups, and make-ups. And with dating apps and stuff, we’ve naturally become pickier — I mean, the whole point is to literally filter out people we don’t think would be a good match for us. I understand the thrill — been there, done that — but it’s not for me. I didn’t settle for the first person that came along, but I am so glad that in my 30s I’m not out there looking for someone, going on dates with strangers, and so on. It’s not like I’m feeling the
pressure of the “biological clock” either, I don’t even want to have kids. I like going about my day, doing my thing in peace, then seeing my partner in the evening and going to bed together. I can do this, with my partner, over and over, for the rest of my life. Does this sound terribly average? Even unromantic, perhaps? We don’t do a lot of romantic things, anyway.
