I’d feel lonelier in a relationship than alone if the other person had nothing interesting to talk about, AKA, their own life.I’m looking for a healthy relationship where our worlds don’t revolve around each other, but where we know there’s respite in each other’s company.My first relationship (a different girl), about a year ago, ended because both of us had been insecure.Since then, I worked at self-improvement, and I’ve honestly been impressed with my progress.Needless to say, I got a text bright and early the next morning and we’ve been texting a bit. Introductions as a boyfriend would be awkward because my manager didn’t want me to leave.I worked hard, kept a positive outlook, and somehow managed to get along with even the prickly people there. It was a great chance to get a feel for her personality, lifestyle, relationships, and maturity.I asked what she wanted to do, and she said “I don’t know, I’m good with anything”.
If you are meant to be friends someday, it will be because common interests and acquaintances bring you into each other’s orbit. I know this advice is coming with a whopping helping of “ but please know that there is love, here, too, for you, and for my younger self, and for my ex, President Earnest B.
Forthcoming of The Republic of Sincerity, and for your coworker who was classy about waiting until the last day before she boldly asked you out.
She will be just fine without you, and you both are most likely going to go on a lot more first and second dates with people who don’t quite fit with you.
When I asked whether she’s doing post-secondary, her answer was the generic “I hated school, so maybe I’ll become a cosmetician”.
She agrees with whatever I say and doesn’t have a lot to say about her day, goals, or hobbies. I’m easygoing, so I spent time reflecting on why this information bothered me. I’ve got a great part-time job to cover costs, university and my budget balances at the end of the day. This girl is wonderful, but it seems she dates as a form of entertainment; escape from her life.
