"I've been dating since I was fifteen! I'm exhausted! Where is he"? -Charlotte York, Sex and the City
I'm in my late twenties and I've never been love. Is that weird? I've had crushes, I've been in lust, I've been in unhealthy relationships where I knew I was over it but I stayed anyway; but I have never been in love. I want that Noah and Allie kind of love (minus the dementia), that Jack and Rose kind of love (minus the freezing to death), that Jamal and Latika kind of love (minus the massive bad luck), I want someone to tell my dad that nobody puts me in the corner kind of love (although I wouldn't recommend telling my dad what to do). I mean is that too hard to ask for? Yes, I know that these are all movies but I want it. I want the whirlwind affair, the romantic proposal, the exciting and slightly stressful engagement, the huge wedding that will cost more than the budget we had, and finally the happily ever after which includes children and grandchildren.
My parents have been married for 35 years. I want that. I want to grow old with someone. I want the good and the bad that comes with it. And most importantly I want to stop dating these "boys" who fear commitment. I'm waiting prince charming. Where are you?
