Now when it comes to love and relationships I would like to think of myself as pretty traditional. Since I have been off of work for the holidays, I have a lot of time on my hands to think about what a relationship really means to me or it could be the fact that I am premenstrual and emotional as fuck but I digress. Have you ever thought about what it is that you really want and not what society tells you that you should want?
I remember a time when I would be so quick to dismiss others point of view or way of living because I was never exposed to something that deviates so far from the “norm”. I think so many people are so quick to judge others situations but if it works for them then you should not care. For example, while dating does it even matter for you and your love interest to have a title? I mean why should things be so formal and legally the title of boyfriend and girlfriend really doesn’t mean shit? I personally think a lot of men shy away from getting into relationships because women take it to the extreme. Another thought that has crossed my mind is the importance of getting married. Why is getting married so important to some people? Do some get married for religious reasons or because society tells you that you should? If you truly love someone and you guys are truly happy then what does a piece of paper validate or solidify? I remember I used to side-eye couples that have been together for years but never took the steps to get married. The more mature I get I understand why people take their time getting married. What about having babies? Does it really take a couple to get married or even be together to have a baby? I get it, two heads and two incomes are better than one but all a baby needs is consistency and loving parents. What about open relationships or even dating someone who doesn’t consider themselves straight?
I think that so many people do things for the wrong damns reasons. In fact I think that people do shit and do not even know why they do it. Now I am not saying that some of the things that I spoke above about works for me but just do not yuck someone else’s yum. If what everyone is seeking is love and happiness then why should all of these restrictions and guidelines exist? The only thing that is universal is love and there are more ways than one to love someone.
