Back in the late 80’s I had a girlfriend I was considering marrying. She was a sweet girl but didn’t eat meat and kept a messy apartment. I decided to move on. Just recently she told me she couldn’t have kids. 28 years of marriage and three kids later, I’m glad I made that choice.
Life happens, doesn’t it?
It’s okay if someone wants to place what they want over what they don’t want, that’s preferences.
The obligation is to be honest with the other side.
And most of us have had those ‘hiccup’ relationships, haven’t we?
I really believe if a person has set preferences, they really need to be upfront. The ‘what if they don’t want to date me, then? Syndrome, as I call it, is extremely noxious and dangerous. The person who has that symptom is already indicating they are callous about others.
We each only have a finite set of moments. To deprive someone of possible time to chose a mate because of selfishness is appalling.
I’ll get of my soapbox.
I am truly glad for your life’s path.
Your Yesterdays have left a path for many Tomorrows.
