19 27 year old dating
Sure, I'm not always 100 percent sure what that something is, but I have ambition and drive to figure it out.
Many of my female friends are the same way — and yet I've watched all of us date guys who didn't even own fitted sheets or a checkbook.
Who knows what I'll want to do for the rest of my life, right?
Well, here's the difference between me and most of the guys I dated: I'm actively pursuing something anyway, successfully.
Sure, I found ways to ensure I orgasmed, but that throw-down I really craved was never really there with them.
I wrote off fantasies I had during sex — like being spontaneously pushed against a wall and kissed, hard — as things I could compromise on, or that might happen someday down the road.
If he cooked me dinner on the third date, well, I'm sort of leading him on if I don't try to like him, right?But the basics — chemistry, sex drive, how naturally dominant or submissive your partner is — those things are pretty damn fundamental to how you'll work as a couple.I spent a lot of time with nice, attractive guys who I just didn't have much chemistry with.A guy who's just as successful as me, not a player, AND likes strong women? Or at least, that's what I told myself, as I wrote off the more ambitious guys I wanted most as "probably jerks" for seven years.By picking guys I could try to make projects out of and help direct, I was trying to avoid confronting the ways in which I could be more professionally fulfilled myself.
I'm a serial monogamist and hopeless romantic who's hoping to grow out of it, and I am, like most 27-year-olds and human beings, a complete work in progress.
