There are reasons why at the age of 30 I am still single and has no boyfriend. Every person is unique. We have different values and beliefs when it comes to relationship or even marriage. As for myself, I am happy. I am what I am and marriage is not the only way that will make me happy or complete.
When I was a kid, I dreamed of getting married by the time I reached 25. Before I even turned 25, that dream disappeared. I realized that one happiness don't depend on having a companion for life. A single person can be happier.
Now, my parents are getting a lot worried with my status. They've been asking me over and over again when will I get settled. I can't believe that my mother pushes me to meet people for me to find a person. She even gave away my photos, mobile number, facebook to some of her friends for them to hook me up with someone. I remembered when I was in college, I couldn't even talk about my crush with her. In my college years, I believed that having a boyfriend meant marriage to them. But now...I really couldn't believe it.
Today, again, my mom called to tell me that she gave my phone number to my cousin who lives in Denver. She said my cousin knew someone that she would like me to meet.
It makes me mad when they do that. Love don't work that way to me. I'm not a man-hater and I believe in love. But I also believed that love works for me when I am the one whose making it possible and nobody else. It won't work when anyone else tells me what or who to meet. Nobody knew me as much as I knew myself. I know what I want. I know what I need.
Don't I have the right to find love for myself? I have a different idea of finding love in mind. Marriage is not quite one of them...yet! It is what it is!
