Being a young, female adult, I have always had the desire of being able to call my boyfriend my best friend. Our society is so focused on love and the idea of dating, that we all feel so constantly pressured to quickly get ourselves into a relationship.
Relationships that happen on the spur of the moment tend to not end too well, and I can relate to that.
The boys I dated in high school all ended up leading to short relationships because I did not build a friendship before becoming committed to them.
I think this is one of the biggest mistakes females make in our society. We don’t even think about building that sense of trust and friendship before actually dating because we are too strung up on the idea of “needing” a boy in our life.
Instead of taking things too fast, how about we take things slow for once and see what could happen.
We never really hung outside of school, so I never got the chance to get to know him in a different setting.I am so happy that I started things slow with him because it truly took the pressure off of each of us.We were able to get to know each other because we wanted to, not because we felt forced.She quickly connected us via Facebook, where her friend and I immediately hit it off and subsequently spent the whole weekend together.Jessica later introduced me to yet another awesome friend in San Francisco, and once again, her friend and I ended up having amazing chemistry.I never thought once about whether this boy was even right for me.As I entered high school, I had multiple relationships that were nowhere near the kind that I could potentially see leading towards marriage.Of course I had my cute little relationships in middle school where I thought I was in love, but really, I had no idea what love even was or why I was in the relationship in the first place.This is all because I was pressed to believe that just simply being in a relationship made everything better.I wanted to see him more, but I did not want to get attached before we would en dup being two hours away from each other.College started, and our talking stopped until one night I decided to start things back up with him. We have had our struggles here and there because of the distance, but not once have we decided that we are not meant for each other.
