“I’m surprised you don’t have a boyfriend yet?”
Why do dudes say shit like this?
It’s like saying you “NEED” a boyfriend, or there is something wrong with you because you don’t have a boyfriend.
I don’t NEED a boyfriend, as a matter of fact I don’t even WANT a boyfriend.
What can a boyfriend do for me that I can’t do for myself?
What I’d like someday is a partnership
I’d like a teammate…
Someone who has my back, who supports me, appreciates me, respects me, acknowledges me, and is going to be my partner in crime.
Someone who won’t run when life gets hard, who won’t give up on me, who will respect me even if I’m not present, and who will stick besides me hand in hand.
Someone who won’t try to run me, or make me feel uncomfortable in my own skin.
Someone who has his own persona and understands I have mine.
Someone who I can trust and believe in.
Someone who is my escape, where I feel better even when the rest of my world seems like it’s crashing down.
I want a real teammate, a best friend, a real guy who is truly down for me.
I don’t NEED or WANT a boyfriend…
I’m too old for that childish shit.
I’m not looking for someone to run, control, or have on some leash.
I want true monogomy and respect.
I want a partnership.
