Marriage vs dating
They will turn the world over for their wives’ birthdays for God knows what insecurity they are compensating for and you will surely come to know about it when Facebook shouts it at your face.
Remember those Saturdays when you did nothing but nurse a terrible hangover and said to yourself ‘This is what rock stars feel like..”. Weekends are about grocery shopping, changing bed sheets, paying bills and in generally being miserable.
Honestly, I do not want to invite a bunch of jaded, lumbering , hairy adults to my kid’s birthday.
Worse is when your wife tried to pair you up with her friend’s possibly boring and weird husband by pointing out common things with him.
If you want to get clear on what type of experience you are looking for or want to have, ask yourself what your goal is; what you really want.
Whether you are interested in being in a dating relationship with someone, or you are seeking to get married (or both), you will have a much more successful experience when you take the time to get clear on who you are, what qualities you are looking for in another person, and what qualities you are looking for in a relationship.
Soon this announcement will tear through Facebook and your combined news will gather the most number of likes more than you guys ever got. After all, all the married people on Facebook are doing the same thing as you, turning up at dinner, going on trips and frequently reminding each other and the rest of the world how they miss each other while being less than a taxi ride away from each other. Can two different individuals live together without the universe exploding? Like being stuck in quicksand, you will not realize how deep you are in it till its too late. You surrender to your fate and become those grumpy middle aged men you see at the shopping mall who seem to be looking for neighboring buildings to jump from and land on a sharp object. During dating, you will discover how similar you both are and in marriage you will painfully realize that you are both different individuals with different liking.
Now marriage is a process with a high barrier to entry and even more higher and painful barrier to exit.
