my boyfriend and i have been dating for just over four years now and i love him more than anything in the world. The problem is my parents. See he was my first boyfriend and i was his first giflfriend and they are worried that i am just settling and want me to see other people. i get this.. i really do… they are worried i will be trapped in something i dont want but i dont feel stuck, im happy, and yet i keep second guessing our relationship because my parents are making me paranoid. what do you think i should do?
You don’t really wanna know what I think you should do. You just want me to confirm your life choices, and I’m not going to do that.
Own your shit, kiddo. You’re starting to make adult decisions now, and you’re accountable for the consequences.
Speaking of adult decisions, how old were you when you started dating this guy? Fourteen? Fifteen? Do you really want the child you were at that age making one of your most important life choices?
You’re happy. Good. Fine. Whatever. Maybe you’re one of those blissful idiots who’ll stay that way forever having known only one romance with your high school sweetheart. If that’s the ride you want to sign up for, go with god.
Fair warning though, life has a way of fucking with your fairy tale, and if your one-and-only happy bubble ever bursts you’ll be left pink and exposed in the motherfucking jungle. That’s what your parents are worried about.
