I'm Not Built For Relationships10:57 AM
My mother would probably call me "boy crazy" because in middle school and high school "relationships" came and went like revolving doors at a hotel. She had developed a rule when I started dating that I wasn't allowed to go to my significant others house until we had dated for one month. I rarely made it that long, for whatever reason.
Now that I'm a bit older, and have been plopped in the "real dating world", I still don't feel like I fit. If you looked up the word "independent" in the dictionary, my pretty little face would be plastered beside the definition. I pride myself on being able to be by myself. I like to do things on my own and I'm the absolute worst at keeping in touch or spending time with friends. It's a blessing and a curse I suppose, because my extreme independence has hindered my ability to build a relationship that can actually function. It's essentially turned me into the "selfish partner" in relationships. I'm not proud of this, but it's worth talking about so people can understand.
