Dating man child way

Now, I see clearly how juvenile that was and how it was keeping us in a parent-child dependency rather than allowing us to function as two grown adults.

I also used to think that love had to be a little messy to keep it exciting.

I realized that I only needed myself to be able to live fully.I believed that without drama relationships were calm but boring, and that it was okay to be a little volatile at times.After all, the making up afterwards was the best part of all.Partly because I used to be a firm believer that love was capable of conquering all, and also, because I didn’t want to accept that the handsome, charming, funny guy at my side wasn’t capable of “adulting” in a relationship!As I wasn’t willing to accept the truth, I have to admit, I wasn’t being adult either. My expectations for someone else were ridiculous when I wasn’t even living to those standards myself.
