” When night comes and you are on your own, you can say I chose to be alone. ”
Every once and awhile I find a post that I never published. Either I was too afraid, too busy, or just too lame to want to published these gems. Lucky for you (and me) I got over that, so here it is, yet another college post – this one from my senior year.
For the past four years I have been a very single girl. With my career taking off, school consuming my life, and family creeping in every once in a while…I just have never had time. Nor was I all that interested.
After seeing so many of my idols go dateless, or even never get married…it never actually occurred to me that I would ever need someone to be happy. And I still feel that way.
I have been lucky enough to have many strong female role models in my life. But unfortunately a lot of those females let their careers take a back seat to families and love. After seeing a high-powered career woman give up everything for a man, it made me realize that I could and would never change my hopes and dreams for someone else. ever.
So while I’m progressing, at a very fast rate, through my last semester of college I’ve come to terms with the fact that I have been in a very serious and monogamous relationship for the past four years. I’ve been in a relationship with my career. We have a good thing going on and I don’t think I want to ruin it.
We trust each other, give each other little pick me ups when the other is down. PLUS my career never rags on me for not shaving my legs.
I know that people always say it’s lonely when you get to the top, and I’ll be disappointed that I didn’t find love. But after losing so many people who I have loved, the idea of losing someone else just isn’t worth the pain.
So, Sorry guys…but I’m single, and you will have to be pretty amazing (or Ryan Gosling) in order to change that.
