I sometimes feel like I'm only just starting to figure things out, but then I realize that I have felt that way every single year since I can remember, like I'm having the same big epiphany again and again. Have you ever looked at pictures from your childhood and realized your parents in that picture are the very same age you are right now today? Crazy, right? But somehow my mom in that picture at 32 years old always looks so much older and wiser than I feel right now at 32. Either I'm doing something really wrong.....or I'm doing something really right. I guess that's still TBD.
I also realized I haven't taken more than 5 pictures since my 30th birthday, but have like 1,000 from my 20's. Completely unintentional, but it can't be a coincidence.
I've never been married and I have no kids (that I know of?) and I'm looking for the same in a man that I meet. I'm not ready to be insta-mom and not sure yet if I want to be any sort of mom ever. But again, things are always growing and changing, so I can't say for certain my feelings on that won't evolve over time.
I'm not necessarily super political, but it's pretty important to me and political views are one of my deal breakers. I'm very liberal and it is extremely important that you are too. I'm sure you're a great person! But I want a wonderful partnership and friendship, not a battleground over our fundamentally different points of view. Because if we don't share and appreciate eachother's very essence and core values, what else is there?
