For me and many others, this decade has been all about love and work.
Sure, that has many exceptions, (hello, abusive relationships) but by and large, I've realized that the happier I am, the less I feel the need to tell lots of people about my relationship in the same detail, because I don't have as much to prove.
Sure, I tell my friends about the new person I'm dating, but there's no hours of obsessing over what that text meant, or if someone is really "the one."Heh, famous last words.
Well, here's the difference between me and most of the guys I dated: I'm actively pursuing something anyway, successfully.
Sure, I'm not always 100 percent sure what that something is, but I have ambition and drive to figure it out.
It made sense — in some ways, I'm still figuring it out myself.
