I was visiting teaching last night, and my engaged teachee was talking to me about why she likes being in a relationship so much.
She said she likes having someone to assume you can go with everywhere or do anything with. Like a go-to friend.
Well, what a coinkey dink! Because that's my favorite thing about relationships too.
I love being single. I love my freedom. I love doing what I want when I want to do it. I love taking off for the weekend whenever I want to go wherever I want just because I feel like it. I love only worrying about me and my happiness. I love only answering to myself.
But sometimes... Sometimes... I really want someone who will go get ice cream with me after I've graded papers all day.
