Avoiding Relationship Disaster

I am happily and freely single right now. I have been embracing this life for quite some time and I can feel that it won’t be long until we cross our paths. Being involved in a serious relationship is kind of a big deal to me now since I am not looking for hook-ups and short-term goals. I am finally ready for some long-term commitments and patient compromises, which in any way, a sign of maturity.

I don’t want to be the nagging girlfriend. I will try my best to make our relationship work, although we can’t avoid any kinds of conflicts and problems that may arise. As much as possible, I want you to be closer to home because I hate long distance relationships. Its magic doesn’t work anymore because we live in a different generation. Gone are the days of handwritten letters and paid phone calls. You will be just one chat away and it’s not safe anymore. The last thing I would want now is a relationship disaster.

I want us to behave in a healthy way. I want us to be clingy but caring with each other. If we want us to work out, we’ll have to look past our differences and let them slide. I don’t want you to do ridiculous things and I don’t want you to spend all your money on me. It’s the little things that count and it’s all about the memories we will about to share. Let’s take a lot of pictures instead and make a vast wall of memories because that’s what I always wanted.

Let’s call each other day and night. Let’s often exchange ‘good morning’ and ‘goodnight’. Let’s go eat hearty food and get drunk on coffee and wine. Let us become adventurers who easily get lost on the road. Let us work our asses off. Let us grow and become independent together and not be dependent with each other.

Also, I don’t want us to build our social media empire. It’s good to post pictures from time to time but I don’t want our relationship to thrive through technology. I don’t want the public to see us kissing rather I want them to show some candid and real pictures of you and of us having the best times of our lives. I want us to exude a positive vibe and not being overly obsessed and possessive with each other.

We also have to make the time and hang out with our family and friends. You have to understand that my world doesn’t revolve around you and only you. I have to catch up with them because they are my source of support before you even came knocking into my life. And I want you to do the same. I want us to be comfortable with each other’s family and friends and if you ever feel miserable with one of them, tell me so that you will never be thrown in at the deep end.

Lastly, talk to me and be open with me. I want you to show me the ropes in your life because I don’t want to settle with someone who I only want to call my boyfriend. Shots are already fired and I just want to have someone who I can really be happy with.
