Sometimes, it was just to leave feeling successful, with the promise of a second date that might turn into a relationship. Other times, it'd be to kiss them and ultimately sleep with them. So with these intentions in mind, I could never just go with the flow. Sometimes, people can't live up to this concept you've depicted in your head. We overestimate the success of a situation and end up feeling let down, confused as to why things just couldn't be as you imagined. Everything happens for a reason, right?

We can entertain any career and educational aspirations we wish, but we are so afraid to want a fulfilling romantic relationship. It's as if the mere desire of these things will turn us into desperate s throwbacks or some version of a Stepford Wife. Instead we're told we can "date like a man" and that it is somehow liberating to have a different man in our beds every weekend.
