Loved this one, Iva! You know I contemplate these things, too.

I’m trying to be more chill, though. After a very painful 2017 (well, 2014 through 2016, too — I never want to relive 2016), I can tell I have settled down a bit about dating/relationships. I still take it seriously, but I’m not wound as tightly as even a year ago.

Even so, as I get older I do wonder if the ship has sailed. I keep trying (as you know), but it feels less likely to happen. I straddle being realistic while trying to avoid being jaded or resentful. Most of the time I think I’m successful, but some days are harder!

I’m grateful for you and your voice, friend!

Queen of mixtapes. Lover of music, travel, and fashion. Authentic sharer of life lessons and dating foibles.
