The old cynical me

Three years ago I was a very different person. Part of that I believe is just because I am older and possibly a little wiser but a big part of it is meeting my boyfriend Erik. Before I met him I guess you could call me a jaded Pisces. I’d been burned one too many times and just decided maybe love was a crock of shit.

For years before him I only had a few significant relationships and the rest were just let downs. I started to think that just maybe the love I dreamed of as a pre-teen just didn’t exist in this world. I didn’t want much from a guy, just for him to make me laugh, shower me with love and affection and for him to be my best friend.

Three years ago from now I met Erik and my whole life was turned upside down. The cynical and uninspired me was suddenly excited and full of passion. All my doubts were slowly chipped away to find that genuine romance that was hidden beneath it. Right then I found someone who made me laugh every single day, filled me with love and gave me the friendship above all. I’m still cynical, that will always be there, now there is just a mix of passion along with it.

    I had decided that I was probably going to be single all my life, too, before dating my husband. I was even looking up info on sperm banks in the month or so before our first date, thinking of alternatives, deciding whether I wanted that in my life, since I didn’t think it was going to happen with a partner.

    Life is funny, isn’t it?

    That is funny Maureen, I didn’t know that. I think one of the reasons I loved Sex and the City so much was because I saw so much of myself in Carrie. I saw an eternally single girl who would never find someone that would be enough for her or for that matter someone who would be able really understand her. Am I talking about myself in the third person? 😆
