I find it somewhat ironic that in my quest for advice after four years, therapy, self-exploration, etc...I choose the internet for answers. I know that only I have the last word at the end but I’m having trouble getting to the end of the day lol.
On the surface he’s a man, that’s 11 years older than me, I am 24, and he has four children ages 3-8, lives in his parents’ basement, no college education and no job. Hasn’t worked a steady job in seven years, and seems to not be as bothered by this as much as then average person would be. So that brings me to the point that so many romantic comedies and romance novels that I've read in the past have brain washed me into believe in "true love". Your probably saying "girl, why are you with him?" I’m 24, no kids, senior in college, living at home as well and ummm well, now I have no job :).....BUT IM 24 with no children, in school, there’s a lot of room for error! Anyway, after being with this man for four years, embedding the roots of our relationship deep deep into my family tree (my family is very much used to him) and being with him exclusively it’s hard to leave. If I need it, it’s done. If I want it, and it’s within his reach, its mine. What I say goes. I’m the queen on the throne. It’s my world. I’m the most beautiful creature in the world etc. etc. This is him 365, for the past 3 1/2 years. Yes there has been lies and deceit, but does "true love" give a woman a reason to settle?
