I enjoy the relating. I enjoy all the personalities, differences, distinctiveness, and excitements. No bonds, free from unhealthy attachments. Then anxiousness begins to creep in when I begin to realize I overextended myself. Suddenly unwanted questions are asked and I am forced to explain my unconventional views on relationships.
People have this misconception that I am bitter about love, that I have some deep-seated issue about relationships, that I just haven’t found the “right one,” or that I am somehow anti-love/anti-relationships.
Nothing could be further from the truth. I am full of love; both to give and receive. My previous relationships have not made me bitter about love. They were experiences neither good nor bad, but nevertheless experiences rich in lessons. I grew from them and am now ready for the next phase of my life.
If I decide to go out with more than one person, it doesn’t mean I am not fully engaged with whomever I see. I’ve seen the pitfalls of trying to have monogamous relationships (boredom, jealousies, and insecurities). You can relate to another person without being in a conventional “Relationship”. I don’t disagree with relationships, just the ones that are based on ownership and conditions.
My philosophy of life includes living as much as possible in the now and not putting limitations or restrictions on my life. There is always a possibility I may get in a conventional relationship but it won’t depend on the girl I meet but on what I want at that point in my life. At this moment I shall continue to embrace the love connection I have established with another and together we will explore all that it means to love.
