Realistic Soulmates

Hello Dear Followers,

Well, I finally finished “Marry Him” by Lori Gottlieb. I thought the book overall was a good read. It made me laugh several times, it scared me a few times and it made me realize that my thoughts about relationships were not only my own. Many experts, women and the author herself have experienced the exact same thoughts as I have and it was very comforting to know that I was not the only one.

It made me realize how unrealistic we women are about finding out significant other, how we create notions in our head and justify our beliefs about relationships everyday and then wonder why we can’t seem to find anyone.

It seems lately that every five minutes someone is getting married (thank you Facebook) and I always wonder,  what these women who are walking down the isle did different? Do they all have unrealistic expectations of marriage or is it simply that they gave someone out there a chance to be the one they spend the rest of their lives with. I don’t know.

What I do know is that for so long I have acted in a “childish” manner when it comes to what I believe I should have in my life. I have held out for people that didn’t deserve my time or energy and in holding out, I’ve missed out. I regret that. But now, I am 28-years-old and I’d like to settle down, but my beliefs are still alive and very much there. So what is to become of me?

I guess that is up to me to figure out. But overall, I think this book was a good read and very informative, I definitely would recommend this to anyone who needs a little Lori Gottlieb in their life. Don’t be mistaken, she isn’t telling you to settle, but she is telling you to be realistic.  She too had unrealistic notions about relationships.  Well I hope you enjoyed my blogs about this book, I will be making my next blog selection shortly. Thank You!

Until later..
