I'd Rather Be Single Until I Find The One

It doesn't mean I'm picky or have commitment issues.

I'd Rather Be Single Until I Find The One

Your twenties can be a really weird time in our lives.

Some of us are getting married. Some of us are having kids. Some of us are getting engaged. Some of us are still in our hooking up phase. Some of us, like me, are just chilling with a glass of wine.

Throughout all of the craziness that happens while you are in your twenties, I believe that everyone has an end goal of finding the one you want to be with for the rest of your life. Someone you can grow old with. Someone you can raise kids with. Someone who will always be there for through good times and bad times.

A lot of my friends are in relationships. I'm happy for all of them and wouldn't want to have it any different but it can be hard to be the single friend all of the time when you just want to have someone else to share your life with.

In today's relationship culture for the gay community, a lot of gay men in their twenties would rather just hook up with each other than get into a serious relationship. There are some gay men who will do relationships but it seems like those guys are becoming a rare breed more and more every day.

At this point in my life, I'd rather be single until I find the one.

I'm not going to waste my time anymore with guys who don't want to be in a relationship at all. I'm also not going to waste my time anymore with guys who don't want the end goal of a relationship to be an engagement that will lead to marriage. I want to get married someday. I want to have kids. I want all of that stuff.

Some people may think I'm just being picky with the guys I want to date and be in a relationship with. Some people may say I have commitment issues just because I don't want to get in a relationship with every guy I talk to.

I know I am still young but I feel like I'm at the point where I don't want to waste my time anymore. If I want to be in a relationship with you, that means I have an end goal and purpose. I don't want to be in dating and in relationships just for fun. I don't want to be in dating and in relationships just so I'm not single and alone. I have a purpose for it all.

I can't wait until I find the guy who is perfect for me but until then I'll be single and I'm totally okay with that.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
