Readers, can this relationship last?
I've been seeing this great guy for a couple of years now. He is really incredible: smart, cool, great dresser, really ambitious, kind of exotic in a cool way. Did I mention he's cool? And a good listener who really respects my point of view (though, to be honest, he never seems to change his mind). Different from my usual type, I admit, which is more mature, square, and straightforward. You know, boring. I felt like I needed a change and boy did I get it!
So what's the problem? All my old friends think he's a jerk who is just using me, and they tell me so in no uncertain terms. They point out that some of his friends are kind of shady (which is true, but he is so over them now --- he told me himself). And we do disagree about a few things, like children --- he called them a punishment, which is kind of harsh, though maybe I can see his point. And they say he wants to take my stuff and run my life. But would that be so bad? I mean, he is really smart.
So what should I do? I hate to part ways with my friends but this is the chance of a lifetime. And I'm sure he will be different once we formalize our relationship. I can bring him around on those things we disagree on. It will definitely be worth the effort! There is so much promise there!
And my friends are not cool at all. I see that now. So small loss, really.
Thanks for listening!
