I guess I'm scared--scared to start anew, play these mind games again and get hurt. It also doesn't help that I've never really dated. The manang in me comes out in these situations.
I'm also scared of possibly dating some random guy knowing that his objective is just to get into my pants. How scary is that?! Men have their needs, I know, but please, I don't want to be involved in this hanky panky. I'm not that desperate
I want someone for keeps.
As I wrote in a previous blog entry, I want a romantic relationship born out of friendship. That's why I'd rather meet new people without any expectations rather than go out on a date with someone who's already considering me as a life partner candidate... or someone who just wants to get into my pants.
The Notebook captures my sentiments exactly:
Having a relationship that’s based out of friendship makes your relationship more substantial and less fleeting instead of one based out of infatuation. That’s not to say that “love at first sight” doesn’t exist and can’t develop into a lasting and fruitful relationship.I wish that a new Prince Charming will come. But I'm not really on the lookout. Who knows, he could already be in my midst without anyone noticing. Not even I.
