One of my students told me today that I need to hurry up and meet someone so that I don’t end up alone. I found it so strange because I am only 43 and I feel like I have a lot of life ahead of me. I definitely want to meet someone but it is not my only focus in life. I still have two teenagers that I need to finish raising and I have things I still want to do in my life. I don’t just want to get into a relationship where I am completely tied down. I want to experience life and travel. I would even like to take a job in another country teaching. I think it would be great to just live somewhere else for awhile. I meet people fairly easily but I have noticed that the older I get the pickier I have become about the people that I will get involved with. I am very much my own person and I think that’s okay. I refuse to apologize for the person that I have become. I am secure in my own skin and I think that is what really matters.
