My expectations at my age: Happily married to the girl of my dreams, discovered the meaning to life & found peace with myself.
My reality: Constantly facing disappointments on dating apps, discovering that life is full of contradictions & struggling with my inner demons >:) <— That is my attempt at a demon face.
I learn that to be truly happy, ideally my expectations = reality. Lowering my expectations is not an option and the perfect reality feels so out of reach.
I still try to be hopeful and hope you will be available for me 🙂
Dear Andy Johnson
Firstly, I’d like to invite you to remove age from the equation, especially when it comes to the matters of the heart. When you put an age or time to such a precious and delicate life goal, it adds on unnecessary pressure that will probably make you more upset than you should, especially when things don’t go your way.
I wouldn’t recommend lowering your expectations either since you seem rather clear the kind of girl you want to spend the rest of your life with. Use this time when you are single to figure out who you are and will be, and work towards a better version of yourself. When the right one comes along, you will have so much to offer to the girl of your dreams (and hopefully vice versa).
Trust the universe to have your back and lead you to the girl of your dreams when the timing is right!
p.s. >:0 → this looks more evil!
