I'm really not sure how I feel about being "scheduled in" to spend time with someone who supposedly loves me. It just feels kinda not romantic.

At the same time, my friends tell me how great I have it. My boyfriend's smart, successful, and not bad to look at Wink I feel like I should just be happy, but...we were supposed to get married and now my ring is sitting in a box on my dresser. I feel like I should do what "normal" people do and just get married and be happy with a white picket fence living in Suburbia. I see my neighbors and their white picket fences and they seem happy. The picket fence lifestyle makes me want to Rainbow Vomit I'm not sure what's wrong with me or what chip is missing that I would rather just be a gypsy, traveling the world, not putting roots down anywhere. Or some weird Grizzly Adams chick who lives in the woods with a bear Hobo Tongue

Awww Jenny, I'm sorry. Are you unhappy? Maybe if you went on a trip to Europe or Japan or something. You sound like you have a lot of wonderlust in your system.

I seem to be allergic to picket fences too Undecided I really don't seem to have mastered this being an adult thing. LadyJane really did do the Grizzly Adams thing though Blush I wish she would pop in. She's cooool. Also you might pick up some tips from her Smile

I'd love to travel more, but due to my boyfriend's work schedule (er...desire to spend all his time working Tongue )--and his not being extremely adventurous--it will be on my own or with friends (which is fine). But it would just be cool to have *him* go with me. But you can't change people, I know this. And maybe I'm the problem in this rship, I dunno. Huh

I do believe in working hard, don't get me wrong--but I also believe in a work-life balance and truly living. Life is meant to be enjoyed and experienced, imo. This is where my bf and I differ. Anyway, outofthereligioncloset posted one of my favorite quotes in the Quotes thread (which actually was my sig line awhile back as well) by Anais Nin: "I must be a mermaid- I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living."

And yes, I have way too much wanderlust for my own good Tongue Wink

RE: Terrible Flirt Thread
jennybee---another of my favorite Anais Nin quotes seems appropriate now:

[Image: 54e72797bdc570f1309878a731fa8770.jpg]

I have a necklace/pendant with a mermaid on it and the words "I must be a mermaid..."

And dancefor2---he probably meant that as a compliment, that you are important enough to him that he sees he needs to schedule time rather than waiting for it to just happen. Guys think differently from us. Hang in there. And marriage does NOT have to equal a white picket fence. It is whatever you two agree it should be. Nobody else has the right to expect it to be anything else. Not relatives, society, me, other forum members...

Jenny you also gotta get what you want from the relationship. Don't feel that you have to fit in with him and his life, he also needs to fit in with you.

I love that quote too! Thumbsup Definitely how I'm feeling at the moment. And I do think he meant well with the "scheduling me in" thing, it's just that when he said I was like...

I agree. I think I might be a little too much for most men to handle though Laugh out load And I want a life that few people want. And I recognize that. So I can either be in a rship with someone who loves and supports me or just go do what I want and wind up a crazy cat lady living on a houseboat in Yellowknife, doing yoga, traveling the world, and going on month long off the grid hikes. Tongue

The problem with my simply taking off and doing that is I like having a man in my life. So I try as best as I can to fit myself into the mold of what most men want their wife/gf/mate to be. But sometimes doing that becomes tiring to maintain. Undecided

I don't know if anyone posted this yet but it's one of my favorite flirt scenes.
