People have been asking me a lot of I’m in a relationship or dating at least. When I say “I’m not really looking,” there’s a look of confusion on their faces. Is it an inappropriate response from a woman approaching 30? My approach to dating has always been “hands off” meaning I’m never actively looking - what does that mean anyway - , but I am open if I meet someone worth my time. Time is invaluable. I think the people who ask might be concerned that I am closing myself off since I want to start my own business.
My priority is my business right now, not finding a husband and trying to start a family. I can’t control when I’ll find the right guy, but I can control the work I do. I am going to spend a majority of my day working for the rest of my life, it is part of my identity. A guy or children won’t change that. Single or taken, the third box in the above image will remain checked for as long as I have passion for my work.
