First of All –
Happy Veteran’s Day to all of those who have served, who are still currently serving and those who have given their lives up so that we may be free.
Have YOU Thanked a Veteran today?
Anyways – I spent the morning walking in the parade in town, handing out flags to the public. Yes, it was so cold, my fingers froze and my nose ran. But it was just a really great experience to be walking among the men and women who have served, feeling like I was doing my own duty.
I got to meet one of my cousins I’ve never even met on my Dad’s side of the family. Great guy. Then, there was another guy who’s name I’ve sadly forgotten. And then there’s this other guy. A few years older than me. Really… cute? If I say adorable, I dunno how a guy would react to that. Anyways. He seems really great. He’s single as well.
I mean – don’t get me wrong. I’m not in a huge rush to get into a relationship and get serious. But if it happens, it happens. I mean, I still plan on living my life how I want, living my dreams. I’d just like to be with someone who won’t purposely try to hold me back, tell me I can’t do something. I want someone who can/will tell me that I can do anything, if I put my mind and heart into it. I’d like support (not necessarily financial, but like a “you can do it!” kind of support) in things I’d like to do, just like I want to be able to support them in their own dreams. Be their Team cheer-person. Cheesy, I know.
I mean, I don’t want some poor example of the men in some of my distant family who don’t know how to treat any female with respect, who hinders others from their goals, and are controlling. I don’t want an alcoholic. My Father is/was one. I don’t want that same experience. I deserve better.
Someone who know’s how to have fun without thinking he’s the best thing out there. Someone who wouldn’t cheat on me, or lie to me. I’d rather you tell me the truth about everything, than be lied to. If I was in a relationship or marriage, and the other person didn’t love me anymore, then I want to be told. Not lied to, or cheated on.
I don’t want to be controlled. I wanna be talked to like a normal human being. Because I am.
But anyways. Maybe I’ll go by the guys’ work and I dunno, give him my numbers. Take a shot. Won’t know unless I try.
