As a father, if my daughter comes to tell me that her dream is to marry a poor guy, I will feel that I have invested in her in vain.
Are you just giving up? Have you ever, in the middle of a fight or particularly painful moment in your relationship, flashed to the idea of “just breaking up” as a way to end the problems?
Many of us are still looking for The One – the guy we will spend the rest of our lives with. Our soul mate who will be there for us all the time, loving us, comforting us, sharing moments with us and protecting us.
So, you have a crush. It makes you as crazy as it does happy. One moment you think all hope is lost, and then there’s that one text message that means it’s back on. You scheme and you plot (because we all do it) on how to play the game.
