I don't think Tommy and I broke up directly over that, but it was certainly much to do with the fact that he simply wasn't grown up or responsible enough. He's also the only person I've dated [since I was seventeen] that was younger than me, and the only person who wasn't at least a couple of years older.
But that's not the point of this post. Let's ignore the outlier for a moment.
Since I was seventeen, I haven't had a relationship with anyone who didn't hold a bachelor's degree -- at least. I've also dated several grad/law students, a lawyer, a Ph. D. Does this mean I find education sexy? Lack of education a turn-off? Is it smarts or is it degrees? Should I expect that others want the same thing? I only have an AA and that seems a little unfair that I would expect people of higher education levels to date me. Is it because I generally go for older men? Why DO I generally date older men?
I don't know that I'm ready for the things that I thought recently I was ready for. Or what if I just have too much on my plate to even decide whether I am ready for anything?
I think too much.
