I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

    Definitely the organic.

    I *want* to be married. But am also aware that I'm sometimes a bit.... difficult... to get along with in a relationship. I've met/dated a bunch of great guys who helped me learn some of the traits needed to have a relationship work, as well as why things didn't work with those specific men, and I hope to find the relationship which will last.

    But I won't stress myself out over it, and actually actively putting effort into looking has always failed me.

    I want to have kids, and will have kids... but there's no biological clock urge going on. I am about 2 years from the timeline I decided about 20 years ago of when I'd want to foster/adopt if I hadn't married and had kids with someone by then. If I meet a man, awesome, but if not I'll foster and have family support in helping give a kid or two a home they deserve to have.

    When I was much younger:
    The Trailblazer: A woman who knows married life is not for her, so she's trying to break a new kind of path to happiness.

    When I was single in my mid twenties:
    The Free Spirit: She worries that she can only have one or the other — her independence or a committed relationship. (And she thinks the former is better.)

    Now that I have a boyfriend I plan to be with forever:
    The Organic: She prefers to leave things up to destiny and live her own life rather than hunting for men in any methodical or calculated way.


    So basically, I went from and "I'm never getting married! Marriage is for people who can't do anything interesting with their lives!" mindset, to a "Oh man, I can either have an interesting life or get married...I guess I'll stay single for ever" to a "Well, now I found the right guy, so I guess I'll just go with the flow and if we get married, we get married".
    "I don't know! I don't know why I did it, I don't know why I enjoyed it, and I don't know why I'll do it again!" -BART SIMPSON

    The Organic.

    Actually, that little blurb describes a lot of other areas of my life, too, although sometimes I do wish I were more aggressive in getting the things that I want. I just don't enjoy being stressed out, so I often opt for the more peaceful & drama-free path.

    Princess in waiting or none.

    The Organic resonates the most by far. I really like a good friend of mine, so sometimes I feel like the Princess in Waiting, but it's illogical. He's not taking his royal time. We're on two different paths and it's healthiest to acknowledge they may never meet up. 90% Organic, 10% princess in parallel universe from possible prince :blackeye:

    It just has never seemed right to hunt for men in a methodical or calculated way. Letting it happen, yet certainly being open and alert to opportunities feels natural.

    Organic with some Town Tebel and Free Spirit as well. I'm kinda just doing my own thing right now. I've never been one to chase a man, mostly because I get nervous and shy. Case in point, I was @ Marshall's today and saw this cute guy and inside of smiling when he looked in my direction, I just kinda stared right back and shuffled off to the dressing room to try on some shirts.

    I figure I'll meet someone that I really like at some point. Right now I'm more worried about working and my side projects.

    I know someone who is a soulmate seeker and a princess in waiting, but mosty she is a late bloomer.
    Late bloomer to the extreme. It has to be seen to be believed. She has literally arrested her development at finishing college. She likes a guy, but instead of taking it to the next level (talking to him, going out on a date), she stalks the guy and takes any and every mundane action or hint of attention as a come on or an expression of love.:silent:

    It's.....really unhealthy to say the least.
