Yeah. Had I gone for the first few options I had, I'd be miserable today. Not only were they not right for me, but I didn't even know what was right for me at first.

I just figured an energetic hottie was all I needed, but it was more for impressing everyone else rather than what I really wanted and needed. That worked for a while. Lots of ego during social events and excitement afterwards, but aggravation on the phone and when trying to tolerate each other any other time. It was ok when I was far too busy to even consider "quality time" with anyone or anything outside of school, work, or sleep. But, getting older and seeing a bigger picture changed everything. You start looking for someone you can 100% live with, not someone you can 5% boast about.

Don't forget to live before you die.
