People always asked me, "Why doesn't it bother you that you've never dated or had a boyfriend or even been kissed?" To this I smiled, realizing how much these people don't truly understand the meaning of life. The goal to find yourself before finding someone else. I let out a sigh saying, "Because it just doesn't. I don't regret the years I spent finding out who I was and I'm still searching, and how can you love a person when you don't even love yourself?"
Perhaps they didn't understand. Perhaps they let the temptation of desperation and lust control their lives. But I was still young and I still had my whole life to live before I could ever think about adding someone else to it. I wanted to be able to say, "I love myself." before having to say "I love you." I wasn't ready for that and that didn't bother me at all.
