Dating an old boyfriend
Don’t start changing things about yourself to mold into wifey-material, just because he knows he wants to settle down soon.
But the guy I’m dating is focused on taking his career to the next level.
Try a new type of food (and pitch in to pay from time to time), or if you must stay cooped up in the house, pull out the Dominoes.
You don’t have to hit up a nightclub every weekend, but you definitely don’t want to spend too many weekends being the coupled up couch potatoes.
He’s busy studying for a major exam that will allow him to work for whomever he wants and to make the kind of moves and money I probably won’t ever see (hey, columnists weren’t meant to be millionaires).
With all that drive comes a lot of time we don’t get to share together.
Joking from time to time is cool, but don’t get too comfortable trying to blame certain issues on his age.
