The difference between choosing and simply being the one chosen can make or break a relationship. Far from being selective, I have, for the most part, been selected by every boyfriend I’ve ever had (with the exception of my current beau). Sure, after a month or so of sleeping together, I’d fall madly in love––only to snap out of it around the fourth or fifth month and wake up to the in-your-face realization that I hardly even liked the person I was calling my boyfriend. I’ll never forget sitting in my therapist’s chair, post break-up with this terrible guy (I mean terrible), asking the question, “How did I end up here, again? I felt embarrassed that, at 25, I still wasn’t capable of making healthy romantic decisions. I didn’t want to be living where I was, and I had no idea what sort of career path I wanted to follow.

To take things a bit slower, and assess whether or not the guy is the best choice for me along the way.
