I grew up very career-driven and achievement-oriented. To me relationships
come and go, but personal achievements and career, these two go together.
Seeing and hearing of couples part ways after 3, 5, 10, or even more years
simply re-enforced the transient nature of relationships in my mind and that
I shouldn’t invest too heavily in something that wouldn’t last. Not wanting to
be in a relationship for the sake of it, I always believe that there is a special
someone out there for everyone. I felt I owed it to myself to give love a
serious stab because truth be told, I had been putting love on hold all my life.
