this post is from years ago
why did you go digging it up
if someone says to you that they plan on getting married someday, and you don’t even bat an eye
but another person says they plan on never getting married or carrying on a long-term relationship, and you feel the need to say “well, you don’t KNOW” that or “maybe that will change someday, when you meet the right person”
you are an asshole with really annoying double standards and i feel like this should be self-evident
but the idea of having a Life Partner (or at least, of having an active sex and love life) is so normalized that you start perceiving every person who’d legitimately rather be alone as someone in crisis who needs some kind of intervention
and it’s true, of course i don’t know what will happen in the future! perhaps I WILL meet someone who will be great for me, and that will be just dandy!
but it’s also just fine to end up alone
and you shouldn’t flip shit if I sound certain that i’ll end up alone
because I KNOW you wouldn’t get so upset if I sounded equally certain that i’d get married
okay? make sense yet?
i’m going to bed
