It's so hard not to jump ahead
I'm divorced. My relationship with my ex-husband lasted a good four years before we were married and I thought that was sensible at the time.
But now I'm a bit older and I feel more impatient to settle into a committed relationship. There's this guy I've been dating for a short time, and while I haven't ever talked to him about marriage or kids (because I'm not a psycho girlfriend), I sorta wish I could. I don't like not having a serious partner.
