Was almost a year a go when I dated for the first time this wonderful woman (Exactly a Friday, may 7th 2013), super smart, about to graduate from college, very passionate about her things. Dedicated to her work, a workaholic if you ask me, very self disciplined and, apparently, in full control of her self.
She had this idea of only dating people who were centered, smart, trust worthy, ambitious, independent and with a career, not really caring if he was good looking or not.
We were very different at some levels, she was very methodical, had this obsession for controlling every single detail. Unlike me, being completely spontaneous about the way I drive my self trough life; but at the same time we were both very passionate about what we liked. We did share these amazing conversations, we were very passionate about each other, when together at least. I remember loving walking around just holding hands and let the world spin around us at its very rushed pace. We, literally, didn’t care about any one else while together, and we both hated when the time came to get out of that little ‘bubble’ we created every time.
Anyway I remember one of those conversations where I asked her if she would had dated me if I didn’t have a career, me knowing the real answer, she dared throwing a: ‘I don’t know’ and I replied: ‘we both know you do, and that you wouldn’t had done it’
Putting the outcome of that conversation a side, I wonder, ever since, do we need a resume to give love a chance? some people would say: ‘well, I need to make sure I am with a good person and he/she has a future’ or things like: ‘well, I wouldn’t like being with some one who holds me back on my professional and personal life’. All of them make perfect sense, I think, but I also think its completely boring.
I wonder, even more now a days that not even big corporations worry about big titles and rather have a young, talented person working for them, since when is this a factor that should allow or disallow people finding true happiness? It is said that the human being, by nature, needs to feel loved and cared, then why does this has to be limited by such a vane thing as a career tittle? are we gonna start getting paid based on what we have studied throughout life? is the amount of love limited to what a piece of paper says? did the prince get married to the reporter because of her great resume and/or talent? because lets face it, she was the big winner on getting married to him.
If some one seems to have an answer to this, please, I beg you, try to convince me and make me see why this should be a priority in a persons life when searching for a couple for happiness.
