I feel really frustrated right now. I went on a few dates with this guy, but there was no spark after the initial "oh, a guy noticed me!" phase. I'm not sure that he felt any spark either. I never felt like being physically affectionate with him, let alone intimate with him. We went dancing once and it just didn't feel like it usually does when I'm dancing with someone I'm interested in. We have some interests in common and it's pretty easy to talk to him, which does not happen often for me and mainly the reason why my family seems to think that I should just go ahead and marry this guy.

"Friendship can turn into love," they say.

Yes. I'm pretty sure I figured that out BEFORE you recited it to me a dozen times. I'm keeping my mind open, I'm not pushing the guy out of my life, but I'm not going to fall in love with him just because you think it's about time that I found someone. I know you have my best interests in mind, but I promise I'm not going to become a crazy cat lady or witchy career woman who winds up forever alone.

While it might not seem like it to you, what I'm doing right now is in hopes that, when the right person does come along, I will also be the right person for them.
