I’m 25, and I’ve never been in a relationship, but I’m hard at work trying to change that. I only forsee one problem: there seems to be an epidemic of people my age getting engaged and married.
My big fear is that the majority of women my age will be of the mindset that “Well, college was the time for me to play the field, and now that I’m finished, the next guy I’m in a relationship with had better be the one to put a ring on my finger.”
Since I didn’t even get to set foot on the playing field during high school and college, I have absolutely no intention on being “that guy”. I don’t even plan to consider getting engaged until I’m 30 at the earliest. My time for playing the field is still ahead of me.
So, when I’m meeting women, and attempting to forge relationships with them, do I have an obligation to inform them of the fact that I will - barring my falling madely in love with them - not even be considering marrying them, and that in all likelihood the relationship will be in the 4 to 6 month range before I decide it’s time to meet someone else?
