I've decided to give the answer to this common question I get asked often.
Why is Kristina single?
(Yes, I just referred to myself in the third person)
Here it goes, try to keep up:
I like to do what I want, how I want, when I want.
I do not want to check in (like I did when I was a kid, living at my moms) nor do I want to have to think of someone else then having to attempt to include them as well.
My career is one of my main priorities and normally when someone comes into the picture, my time is needed elsewhere therefore my priorities start slipping. I prioritize just fine but then the dude wants to text, talk, hang out all the time therefore the amount of time I spend doing work and whatever else, gets pushed aside. Not okay.
Quite frankly, I haven't met anyone that can hang and worth my time. Time is precious. We have so little time in this world and the last thing I want is to feel as if I'm being contained. I refuse to compromise my standards/morals. So many people compromise things they never imagined they would simply because they feel as if they can't have what they really want. So many people have a fear of being alone so they stay with someone they don't really want to be with but it's comfortable.
My advice? Life is too short to not live it the way YOU want to. YOU are in charge of YOUR life. If you're not happy with your life then change it. Your life is worth fighting for.
Call me selfish, just be jealous you don't do what you actually want to do OR … just do it yourself!
