Essentially. I am who I am. Because I've learned from each past relationship I've had. Or reflected a lot about it. Mainly the female relationships.
But what I've learned from each of them is how to be more prepared for the next GF. Unfortunately I also put my guard up. And to look for that "Perfect" partner. Because I won't just fall head over heals for any female. And I definitely want my Marriage to mean something and to LAST forever, if I so choose to make that decision. I really feel everyone jumps the gun on getting married. Marriage is a celebration of life. TOGETHER. Which doesn't mean you have to do it RIGHT NOW. Sure, if you're so certain that you can last your entire life together.
Maybe most can.
