Everyone tells me the same things, they tell me I'm “too young to want to settle down” or that I should “keep my options open" or "you're beautiful and young... just have fun and date".
But I've had fun. I have dated. And I'm ready for so much more.
I know that there are some girls out there who enjoy going to bars, parties, and living the single life.
And hey, that's great for them, but it is definitely not for me.
I'm sure I'm not the only girl in the world who wants to race to the finish line and open up a tiny square box with a shiny little diamond in it.
I have been through things in my life that have led me to where I am today and where I want to be tomorrow.
I have found the most amazing guy and I know that I want to spend the rest of my life with him.
Instead of climbing up a mountain, which would be exhausting, I'm shouting it here.
I honestly cannot wait to start the rest of my life with him, officially.
And I know, many people in their twenties are just beginning the "YOLO" phase where they get to see all of their options and let loose without any judgment and don't want to be "tied down."
Which is cool, do you boo boo.
But for me on the other hand... Tie me down. Like, preferably with one of those secure army knots that will never come undone.
Seriously... I'm so ready.
I enjoy my life, and I know that I could enjoy it even more with this amazing guy by my side for the rest of my life.
I've always seemed to be a bit mature for my age and I understand all the things they are telling me I will miss out on.
But it's worth it if that means being with this guy forever.
I’m not saying that I'm ready to settle down just because I love him that much. Don't get me wrong, I really do.
But I’m seriously ready to settle down because when I envision the rest of my future, he’s the most important part.
He is the biggest star of my future.
So why is it such a big deal to want to settle down early so I can start this life with this amazing man?
