I’ve always believe that if I worked hard, been conservative, educated myself, stabilized my career, financials in order, purchased a home,…etc, then I’d be ready for a relationship. I know what I want, but it just seems like I take one step forward, two steps back kind of thing. I’ve always believed that I have to have something to bring to the table, besides myself, in order to contribute to the relationship. I’m embarrassed to say that, at 53 years of age, I’ve never been in an LTR. I’m not a gold digger, free loader, or looking for a free ride, but I’m also tired of “hitting my head against the proverbial brick wall” trying to make it happen. Am I wrong in thinking that I should continue to wait until I’m stable in order to find someone who has their life together? I’d like the opinion of those who have successful careers and are financially stable. Do you look for the same or does it even matter? I’m educated, sane, employed, conservative, big hearted, but just haven’t reached that point in life where I thought I’d be by now.
