Adam Smiley called today to inform me that over break he proposed to Natalie and will be getting married this summer. This, along with the other people in my life who are married or dating, requires me to contemplate my own status as a single and unattached bachelor (that’s actually redundant, whatever).
Specifically, with only 4 months before I graduate, is now really the time to begin seeking out a relationship? If not now, when? I could theoretically come up with a reason to put off romance for the rest of my life, I think, with one excuse after another precluding me from ever having to become engaged.
At some point, you just have to jump and now seems as good a time as any. Maybe.
(All of this is not to say that I’m going to spend 100% of my time seeking a relationship. But, perhaps, entertain the idea of maybe dating someone.)
