I think a lot of the stories we hear about women “waiting too long” and then “finding it was too late” are a result of twisted statistics that make good media stories (but aren’t all that accurate). I’m reading a book right now that posits this called Selling Anxiety…check it out.
I grew up in Oklahoma and went to college in Texas, where if you didn’t have an engagement “candlelighting” ceremony by the time you graduated at 22, you were some kind of freak. Needless to say I am now on my 5th proposal, my 3rd engagement…and working on my second marriage (at 29). I have a list of divorced Texans in their 20’s on my best-girlfriend speed dial.
Look, you’re a grown woman. You don’t let peer pressure dictate if you smoke cigarettes or even what you wear anymore, so why the hell would you let “what everyone else is doing” influence one of the biggest decisions of your life? And yes, Kaneisha, there is something majorly to be said for relishing the years that you can bring home as many shoe boxes and watch as much bad VH1 reality TV as you want without some dude there to roll his eyes at you (or worse). You have a rare gift if you have been granted the insight to know what you’ve got before it’s gone – don’t waste that!
The bottom line is that I agree with Wendy. I would ask you to wish me luck “this time” but I am currently attempting to ban that phrase from my vocabulary…
