Dating a desi
It was not that I did not feel comfortable with my partner, but it was the idea of me relying on someone else, other than myself. I tend to self-sabotage certain areas in my life, not because I’m not ready for it, but because if I hurt myself, then I can live with it, but the idea of someone I love breaking me down, that’s bothersome.But my most recent relationship taught me that it is safe to slowly open up and rely on someone else from time-to-time. More so, the idea of another person having that much of an affect over me, really scared me.Growing up as a middle child, I learned to be independent at a very young age. I learned to follow my heart and gut, rather than listen to the opinions of those around me.I applied to college on my own and planned my future without the consent of my family.But I never really understood it until my last relationship.If you find yourself dating an independent woman, keep in mind that she will take some time to let her guard down, share all of her feelings or ask for help right away.
Also, naturally, being the middle child, suffering from middle child syndrome, I bottled things up.
That’s a whole lot of Indian people potentially looking for love!
