Beverly, an old friend of mine (we know each other from the kindergarden) , can’t stay in a true relationship for long. She says she can’t trust her partner and she always fears he would cheat on her or leave her for another woman. About a year ago, she has started dating a guy she met at a bar, and has taken things really slowly with him since then. She is seeing other guys as well, and doesn’t want to know if his official also sees other women.
When she was 20, she had a serious relationship with one guy during four years. They moved in an apartment together after two years of romance. I always tought she would end up getting married and having children with him. But instead of that, they called it quits because she discovered he was cheating on her.
She admits that this story has completely changed the way she looks at men. And because she doesn’t want to have her heart broken again by an unfaithful guy, she started having relationships with no strings attached.
I wonder how these kind of relationships would end up for her. At 30, she feels no pressure getting married or having kids. But it will certainly change.
