I’m watching an episode of Sex and the City on TBS. It’s the one soon after Carrie and Aiden get back together, and Big calls. Aiden gets upset and starts pulling away, Carrie wants to get “back in the nook.” Towards the end of the episode Aiden tells Carrie that he doesn’t want her to see Big anymore, and she says that she can’t do that. I always thought that was bull shit.
I reblogged this quote earlier today from sarahlane’s tumblr:
“Those of us who choose not to settle in hopes of finding a soul mate later are almost like teenagers who believe they’re invulnerable to dying in a drunk-driving accident. We lose sight of our mortality. We forget that we, too, will age and become less alluring. And even if some men do find us engaging, and they’re ready to have a family, they’ll likely decide to marry someone younger with whom they can have their own biological children. Which is all the more reason to settle before settling is no longer an option.”
I love elle belle’s response.
“DON’T EVER SETTLE. There is nothing lonelier than being with someone and still being so alone. Marrying with the sole intent of raising a family and living the *dream* is soleless and empty. ”
Sounds like a plan. :)
I’ve always loved that quote.

Oh, that’s what I wanted to hear.
- Not sure who said this originally
This quote reminds me of the movie, The Spanish Prisoner. I highly recommend you rent it, but do not read anything about it before watching.
