Dating with an expiration date
It’s no longer enough to meet someone you click with – you have to meet someone whose life trajectory is compatible as well.
Often promising relationships come with an expiration date.
Circumstances separate them, but they continue to cherish the relationship and reach out years later. You get to see the world through someone else’s eyes. If it happens, and you decide to end your relationship when one of you moves, you’ll be prepared.You get to make memories you could never make alone. You may mourn the loss, but it won’t feel like someone has thrown your heart on the ground and stomped on it. Each of these women has wondered whether they should sit out the next year and avoid dating because they faced a built-in expiration date.For most 20-somethings, it’s a familiar dilemma – college students face similar challenges during junior year when many study abroad, and again as they prepare to separate at graduation.
