deal breakers

I am of the age where the weddings I have attended over the years, the couples are either having children now or filing for divorce. This next set of landmarks has got me thinking about deal breakers. As we have gotten older has our list of deal breakers gotten longer? or has the fear of growing old alone made us cross things off? Has maturity made us more forgiving or stupid?

I don't go to many weddings, and the ones I have attended recently the people already had at least 2 kids together.
Deal breakers. God. There's a lot I am willing to put up with. Yes, I have a list as long as my arm, but it doesn't necessarily mean that something wickedly awesome about a person won't cancel some of them out.
I am less afraid of being alone than I am of compromising myself these days. That feels pretty good.

Very wise Ceejay.
Took me more years than you to realize that its not a good idea to hook up with someone cause you're afraid to be alone, or because you 'need'.
Once being alone is okay, then you can hook up cause you want.
