Keep going on or leave it?
I met this guy on Dec 2010 in an office. We realized that we have feelings for each other, and we owned up for it. However, I have many things on my mind that I can't accept him as my lover...for now. He's a year older than me, but he hasn't had a steady career yet. We live in culture in which a man play role as a leader of family and has a steady economy on his own. People who have the same age as mine can't just going out with anyone she likes, in other word, I have to start to get serious to pick up someone as my boyfriend with all the considerations. I know that my parents want the best for their children (and I believe most parents will do too) and I can't blame them for it... remembering I will be a parent too someday.
\What is the problem? We come from different economy background. It doesn't matter where he come from actually, but his family background shows that they aren't quiet able to make an above-average of life-style. They came from suburbs and rent a small house in this town, they have to gain income painstackingly, and live a very simple life-style. That's why, I can't introduce him as my lover in front of my parents. I don't wanna hurt my parent by insisting him as my lover with such a condition. I try hard to be realistic and won't let my feeling controls me more.
He wanna find a better job with better income, and I still encourage him doing it. I don't look for a rich guy, but I prefer someone who is diligent, has a passion for working, and independent both personally and financial.
Well, some friends of mine gave advice that I should get it over because if I get it too far, it'll hurt me so much.
Deep in my heart, I hope he'll get a better life and economy condition that could convince my parents and show them that he's independent in terms of financial.
What if he can't make it on time... or should I keep on waiting?
