Starting Out

My first day on YourTango!

Hello All,

My name is Tiffany, I am twenty-five years old, and I am new to YourTango.  I live in the DC area, have a great apartment, a family I love and the cutest dog.  I know I have a great life.

 

The thing is, I am just starting out, and I am not sure where to go next.  I will finish up my master's degree this spring, and I want to start a new chapter.  I have a boyfriend, and we have been together for two years.  He is a nice guy, and he is a good friend.  As a boyfriend though, he has some issues.  He tends to be a bit selfish and immature, and it often leaves me feeling bad about myself.  I love him though, and I don't want to lose him.  It is a tough spot.  I don't think he will break up with me, which means the ball is in my court.  I just need to decide what I can live with.. and what I can't.  He is my first long-term relationship, and I am scared that without him, I will feel empty.

 

Anyway, enough doom and gloom for now.  I am looking forward to getting to know all your lovely ladies!
