My Love Life.....A Confession

OK, I can't believe I'm sharing this with everyone in the Face-Twit-Verse but I'm going to confess something about my love life.

I've never been in a real relationship.

True story.  Maybe it's just me but I think it's kinda weird to be a wedding photographer never having been in a relationship before.  Thankfully I'm a romantic at heart.  I actually do love cuddling, short walks on the beach (hey, so what if I'm lazy...), candlelit dinners, etc.  But I've only been in three "relationships" and I don't think they really count...

My first relationship was a one-week stint with a girl in Junior High School.  We talked twice.  Once when I "asked her out" and the second time when she called to break up with me a week later.  My second relationship lasted about two months in High School.  One month while we studied together at Stanford for a summer school program and one month long-distance.  Finally, there was a several month period where I'd regularly see a girl but we were never officially together.  I guess it's because later on I found out I was the guy on the side :/

Actually, I'm kinda surprised I even had any girlfriends growing up.  To put it delicately, I was a huge dork.  Big glasses, straight A's, and very socially awkward.  OK OK, I've still got a few rough edges now but I'm MUCH better.  I didn't have many friends.  I wouldn't really say I had any friends in elementary school and junior high.  In high school, I was the kid who groups would let hang out with them.  But I always felt like I didn't belong.  Not until college did I find an awesome group of guys I bonded with and became great friends with who loved me just how I was.  One of my best friends later told me that when she first met me, "trying to get me to talk was like pulling teeth".  Yeouch!  She said it in love though when I had learned how to conversate. 

Fast forward to today.  I'm 32 years old and totally comfortable with who I am and can embrace the fact I'm that "crazy Asian cat lady" who has two kitties and would rather stay home on weekends than go party at the latest club or bar.  Will I ever meet that special someone?  I don't know.  But I trust that God has a plan for my life and is doing what's best for me.  And if He decides to put someone into my life than He'll do it His way and on His timing.

So that's my story.  A hopeless romantic living vicariously through the couples I photograph. 

What I'm REALLY curious about is what you all think?  Do you think you NEED to be married to be a great wedding photographer?  Or even have been in a relationship?


And before I leave you to ponder these ponderables.... here's my gratuitous kitty shot of the day and how I feel sometimes.
