Bengali girls dating
I’ve mentioned before how lucky I am to have such incredible friends; they are like my little supporters cheering me on from the sidelines. My friends have secure jobs in industries that people are more familiar with; the general 9 to 5.
They are also the ones who have had a stern word or two with me to tell me to stop going overly above and beyond with little return. And I know they want the best for me, but they don’t understand why I ‘choose’ to sacrifice sleep, especially for those who may not appreciate my hard work.
We respect each other, support each other, care for each other’s family and friends and live a simple, but happy life; full of travel and laughter.
I know everyone dreams of the whole package, but to be honest with you (and I’m not just saying this to sound like a ‘great’ person), but I really don’t care about the materialistic things – house, car, latest gadgets, etc.

It’s something I’ve seen happen in my own family as well as others, from the beginning of time.
I feel really weird writing this, but I have a feeling it’s something that people don’t tend to talk about but will be able to relate to. Someone who is always in my corner, who has my back and is my little cheerleader in everything I do.
I know the simple answer to this problem would be to put myself out there and take this whole ‘looking for a life partner’ thing seriously. I know no one really does, but I have a feeling I will take it to heart, maybe a bit too much when I’m already feeling vulnerable.
