I had an interesting conversation with a girlfriend the other day.  We were talking about some friends of ours who had been in long term relationships with men who inevitably walked away from the relationship after 5-10+ years.  It’s hard to fathom someone my age, who’s been in a relationship with someone for 10 years who isn’t married or at the least engaged.  These friends ended up wasting all of their 20s with men who had no intention of marrying them.  It’s like the guys they were with chewed them up and spit them out.  These women are jaded now when it comes to relationships.

I don’t get how you can be in a relationship with someone for several years and not know where it’s headed.
