Since I graduated from college, I have faced the same series of questions at every family function: "Are you seeing anyone special?" someone inevitably asks. "When are you getting married?" another relative needles. And when I give the same old replies (no, not now), they are often followed by affirmations of my youth and declarations that I'm too young to settle down anyway.
Even though these folks are likely covering for their sick obsessions with getting young people down the aisle, I take that sentiment to heart. I've always been told by my parents to not settle too soon, to sample every flavor in the ice cream shop before picking a favorite.
