I wonder what I'll find out next!

Life Stages


(I wrote this on January 15, 2003)

Some broadly defined, general life stages that people go through, with regard to relationships (and careers). I don't want to associate each stage with a particular age, because people go through these stages (or don't) at their own paces.

(1) I have no idea what I want, but I keep trying to find something anyway.

(2) I know exactly what I want, and this is not it. Neither is that. When will I find what I want? Will I ever find what I want?

(3) I found it, exactly what I want, yay, all mine!

(4) What I wanted ... was not what I thought it would be. I want something else.

(5) I don't know what that something else is, but if it looks or smells anything like what I had before, I'm running away.

(6) OK, I've learned my lessons! Now I know exactly what I want again. When will I find what I want? Will I ever find what I want?

(7) I found it, exactly what I want, yay, all mine!

(8) What I wanted ... was not what I thought it would be. I want something else.

(9) Maybe nothing is exactly what I want. Maybe nothing is what I thought it would be.

(10) OK, this will do.
