It chose me. I wouldn't have chosen this. In fact, growing up, I didn't want to partner up at all, no marriage, no kids etc. Because watching my parents "monogamous" disaster was enough to convince me that it would be best to just stick to friendships and forego the "undependable" romantic relationships available.
Then hormones started to rage and I was off and running in the disaster we call romance.
At any rate, I love my partners. But-life WAS much easier single.
