You stumbled into the family den of relationships: Your previous partners were solid, dependable, salt-of-the-earth types, and probably not a whole lot of fun. The problem was in your mismatched aims. Though you're ambitious in your own way, driven to travel, study and communicate with others, you didn't have the same 9-to-5 mentality that your sweeties did.
You bagged yourself some hard workers, and while that's great for mundane stuff like paying the bills, it didn't leave a whole lot of room to throw everything up in the air and trot off to Paris for the weekend. You craved more excitement. You wanted more fun. You complained to your friends that your lovers were so sweet, but such a drag.But there were sides to the situation you forgot to consider. What you had was stable and real, something that could have lasted -- and you can find this again. You want the type of relationship that can be a wonderful foundation to build a family upon. Whoever said one person should meet all of your needs? Keep your fun friends and look for another serious sweetie; there are many facets to you, and your ideal lover will help you polish one of the most important ones.
