I dated someone a while back who was absolutely obsessed about me 'staying as young' as possible. As if I could somehow stop time in its tracks. He had a lot of unhealthy expectations; staying young, perky, and skinny (which I'm not built for; medium, athletic, curvy frame). The next girl he dated was super-young and super-skinny. See, people really do tell you who they are. Would have been nice had he just sought out what he wanted in the first place instead of trying to convince me I needed to be something I wasn't.
