Forget about being a Hipster. Are you a Choister?

“Like everybody who is not in love, he thought one chose the person to be loved after endless deliberations and on the basis of particular qualities or advantages.”
Marcel Proust

Sometimes we are just bogged down with too many choices, and we forget to look around us and be happy with what is already around us. This is especially true with relationships. How many of us broke up with someone because we thought we could find someone else better?

Here’s an excerpt from a blog post by Claire Williams:

Today’s twenty- and thirty-somethings approach life and love very differently than past generations. The explosion of choices now available has impacted our desires and expectations, and led us to reconsider traditional decisions. Young men and women are increasingly reluctant to make the ultimate commitment and get married, and much of that is due to all the other glittery options out there competing for our attention – friends, professional success, 30 Rock, the people in the world you haven’t yet dated.

If you love choices and think the world is your oyster, you’re a choister.

Hey, y’all, you don’t have to be so choosy. Just make sure your expectations are truly important. Don’t limit yourself to only dating people who love Wilco (although that is rather important). And don’t be afraid to commit, either!
