Most people define their life into relationships. For Instance:
“I remember my first kiss. It was (insert dorky name). We didn’t know what we were doing, but my heart still skipped a beat.”
“Oh yeah. In high school I was with (insert name), but then once I hit the middle of college I moved on and met (insert name of more attractive person).”
My life, however, is defined by TV shows.
“I used to be far more into The Simpsons, but after the middle seasons I kinda moved on.”
“I remember my first marathon. It was Stargate SG-1. I didn’t know what I was doing and before I knew it, the sun had come out.”
“Oh yeah. In high school I was into Teal’c, but then in college I moved on to Jason Momoa.”
“I’ve just started watching The Arrow, and I’m never going back!”
“I’m completely committed to Game of Thrones, but sometimes I just can’t handle the way the day always ends so up in the air… Is there something I’m not getting?”
This also related to the level of commitment I’m ready for.
For instance, the show Lost. That was never going to work. I mean I have school and friends to be around and I just can’t have the emotional baggage hanging around me constantly. Plus the time commitment along with the amount of time it takes to figure out what the hell is happening and what will happen the following week. It just wasn’t meant to be.
