You asked, "How did you find one so fast, and how did you keep him?"

I made something up, you caught me off guard and the answers that came to mind, I had a feeling you wouldn't appreciate.

Here's the real answer . . .

"I didn't settle, if that is what you are asking. You and I were very similar in many ways, but we weren't compatible in the more important areas of life with that serious of a relationship. I had goals, things I want to do with my life, and you do not. There really isn't anything wrong with that, live and let live, everyone has their own definition of happiness after all, but it's not for me. I found someone who wants to do things with their life. You shouldn't have had someone come in and say,'you need hot water, running water, a sink, a bathroom' if that is not what you want for yourself. You should find someone who walks into your house and says instead, 'I've always wanted to live a miminalist lifestyle.' How did I keep him? Surprisingly, or not, he knows it might not last, he knows we're both 23 and not sure of where our lives are going to take us. He's more mature than you, and we let the relationship evolve instead of rushing into things neither of us were ready for."
