It's not too far away, but it's long enough for me to meet someone, actually get to know them, and figure out if I want to spend my life with them beforehand. This is always good.
I'll be 28 then, which isn't *too* far away, but realistic enough to make this goal seem reachable.
This also gives me a great idea that surely someone has done before but I could put a spin to. Put a deadline to marriage. Try to reach it despite being very single. Even better if it's 3/14/15 or some equally geeky date.
Why are my best ideas these days always romcoms, despite being very single?
I predict headlines surrounding weddings on this date as 3/14/15 approaches. I also predict drama from the non-Americans.
(And to think I normally write the date the other way, and I *am* American.)
(And yes, that's a Saturday, which is PERFECT.)
