But it seems that is what many of us are lumped with. The most shocking part? Just how quickly we get bored. The research found that women who had been in a relationship for more than a year were getting fed up.
Twelve months. One single year.
Perhaps it’s because of the way we’ve been socialised. We are taught to constantly reinvent and reinvest. A dress that you’ve had for a year isn’t exciting any more, you need a brand new one. Your athletic figure honed last summer? So behind the times. Now you need a massive bum and tiny tits.
We’re expected to be in perpetual motion, changing and improving all the time. As a woman, newer is always better. You should be constantly working towards your ‘perfect’ hair colour, career and partner. The idea of being comfortable with something static, is a totally alien one.
