some search

The matrimonial express is gaining speed but still hasn't found either its bearings or its destination. I'm stuck in the middle reading pathetic profiles and comparing people to someone else.
I'm not certain I'm ready to settle down, and I'm sure that none of these people are the ones I'd choose if I were.

The whole business is just making me sick to my stomach.

Why are you doing this? To please your parents? As an escape from something? Out of frustration with your alternatives?

A little of all, now that I think about it. Well, the first two. What does "alternatives" refer to in your question?

Alternatives, I think, means what you will do should you not get married right away.

A job, perhaps? Grad school?

If it makes you sick to your stomach (and I can't imagine it not sickening anyone sensible), why do you do it? Is it worth it? Really? You're trading the comfort of certainty for the certainty of discomfort.

Ah. Then "frustration with my alternatives" just about sums it up.
The problem is that I'm not sure what I want either professionally or personally, and the pressure from the parental units is entirely because they want either one, or both, to be resolved...
And it is unfortunately easier to let them look at matrimonial profiles than it is to figure out other things.

As Pink Floyd said, "They flutter behind you, your possible pasts". But there's deja vu in this for me.

One should let parents read matrimonial profiles, it keeps them amused and out of trouble. 'tis man management.
