How much is dating without drama

A while back, I found myself at a hotel pool party in Los Angeles, crying black mascara tears into my vodka soda.I just had a dramatic, very public fight with my girlfriend at the time.I didn’t feel comfortable unless I was fighting someone, or at the very least, fighting myself.The things I said and did contradicted because it was easier to blame the world and stay the same than it would be to really see myself and make a change.Things weren’t much different with the men I dated.For a long time, I lamented all the damaging relationships I’d been in, as if I was some kind of victim who always got the short end of the stick.I felt the most alive in my relationship during those toxic moments. I lived for those 20 minutes of pure bliss we would experience after a fight. I think because our generation grew up with so many tumultuous couples in the media, like Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, all those forever-fighting TV couples on soapy shows like “Melrose Place” and all the supermodels and rockers of the early 2000s.They all had notoriously tempestuous relationships, but they were all beautiful and claimed that their shared love was so intense, it was just too much to handle sometimes. I wanted to be beautiful and to feel a burning passion for another human being that was so overpowering, it couldn't help but erupt in fiery flames. Chances are, if you're calling your argumentative, toxic relationship “passionate,” you're living in a fantasy, baby.

Shortly after one toxic friendship eroded, I found a new one, like a mythological creature that regenerates its head immediately after it’s cut off.I have a fundamental problem with our socialized health care system based on two facts.The first is that there is a direct connection between one’s health and what one eats, drinks and thinks.We all realize how much drama can sabotage an otherwise healthy relationship and why it’s so important to establish and maintain healthy boundaries in order to drama-proof our lives. Men especially tend to see themselves as drama-free zones; even among otherwise egalitarian and feminist men, there’s a tendency to equate “drama” with women.But drama is gender agnostic; men are just as prone to creating unnecessary conflict as women… There’s a saying I’m fond of: if you encounter an asshole one day, you’ve met one asshole.
