XOXO, Michael Brown

More stories from Michael Brown

The readers submitted some questions about life, love and everything in between. I answered them as honest as I knew possible. I’m here to keep it real with you when no one else is and to answer with no judgment because I don’t know you. I’m just a college junior who enjoys giving his opinion. Here are some of the questions I got this week:

How long would you date someone without a sense of direction towards commitment or marriage?

Well, I’m getting old, so I don’t have time to keep playing with these people. I want to get married one day and all that beautiful stuff. If its been more than three months and you’ve been seeing a person but there has been no sign of any commitment, it may be time to get to the bottom of things. I need to know rather you want a relationship or what. Don’t waste my time. Marriage is another story; it is an extremely serious commitment and something that one shouldn’t rush into. Do it when the time is right. I know personally I want to be married no later than 30.

What do you think about religion and science?

Personally, I’m religious. So I believe in God and the Bible. I believe that God created man. I’m also not judging those who don’t and choose to believe more in science. Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinions and beliefs.

Are people born homosexual or do they choose to be that that?

Personally I don’t see why this is something people are asking still? Why would anyone honestly think someone just wakes up one day and thinks I’m going to be queer? Hands down I believe you’re born that way, I know I was. I would never wake up and choose to be gay. It’s not something easy to be. Did you choose to be straight?

What are the most important things in life? What do you believe you have to achieve in life to feel complete?

I’m not really sure how to answer this one. I think It’s extremely important to be happy with who you are in life. You need to have this sense of self worth. You need to be able to make yourself happy and know what it is that makes you happy. I don’t think a person’s happiness should depend on another person. I’m not saying another person can’t mean a lot to you and make you happy, but that shouldn’t be your end all be all. Personally I will feel complete in life when I have traveled more and experienced all of what the world has to offer. Also when I find true love, the kind that takes your breath away. I believe I will truly feel complete when I find that I was able help another person with my story and just being myself.

Sex, Marry, Kill: Dolly Parton, Whoopi Goldberg, and Roseanne.

I’ll marry Whoopi, kill Roseanne and I’m going to have sex with Dolly Parton I guess. Honestly all of them kind of gross me out.

To have your question answered you can drop them off in the labeled box in the Parthenon lab for next week, email them at [email protected] or tweet @MUParthenon with #xoxomichael.
