In the beginning of a relationship everything is always picture perfect, it looks like there are no strings attached and that there is no presure, the atmosphere is relaxed and you are enjoying the company of your “new best friend”. But only a few years afterwards the honeymoon period is over and before you know you are sitting at home and calling Cleaner Wimbledon to come clean the mess that your kids made playing around in your “spacious” townhouse.
Actually being anonymous in London is the thing that attracts many people here, you can always meet new faces, live an unpredictable life and don’t worry that anybody will find out what you have done during the last weekend. You are not the black sheep that stands out of the crowd but you are one of the white ones that live their life unnoticed. Unfortunately anonymity does not give you happiness forever. Sooner or later you start thinking about being serious, having a family, children, nice house and a few good friends to hang out with on Friday nights at karaoke bars. And that’s how being attached starts to be really important. There’s actually nothing to be scared of it is just the natural way that thing are supposed to happen – everybody needs to be attached no matter how hard many try to reject that claim.
So for those of you who are still living alone and would love to keep calling Cleaner Hoxton to do an afterparty cleaning just for themselves, rather than calling Cleaners Wimbledon and booking a regular domestic cleaning for their family house, is impossible to understand the concept of being together. Maybe newly formed couples never think that it can get to that level but just keep it in mind next time you meet somebody whose company you enjoy – things change with time, but changes can be good. So be optimistic and enjoy the company of the person next to you.
