Letting go of my dating type was the best decision I ever made for myself.
Anyone that asks you to cut ties with those closest to you is trying to control your life. My advice: run.
Whether it’s a back rub, taking out the garbage, or surprising them with their favorite slice of cake, keep showing your appreciation for them.
When you decide to date someone, you’re not only committing to a relationship with who you see in front of you, you’re committing to their past too.
Dating is beautiful, emotional, vulnerable, and scary wrapped up into one. And because of this mixture, the questions once labeled “taboo” make complete sense and are within your right to ask.
I can tell you one thing for sure: You’re not going to meet someone while sitting on your couch binging The Witcher—unless your sink breaks and the plumber is looking mighty fine.
After years of this vicious cycle and experiencing my worst bout of depression, I realized things needed to change; my current way of living clearly wasn’t working.
A relationship is a tricky place to allow your self-worth to reside.
My current life mantra is “Fuck it, I’m doing it anyway.”
Your happiness is your responsibility.
