Singleness Season

To level with you straight, I am a serial dater. I don't mean that I date lots of guys at one time, I mean serial dater as in I always am dating somebody. I have not been single for more than three months since 8th grade so we are talking about over 84 months. A bit ridiculous considering Mr. Right has not been one of them clearly.

I did some self-digging a while back and found that one of the hidden roots to this problem stems from the fact that my dad passed away when I was in the 8th grade, so having a male in my life to talk through things is like a security blanket. And carrying around a blanket for a gal my age is a bit much.

So, in keeping in line with of my life changing moves (and being slightly urged/encouraged by my friends) I am starting a singleness season.

For the next six months, I am not allowed to date anyone. Not to say that if the perfect for me person comes along, I can't be friends with him, but no one on one dates/talk on the phone every day kind of relationships for me.

I need time to discover who I am without another person. To grow independently.

To be honest, I am scared to death that 25-year-old me is going to just die alone (I jokingly/not really jokingly say to my mother every time a guy and I break up). But, I need to learn that it is important just to be me.

So folks, over the course of the next few months I will begin all kinds of new journeys, a new town, a new job, a new apartment and a new season of singleness which is the one that truly scares me the most. I have some goals that I will try to will accomplish during this time that I can't wait share with you soon!

Gulp!

  1. Your blog is stunning, I just found it and I´m in love with it! :)

    I think changes are hard but good for us in the end. I really hope you discover yourself in the next few months. Sometimes we need to know ourselves and more important.. learn to love ourselves.

    I look forward to reading your blog! (I´m gonna read your olders posts to catch up so I´ll be entertained!)

    Have a good day!

  3. I'm in the same boat here... Broke up a few weeks ago, moving to new town, new experiences and new goals. Being single for six months is a great idea. I think i will do the same. Looking forward to follow your journey :)
