Well for those of you that don’t know- I’ve been single for almost a year to date now. I decided I needed some time for myself after a 5 year relationship ended for the better, I had to figure out what I wanted- more importantly who I wanted in my life.
And no, this is not an “I’m single and I’ve been loving it- here’s why you should too,” kind of blog. To be honest, I haven’t really loved it. I think it’s a topic that none of us really talk about at our age or in our generation. It seems like most of my friends are engaged, getting married, or in a long term relationship.
I was there too. I thought I would be engaged by now. But I know that what I decided to do was for the better for me and for my life.
As a young professional and a very independent young woman, I think that it’s very important to talk about being single. Also, I am truly hoping that some of my stories and advice will be able to help you out. It’s been quite an adventure for me.
There’s been ups, downs, maybe a few tears, bad dates, great dates. Well, a lot of bad dates. I felt like I was coming back into the dating world with zero experience. I left my boyfriend whom I had met in high school 6 years ago. At first I wore my heart on my sleeve and trusted too many guys who didn’t deserve a minute of my time.
All of that has lead me to where I am today- a place that I wouldn’t be without the support of my co-workers, community, friends and family. I want you to know that you aren’t alone. That it is okay to be single, and most importantly that you have to be happy with who YOU are. So you can find a man that is worth your time. Trust me girl, you are worth it.
I can’t wait to continue this series with you! Now… where can I even begin…
