I have a few years under my belt as member of the Single Life Gang. Sad to say, it took me awhile to fully embrace my singleness but I must say it has its perks. Freedom to do what you want when you want, enjoying being selfish with my time, the fun of dating and meeting new people, and finding your likes and dislikes in an ideal companion. You know, the things you’re supposed to do in your 20’s.
Honestly, the dating scene is fun but it gets boring. As often as women are approached, it’s hard to decipher who is truly interested from the ones who want to see “if they still got it“. (Yep! A guy friend of mine spilled the beans so I’m on to them) Finding those guys who takes the effort to pursue you is a lost technique these days but there are a some out there; I’ve encountered my few. Nice guys, fun dates, great convo – you know.. some of the basics to catch your attention but something about it just didn’t click. Which isn’t an issue to me because I know everyone can’t be a fit. The trial and error of it all gets monotonous, you know?
I’m getting to the point where I am becoming more and more selfish with my time. At half-way to 27, I require a lot more out of a future relationship. Like patience, understanding, balance, growth and a lot of maturity. Which I will get because I’m a beautiful successful woman who deserves it and won’t waste my time on half-stepping. *two snaps*
However, I must say now that I’ve finally embraced it, I’m enjoying the single life! I’ve learned a lot about who I am, as I patiently wait for that lucky guy to be strategically placed in my path. I had some good experiences along the way. Some memories to hold on to and some stories to tell in the future. I’m growing a lot through my single years and falling more in love with myself everyday. The journey is exciting and I’m loving having a front seat view..
