Pop Culture break: Dating

So I am once again taking a break from blogging about pop culture to blog about something that is happening in my life: dating. Now, dating is not a new thing. Dating has been done for a million years. We're not re-inventing the wheel here. But, over this past summer, I've dated more than I've dated in a long time. Little bit of disclosure: I had some heartbreak earlier this year and as much as it devastated me, it opened my eyes as well. I had been so opposed to dating, so opposed to getting hurt that I was hiding and when I did fall, it brought out a whole bunch of stuff I was trying to keep buried.  But now, I'm not. And as much of a pain in the ass that dating can be, it can also be quite fun. I've met some very interesting men. There is one who I connected emotionally but who is really hurt still himself. He's a wonderful man, amazingly smart, handsome, funny as hell and I hope he will be in my life forever in any capacity, not just romantic. Another one I met was also very kind but just no spark. Again, very nice, good man. The most recent one not so much-but you have to take the good with the bad. He definitely made me realize I have to follow my instincts and not get sucked in to what sounds good on the surface. But he made me feel adored, we had fun and that was a great feeling to have while it lasted. I will be dating more, I will be keeping my options open but I wanted to address this because A. It's happening and this is my blog and I can write what I want to! and B. Some of my friends are going through this as well and have their own stories-and we're in this together. Our end game is the same but for now, I'm learning to enjoy things as they come. To be open to new experiences and to new people. To not be so guarded and hidden. And it's kind of nice to be honest. I still am hoping for that happy ending but in the meantime, until it comes, I'm going to have fun and enjoy things as they happen. And I wish that for my friends as well. We got this peeps!!! #teamdating

  1. Kelly; We have a niece going through the same thing as you. She relocated with her two sons due to a great job opportunity and is trying to make new friends - with males and females. She was hurt by a man a few months ago but knows to continue thinking positive! Life is difficult at times. Just as you stated...remember to open up...you are a beautiful woman. Lead your life with an Open Heart and someone special will come in .... Probably when you least expect it! Enjoy life....you only live once!
