Dating, I’m breaking up with you.
I used to make this claim on a weekly basis. I would proceed to get bored and recreate my profile on dating apps and mindlessly swipe on random faces.
Today I declare: I am done.
Why you may ask?
Well, first I want to state, that there is absolutely nothing wrong with doing this. I think online dating can be a great way to find someone that you might not ever run into before.
But for me, I think I was looking at the wrong ways, looking for something like I’ve had before. Wanting to find my person, and taking it personally when they didn’t want me back. So it’s time to focus on me and develop as a person.
I’m done going on dates trying to find someone I want to spend all my days with. Personally, I think I am TOO young to be on the search. If it happens it happens.
I want to travel, and run and climb and lift. Lay on the couch after work snuggled up to my cat. I want to go on adventures by myself, fly across the country and the world. I want to stay up late drinking wine with my friends and watch Bachelor in Paradise while live tweeting it.
Not to say you can’t do these things when you have a significant other, but I feel right now I am searching for someone to fit into my life, when I truly believe when the time is right that person won’t have to fit in my life, because they will already be there.When the time is right that person won't have to fit in my life, because they will already be… Click To Tweet
So for now, no more Bumble, Tinder, Coffee Meets Bagel, or whatever the heck. Right now, it’s time to be selfish. Time to explore life. And time to figure out who I am and how I want to contribute to this world.
