Being single, it’s been…interesting. Dating? Even more interesting. I’m nearly 35 years old and I’m going out to dinner, or out for drinks about every other night (on average – I don’t go out when I have my kids). I’ve learned a few things through this process. First, I don’t know how the girls on The Bachelorette do it. Men are jealous creatures. Tell them you’re not settling down with one person and then they really get jealous. Second, I am not 21 anymore. I am old. I cannot hang. Third, you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find a prince. <sigh> I’m still looking.
At the end of a busy week of dating, I am exhausted. EXHAUSTED. And I really, really just need to spend some time alone and decompress. One of my dates last week equated it to the Bachelorette taking some time to think about who would get a rose before the ceremony. At least that one has a sense of humor about my dating life.
Seriously though, I do have to take some down time to give my brain a break. My current task – Catch up on my Netflix watchlist! The last season of Sons of Anarchy is up, I’m still behind on The Walking Dead and I’m always in need of a laugh from a good comedy! Laughter makes the bad dates a lot more tolerable (and there have been a LOT of bad dates!) Maybe I’ll just start dating Netflix? Can I do that?
Are there any other single moms out there like me? Navigating the dating world and debating the merits of just giving up and having a monogamous relationship with your couch and Netflix instead? I’d love to hear your dating stories… and hear about what you’re watching on Netflix!
