As a blog that started out as a tool to get over a breakup, and as a blogger who as with other topics writes about various types of relationships, obviously dating is an extension of that.
If you have read some of my past posts, then you would know that I have been attempting dating through dating apps.
Anyway, as stated on my ongoing book list, I recently read What a Time to Be Alone, and followed the Slumflower on Instagram, and this book and the things that she posts reminded me that some of the thoughts that I have had recently about dating aren't crazy.
So here are some of the ways that my views on dating having changed recently and maybe those are ways in which things can change for you too, or act to reinforce thoughts that maybe you have heard as well.
1. I am a prize. - That's a period, a point-blank statement in and of itself. I mantra, a relization.
2. If you aren't adding to my life, you can get out of my life- seriously, no more dealing with people and there crap unless they are worth it. No more doing things just to get people to stick around. It's either be an addition or be out.
3. A relationship doesn't make or break me
4. Centering dating is not the way it has to be - With all of the apps, it can be easy to get caught up in the swiping, in the half-ass conversations, and messaging people day after day, to get no response at all or to get a response that is creepy or weird as hell. Letting go of all that can be incredibly freeing.
So here are 4 ways that my mind as shifted on dating. Head over to the lifeintheoutland Instagram, and let me know what you think, and tell me how dating has or has not shifted for you.
