But let’s not forget that there’s always that fear in the pit of our stomach before a first date. With when it comes to the many free dating apps and websites available it’s rare that you have previously met your date. Sometimes you agree to go on a date with someone only to discover they’re older than they said, chain smoker and don’t know any manners and you want to run screaming for the hills.
There was a point in my life where I literally lived in black skinny jeans and band tops, luckily I went on a quest of Finding My Personal Style and now I typically follow the trends but add my own flare. Now I personally adore lace and crochet dresses, I think they look absolutely stunning and elegant.
With only a week until Valentine’s day, you can hear the stress of men and women everywhere trying to come up with the perfect present and date idea. Is a posh dinner overdone? Can we really just stay in and relax? Why do I have to get him/her flowers? In all honesty, you don’t have to do anything if you don’t want to.
I’ve been alive for 21 Valentines days. How many have I celebrated? None…until this year. You can bet your sweet ass I’m excited about it, and while I don’t believe in the hype around giving presents (after all I’d rather give Sam a present when I wanted to, opposed to when a calendar told me to). I am, however, looking forward to making plans together, having a little pamper and just spending time with Sam.
Sure casual sex isn’t for everyone and nobody should try and force you into casual sex, I was very much against it until I tried it. Now I’m in a relationship again though I’m not sure I’d go back to having casual sex, for me, it’s better with someone I love than the cutie from the bar that, while he may be cute…thinks the clitoris is a Pokemon.
Relationships can be a tricky minefield to explore, especially when you’re not really experienced with adult relationships and instead your more accustom with the pecks behind the lunch hall or lusting after a celebrity that doesn’t even know you exist.
We didn’t wait around to go on the first date, and by the end of this date, I knew I wanted a relationship with him. When you know, you just know and there’s no point hanging around. It’s now three months later and we are still very much happy together (even if we do have to travel slightly to see each other, but it just makes that time together a little sweeter).
I’ve been single for over 6 months now, after my first serious relationship came to an end and I experienced my first heartbreak.
