The best part of having dating misadventures is the lessons learned and the wisdom that comes from them (see what I did there?). So as the year is nearing it’s final end, I think it is important to air out any dating grievances you have. That way you can clean slate your dating record and start out on a positive note.
It’s been a good year of single life and boo’d up life, some make ups and break ups. Currently in a holding pattern with my beau so I don’t have many grievances, thankfully, but I do have a few:
1. Why is it SO hard for people to be loyal? I know it’s human nature to be self serving jerks, but would it kill us to actually be reliable and loyal? Especially to the people that have been loyal to you. I won’t hold grudges but my memory is long.
2. Sometimes people talk themselves out of relationships, romance, or sex. Know when to shut up and learn to recognize body language and facial expressions. If you are mid-conversation and realize that someone is looking at you as if you have 3 heads, find out why. If you offended them, turned them off, apologize.
3. Focus! There are many single people that are focus challenged. They can’t focus on a particular person to pursue and date. Or worse, they can’t put their phone down and focus on the date. Major turn off. Who or what is so important that you have to ignore someone sitting across from you? FOCUS.
I feel better already! What do you want to vent about? What dating misadventures did you have this year that made you wiser?
