I am trying to change my outlook on life because if you haven’t been reading, it’s kind of a train wreck. (Read “And So It Ends” to get caught up) I have decided to take a dating break. Surprise, Surprise right? I am going to focus on me. This doesn’t mean that things are going to get boring around here though. After my breakup, I gave booty call a call again. Yes I know, I’m weak. It was great sex as usual but I don’t think it’s going to be a thing. I am literally over all guys past and present. I have decided to spend the holidays watching and adding every corny Christmas movie ever made to my Netflix queue.
( Watch “How Sarah Got Her Wings” when you get a chance)
I have tried to re-download Tinder but it literally gives me anxiety. So I have deleted it. I don’t have Bumble anymore either. I am literally not on any dating sites and am finally just waiting to meet someone in real life. I know… weird right?
I have of course have been creeping Picky Eater because I am not completely over it. I have noticed that a new girl started following him on Instagram and he followed her back. So naturally I assume he is seeing someone else. I also check his time stamps on WhatsApp like every 5 hours. I have been getting better as the WhatsApp checking has slowed down to once a week.
Today I deleted all his pics from my phone and his phone number is just a number no name. These are my lame steps to getting over a break up. Don’t follow them though, do what normal girls do and just go cold turkey. I find that it’s super hard for me to let go of things so I need to work on that.
I am also trying really hard not to go all Doctor Foster on Picky Eater. (If you haven’t seen Doctor Foster on Netflix you are tripping. It’s basically the new gone girl). See how much Netflix I watch? A quite unhealthy amount.
Golden Rule: Slowly but surely delete the Dumpee from your life and all will be well.
Tips for Guys: Watch Doctor Foster and see what happens when women get angry. JK… but not really.
Hello Ladies! I’m sorry I left you for a bit again. I was once again trying out a relationship which was empty and void as most are. This time I was skeptical thanks to my previous bout with “almost love”. I was suspicious the entire time. Within two weeks of talking to this guy he asked me to be his GF. No idea why that fast but I wasn’t really in a position to say no (as I desperately wanted to be someone’s GF). I was eager to jump into something else because my ex told me he found his soulmate and had to leave me. I was adamant at showing him that I could find my soul mate too. Evidently I can’t as I am the author of a singles blog lol.
So it was a whirl wind, we dated for about a month. (This is my new record lol) In the beginning it was all texts all the time. He was there for me through a bit of a tough time in my life. (let’s just say 2017 hasn’t been a cake walk.) I knew deep down this guy wasn’t the one, but I thought “there is no reason he couldn’t be Mr. Right Now”. I desperately wanted to give this guy a chance. After about 2 weeks the text messaging got really light. Maybe like 1 a day. (much like the ladies vitamin which I seriously recommend. Especially the gummies but I digress.) So this guy or shall we call him “Hunting Cap” was in school and also worked very odd hours which I was very much aware of when I entered the relationship. However he assured me more than once that he would make time to see me and hang out with me. When the texts started getting light I tried to break it off, as I felt myself having anxiety constantly waiting for a text from my so called “Boyfriend”. When I tried to break it off, he literally begged me not to. He said he could make this work and that he didn’t want to just give up. So he got a second chance.
I don’t want to drag this on but this story ends with him ignoring me on a day when I planned to celebrate his upcoming birthday. I bought cheesecake for him (I strongly dislike cheesecake), I got his favorite beer and was fully ready to order takeout. Invited him over to my house to have a special pre-birthday hang out, I thought I was being nice. Apparently this sounded like a day in a hell dimension to “Hunting Cap”. He didn’t text me for like a full maybe 24-36 hours. While I text him like 100 times asking where he was?….what he was doing?…was he still coming? I was met with radio silence. I finally indicated through text that we were over and that I couldn’t carry on in a relationship like this. The following day he simply explained that he left his phone at his friend’s house. HIS FRIEND’S HOUSE! Sorry for yelling but is that not just the lamest excuse in the book. Then he stated that he didn’t have time for me and that I should go find myself someone who had time for me (slap in the face much?). That was the end of that. So 2/2 relationships tried ended in disaster. I am currently on a dating hiatus…. I call it Man free March. My idea of man free though does not discount my occasional tryst which just keeps all my needs met if you know what I am saying (wink, wink.) Don’t worry I am not keeping secrets, there will be an impending blog post coming up with the details.
So why do we call him hunting cap you ask? That’s what he got me for my birthday. A hunting cap… A HUNTING CAP! There has been a lot of yelling in this post and I do apologize. I repetitively told him that I would never go hunting with him as that was his thing. But what does he get his ultra girly girlfriend for her birthday. A hunting cap. Not a bath bomb from Lush, which should be every guy’s go to…. But a hunting cap. Okay rant over. Picture of hunting cap below, please let me know if anyone would like to take it off my hands.
Golden Rule: Try not to date a guy who has too much on his plate, as it makes for a lot of anxiety on your end.
Tips For Guys: Never buy a girl a hunting cap for any occasion, not even if she is actually going hunting with you. If Kate Spade starts a line of hunting caps this tip may be altered.
