She knew he was single and she was determined to meet him.
She had brought her friend Kim along, but hadn’t mentioned her purpose.
It is important to take some time to learn the lessons your last relationship was meant to teach and apply those lessons moving forward.Other times, I’m like NOPE, not trying, if I meet him I’ll meet him, if I don’t, then well, I’ll just continue living and enjoying my life. Dating is exhausting, yet if you aren’t meeting people somehow and putting yourself out there, then how do you find ‘the one’?Amidst this internal debate of what to do, it’s really hard not to notice the people having success and moving forward in this aspect of life.For those that truly are actively looking now, I think it’s really easy to compare what you are doing to others, especially when you don’t have what you are trying to get. I have assumed that because I’m not in a relationship that I am lacking in some way, or that I am falling behind in what I should be doing.As it says in “Girl Code”, someone else moving forward in one aspect of life does not mean that you are doing anything wrong; it does not mean that you are failing. Remind yourself that what may look perfect to us may be riddled with conflict. Some people go on ONE Internet date and end up marrying the guy (yes, I’ve seen this happen more than once). Apparently more and more people are getting married later and later in life.Now is the time where the majority of people my age are still single, and probably looking for ‘the one’. I go through periods where I feel like I need to put myself out there and DATE, because without any effort I’m not going to meet someone right?MORE March 23, 2018 Debbie was sitting alone on a park bench one hot summer day crying her eyes out, because she’d had a double dose of dismay in one day.She had lost her job and found out she was pregnant on the same day.It’s even harder not to compare your life to theirs and wonder what is going on. No person or relationship is perfect, so if you are seeing perfection, it’s likely falsified in some way.It doesn’t help that there’s social media and the hashtag #couplegoals running rampant (insert eye roll emoji). Anything on social media is just what people WANT you to see. The same goes for the relationships you see in person, with your friends and their boyfriends or husbands.
