Modern Online Dating Etiquette

Debatably Dateable

Times have definitely changed when it comes to dating and it’s time these dating rules get an update. No more waiting three days to call nor footing every bill to the male. We’re strong, independent women who no longer need a man…still we want him.

In a previous post, I briefly mentioned this guy who would talk about his other dates on our dates. That’s rule number 1, when using dating apps we all know you’re in different stages of talking and dating multiple people. You’re doing it, I’m doing it, he’s doing it, the trick is to not be the jerk who talks about it. You don’t impress me by telling me about the obsessive girl texting you during our date and I definitely don’t care about the girl you saw last night when I was busy. Instead, I’ll think you’re more interested in those girls or…

You Are NOT Lonely

Discovering Your Happiness

Hello loves,  ❤

I don’t know how love happens, and I don’t know how or why people find it, but I know that not having it doesn’t have to make you feel so empty. I know that being alone shouldn’t make you feel like you need to search for love even harder. It shouldn’t make you feel like you’re just not trying hard enough, or that maybe you’re just not good enough, not good enough to find love and not good enough to keep it.

Love doesn’t have to always be prioritized. It doesn’t have to be worried about and keep you up all through the night wondering if you’ll ever find it, or if you’ll be alone forever.

Sometimes the amount of pressure we put on ourselves to find love is unbearable, and love doesn’t have to be something that feels so pressured. Love doesn’t have to be the…

I Deserve Love

Discovering Your Happiness

Hello my loves, ❤

You deserve someone who will love you unconditionally. Someone who won’t waver on their decision to stay with you when you are swamped with depression or anxiety. Someone who won’t instinctively run away when things get hard. Someone who won’t abandon you when you need them the most.

You deserve someone who will treat you the way you SHOULD be treated. Someone who will actually meet your standards. Someone who will give you the respect and the honesty that you have earned from the start.

You deserve someone who will not only say that they have strong feelings for you, but will take action to prove those words. Someone who will put in effort to plan dates and share secrets and occasionally be romantic. Someone who will do whatever possible to keep your relationship strong.

You deserve someone who will make you feel loved every damn…

The weather is getting cooler, leaves are falling, and it’s officially “cuffing season”. For those unfamiliar with “cuffing season” it’s the time of year that the single people of the world like to find someone to enjoy these cozy nights at home with.

“During the Fall and Winter months people who would normally rather be single find themselves along with the rest of the world desiring to be “cuffed” or tied down by a serious relationship. The cold weather and prolonged indoor activity causes singles to become lonely and desperate to be cuffed,”according to Urban Dictionary.

Getting Back in the Saddle

For those of you thinking about getting back into the dating scene 😉

Debatably Dateable

It’s difficult to change your mindset or routine because it requires conscious effort and work. It’s easy to just continue life on auto pilot, never leaving your comfort zone. But that’s a pretty limited area and there’s not enough room to grow. I haven’t been on a date in 6 months. After yet another potential relationship crashing before even getting off the ground, I was somewhat hopeless about my future.

I tended to my wounds in private and back to the comfort of my own company. It was safe here, no hope to shatter nor vulnerability to fear. Eventually dating finally held my interest again for longer than a few weeks. I found myself talking to a very nice boy, one with old fashion manners and quite the infatuation with me. His compliments and sweet nature warmed me up to a coffee date.

It was horrible. I mean he was…
