We amused / terrified myself recently by counting exactly exactly how numerous months We spent solitary in my own twenties. Nineteen months. Nineteen (19) months!! Over that whole ten years of my young life, which means that lower than 16% of the time had been invested, being a twenty-something, by myself. It ain’t a lot. To produce things more amusing / terrifying, six of the months had been invested backpacking and racking up stamps in my own passport (*insert sleazy wink*) to ensure really actually leaves simply over 12 months of real singledom.
In hindsight, my “relationship strategy” within my twenties ended up being simple: rest with somebody then never ever leave their part for 2 (or three) years. The closest my darling ex’s and I also ever arrived to “dating” had been getting drunk together within the pub, or making tacos that are homemade binge-watching Breaking Bad. We’d miss the dating component totally; move in together straight away, merge our everyday lives totally, get yourself a pet, speak about grown up items that neither celebration were ready for… and then split up. Repeat. Etc. Etc.
Of course that is not entirely reasonable and I’m being a small cheeky. I experienced some gorgeous and extremely significant relationships in my own twenties, you, right right here i’m: 30-years-old, solitary, and dating that is. (more…)
