Dating. It’s not as easy as it looks (I mean in comparison to what I see on the many Romcom’s I watch).
It’s okay though, I’m learning from my mistakes.
I’m not stupid, I have said it before and I’ll say it again…everyone isn’t for everyone. That doesn’t mean I’m not slightly bitter about this one though. He was just so lovely. The kind of guy my dad would of really liked. I thought we got on really well… I thought things would eventually lead somewhere. No one is to blame here though. Sometimes, things just don’t work out (Romcom’s lie).
When things don’t work out I tend to keep saying that I should just be on my own. But who am I trying to kid? I’m a sucker for romance. Will I let another set back stop me getting to know more people? Of course not. I’m taking these set backs a little more lightly these days anyway. Like I said, everyone isn’t for everyone. I am still optimistic there is someone out there for me though.
I was starting to regret certain things. Things like wearing my Little Mermaid pyjamas in front of him (I mean, there for special occasions). Things like letting him see the colour of my bedroom walls (I don’t show that sort of thing to just anyone). Things like letting him see me hungover (death looks better than I did). More importantly things like introducing him to my sister’s (the most important people in my life). I can’t regret them though, because at the time it felt right and besides in life we only regret the chances we didn’t take.
So here’s a couple of things I’ve learnt so far –
People can change their minds. About anything.
It seeming to be naive to get my hopes up.
People can be just as adorable as they look.
Resilience is key.
Don’t rush things.
People can be honest.
Honesty needs to be respected.
Knock backs aren’t the end of the world.
And if at first you don’t succeed…
I have faith and more importantly still have my sanity.
