During work yesterday when I made small talk with some residents asking about their weekend, 3 of them told me they were going on a date with their boyfriends. One girl said it was their 3rd date, the other one said it was her and her boyfriends dating anniversary of 2 years, and the other girl said that her boyfriend was taking her out on a surprise date. Wowsers! That’s a lot of talking about dates! I was surprised, but then again it was a Saturday night, isn’t that what people in relationships do?! I sort of forgot. I haven’t had a boyfriend to go out on dates with in yearssss. We’re talking 5 years this January. Whoa! That’s a long time for a girl who is all about love, relationships, etc. When it happens I will be on Cloud 9!
So I’m going to be honest and say that those conversations got me in the feels. I imagined what it felt like to go on a fun date with someone that also liked me back. My dates lately have been a bunch of “figuring out” if we are a match. I’m also not talking to anyone right now so I don’t have someone to drop love bombs on. I love the idea of having a boyfriend to spoil whether that’s with unlimited head massages, cute surprises in the mail, or just making him feel special. Gahhh, I’m a hopeless romantic.
So since there is no boy in my life right now, I decided to take MYSELF OUT! My original plans were to go home and be a bum haha…but instead, I got dolled up (well, I put effort into my makeup and hair lol), and decided to explore a new city: Tustin!
My night started with this overpriced, gigantic, greasy and freakin’ scrumptious piece of pizza! My taste buds were in heaven because I ate super healthy alll week long.
Then I headed over to The District in Tustin; an outdoor retail and restaurant marketplace. It’s only about 10-15 minutes from my house but I took the long route to blare some jams in my car. With the window down of course!
I love the Union Market section! It’s so rad! See for yourself:
My original plans were to grab some coffee and read, but I had too much energy and didn’t want to sit still. So I ended up walking around outside 🙂 I tried making a little vlog and completely sucked at it! I didn’t show anything I wanted to and kept cutting off my face 😂
Of course I ran into a “Date night Paint and Sip”. Look at their freaking connecting moons. 🙄😫 C’mon!!!! Ugh. LOL! So ironic right? I took this photo and walked away laughing. I’ve actually always wanted to go on a date there!! So I thought it was pretty cool that they designate nights to couples. One day, you guys, one day! Lol
Got some makeup! This huge bag makes me look like a baller but there are 2 little things in there, ha!
All in all, I had a nice little date with myself. My first date of 2018, and I’m going to make sure they continue to be great by getting back on track with my standards. I know that all I can do is be patient until I find someone, or he finds me, but sometimes it’s hard. Especially when love is in the air! 💕 I must add, there are many perks about being single and when I pause and truly think about being in a relationship this very moment, I know deep down that I am just not ready. Is anyone ever ready though? I wouldn’t dare miss out on someone great because of that, but I also don’t want to look for it either. So whenever I’m getting in the feels about being single I’ll just doll up, eat some good food and explore! Lol
I drove home with so much peace knowing that I do not need a guy in my life to make me happy or satisfied. I don’t need a distraction or two in my phone for attention or just to simply get me through the day. I feel like most people do this day and age and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t one of them in the past. Now when I talk to someone it’s because I really like them. End of story. In my opinion, it takes a strong person to do life alone. It’s nice having a special someone to share moments with BUT it’ll only make us more pleasant for our future person because we won’t need to take and take, we will be so full and ready to GIVE. 😊
Onward and upward,
