No, this isn’t me belting out some undying news about my current love life.
Yes, this is a blog about people asking me for love/dating advice.
All of my good friends and family know this about me. So why is it suddenly 2 people in my life are suddenly turning to ME for dating advice? And sadly enough, its actually WORKING for them?
I think its because I'm finally in a relationship lasting longer than 6 weeks (almost doubled!) WITH a guy I probably moved too quickly with (thanks for sticking it out) and these 2 people are thinking “if it worked for her of all people, she must know SOMETHING that can make it work for me). Because these 2 people have some of the same dating patterns I do. And I'm not mentioning names for a reason.
Ill wrap this up so it doesn’t turn out to be like a drawn out journal entry. Bottom line is this…I guess when the right one comes along, there is no need to go back to your old patterns. Ive found someone who doesn’t make me neurotic, doesn’t give me the chance to even think about over analyzing. He has his issues (and oh boy so do I) but we don’t try and fix what the other doesn’t want help fixing in themselves already. I don’t want to push him away, I have no desire to criticize anything he says or does (yet) and I actually like his toes (eventhough he has monster size 15 feet with hair on his toes you could comb over – sorry babe if you actually read these things).
So my words of advice to my mom and sister (oops, did I just out you?) Just relax and have a good time. Don’t think too much, and just be you. Because there is a crazy guy out there that will like you and your weird quirks. Its like the saying "always show the you in you that makes you the you that you are."
And to the lucky guy I get to wake up to most mornings…I promise I'm not as crazy as I made myself sound here. Im lucky to have found you, and you are the best thing that has happened to me.
And to my BFF who I KNOW is going to rip this to shreds – go easy on me.
