Hope you’re all doing amazing!
In today’s post I want to talk about the subject of dating, more specifically, my experience with dating.
Dating is a big thing when you’re a teen, or at least for me it was. Throughout secondary school dating was basically unseen for me, I did have a few interests but nothing ever got past the friend zone, I personally always thought it was because of my appearance and I’m so wrong for ever having thought this.
I thought dating was a big part in the teen years of secondary school because everyone was doing it except for me. Honestly looking back now it shouldn’t mean so much to me, things have ending up working out well.
Prom was also another big thing on my mind back then because after seeing so many American movies, sex on prom night is so big because I didn’t have a boyfriend so I knew this wouldn’t happen, though it’s stupid thinking you have to do it on that night because movies show it, when really you should only do it when you feel ready.
All though college I wasn’t interested in dating but if it occurred to happen then I wouldn’t mind. It wasn’t actually until college that I had my first date and kiss, though it wasn’t someone I met at college but from secondary school.
Here I just wanna say that although everyone is doing it, you should feel like you should be doing it too. Your time will come, just like it did for me.
I met my boyfriend just after I finished college when I felt I was actually ready to pursue a relationship. This honestly worked out for the best, for it being I didn’t have to worry about college and the silly amounts of gossip and pressure that goes around.
I only have to go to work and the rest of my time is spent with him, and not along side the excessive amounts of course work.
So to conclude, don’t feel pressured into thinking you need to have a boyfriend/girlfriend and go on dates because your friends and people around you are doing it,
you are your own person,
