Let me begin by saying I am no man expert (man-pert, if you will). In fact, I'm not very good with men (despite having my first boyfriend in Grade 4 - we held hands). I'm terrible at the "game." Usually, my past boyfriends have started out from friendships. BUT what I do know is mental … Continue reading Dating in 2018 and Having a Mental Illness: 8 Tips & Tricks to Avoid Getting Hurt
It's been 2 years and 8 months since the big break up and I find myself asking, do I hate my ex-fiancé? How do I now feel about him and what he did? It's a weird feeling I get when I think about this. I kind of awkwardly chuckle to myself. In my mature moments, … Continue reading
*I have many draft posts I never got around to publishing, this is quite old. April 2017. Still a funny read though. I don't know how I didn't see this coming. I can usually spot a sketchy guy from far away. I'm out of practice. I fell in love (8 years ago). The game's changed. … Continue reading How I got a Insta-boyfriend, Scammed and then Faded On Part 1
It’s been one year, four months and thirteen days since he broke it off and I’m still reeling. Not on the bedroom floor crying (anymore) – thank God – just obsessively thinking about him and his new girlfriend/lady in his life (I’m not sure what she really is and I’m too scared to ask). To … Continue reading A Jilted Bride Update
I wrote a post last week about my latest dating adventure and I mention that a certain situation (the man not making sure I had a means to get home) has happened to me before. This is that first situation. We went to a movie that ended at about 8pm. And decided to walk to his … Continue reading Spoiled, Dating and Depressed
Now this has happened twice to me in the last year. But even the second time I feel hella good doing it/not standing for it. And that is odd for me because sometimes I can get down on myself instead. I am just too old for this foolishness. After meeting a suitor on Tinder (which … Continue reading When a man doesn’t drive you home. A dealbreaker? Hell yes!
No matter what seems to happen, in the end I'm alright. Now it may not seem that way to me when I'm going through hard times but I have to keep reminding myself that in the end I'll survive. It's one thing that I always seem to lose sight of, despite the mounting evidence. And … Continue reading In the End
This has more to do with my breakup than my depression but I thought I'd throw it out there. Now I've only had two major breakups in my life and I can't help but notice how fast a man can change. To begin with, both men were naturally very kind and caring individuals so it … Continue reading How Fast a Man Can Change
Okay, I know there are whack Dads out there. Like wiggity whack. But my Dad isn't one of them. He's dedicated his life to his children and they've always come first. Newly single at 30, I've moved back home and he's still dedicated as ever. Now don't get it wrong, he can be imperfect at … Continue reading Is Your Father the Only Man You Can Trust?
I wish I had wrote this sooner. So much has happened between my original post and now. Everything feels like simply a memory, which it is, but you know what I mean! My first post was optimistic I think but things have definitely been up and down since then. I had to do a lot … Continue reading A Jilted Bride, 30 and Depressed
