I have been single forever.
That’s an exaggeration. I’ve been single for nearly 5 years, but sometimes it feels like eternity.
It’s not like I’m unhappy. My life is pretty good. I’ve got a good job, an amazing bunch of friends, great family. I understand that a relationship isn’t the be all and end all.
I’ve had my heart broken 3 times in the life (twice by the same person, but that’s a story for another day). I have been on countless bad-yet-hilarious dates. I’ve ghosted and been ghosted. I’ve sent some pretty humiliating drunk texts and fallen victim to the dreaded booty call more times than I care to remember.
The thing is, even after all this, I’ve realised that there are three things I want from a man:
- Someone that will eat pizza in bed with me
- Someone that thinks I’m hot, even in the morning
- Someone that texts me back
(That last one is harder to find that you’d think)
I don’t think is an unacceptable list of requirements. That being said, how hard is it to find someone that can tick all three boxes?!?
So here I am. 27 years old and finally ready to share my dating experiences. Brace yourselves. Shit’s about to get real.
