Okay, I lied, the name is deceiving because break ups are always hard. I remember my first ever real break up in 10th grade, I was a complete and total disaster. I skipped school the next day and my best friend’s mom took me window shopping at the mall, I was prone to bursting into devastated tears randomly throughout the day for a solid week (in case you haven’t noticed I’m a little emotionally unstable). Now that I’m a little older I am more familiar with heart break, and recognize the phases I tend to go through following a break up (isn’t self awareness fun?). Probably the
worst best phase I go through involves retail therapy. After a break up I am the most vain person since Snow White’s wicked Step Mother and I am SO obsessed with my self image. On top of my ridiculous vanity I just feel sorry for myself, making it easy to justify bad behavior like skipping class, eating ice cream for every meal and of course…shopping sprees.
Something I have started thinking about is dating, not that I’m looking to date but what does dating look like for a “blogger”. I’ve become extremely apprehensive about sharing any social media information with my many suitors (Haha…). I haven’t been single since I’ve started this blog and it’s weird to think about how much of my heart and soul is out there on the internet for anyone to see. A stranger on the other side of the country, I’m cool with you knowing the depths of my soul…but a guy who wants to take me on a date…doesn’t it just seem a little unfair?
I hate the idea of someone who wants to date me getting to know me through my blog, rather than face to face. I want to share everything on this blog (and more) but I want to do it on my time, an extensive period of time…not all at once. I think throwing this blog at a potential boyfriend would be a bit overwhelming no?
Does anyone have any experience/advice when it comes to social media and dating? I’m pretty sure I’m going to be the crazy person who won’t accept a facebook friend request until after date
3 15. Does anyone have any tips to make break ups easier? McGraw Hill seems to have a better tactic than me…so I’d take their advice rather than mine. As my Mother likes to say “Do as I say, not as I do“, I think that is solid advice.
