We all wish to come across THE right one, as soon as possible, but it’s not always that easy. With our busy schedules and hectic lifestyles, most of us don’t have the time for love. And if you are that part of the population who finds it hard to socialise in parties, events, etc., you have even harder time. But, no worries, as there are certain angels right here on earth, that help you find your correct match.
Hi, I am here to provide a conversational piece on dating. I want you to think of this as a moment of honesty and a time to self-assess how things are going in this category of your life. This is a judgement free zone with an honest perspective based on my own personal experiences. In summary, I'm just going to give it to you straight.
So, for some reason, I have always found myself in the middle. Quite honestly, once you’re in the middle it feels like there’s no going back. You really can’t find a way to escape from what essentially, you put yourself into. Life sucks that way sometimes. For instance, when you were younger and your friends used to be in a bit of a tiff, and it always ended up with you having to choose a side. Like dude, why would you do that to me? Rude. In my case, I tend to stay neutral. Basically, what I’m trying to say is I completely abort the situation. I run the other direction. No shame. This tactic I have acquired has helped me more times than I wish to admit, but hey at least I got out. When I say “got out,” I mean I let the scenario dissipate in a way. It’s a blessing. So this may all sound a bit confusing. What is she talking about, you might ask. I simply mean the good ole “love triangle.” In my case it has ended up being a love rhombus, hexagon, maybe even an octagon. All of the geometric shapes. And now, the good stuff begins.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Agnes and I'm a 27-year-old woman that can count on her hand how many relationships I have had. Pretty sad, right? I haven't had that much luck on relationships and I haven't had much luck on guys either. This story isn't for some pity party, but this is something I need to write to tell someone what I've learned from it. What I learned about me and what I should be looking for in a relationship and also a partner. Let me just say, this will have a lot of cuss words in it.
It goes without saying that dating as a gay man can be tricky at best. Even the coolest, most confident guy occasionally has trouble reading signals or mustering up the gumption to approach someone that really makes him weak in the knees. If you’re actually super shy and introverted, all of those things become even harder.
Casually dating is like a form of art, tricky and detailed but pleasing to the eye. Every stroke and every stride is delicate and precise. I've talked about casually dating before, but I have never expressed what topics you should discuss while on a casual date, and the topics you should avoid altogether. Like anything else in life, there is a set of guidelines people should follow, so here it is...
The word 'soulmate' has so much pressure attached to it. Think about the weight of that title. Soul Mate. Someone who is, essentially, the person you believe to be eternally bonded to your own soul… quite a hefty responsibility.
