Can you feel it? I don’t know if it’s because it’s the holidays and well, tis the season, or all of the Christmas love movies I’ve been watching, but I honestly feel like love is in the air.
I was talking to a friend of mine (who I consider an expert on dating) and she said, “You just gotta get out there!” And then proceeded to give me the ins and outs of all of the dating apps. She had two relationships from meeting people on them and I worked with a woman a month ago who met the man she is engaged to on one.
I explained I believe in meeting someone organically to which she replied, “Unless you plan on shopping at Whole Foods everyday, how is someone going to find you?” I laughed.
She was right though. No one is going to find me where I live now. Part of that is by design. When I moved, I moved with the intent to be away from all the drama and because I don’t like drama, unless it’s a role I am being paid for, I would never frequent any of the places where I once lived.
But meeting someone does require me to get out of my apartment for more than a ride to school. So, I went on all of the apps she told me about and even discovered a few more myself. Let the auditions commence!
I’ve got too much life to live and too much love to give, so being alone long term doesn’t work for me. There’s only so much inner work you can do. At some point you have to take what you have done internally and see what you attract externally.
It’s the end of the year. Time to purge all of the stuff that held you back and start anew. I’m ready. Are you?
Who knows! Maybe Hallmark will write a movie about my meet cute.
