Backstory: I first began processing the idea of dating myself as I was going through a major, major breakup last year. I was in hell because I knew in my deepest deep that I was just going to have to be me. Without much of a choice, and in a last ditch effort to pull myself up from the pile of potato chip bags and Ray Lamontagne CD’s, I took myself on a date.

Instead of thinking of cute things to do for someone else. Dating yourself is a really good way to get yourself centred and get back to putting your own needs first.

I’m going to have a movie night for one and I’m going to bloody love my own company.

I didn’t know what I wanted when I started online dating.

Being a nice girl, I sought a stable guy to settle down with.

It was a tumultuous, terrible, wonderful, bright, miserable, enlightening, and invigorating relationship- all at once. Something about not being able to stand me or something. I didn’t know where to turn for the highs and lows I’d become so accustomed to over the years.

I didn’t know who to run to or how to distract myself from reality. But I really wanted to be on my own and meet different kinds of people for awhile.I unnecessarily confused a few serious guys who wanted exclusive relationships, One fellow wrote me that after he lost his wife, he wanted a friend with benefits only. Another gentleman said he wants a girlfriend, but still wants to live separately. It helps to have a goal before shopping in the human mall of online dating.I rushed into dating far too quickly after my husband George died.I tried dating a couple of guys only a few months after his death. ” Haven’t we all heard this from well-intentioned people who are uncomfortable because we’re alone.(This, of course, was back before I had a blog, before Instagram even existed.) Now, even just a few years later, it seems so much harder to disconnect, to get away to do something like this.
