To my future man;

To the future man in my life.
Thank you for being patient.
Thank you for picking up the pieces of another man.
Thank you for showing me that I deserve to be loved.
Thank you for believing in me.
Thank you for teaching me to separate my identity from my experiences.
There is not enough credit for people like you...
The people that have such an incredible heart to be patient with my demons.
The people that are understanding. Patient. Kind. Respectful.
I can't wait to meet you.

What's the difference between a head job and a steak...

To the guy that used the pick up line "what's the difference between a head job and a steak"

Firstly, I thought I heard you say "what's the difference between a hedgehog and a snake"

 But don't confuse my total look of confusion with lust....please.

To then say you'll take me out for dinner so I can see with a creepy `wink wink' only made me vomit a little in my mouth.

You obviously didn't say hedgehog

Or snake

I'll never look at poor hedgehogs again.

Besides from ruining the innocence of hedgehogs for me, this would of been my reply if I wasn't in complete shock and hyperventilating about what the actual fuck just happened....

For one, thank you so much for thinking about my steak needs. Didn't know I looked so anaemic, I have been taking iron supplements, but I now know to up my dosage. So I appreciate that.

I possibly would of taken you up on your meal offer if you weren't wearing a wedding ring though... I mean, I'm totally cool with a free feed, especially if I need more iron in my life... But we should probably invite your WIFE too.....

And for two, I don't know why you feel the entitlement to a hedgehog head job post steak sesh. Or in fact, the entitlement to think it's okay to ever use that line on a woman...

So I'm sorry, there will be no swapsies in a steak and BJ with a man wearing a wedding ring that I was chatting to in a pub.

I just feel like my life is heading in a different direction.....

Enjoy your snake 'wink wink'

Breaking up as an adult.

Just moments after I decided to declare to the world that I was in love.
The posts, the blog, the instagram.....
It all seemed premature.

Because sometimes even though all of your stars look like they match. It's an illusion. Maybe you want them to be so bad that you pretend that they do. Or maybe you want them to so bad, you turn a blind eye to the fact that in reality, the stars are a complete mismatched mess. Completely.
Those stars that looked so breathtakingly beautiful, are really, just big balls of hot gas.

I don't think it's anyone's fault. We can't blame each other for not being right for one another. But the bottom line is, we're not.
Part of dating as an adult is really assessing if this relationship is something you really want, beyond short-term. Unfortunately, I just couldn't see that.

Sometimes completely different views and perspectives just don't work together. And that's okay!

It's funny though, I haven't been in this dating game since I was 17. It's kind of strange. Like breaking hearts, tears, and feelings are still things... fancy that! But now we do things... like adults! Sit down and have a conversation and mutually decide to part ways, adults. Kids are involved, items are involved, we invested in each others lives, now we have to un-invest, as 'adulty' as possible.

So, here I am, again, finding myself single in my 20's.... and blogging about it!

Which I'm not ashamed to be, I do like my own company, and my life is completely hectic enough. I love the self time, the growth time, the perspective time.
God knows that I really need to get a hold on this hot mess I call life before I can share it with anyone else.

Now is the time I focus on me and my beautiful children.
And boy, do I love my life with them. Seriously, have you met these two amazing people?!
