Happy New Year everyone! I hope that everyone stayed safe and enjoyed the festivities.
I had my date on Friday & I thought it went well, but there are already a few red flags that have gone up. This guy is about 4 years older than me (which I'm ok with) but I think since he is nearly 27, he is overly ready to settle down. Within the first date, he asked about marriage, brought up his income, and mentioned multiple times that I would fit in well with his family. I'm really trying to remain open minded, but I think that was a bit too much & overwhelming for a first date. On top of that, he kept asking me if I "honestly thought things would work out between us"... HOLD ON, WHAT!?!? I don't know, maybe I've been out of the game too long or maybe my red flag alerts are correct....
Aside from that, I rang in the New Year taking new adventures. I wasn't able to go hunting, but we did go frogging until 4 am! We didn't catch anything, but I had so much fun walking through the water. We saw gators, owls, deer, skunks, beavers & rabbits! Talk about new experience!! It was the most fun I've had in a long time and I think I'm addicted to having fun now :)
This year, I'd like to really stick to my standards in regards to everything, but especially friends & dating. There are just certain things I don't like & I don't have to compromise my happiness just because I am afraid of being perceived as "mean". I know I'm not mean and I think anyone who knows me well knows that isn't true.
So, there's my update... having fun! Oh yes, "Voldemort" (recently known as my ex haha) contacted two of my friends (they are sisters). She then called the girl who I have been traveling to see once a week (the one who works for my therapist). It only bothered me because even before our break up, she rarely spoke to them & she knows how close I am with both of the girls and their family. I don't like the way she treated them when I was dating her and I definitely don't like her now. I know though, that it is not my decision or control should they respond to her... it's just still annoying. She needs to keep her messy life and drug habits away from me and my friends. Please and thank you :]
Hope to hear from ya'll!
