    I feel like I’ve always been someone who was single, in a relationship, or dating around, taking a break, and going through the cycle all over again. I feel like the more I dated people who were not suited for me at all, the more picky I got and the more I realized what I actually wanted. I had not seriously dated anyone for about 1 year before J, and we had only dated for 3-4 months. Then before that it was another 6-7 months before my last serious relationship. In between that time, it was nice to focus on me. Even if it was lonely at times, the anxiety I felt from talking to new people that made me felt insecure, it made it not worth it. Now I’m happily in a relationship, but it’s taken my 27 years of life to find this person I can actually envision being with for a long time. Great post !

      I feel like we have really similar stories. I was single throughout Covid – I was initially going on lots of dates but I couldn’t seem to find what I was after. I’ve also been through the cycle before of dating, single, dating, single and it got to the point where I just thought it was impossible for me to find anyone. I’ve now been with my partner for around 18 months and it’s the first time I have been someone who I can actually picture my future with.

      It can be nerve-wracking going out on first dates and never knowing whether you’ll connect with the person you’re going to meet. xx
