Coffee Chat: “Let’s keep things Casual”

Hey, babes!

I’m sorry this is going up later than expected but I had a busy weekend that got kinda crazy(what can I say I’m in my 20’s). Anyways I’m back with a post about modern dating(dramatic gasp). Whether you’re in a relationship or no- I think everyone can take something out of what I’m about to share with y’all!(hopefully)

Lets get into it🙈🤗

I’m a junior in college, I write for 2(now 3) magazines, have a part time job, and a full load of classes. I hang out with friends on the weekend, plan events for one of my clubs, and try to get the best grades I can. With all of this on my plate it can be hard to find time to go on dates. Sure, I can get coffee with someone from time to time- but I’m usually too busy to hover in the same place for more than a moment! Anyways, I’ve thought about the relationships I’ve had, and most of them have ended pretty quickly. We went on a couple dates, had some fun, and poof we both got *busy*. That’s the magic word. Some of my friends are in long term committed relationships and I’m totally happy for them- but I don’t think it’s the best thing for me now. I want to focus on myself, career, and most importantly my relationship with God. What does all this mean? Why am I telling you about my dating life?

Well… I want to stigma of *casual dating* to stop. It’s okay if you spend your time with different people, and go on dates with them. You shouldn’t feel tied down to one person if you don’t want to be. I’ve meet people I could see myself dating for awhile- but the timing just wasn’t right or maybe other things weren’t lining in- and that’s perfectly fine. I don’t believe you NEED to be in a relationship. They are supposed to add joy to your life- not extra stress. I used to worry so much about dating- and trying to make time for it in my schedule because my friends were quickly hopping into relationships. I’m here to tell you to embrace time to yourself. Meet people, grow, try new foods, sing karaoke at the top of your lungs with your best friends. Live your life! It took me awhile to realize this but once I sat down and starting writing, I had to share it with you all.

So like that taylor swift song says: “I go on too many dates” but instead of the next line, I’m adding this: “and that’s totally okay”

This was a more personal post than I usually share with you all but I want my blog to be a place where people can take away things that may help them. I hope you enjoyed reading this and if my story helped/encouraged you, I’d love to hear from you! As always you can dm me on my social media handles(I respond fastest to my instagram but personal emails may be a better option for privacy reasons. I love you guys so much and stay tuned for a new poll on my Twitter tomorrow for Thursday’s Style Inspo.

Xoxo
