I had a serious live-in boyfriend for several years in my early twenties, and so, while my single friends were out meeting men in bars and partying, I was picking out paint chips in Home Depot and installing new light fixtures in the house.
I didn’t have time to even worry about meeting men – I was too busy doing things that got tossed by the wayside while I was in that relationship.I’m a sucker for guys who are willing to carry things, so I said yes and we dated for a couple of months.There were no real sparks with the guy, but it was a nice introduction back into the world of dating.I wasn’t going to wait around to get blind sighted by my gift of singleness.I grabbed it from the shelf and wrote my name on it.I don't use dating apps much anymore; I'm in a different place in life right now.
