Dating Detox- Day 1

I am a dating addict.

Recently I’ve decided to take a break from the ever-exhausting activity of dating. I have had very little luck in the past few years and I’m tired. I’ve been told several times that I would have to kiss a lot of frogs in order to find my prince. I feel like I’ve made out with a whole river and I’m now treading in ocean waters.

Frankly, I’m tired of the game and I feel like every man in this city is playing it as competitively as they would their rec hockey league. This leads me to my latest challenge. After a recent birthday, and some severe self-evaluations, I’ve decided a dating detox is in order.

This means no men for while. I’ve deleted all past dates/ relationships from my Facebook, Twitter, and most importantly my phone. Basically I plan to focus on me and me only for a while.

The energy one spends on seeking out the perfect guy is ridiculous. I’ve gone on a total of 36 dates and really none seemed to impress me the way I want to be impressed. Some I had fun with, but at the end of the day, I want butterflies in my stomach- not wondering when the douchebag is going to call.

I figure there are some rules to this whole detox deal. I won’t give out my number when I’m out. I won’t make those mistake texts most of girls do when having a few drinks. I will simply play it cool and not give a shit. Day 1- and to tell you the truth, its nice not caring.

In the long run, this will be the best thing for me. I can go back to dating myself. Today I went for a run with myself followed by treating myself to a few new outfits. It’s already feeling good. I think I speak for most girls in saying that sometimes when we are searching for something; we tend to forget about other important things- like ourselves.

If I happen to meet someone organically, it will have to be spectacular. No settling. Stay tuned to more Dating Detox 101. Should be an interesting ride….or shall I say lack there of…

  1. Believe it or not, this exact situation may happen to a guy, from A to Z, the whole river of tuna fish, the relapsing reluctant kiss and else… backed with a few drinks, the nightmare mornings, the good resolution not to do that again, the everlasting hope that something will change… Stuck in the matrix for too long, looking for butterflies too, and crossing only willies 🙂
