DATING AND RELATIONSHIPS
Do you have info to share with HuffPost reporters? Here’s how.
Our relationship was innocent and pure. I think often that he will be 24 forever. As time passes and I grow older, I can live life for better or worse. I don't have to live a certain way anymore by numbing my pain. I can let go and move on. I'll do it for Dexter, but most importantly, I'll do it for me.
It's that time of the year! The leaves are changing colors, the sun is setting earlier and we're trading our icy Coolattas for warm pumpkin spice lattes: cuffing season has officially arrived. Cooler weather and reluctance to leave the house, suddenly has men and women gravitating to one another, looking for someone to keep them warm throughout the winter.
It's Saturday night and you're out with your girlfriends. You spot a incredibly attractive man across the room. Instead of approaching him you secretly dream about him asking for your number as you talk about him to your friends. The night is soon over and you leave with Mr. Dreamy only in your dreams.
Your letter is not about your ex being a d*ck. If he were a d*ck, you would have stopped thinking about him by now. But you are thinking about him. Almost a year later, and you're reaching out to me, too. You said you shouldn't be thinking about him though. Has someone told you that? Often our friends do.
During my 30s while going through my own romantic drama and heartache, a friend once said to me, "When somebody shows you who they are, believe them." Her words have always stuck with me and I totally understood the truth in her advice, but didn't necessarily apply it to my life when it came to romantic interests.
I don't often write about good dates. Let's be honest, the crappy ones are far more entertaining to read about than the ones that go well. Also, the sad state of reality is that there are for more bad ones than there are good. But every now and again, a date surprises me, coming out of nowhere to restore my faith that there are people out there whom I just might get along with.
