One issue with dating in your 20’s is that there is probably a 50/50 chance that one or both of you is broke AF. I like to blame this mostly on student loans and the outrageous price of mixed drinks at bars. But you shouldn’t let this stop you from having frequent date nights! After you’ve been with someone for a while, date nights can come few and far between. So check out my post about the importance of making time for date night then head back over here for some cheap ideas!
After a breakup I prefer to wallow in my dark and stormy feelings. I think it can be invigorating and beneficial to give into your sad feelings for a bit. So I’ve spent plenty of time over the last few weeks listening to sad songs and reading somber quotes. But eventually I believe you need to crawl out of your dark cave and take time to laugh. So if you’re in the same situation and need a little chuckle, scroll on for a few quotes.
I felt this would be a fitting topic for me to write about considering I am currently going through a breakup. In fact, I took some time away from this blog to process through all of my emotions and figure out how to carry on (dramatic much?). All relationships are different and come with their fair share of problems, regardless, the heartbreak can be deafening. There are numerous ways to help yourself move on after a breakup and it is different for everyone. I wish chocolate and wine solved all problems, unfortunately we are not that lucky.
A unique, but I feel appropriate metaphor in some cases. I feel as if he is cheating on me and I’m aware of it and unable to stop it. Heroin is the mistress and I have to watch as my boyfriend walks out the door and goes to her every day. That bitch gets all his time, all his money and all his thoughts and she honestly doesn’t even make him happy. This is what addiction feels like to me being on this side of things.
Typically the longer you’ve been in a relationship the less likely you are to make time for date night. It happens to the best of us, so no need to fret. You get comfortable in a relationship and date nights turn into getting takeout and watching Netflix. This has certainly happened to me (no complaints here). But no matter how long you have been with someone it is always important to make time for an actual date night…like actually leaving your home and going out in public.
You really have to keep the humor alive while you’re out there dating. Because let’s face it, trying to find your
soulmate future ex-husband is draining. So, I have gathered a few quotes to give you a little chuckle after you’ve had another terrible first date. Grab a glass of wine (or chocolate milk if you’re sober) and scroll on down.
