My New Year’s Eve Disappointment

I had such high expectations for my New Year’s Eve in 2016.  My friends and I went to a big masquerade party complete with food, a live band, dancing, and all of your typical party horns and party props.  It was a formal party that we got to dress up for. I was so excited! My first single New Year’s eve! The possibilities were endless.  I had the typical New Years fantasy that every single girl has at one time or another.  Go to this party, meet a special someone, and at the stroke of midnight, have a new year’s kiss that rocked my world! Anyone else? Just me who had this fantasy?Jan

We get to the party and start to eat and dance.  To my extreme disappointment, I’m pretty sure there were only 4 single people there that night at the party.  Me and my two friends and this other guy we met, who for the life of me, I cannot remember his name.  Everyone there was coupled up, not to mention it seemed to be an older crowd.  Adding on to that extreme disappointment, the only kiss I had at midnight, was the kiss goodbye to my fantasy that completely did not happen.  The night winds down, party is ending and we are leaving.  On the way out we met a girl who was waiting on her boyfriend to come out of the bathroom.  When he came out, they annoyingly started kissing and being all in love and what not. I say annoyingly because I was hatin’, mad hard, and for the first time the realization of being single set in.

All the Single Ladies!!!

So if you read my last blog post you know the why. Why I started this blog. But now let me cover the what. What is this blog going to be about? What can be expected?

I am a firm believer in the expression “There is a reason for my season.”  I am 26 years old and have been single for a year and a half. Before that, I was in long term, back to back relationships. I began my single journey in the summer of 2016. And let me tell you, that was an experience I will never forget and that I plan to share soon. I am a completely different person than the girl I was 2 years ago. I know who I am, I love myself, but most importantly have a relationship with God. Don’t get me wrong, just like with anything else in life, being single isn’t always what it is cracked up to be. It took me awhile to get to the place that I currently am in my single season of life. I am going to be real with you and tell you that sometimes it is frustrating, discouraging, and not fun waiting for the man God has for me. It is natural to want to get married, start a family, and start that journey of life.

Are you with me still? Have I lost you yet? In a nutshell I will be sharing my testimony which includes past relationship experiences and my dating stories. That’s right, the good, the bad, and the funny. 2017 was the year I started casually dating and let me tell you, that has been another experience in itself that I will also talk about and share soon. It’s hard out there in those streets dating as a Christian woman trying to find a Godly man. Can I get an Amen?
PSA: This is not a Taylor Swift, ex boyfriend bashing outlet. This is me sharing my experiences and my journey. I will not be sharing names, telling other people’s life stories, or using this to point out anyone else’s flaws except my own. Because let’s be real, I and anyone for that matter, have no place to judge anyone. I also cannot speak on behalf of anyone and have no right to tell anyone’s stories except my own. I will respect everyone’s privacy and even my own to a certain extent.

 But just as life isn’t only about boys and relationships, I will be sharing other things as well on here. I have many other hobbies, interests, and stories to share.

Everything from baking to beauty tips. Occasionally, I may slip a random home decor DIY or infamous Snapchat story that I love to make on here. So, if you are interested and would like to join me on this journey then get ready for some corny jokes, stories that will make you laugh, maybe shed a tear, but stories that are 100% real and honest.
