I’m finding it hard to actually go out on a date. It could be the fact that I’m more confident that I’ve ever been and I know I don’t have to settle. It could be because I hold every guy up to the standard of Jesus. Whatever the reason, I haven’t actually been on a real date in years. I haven’t had a boyfriend in years. I had to work on myself so I would be good for whoever entered my life. Now I’m in a good place and the prospects are few. Also, I refuse to bring ‘just anybody’ around my son. His well-being is my top priority, even over my own needs. Dating seemed so much easier in my 20s..my mom wouldn’t let me date in my teens. I pray when the time is right I will be aware and not let a great one pass me by.
