17 dates to get me through those 4 months…. in hindsight, it’s not so bad.
And, I knew August was going to be the month that one of two things would happen: I was going to have no first dates because my limited time was going to mean I could only spend my free time with the men I already knew, or I was going to go crazy those last two weeks of August when I had my kid-free weeks.
So which was it?
No first dates in August….which led into September.
All because of Bennett, frankly. I just stopped bothering. I was happy, engaged and in love. Why bother with dating anyone else?
I will admit to putting both Tinder and Bumble back on this week. I’m getting ready to transition into a new routine next week and I will be back in the city. No reason I can’t fill some free nights with dating and ensure I protect my heart in some fashion.
