50 First Dates | August and September Editions

April: 7 first dates, 2 second dates

May: 3 first dates, 1 second date

June: 5 first dates, 0 second dates

July: 2 first dates, 1 second date

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.

My journey through divorce and an emotional and sexual reawakening. Love, laughter, friendships, family and heartbreak included. And there is sex, lots of it, so close your eyes and turn the page if that's not for you! While I started this blog as an endeavor to journal my thoughts and feelings in an attempt to better understand myself, it has become an amazing platform from which I have met some of the most interesting and wonderful people in my life. My path is often crooked, but I hope you will share in the journey with me.

    1. Good question I am now able to answer.

      I couldn’t. I loaded them. Looked and realized how much my heart is not in it.

      I thought, mistakenly, that I should protect myself like I did with Bobby and keep my options open. I was able to do that for a while with Bobby, until I fell in love. Then I couldn’t.

      So I’m sure i do love him because the thought of being with anyone else for any reason.

      But that question was dead on my smarty pants girlfriend.
