The Dating Curse -Part Two

Months ago I wrote about my dating curse with having relationships end as soon as I deleted my dating apps. I combatted this curse while dating my boyfriend by just deleting the apps after our second date. This way, I couldn’t blame the apps if things didn’t work out.

Second Choice

I’ve talked before about ways to know if you’re wasting your time on a guy or not. These guys, for a variety of reasons, are emotionally unavailable.

Time With You (A Pantoum)

I’m just asking for a little more time just a few more days with you in my mind It’s hard to let you go here I go again acting like you were ever mine. just a few more days with you in my mind I lie to myself, something I learned from you here I go again acting like you…
