Why I Am Not Ready To Date (Just Yet)

Dating? I don’t think so. So recently I ended an article with how I hope to be the one in a relationship for once and my friends went crazy.

Don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with being in a relationship and neither is it wrong to be single but when you say you want to start dating but still act like you want to stay single then there is a problem.

Apparently this is what I am suffering from. According to my friends I don’t want a relationship I fought this notion for a while only to realize how right they are.

I don’t like meeting new people I will never give a stranger my phone number and I don’t even go out. I don’t mean clubbing I never go out ever not even for lunch.

I would rather sit at home and continue watching scandal or The Flash because Lord knows Barry Allen is my rock. Anyway, so my friend let’s call her Grace asks, ‘how will you meet someone if you are always holed up writing or reading?’ it’s a valid question and I truly had no answer.

So as I sat there thinking of a way to answer her, then it hit me, I don’t really want a relationship. I mean, I don’t want to have to answer to someone all the time or have to make time to meet them. Time I could spend watching Barry save people in central city.

There are perks to being in a relationship, one being I won’t be lying every time someone asks me if I am seeing someone and I say yes. No wonder I can’t meet anyone I act like I’m be fair, I am all for loving yourself (not the Bieber kind) because I believe you can’t love others if you don’t love yourself.

So I continue turning people down hoping one day one shall remain resilient and maybe just maybe stop my selfishness. For now, I will spend my free time watching (read adoring) Grant Gustin AKA The Flash.
