The first same sex marriage can officially take place on the 9th of January which means the #HusbandHunt is officially on. One problem though Dating is Hard Y’all. You’ve read some of my hilarious dating fails, but here’s the thing.
I’ve Never had a boyfriend
I know right, its shocking. With a nasty sarcastic streak and trouble letting people in who would have thought it? Do I stink of desperation… probably. I do tend to jump in way too quickly and get emotionally vested before it’s warranted. I spent a very long time while I was in the closet convincing myself that I could never have a boyfriend and I had to get comfortable with that idea. Now that that’s changed and having a boyfriend is totally an option, I didn’t realise how important a romantic relationship is to me.
When people ask I joke and say ‘Oh no, I’m way too emotionally damaged for that’. But honestly if I could get away with it I’d have faked a pregnancy by now. The strong independent guy in me say’s don’t worry about it and concentrate on being happy in yourself. But there’s a part of me that starts to wonder. At what point does it start to get weird that I’ve never actually had someone who I would refer to as my boyfriend?
This isn’t a pity post, I don’t want comments with things like ‘keep your chin up’ or ‘you’ll find someone, don’t worry’. This post is just to reiterate that Dating is Hard. At this point I’m kind of like ‘are we doing this or not?’ Because I’d like to cut you quickly rather than get too invested.
Everyone’s walking around with emotional baggage and I think there’s something in my pheromones that attracts guys recently out of relationships. Last Friday I hooked up with a guy (no post about this one yet) who agreed to have coffee a couple of days later. It came out over coffee that he was 6 weeks out of a 5 year relationship. I ain’t your rebound buddy.
But because I’d like to be optimistic I’ve already started planning my wedding on Pinterest husband to be determined at a later date.
