How to be Single and Not Feel Alone

(This video was recorded from a Facebook Live session)

Fall in love when you’re ready, not when you are lonely
— unknown

I’ve been single and dating now for about 2 years since my divorce. I’m going to be honest and say that I did not expect to have this relationship status at the age of 32.

I was on track with being a military wife, home owner, two adorable pugs and making plans to have our first child.

But the Universe intervened by firing me from my nursing job and telling me that my husband was no longer a good fit in my life leaving me with the overwhelming fear of not being in a relationship for the first time in 7 years which was terrifying.

Now granted I didn’t take my single status seriously and jumped into 2 more relationships after the divorce. I wasn’t ready to go cold turkey quite yet and that’s ok. Those 2 relationships helped to comfort me while I picked up the pieces of my broken heart.

And that’s ok to have a “rebound relationship” if that’s what we need…

But here we are, at 32 years and for the first time I’m really embracing being in a relationship with myself. It’s so fun taking myself out on dates and getting to know my own needs better.

I constantly have people who are trying to set me up on blind dates and convince me that it’s time to get serious about finding a man especially if I want to have a baby soon. But I trust that the right man will come at the right time and until that happens, I’m going to enjoy every single damn day of dating myself right now without feeling alone.
