Day 1

16 Jun

Here’s the story of my little blog here. My name is B and I have just graduated from a four-year college with a BA in psychology. For those of you who don’t know, this means I am pretty much SOL when it comes to work until I get a masters or doctorate (in what field, I’m not sure). Thus I’ve been applying for the same kinds of jobs I would have before my college career except now I have a little piece of paper saying I’m over qualified. Oh joy of joys! I’m living with my family still because of this lack of cash flow. It’s not terrible but certainly not a step in the right direction of growing up and standing on my own two feet (something only one of my three adult siblings has accomplished thus far).

The real topic of this blog, however, is not my adventures in job hunting or getting out on my own. Having just had my birthday last week I’m starting to feel like a huge aspect of my life has been grossly undeveloped. I am now 23 years old and have still never been in a serious relationship. I’ve never had a boyfriend, not even the holding hands kind in the 5th grade. I haven’t even had my first kiss yet. How can this be? Well, first of all, it’s not so terribly uncommon as one may think. Try googling it (as I have in a pathetic attempt to crash my own pity party) and you will find a couple million were people are all asking the same question: is this weird? I don’t think so but I’m also taking this as a sign that I want to be more proactive in getting myself out there, in meeting new people, making new friends, and maybe finding the right guy for a meaningful relationship (my own Mr. R). This blog is my place for the next year to share my struggles, ideas, and progress as a single girl proactively looking for love and hopefully to receive some from my readers as well.

Good luck my fellow singles,

    Great adventure, and it is awesome that you are giving yourself a year! It is much easier to get a kiss than you think. Now, it might not be the one that you want… If you don’t believe me, go out with the sign “Free Kisses.” I am sure you will find some takers 😉
    Thanks for the first comment btw 🙂 much appreciated!

      haha thanks. I am hoping that the kiss will be one I want 🙂 We will have to wait and see. I’ll make a sign just in case 😉
