Backstage Pass: Summer flings or fall romances
Summertime is the perfect time for cocktails by the pool and a steamy fling with that hot guy you just met on the beach. But is it all its cracked up to be?
Wine and dine with a bae vs. the awkward morning after? I'm thinking a bae wins (most of the time).
But at some point, like everything, the one night stand gets old. You move on. You want to be someone's world again and wake up knowing that you're on one person's mind.
This isn't to say that a relationship is always the right thing to do. I recently got out of a relationship. For the most part, it was good. I enjoyed our time together. But we had this reoccurring issue of time management. Women can multitask, men cannot. A sad truth but true nonetheless. When my ex got busy with other things his attention for me was gone faster than a good hair day in 95% humidity.
Like, I get it. You're busy. But so am I. So why can't we be busy together? Ladies, no matter how busy he is he should always be making at least some sort of effort for you. And if he doesn't, he's not the one.
With my senior year of college right around the corner, I decided it was time to focus on myself for a change. This is my last year of school. I need an internship, a job, good grades. I don't need to be using my efforts to try to keep a relationship alive. If I'm in a committed relationship senior year, its going to be with my academics. You feel?
Sometimes you have to do what's right for you. That can mean being single so that you can prepare your life for things to come or being in a committed relationship because you are more confident that way.
Whatever you do, do it for you. Make sure you are taking care of yourself first. After all, we live life as ourselves, not someone else, right?
Babes, keep walking independently, or not so independently, down the runway. Catch you Backstage
