Are you going on your first date? The chances of you being nervous would be relatively higher. You might have loads of questions on your mind including what to wear, what to talk about, and whether you would kiss. You would like to have date number two as well. In such a scenario, consider following these 10 dating rules to make a lasting impression.
While this might not be for everyone, for others it could be the perfect combination of casual sex and no commitments. People looking for ‘action’ that works around their work schedule or lifestyle, or they’re new to the game and just looking to experience a new intimacy. And I’m all for trying new things.
There are many reasons why a person would delve into this side of ‘lust’ and love, some of which we will touch on later on in this article, but they aren’t that far off from what we consider ok or normal.
I’m not saying I’m an expert at long-distance relationships, but I was in a few relationships where I had to be apart from my (now ex) boyfriend. It’s like, I knew that long-distance relationships would be hard, but damn I fell for the guys who live a thousand miles over and over again.
In my last relationship, we had to do long-distance since my ex is doing his PhD in the Netherlands. A few years before then, I was also in a relationship with someone who lived in Istanbul when I was based in Jeddah.
I know too well it’s challenging, it’s just that… When you know, you know the right person for you. It doesn’t really matter if you end up to be with them forever or they’re just there for lessons.
I’ve got a confession to make today: I’m back to the single world again. I recently broke up, it was around last week when we decided to part our ways for our own good. No drama whatsoever, I guess at this point it was our decision as two adults who just happened to be together for a few months. At some point, we realized that maybe it wasn’t a good idea that way. So we liberated each other through a breakup.
Pretty much like many other breakups, it wasn’t pretty either. There was some disappointment along the way, the thought of so many what ifs. But I think one of the good things about dating in our 30s is that we know when we need to take separate ways, it’s only for the betterment of one and the other.
I didn’t even cry when we eventually decided to end our relationship. As I said, this is probably the best for us. But hey, still it doesn’t stop me from listening to some breakup songs to pour my emotion.
Because of this, I decided to make a playlist of some breakup songs that might be useful for you. Especially for those of you who probably need to listen to some of them. Not to make the condition even worse, just to ensure yourself that everything is going to be alright.
It is, even though it sucks right now.
It’s been a few months since my 30th birthday. Recently, I got a message from Shi Hui asking me for details on my dating life since she found out that I’m dating a Singaporean guy. And at the time, she suggested me to start writing on a post about what makes dating in my early 30s different than my 20s.
I figure it’s actually a brilliant idea. There are so many things to talk about when it comes to the differences, either from within or the external situation. So, now that I’m honestly running out of the ideas what to write next now that I’ve finished my Borneo trip post… Here comes the post about dating in our 20s vs 30s!
So, what are the similarities? And what things that make one different than the other?!
