Honestly, I haven’t really dated since… 1999? I met my now ex-husband in high school, in October of 1997. We never really dated, we just kinda decided we were a couple and then a few months later (February 14th 2000) we went to the court house and got married. And didn’t tell anyone. We were absolute idiots.
But before he and I were a we, I dated a few boys, but nothing really long-term. The only guy I really ever “dated” was a boy I met when I was 15, who told me he was 17. He was over 21, but didn’t look it, and was here on an expired student visa. It was a mess.
So, honestly, I have no idea what I’m doing. That’s a big part of the reason I’d prefer to have someone else make the moves. Ask me out. Don’t just say we should hang out, make a plan. Make it romantic. Show me that you’re making effort.
I’m tired of casual. I want something real.
