Lent is upon us once again and we are surrounded by talk of what people are giving up.
I've given up chocolate successfully for lent numerous times and having already banned caffeine and alcohol, chocolate and sugar are two of my only remaining luxuries! Especially with the task of finishing and marking controlled assessment looming. So this year I have decided to take a different approach. I am going to give up dating.
This means deleting my beloved dating apps, and finding other ways to amuse myself on the still long, dark and cold winter evenings. It also means no giving out my number or seeking male company!
Being surrounded by couples, I've begun to think that i need to be in one too. Perhaps for reasons of boredom more than anything else! But the next 40 days will give me a chance to focus on me! I can look at what I want, do things which I enjoy and save myself from a string of short and up satisfying almost relationships!
