I saw one of the last country concerts of the summer this past weekend and I think it’s safe to say fall is right around the corner. This season of apple cider and pumpkin everything tends to bring up all kinds of feelings for people, especially when it comes to the heart. The cooler weather and trendy activities (hellooo apple picking) can definitely make the idea of being in a couple more appealing. Single vibes will be fading as quickly as the summer weather.
In the midst of all the changes it is important to hold onto the confidence that makes you who you are. It may be easy to question yourself when you feel like your crush isn’t exactly into you, but you must not spend too much time wondering “why”. This question will only drive you crazy and cause you to lose sight of yourself and that’s just no good. Figuring out who you want to be with, or if you even want to be with anyone, is supposed to be fun. Going on dates and getting to know new people is part of finding what makes you happy. Traditional dates are less common these days due to our technologically driven generation, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to wait for one.
The whole dating cycle can be both frustrating and confusing at times. This is exactly why you need to find happiness within yourself before you let someone else in. What do you desire? What dreams are you currently striving towards? Is he/she really worth it?
You should be too busy creating your own vibrant life to care what your crush thinks of it. If someone is supposed to fit into your life, you will know soon enough based on their effort and interest in you. You may not need a cuddle buddy for these upcoming seasons, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be nice to enjoy another person’s company. It is never a bad thing to follow your heart if you continue to love and respect yourself while doing so.
Find yourself, embrace all of your qualities, be happy, and let things unfold. Also, definitely go apple picking.
