Single And Happy

1130935_heart_rules_-_no_loveMy girlfriend and I broke up a few weeks ago. I'm not really upset, though. It was one of those things where we kind of grew apart over time and both realized it and it just got to the point where it was like hey... I don't think this is working anymore. She was actually the one who brought it up, but I was about to bring it up myself, anyway. I'm not going to get into the reasons or anything here, but like I said, it was really just that we grew apart and didn't really want the same things anymore. There are plusses and minuses about the breakup, though. I'll list some of them here.

First the bad things. My ex loved to cook, and not only do I not really love to cook, but I don't really know how to make anything other than peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. So I think I'm going to be eating a lot simpler stuff now. She could make this meatloaf that was amazing. I should ask her for the recipe! The other bad thing is that I'm so used to having someone next to me in bed, which I won't have anymore. But that can also be a good thing, because now I can stretch out as much as I want and not have to worry about hitting anyone.

Another good thing is I'll now have an opportunity to grow as a person, and I can now do whatever I want. I'm actually planning on moving to a new city, and I'm also going to get a new car. It's kind of a thing of reestablishing who I am. I need to find the cheapest auto insurance I can find, too, because now that I'm single I need to save money. We were living together and splitting the rent, and that's also part of the reason I'm moving. I don't want to pay for this big place by myself. So I'm going to be moving to a place that's a bit cheaper and smaller, and I'm also going to have to pay for the new car I want to get.

As far as dating goes, I think I'm just going to focus on myself for a while. My friend Carlos invited me to hang out this weekend to help get my mind off of things. I'm not one of those people who jumps from one relationship into the next right away. I guess if I meet someone cool then that's one thing, but for now I'm just going to work on me.
