2017: THE YEAR I DATE MYSELF



So I'm just gonna put it out there- I have never been in a relationship. I know I’m just as shocked as you in. I personally feel like I would make one kick-ass girlfriend and I mean I’m everything a guy could be looking for.
Anyways, that is not the point of this post. It’s not that I want to be single, it’s just bad timing and circumstances, I guess. I’ve also never been on a date. Ever. Again the opportunity has just never presented itself and it’s not that I’m unhappy being single, it’s just I have found I tend to complain (quite a bit) about my impending doom of living the rest of my life alone...




This trip down memory lane of all my hatred of being single, has got me thinking about myself and about why it is I wanted a boyfriend so bad. The truth is I wanted someone to love, but more importantly I wanted someone to love me. Then I realised that I am not the same person who wrote those tweets and need the validation of someone else. Being single your entire life can play tricks on your mind, especially if you are plagued by self-hatred like me. I’ve never seen myself as good enough- I’m not pretty enough, not smart enough, too smart, not thin enough, nobody wants a girl with boy tits etc. But now I’ve come to see that that is complete and utter bullshit! It is one of my goals this year to thrive off self-love and stop hating my body and myself! I then related this back to the reasons I wanted a boyfriend- to love someone, to have someone love me and realised the one person I needed to be dating right now, is me. I need to love myself for a while, be selfish, appreciate myself, treat myself to days out but most importantly- take care of myself.


That is why I’ve decided that in 2017 I am going to date myself. Show myself all the love I’ve been wanting to show to someone else and the love I’ve been wanting to receive. It’s a pretty strange idea but I hope you all get the message I’m trying to say- it’s okay to love yourself. I feel a bit like that Justin Beiber song but the women who is like "Hell yeah Justin! Fuck you, I will go and love myself, got a problem with that?". It’s important to show yourself the love and kindness you’ve been looking for from someone else. So why not follow in the self-love train and take yourself on a date, show yourself a lil love, compliment yourself in the mirror and remind yourself just how fab you really are! It’s time to show ourselves the love we deserve!

Till next time,

  2. I love this attitude you're taking Robyn! So many people get hung up on being alone and neglect themselves, instead putting their efforts into finding someone else. I thoroughly hope you enjoy dating yourself (treat yo self) and although you'll be telling yourself, I thought I'd also tell you that you are fabulous xx
