Maybe Love Isn't For Everyone

Maybe it's out there and maybe it's real. But maybe just not for me.

I don't think I can be loved. It sounds like the beginning of some sappy rom-com where the girl finds out in the end that she is indeed capable of love and that there are many people out there who love her. I'm not sure that's the case for me in all honesty. I am not sure that such things are applicable.

This is all deep stuff, perhaps stuff that belongs within the walls of a therapy room or with a professional, but I have always had a justification for my oversharing in that possibly there is someone out there who is feeling the same and we can comfort or better understand one another.

I think I've been problematic for a long time and liked to argue for a long time. I think that there is something in me that wants to tell people they're wrong. I fight more with men I think, but with the girls I've dated I have experienced similar things. I think something in me wants to teach and correct and make things that aren't a big deal a much bigger deal than they're supposed to be.

I like to scold and wear the pants in the relationships most times. Because of this, I often wonder if love is really for me. Maybe it really and truly isn't. Maybe I am not the kind of woman who gets fairy tales. Now maybe I'll get a CEO position or become the President, but true love is something that often misses people like me.

Cutting people off really isn't easy for me even though I try to make it seem like it is. It's something I've done quite a few times and unfortunately, I've been cut right off too before and I know how much that can hurt. I just think that people like me often times are picky even when we don't always have the place to be like that. Love is a whole lot of compromising and the number one thing I've always hoped women wouldn't do in their life is compromise and settle for something less than when there might be a perfect person out there for them.

Maybe I am forever waiting for a perfect person who just doesn't exist. Maybe my dream is just that. A dream. It's not reality, even though the movies and books I write, read, and watch tell me differently. I want to believe in a true love and maybe it's real. Maybe it's out there. But maybe just not for me.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
