Intro to Self-Dating

I know I have abandoned my readers, I wanna apologize & say that ya girl been going thru some stuff okay. Ya’ll have no idea what I went thru in this last decade. Whew. BUT…I made it to 2020! Glory to God. Okay. So….I’m sure you’re all wondering where I been, why I stopped blogging?! Etc. Like I said….this past decade was roughhhh. Lemme jump right into it and say that I will be starting something new this year in 2020.

After all that I been through in the last years, I am going to fully commit to myself and go on solo dates all 2020. Yea. You read that right sis. I, AshMarie will be single, single. Which means, I will not be actively dating anybody, I will not be on any sites, OR social media. Just me, myself, and I.

What does self-dating look like you ask? Exactly what it sounds like. Taking myself out on dates. Whether it’s to dinner (I’ve never been ashamed to eat alone at restaurants, I actually enjoy it!) to the movies, museum, etc. Whatever I would do with a mate, I’ll be doing it solo.

I know, you probably thinking have I lost my shit. Nope. I may went thru some stuff, but I am very much sane lol. I decided to do this for myself, by myself, to myself. It is long overdue that I get to learn me, love me, and give back to me. Give what exactly? Give love, give time, give healing, and most importantly: give self-love.

Now I’m gonna try to be very transparent with ya’ll as I have done in the past. But this is a little different though. I’m gonna be sharing my experience and journey of self-love and self-dating. I’m sure there will be some hiccups along the way, but that’s life. And to be honest, I’ve never been more excited to do something like this before in my life.

So, here’s the beginning to my solo dating journey. This will definitely be interesting and exciting to see where this goes as I finally start to put myself first. I wish all of you a successful 2020 and again I’m sorry for being MIA. Let the dating commence!

    This is great! I wish I had read this when I was single. I really struggled with dating myself and just being happy with who I am. It’s amazing how many women struggle with this. Sometimes it feels like we only matter if some guy wants us. Self-love is so important. You are so right

    Yes, I love it! There is nothing like self-love. If you don’t know how to love yourself, then you won’t know how someone else is suppose to love you. Praying for you during this journey 🙏🏾😘
