Here’s to being single.

I’ve been single for around about 10 months now. Sure, single life is treating me well but sometimes I get lonely.

Let’s face it; who doesn’t want that special someone to talk to on the phone or cuddle up and watch a cheesy film with? I won’t lie, I do want that but then I sit down and think – I have plenty of time to find my special someone. Or do I?

I’m going to be 20 this year, and I feel like I’m getting old. 20 is probably still young to some of you but compared to most of the bloggers I’m friends with, I’m freaking ancient. I read blogs where some of you are still in school and here I am going onto my third year of university. It’s hard to believe that I began blogging at the age of 15/16 – that was like 4/5 years ago.

My taste in guys have changed over time. I prefer the geeky guys. The guys who I can sit and have proper conversations with about things like Doctor Who, Firefly or Star Trek. The guys who wear cult reference t-shirts. The guys who will happily go along with my fangirling about whatever it is I’m obsessed with at that moment. But will the geeky guys want me?

I don’t know. I identify myself as a geek but I’m kind of different in that I can still be very ghetto. I love rap music, speaking like the London girl I am and getting involved with black people drama on Twitter*. Will I find a guy who likes me for who I am? A short, ghetto, loud girl who loves Doctor Who.

SEE ALSO:  Yes, there is more. I'm not even sorry.

I sometimes I feel I scare guys off. Or they see a side of me that doesn’t necessarily fit with them and so they ignore all the other parts of me.

Asdfghjkl, I don’t know. I want to find that special someone, so badly sometimes. I kind of miss having that connection with someone. Someone who you can trust. Someone who you can tell all your secrets to. Sigh.

I’m trying to get back into blogging regularly because I realise that I do miss it, a lot. I remember when I used to blog like every two days whereas now I only blog when something ‘exciting’ happens in my life. Right now? Nothing exciting is happening and I want to blog more about my thoughts rather than what’s happening in my day-to-day life. I have a lot of thoughts and I kind of forget that I can just rant about them on my blog because let’s face it… it isΒ myΒ blog.

*black people drama on Twitter is basically this section on Twitter which people call ‘Black Twitter’ where it’s just black people complaining about weave, girls, sex, image, etc. Sometimes it’s funny. Sometimes it’s plain annoying.

    ” I prefer the geeky guys. The guys who I can sit and have proper conversations with about things like Doctor Who…”
    Now, don’t you worry Chynna!! I’m sure any geeky guy on the planet would fall for you. You’re awesome. Haha xD. And I’m the same. If I simply hear the words “I love doctor who, let’s talk about it.” come out of guy’s mouth, I’m over there. Heeee.
    Unfortunately that rarely happens. And more often than not, I’m then turned off by any boyish bravado they seem to put on. πŸ™ So I’m on your side for this. Geeky boys rule! πŸ˜€

    You’re not old! I’m just a baby! xD
    Plus, I have the mental age of an 86 year old, so I’d call you very young! πŸ™‚ 20’s nothing, so you just do what you want to do. I know I’m not really one to say, but you know, I like to try and sound all wise and oracle-like. Hahaha xD.

    And thank you for the nice comment about my photography. I try my best :/. hehe. And 5 donuts a day is a job in itself, you should try it! But no… I need a job too. πŸ˜›

    Bleh. It is awesome to be able to shop and buy things that I like but it sucks when I realised that my wallet has burnt a big hole due to excessive shopping. >.<

    Well, single life can be good too. At least you are not restricted.

    Yeah, she is. I don’t blame her though, my whole family is pretty blunt.

    I learned a lot in school too, but I still think it’d be best if the parents got a word in with the kids.
    My Mum actually did the same thing to me with the pads. πŸ˜› At least I learned how to put them on with a sex ed tutorial in 5th grade!

    Oh gosh, I can’t imagine me giving the sex talk to my future child. I think it’d be embarrassing for the both of us. I don’t even know how I’d start; I just know what the point I’m trying to get across is.

    Being single isn’t the worst! I’m currently taken, but sometimes, I do think it’s easier to be single (not that I regret dating my boyfriend). I feel like single people have so much more “freedom.”

    20 is definitely not ancient! You’re the same age as my boyfriend. πŸ˜› I’m just a late-in-the-year baby haha. I graduated high school this June, but I don’t turn 18 until October. πŸ™ Barely legal!

    I don’t prefer geeky guys, but then I do. It’s kind of a mix for me. I think I like “half geeky” guys, if that makes sense lol. I like guys who are basically what you described as yourself (not perving on you, lol!). My boyfriend is half geeky, but at the same time loves rap, like me!
    I think with a boyfriend or girlfriend, some things should be similar, but most things shouldn’t so you guys can have a taste of something different.

    Maybe you don’t scare them off. Maybe they’re scared of scaring you off. They might be shyer than most.

    You know, ranting on your blog could be a good thing! It gets your feelings/stress out & you can share it with people who might have the same “problem.”

    LOL at black people drama. πŸ˜› Is it a tag?
