I’ve decided my pen name will be Autumn, because I love the name and its my favourite season of the year. The reason why I’ve decided not to use my real name is because what I’m going to be writing about will be brutually honest reflections of things that happen to me e.g. people I meet, dates I go on etc…
You may be thinking… “so what?” “and??”
Well I’m quite paranoid and I’d prefer not to be hunted down and murdered by someone I’ve written about! As unrealistic and unlikely to happen as that might sound… I may just be the exception to the rule. (Unfortunately this is how my mind works lol)
Now why have I decided to start a blog?
Confession time. I attempted to start a blog a while back, and being the procrastinator that I am, I chose the worst possible time to do so. I was in the midst of studying for my finals and although I’ve always wanted to start a blog, I used it as a way of avoiding text books and revision notes. I wrote a few posts about what it was like to be single and how my unsuccessful dating life was going.
Guess what guys?? It’s a year later and NOTHING HAS CHANGED!!!!
I’m 26 and I’ve never been in a grown up relationship. My dating life can be described as “a series of unfortunate events…” No potential love interests have been located as yet, and when I say love interests I don’t mean it in a crazy- “I cant wait to fall in love with you after our first date,” but just someone worth dating, who actually wants to date me (that’s an important criteria).
If I’m being honest I’ve never really put myself out there, except signing up to a few mobile dating apps…. I HATE YOU TINDER!! 😥 However, I’m ready now more than ever to go all in and I’ve decided to write about it!
So as you may have figured this is not an advice blog. This is not place where you’ll learn the mysteries of men and how to lock one down, if I knew that my blog would be called Autumn’s Inner Thoughts: what it’s like to be deliriously in love (ahh one day… lol). However, I hope you enjoy reading about my experiences and hope in the very least you might learn what not to do.
As someone once said- “Learn from the mistakes of others, you can’t make them all yourself.”
Love, Autumn x
