So.... I'm all moved in. Not quite settled yet, but getting there. I sold my home (to excellent friends, actually), and moved into an apartment. Perfect for my single-gal lifestyle.
I basically took the month of April off from dating. Between packing, hosting a large family party, and starting a new job - there was no time. I learned (or maybe I was reminded of) something interesting:
I'm happier when I'm single.
That's not to say I don't like dating (sometimes), or that I'm resigning myself to official crazy cat lady status just yet. I just noticed that I was happier when I didn't have to juggle annoying emails from guys I don't want, and silence from those I do.
It was actually a huge relief, and while I know I will return to dating eventually, I have to say - it is nice knowing I don't need to date to be happy.
