Let's Dive Right In

I knew what love was from the age of 16. Well maybe thats not completely accurate, I'd seen love all around me from a very young age; my parents were married, my grandparents were married, and I had shining examples of what love should look like. But I didn't experience love for myself until the age of 16, and boy, what a kick-start that was to the world of love and relationships.

Now you might be thinking that 16 is too young to know what love is, and maybe you'd be right. At the time, I didn't realise what I felt until it was too late. But looking back now, I know that how I felt was real, and honest, and awful and terrifying all at once. But that's a post for a different day. 

So here I am now, a 23 year old woman, going through another round in the boxing ring of love, trying to stay positive and learn self-love and keep my head above the water that is this whirlpool of dating. I'm writing this in my pyjamas, at 7pm on a Tuesday evening, after another day in the office, and I've just finished reading a post on The Problem With Dating blog which really hit home for me and inspired me to start writing. 

So voila! Here's my take on love and relationships and heartbreak and moving on. I can't promise my posts will always be beautifully worded, and they may not always be happy-go-lucky and filled with positivity; but they'll be real and they'll be honest.
