I left Nashville almost 2 months ago. Since arriving in Florida most of my time has been spent with my family (parents, siblings, nieces, etc). Family was the driving force for the move south so being with them a lot is going according to that plan. But all this time spent with them doesn’t leave much time for outsiders (dates!). In fact, a few weeks before leaving the volunteer state was my most recent date, so that makes it 74 days, 16 hours, 34 minutes, and 29 seconds since I’ve been out with a woman. Not that I’m keeping track. 🙂
Do I miss going out on dates? Some days, yes. But to be totally honest, dating during the holidays is hard, anyway. Not to mention I don’t like being outside in the cold. So winters in Nashville consisted mostly of me and my dogs huddled next to a space heater watching football or YouTube.
I would imagine it will be another month or two before I even think about asking anyone on a date, for two reasons: 1. Holidays and cold, 2. Is there a woman out there ready for my weirdness? (that’s a rhetorical question and also, not a rhetorical question).
Till then, I will be content becoming more involved in my family’s lives, which was the main purpose of moving south. And it’s been pretty great so far!
