"F**k people, Do Yoga." Unsolicitied Dating advice from Afrolion.
I am no dating professional nor am I a serial dater, I do believe in love and I do believe in dating.. if that's something to believe in...
I'm sure what I'm about to say you will :
a.) Relate to
& c.) feel like you're not a mad person constantly questioning whether your motives are to do with; the full moon, new moon or any other cosmic reasonings you can come up with.
That said, let me enlighten you with my dating profile;
I am a single female under 30, which, apparently, means I'm in my 'prime' dating phase..... Ahahahaha!!
Pfffft! If prime means ogling any bit of eye candy I don't even know on instagram then we are onto something!
Dating, as it seems, has turned into another thing we do to entertain ourselves from the daily routine of life; disposable, readily available & faceless.
Not my idea of fun.
Also, there are far far too many rules on this! Don't text back straight away, let them talk, let them approach, if after 3 days.... blahhhhhhhh blahhhhhhhhh.
I am a direct person, so these rules I do not care for or even consider! Straight up, almost rude, honesty is what I prefer...That said, the brutal response of "I'm busy" after I had let my feelings be known still didn't make me feel any better about the object of my affections honesty. *sigh*
Instead of focussing on the 'lack of' I thought I should focus on something to benefit me. With this thought * Yoga * came to mind (maybe I was feeling tense).
I grabbed my iPad from the counter & rapidly typed 'yoga for beginners' into the search bar... sooooo many videos filled the screen! Where to begin!? I clicked on a few, skipped to the middle & listened to their voice to see if I liked the sound of it.
After a few unsuccessful and nasal-y vids I finally landed on a good one.
'Yoga with Adriene' read the title.
Her voice was easy to listen to, essential in my opinion; he took it super slow and easily broke down the moves.
After 20 minutes I was in my zen & texting the guy ..haha I'm kidding, I was in my zen though.
I would highly recommend 10 mins of Yoga each morning to set you up and clear out your thoughts, even if it is for those few moments.
Plus, you'll get a fyahhhhh body & flexibility! Very necessary for when that Demi God comes strolling your way.
