Goodbye singledom: (aka goodbye abs, sleep and shit sex)

Goodbye singledom: (aka goodbye abs, sleep and shit sex)

Ok, so bit of a life update here - I am in an actual relationship after three long years of singledom. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ  I've never been one of those whiny single types, nor one of those girls who go around forever lusting after a relationship finding no enjoyment whatsoever in their own company - those suckers really get on my pip. 

I loved the single life and made the most of it, hitting the gym frequently, adventuring to new places, and doing what I wanted when I wanted to. My blogging schedule was on point, I was travelling, reading, sleeping enough and feeling generally in a good place, (apart from on the shelf that is!) Even Valentine's Day was an exciting occasion to by myself a yearly present for being downright fucking fabulous... But it can get a little lonely now and again so then the time came to start dating again.

Dating was both exhausting and disappointing 99% of the time because I genuinely entertained the notion that romance was dead. More often than not, modern day dating seemed to be nothing more than an app-fueled minefield of gluttonous playboys and egotistical nightmares - and yet I still used dating apps with the shred of hope that someone SOMEWHERE was not a complete and utter moron. 

And you know what? I found a gem! And it was worth the wait ๐Ÿ˜Œ It was so refreshing to go on a few really great dates - from drinks, to rock climbing, to meals out and day trips... all with a true gent who made me laugh like a loon. 

It's going really well - and I even spent last weekend up in Lincoln to meet his parents, which to me was a pretty big deal. *cue images of Jack Burns and the circle of trust*

 (Luckily there were no awkward moments or scary parents and we had a lovely weekend!) 

But along with the definite perks of a relationship come a few downers that I hadn't even cared to think about. For example, I'm struggling to find a good blogging routine that fits in with work, life and gym at the moment. Instead of being stuck on my phone I'm spending weekends out doing things - so apologies if posting has been a tad erratic recently.

 My three gym sessions a week have dropped to a pathetic one session which is making me freak out before my holiday because I want to be trim and toned. My HIIT sessions have been replaced with high tea and nice meals out instead ๐Ÿ˜ - they say being in a relationship makes you fatter but happier - which is food for thought I guess ๐Ÿ˜œ

My blissful sleep pattern has equally turned into tumultuous wrestling session as I try to clutch on to the covers while Alex wraps himself up like some sort of giant burrito ๐Ÿ˜‚ but I'll forgive him because I woke up to find him sleep-laughing the other day which was hilarious. 

For now I'm just caught up in the whirlwind and enjoying myself as the not-so single gal!  ๐ŸŒชโค๏ธ I'm excited to report on our travels in the near future.

Bisous, 

Georgia.

XOXO
