Today I am starting a new segment on Gypsy Eyes, one that I would like to think I have extensive experience on sadly and have wanted to talk about for quite some time now. I had watched this entire series years ago when I was in university, an old friend had suggested for me to watch it and had informed me that it would shed some light on my current situation.
I was already going on dates for several months at this point and nothing was happening. It was just one failed date after another, after another, after another. I got to a point where I was so exhausted and hated everything that was going on, until I had watched this show. I felt so empowered by these women and realized that life is all about heartbreaks and failures, but we pick ourselves up and learn from them. They made me feel that it is okay to be single, even in your thirties, just go and have fun with it.
At the time I was only 22, so naturally I had to laugh at the thought that I was stressing over such a minor thing in my life that I was sure would work itself out. Well four years later I am still single and loving the time I have spent on my own, but recently I have found the need to start watching this series again, a pick-me-up as you will, seeing as I am now exhausted from this whole dating scene.
It was this second time around of watching Miss Carrie Bradshaw that gave me this idea for my blog. I started comparing her notes on men to how they have changed today in the dating scene. This segment will comprise of her ideas, but revised on how I feel men have changed from twenty years ago. Just last weekend I found myself having a familiar conversation that I have had with several other girlfriends as of late.
