Hello all! I hope everyone is doing well! I just wanted to take a minute or five to express my gratitude to all the readers out there. I’ve been receiving a tremendous amount of positive feedback and responses lately and for that I am totally grateful. It’s a tough gig – I’m vulnerable to judgment from everyone and their mommas with every word I type! But, I don’t let it get to me because I’m confident in my work. Honestly, I’m just glad people actually take time out of the day to read my blogs! Haha. So, thannnk youuuuu Skouts. You guys and gals are the best!
Doesn’t it feel like Summer started just a few days ago? I can remember writing my Finally, Summer’s here! blog anticipating all the fun times and memories I’ll have this Summer. It’s true; time does fly when you’re having F U N. It came, conquered and now it’s getting ready to up and leave us! I’m totally not a sun person but I took pleasure in the beautiful California weather we were graced with. I even found myself sunbathing here and there, gasp! Never before did I think I would literally soak up the sun like that. Haha.
Now, looking back I can giggle at all the memories I created this Summer. I celebrated my birthday (officially a quarter of a century old!!), I went to the movies a bunch and watched almost all the Summer blockbuster hits, I celebrated my childhood friend bachelorette’s party, caught up with friends I haven’t seen in forever, tried a few new restaurants and eateries, spent some quality time with the important people in my life, etc.
But, enough about me, I’m curious to read what Skouts did this Summer?! Do share!
I’ve missed you guys! Yup, you and you and mostly youuuuu! No worries, there’s enough love to go around all of Skout! It’s been a while since I’ve blogged but I’ve been a busy beeeee. As always I have a question to propose. Answer wisely but most importantly truthfully and we can possibly learn a little something from each other!
So, a few days ago I was at the movie theater watching a certain captain movie and I realized that my first official date was to watch a movie (I’m sure many others are on the same boat). I remember we bus’d it as far as we could then walked the rest of the way there. Ahhh, what I’d give to be a teenager again…those were the good ol’ days! We can’t possibly imagine doing that nowAdays, it’d just be way too complicating because with age comes responsibilities. Boooo!
Anyways, what I’m attempting to point out is that you’ll ALWAYS remember your first date! It’s could very much be a life changing event. Kinda. It’s just one of those moments you don’t forget so hopefully you made/going to make good decisions to help create those unforgettable memories. Hmmm, for those in a relationship…do you remember your first date?
As clichE as the idea of dinner and a movie sounds – it’s classic! Granted it is the safe and more traditional route but there’s nothing wrong with playing it safe, right?
Speaking of safe, if you meet someone on Skout, the first time you meet in person be sure to follow our safety guidelines: www.Skout.com/onlineSafetyTips.jsp
Skouts, let’s say things heat up with your flirt and you both agree to a date! Now what? What would YOU do or where would you go? Be realistic, please.
