The dating world can be a complicated and frightening place. But don’t panic! Potential suitors can smell fear. It’s not a good smell. It’s like old coleslaw. So be confident!
You should spend lots of time in places where you’re likely to meet people with similar interests. For example, if you enjoy history, hang out in some Incan ruins! Or a museum, I guess. That might be less expensive, and you’re slightly less likely to run into evil spirits.
Sooner or later, you’re bound to attract the attention of someone who shares your passion for ancient Andean civilizations, which personally I don’t really understand and is frankly starting to become grating. You should really try to branch out.
It’s a rarely known fact that Labor Day was actually invented by greeting card companies. This is rarely known because it is untrue. Have you ever gotten a Labor Day card? Of course not. That would be silly. I don’t know why you brought it up.
Anyway! There are plenty of things that you can do over a long weekend “staycation.” This is a great opportunity to get something done that you’ve been putting off for a while. I, for example, will be mowing my lawn. By eating it. Because I eat grass!
But it sounds like you’re looking for something more recreational. Consider taking up a new hobby, such as badminton or time travel. Or visit your local aquarium! Be sure to taunt the hell out of those sharks. They deserve it.
Moving in with your significant other is a big step. It’s a good idea to start small and work your way up. First, try building a fort out of blankets and living in it together. If you can manage to get through a week without murdering each other, congratulations! It’s true love!
Just to make absolute sure that you’re ready to move in, consider a trial period where you live outside your boyfriend’s house or apartment for a day or so. Be sure to bring a toothbrush!
When searching for a new employer, it’s important to make your resume stand out. My resume, for example, is handwritten in glitter pen and has a few of those puffy stickers on it as decorations. But you should customize your resume with your own personal style! Do you have any macaroni? Maybe you could use that!
The important thing to remember is that it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. Do you know someone who’s very well-respected in a field related to the job you’re applying for? Then you should recommend them for the job instead! They’d probably be much better at it than you.
