My life has reached a mundane repetitive habit. When I was freshly single out of a serious long-term relationship, I set out to learn how to be on my own. It was something I did not develop. I encountered a few obstacles that I can look back to say made a stronger person. I was very active in the sense that I'd religiously go to the gym and basically threw myself in the books.
Amidst the fresh taste of single-hood, I engaged in the frivolous lifestyle of partying. Oh you know clubbing, making out with random guys at clubs and having a plain ol' good time (I guess). It was fun but I guess I grew out of that. I've now graduated and attained the job I was aiming for.
Here's the thing, my job is pretty emotionally and physically draining. As a part of my training process I was working full time for three months. Now I have been shifted to a part time permanent position. I'm good with that and happy with some down time, but I've noticed that I've let go of old healthy habits; I am too lazy to go to the gym now. I hate going out and doing things on my own (i.e hiking ).
Before, I didn't care if I showed up at events in my City alone, I'd do it but now I don't want to go out alone. Or I'm just too lazy. Staying at home is what appeals me but it also drives me insane.
I am ready to date again but quite frankly, I don't know where to start. I am not a fan of online dating. I am also kind of nervous about asking a guy out. I feel that doing so will make him think I am eager and overly invested compared to him. I feel that I would be taken for granted.
I need that push to get things started up again in my life because I feel like this almost hermit lifestyle is preventing me from meeting people. I do have friends but they have their own things going on and see each other once in a while.
Any tips on how to get myself out this rut?
