Blink If You’re Into Me

Could you imagine . . . “hey handsome, go ahead and BLINK IF YOU’RE INTO ME“.

Do it with me now . . . throw your head back & let out a nice sarcastic HA! If only dating was that easy. But seriously picture everyone at bars, beaches, wherever walking around, not blinking, or at least trying really hard not to until they were into someone. If you know me, you can imagine how much of a kick I’m getting out of this ridiculous imagery in my head. That “wide-eyed” emoji would be so real . . . the realest. Finding prince charming seems to be getting close to nearly impossible, and writing blogs about it is getting harder because I’m running out of ways to complain about it!

“I’ve been dating since I was 15, I’m exhausted! Where is he!?”- Charlotte // Sex and The City

So let’s stop complaining, and get REAL. What the shirt should read is, “Make sure to not text me back, don’t show emotion, don’t commit, and please tell me everything I want/need to hear, make me believe it, and then break my heart”. Okay, I swear that was the last time I would complain. But can I get an AMEN!?  I simply CAN NOT with these dang dating apps, and I just wish everyone on planet earth would get over their commitment issues, turn off their social media, and stop thinking that they can always do better. NEWSFLASH . . . hate to break it to you . . . you probably can’t, and you should probably just appreciate the beautiful human God has set before you.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m ALL for NOT settling. You should be with a person that sets your soul on fire!! I still to this day quote Lauren Conrad (my girl LC) from an episode of The Hills when she said, “love is not a maybe thing, you know when you love someone”. I know so cheesy you’re probably rolling your eyes into oblivion, and pretty sure I’ve already written out that quote in a previous blog post . . . BUT SHE was RIGHT.

I’ve witnessed way too many love stories to believe that love, relationships, should be anything but ordinary. We were put on this earth to love! We were put on this earth to build relationships with one another! Why wouldn’t you want deep, pure, honest, loving relationships?

I wish this could be a blog where I could give you a list of ways to make dating easier, but unfortunately I’m still on the search for that stupid list. I’m sure Bree has it hiding somewhere in her room with all her other lists! All I can tell you is . . . hi, my name is Makenzie, and I’m seriously struggling just as much as you are. Also . . . don’t give into the games because you’re only making it worse. For yourself, for me, for mankind! I’ve gotten to that point where if I want to talk to somebody, I will . . . if I want to be honest, I will. Now I’m not telling you to blow someones phone up when they reciprocate absolutely nothing. But I am telling you to DO YOU. Don’t pretend to act a certain way at first, and then change half way through to the real you. What!? No. When it comes down to it . . . if it’s not meant to be, it’s just not meant to be, and that stings . . . ohhh does that burn. But it’s not because you said something wrong, or because you responded right after he/she texted you and didn’t wait an hour. It’s because he/she isn’t it.

So be honest. Honest with yourself. Honest with what you want in a partner. Honest in your relationship, and stop being afraid! shop my look //

the sweater that embodies me as a human being :: MY MUM . . . yeah go ahead and read that a couple times over, but it will still say the same thing every time. My mother made this sweater for me, BY HAND. She literally blows my mind, and makes my absolute wildest fashion dreams come true. I sent her a photo (like I always do) of Gigi Hadid wearing this exact same sweater with probably the comment “WANT” . . . and bam-presto it was made!
