What I know about dating these days comes from my friends who are dating and man…a lot has changed.
Forever friend zones.
Talk/text all day. No communication at night.
And a lot hasn’t changed.
Mainly…you meet people where they are and people meet you where YOU are. They were attracted to what they saw and felt when they met you.
Now…if you’re in a good place, that’s mad cool. You’re happy and all smiley and healthy and you’re all awesome and shit just straight chilling. You love your family, they love you, you have good friends, your dog doesn’t have fleas. Your tires are good and your grass is green.
You also know what kinda grass it is. Fescue. Bermuda. St. Augustine. Zoysia. Whatever. You know what kinda grass it is and you keep it watered and fertilized. You feed it, keep it cut, etc.
And it’s green and beautiful and fabulous. Just awesome.
So if someone meets you there while your grass is all lush, that is going to be amazing for both of you.
But let them storms hit hard and rain and rain and rain. All that water will stack up into a flood and wash all your good topsoil away. Nothing good but weeds can take root and they are good for nothing. They hurt the remaining grass and choke the life out of it and if someone doesn’t put some major work into bringing it back to life…it will ruin everything it touches.
So yeah…if you are in that space…you need to chill because the people attracted to that person are going to be in a bad space too. Bruh…that’s a whole lot of weeds.
Be with the people who love you and who can help repair you and get back to where you know you need to be. You don’t need to do anything other than that. Just chill. Be still. Work on what you have to work on and then…life will, hopefully, follow the natural order and you will be able to meet someone where you are with your grass all green.
I say this because I love you.
Take care of your grass.
Don’t end up with someone attracted to who you were when you were at your worst.
Grass baby. Green, green grass. St. Augustine grass. Lush and shit.
