Mayte's Dating Chronicles: House Rules...

Before you tell a story, it's always important to consider your audience and your relationship to that audience. Keeping that in mind, before these dating chronicles start, you should know the following about me:

(Pictured: the corner of my bookshelf. On it, a yellow candle by Elisabet Velasquez stating "I am not driven by the things that I want, I am driven by the things I am", a small plant and an amethyst crystal with some palo santo and a bundle of sage.)

I am single. This means that I am in a relationship with no one, no one is in a relationship with me and there is no one that thinks they are in a relationship with me.

I am grown. I'm a whole ass adult. I'm not sure what that means beyond I pay a lot of bills and my knees hurt.

I have absolutely no idea what I am doing for most things. But I always figure it out.

My last relationship was a lot to recover from. This blog and my life is not about my ex. It is about me.

I think I'm at a point where I'd be open to welcoming a relationship into my life. But I don't think I'm actively looking for one. Cause I would be the one to look for a relationship and find Covid instead. Is this the time to consider long distance?

I'm pretty realistic about the fact I might be single for a long time. I'm still coming to terms with how I feel about that.

I've been redefining my understanding of family, of community. I'm aware that my future will look like nothing that I had previously envisioned. Apparently, I never dreamt big enough before.

I'm working on being present. To not place unrealistic expectations on men who are not supposed to stay. This is a very fancy way of saying that I'm trying to find some chill. A first date is just a first date. I'm a hopeless romantic so consider this a work in progress.

I am open to having an expansive list of crushes, though. If anyone wants to make me a mixtape to declare their feelings for me, I'm about it. Put a bachata song on it so I know you're serious.

Drink some water. Wear a mask.

Why didn’t anyone tell me MySpace was coding?

Every so often in my instagram stories, I’ll ask people to send in questions. I do this every so often. Maybe because It makes me feel like people want to get to know me or because my brain will draw
