Get Over It. Go Out With Somebody Else





Top: Design Lab – Culottes: Design Lab – Purse: Target (similar here) 

There seems to be a common trend when it comes to me and my luck with dating. I will go on about two to three dates with a guy and then he suggests that I come over to watch Netflix on our next date. I kindly say that It is too soon for me and I would rather do something else that doesn’t involve me being at his house. At this point they either don’t respond to my text and go completely MIA or they just make up some lame ass excuse and cancel our date all together. Well, this weekend seemed to pan out this way because JTT conveniently cancelled our date on Saturday morning saying that he was too hung over to hang out that night. He didn’t make plans to reschedule and simply went MIA which doesn’t surprise me. If you want to see if a guy actually likes you don’t go over to his house right away and if he still wants to hang out with you then he’s a keeper. I seem to be getting the worst luck with Tinder and have since deleted my account because it feels like a complete waste of time. I have been thinking about renting out a furnished place for a couple of weeks in Seattle over the summer. My mom really wants to come with me and take blog photos throughout city. I think I just need a change of scenery for a while and a break from dating awful Tinder guys.

  • Ugh, I have heard enough tinder horror stories to make me really grateful I found my other half B.T (before Tinder!). That said, I have a friend who found her current boyfriend on tinder and they’re going strong… I call those guys #tindertreasures haha. I can imagine a lot of guys viewing Tinder as a lazy hookup option, some of them are gross like that… A change of scenery sounds so perfect to do, it’ll give you a bit of time to find some clarity xo

    • Thanks Shaqinah, I am pretty sure Tinder is a lazy hookup option for guys. I don’t think i can weed through the trash to find a #tindertreasure

  • You look amazing in those sunglasses!

    First of all, you look amazing! So sorry to hear about your awful luck with guys lately. I’m kind of in the same boat as you being from a small town where everyone knows everyone and the selection pool isn’t that great.. I’ve never done Tinder (I’ve heard way too many horror stories), but have tried some other apps just for kicks and have come across some weirdos. One guy seemed perfect…we chatted for about a week, had a lot in common, he was nice looking and had a great personality, etc., until we met in person. I almost didn’t recognize him b/c he Photoshopped his pics (he admitted this) and he kept going on and on about how he wanted to get married so his wife could help him pay for his tuition and do chores around the house b/c it was way too hard for him to do all by himself (we are talking basic gen ed classes)! My jaw hit the floor and he was being dead serious- why in the world would you say something like that on a first date and keep whining about it. Lol. Anyway, hang in there, I feel your pain! Everyone says the right one will come along at the right time…. You deserve better than that immature guy!!


    • Thanks so much Brittany, Don’t do Tinder! It is awful! That has happened to me too where I talked to a guy for two weeks and when we met it was awful! That whole photoshop thing sounds terrible! I am so sorry to hear that. My fingers are crossed for you too!

  • Aww, it’s too bad about those jerks. I’m sure you’ll meet someone who thinks the world of you soon! Also, you look absolutely wonderful; that top is gorgeous! <3

    Oh Laura, you look so disappointed 🙁 You know, just take your time and you’ll meet the “good” (“right”…”perfect” !!) man when you won’t wait for him and please, don’t change your conception of love (and of date !) : the Tinder guys are not for you 😉 By the way : I love your lace top ! Kisses !

  • Tash Collier

    I love this look! I really like that skirt 🙂

  • That’s terrible that they are so blatant, you’re right to just right them off. Great outfit though, love the trousers

  • i love your top! xx

  • Young et Beautiful.

    That’s why I kinda hate tinder!
    I loved your outfit is so cute!

  • Good luck with the dating, I’ve been there, got the T-shirt and it’s hard work. There’s plenty that guys can do if they are worried about the cost of dating, like going for a walk or an exhibition

  • So sorry to hear about your awful dating trend, but I do think it’s so much better to find this stuff out early in the dating process. Hang in there; I know you’ll find the perfect guy for you! 🙂 Beautiful outfit as always, and I think renting a place in Seattle would be so much fun!

  • Ashley Bree Perez

    You look so chic 🙂

  • Elva Roberts

    I think feminism has made it much for difficult for women in that men think that women are just dying to be intimate. For many guys, once a woman does so, it’s the mia . My daughter tells me that bars are called ‘meat bars’ where guys go to get their latest ‘kill.’ -whatever, you know what I mean. How demeaning this is to women. We are superior to men and should not settle for this treatment.

    • Thanks so much Elva, I have learned the hard way when it comes to dating. I refuse to settle for this treatment anymore

  • Shaira Manalo

    I got interested with the title and surprised to see what’s the meaning of it in your post. I really don’t know why guys have to invite girls in their house right after they dated them once. I agree with you. They’re not worth it if they don’t wait. Btw, i love your outfit especially your top 🙂 Pretty!

    Have a great day!


  • Jasmine

    Those culottes are SO darling on you! They look like a skirt! I love that crop top! It’s so darling on you! You have the best dating stories! You go girl! I’m so glad that you’re standing strong on your beliefs! 🙂

    • Thanks so much Jasmine, they are good stories but sometimes really awful to experience

  • such a pretty top and love love the culottes!!

    Stunning look! 🙂


  • Mai Tran

    Jeez guys nowadays! So feel lucky that you don’t have to waste any more time with such jerks! Good luck in love!

  • Bummer that the whole Tinder thing hasn’t been working out for you 🙁 At least you’re smart about it! It bugs me to no end when girls have the same stupid shit pulled over on them time and time again. Learn from your mistakes! Going to a new city seems like a fun summer plan 🙂 You’re really rocking the culottes here! They look perfect with your breezy boho top 🙂


  • Love your style, the light blue bag is so cute!

  • I love your outfit! <3

    And like someone says here beneath: don't be in a rush. I'm sure you will find someone who likes you! I just quit dating for a while, because of kind of the same reasons. Dating and guys are just mostly a waste of time (except you find the right one of course!) Anyways is really like the outfit!
