How to give up Dating for Lent!

This short story is taken from my self-published dating book... I've decided to add parts of the book to my blog so that you'll get to enjoy reading all my fun stories!

Give up Dating for Lent: Lent is a period of fasting, moderation, and self-denial traditionally observed by Catholics. So, in terms of dating, it makes perfect sense to give it up for a month to find yourself again. There are a few things that I would like you to do during your “dating lent” because once again if there are no rules to this challenge what’s the point?

Storytime: I went on a 3-month no dating for lent once and it was amazing! I remember my friend Russell and I decided to do it at the same time. We were tired of dating the same people over and over and getting disappointed. I remember our first week in, we reported to each other and it had been a hard week for both of us. Our phones had suddenly stopped buzzing and we were bored out of our minds. Fitness was where we spent most of our focus on. Our bodies started to show how much dedication was put into it. We also focused on things in our lives that needed to be worked on but had been previously pushed aside. For example, doing projects, reading, eating delicious food, meditating, and writing down lifelong goals.

We both constantly got texts, snaps, and DMs from guys trying to figure out what we were up to. It was interesting! At the end of the experience, we realized how awesome it was to take for ourselves to focus on goals and just life in general. It also gave us a clear vision of what we wanted our future partner to be.

PS: suddenly being a HOE didn’t sound as exciting as it was before.

Ready to try it? Here are the rules:

  1. Delete all dating apps from your phone!

  2. Take a social media break

  3. Write a list of 5 things you would like to accomplish during that month

  4. Pick up a new hobby

  5. NO SEX! (I know, I know) trust me though, it will make a huge difference in the end.

  6. Reconnect with old friends

  7. Do it with a friend! It will make the process much easier since you can keep each other accountable for it.

  8. If you haven’t yet, FALL IN LOVE WITH YOURSELF!


Now here is the deal, you’ve tried those two things. You are keeping your head above water and good lord doesn’t it feel so good? I hope that by now you are ready to kick ass in your soon dating escapades.
