Single Mundanities?

Dinner for one you say? I'll gladly take that thanks, pity is not needed here!

It has occurred to me in the past year that I have had a disjointed relationship status for three years! I have been living the single life, whilst also "between relationships, that aren't quite real". Confused? So am I. 

I can't complain about my life, I have great friends; male and female. I'm very close to my family, and I date on a regular basis I'd say. However, I'm at an awkward age whereby I'm seeing many people settle down with a significant other. It looks idyllic.. but is it? I'm one of those girls who wants something, gets it and then wants something else. Single life is fab, you can call upon the men who are "like boyfriends", have fun with your friends and compromise nothing. My life is also manic, so I can't spare a lot of time!! I love it, but I'm no commitment-phobe, I miss the stability of a long term partner. 

Totting up my recent records, I attract some odd ones. First I settled for an old friend.. we dallied about for around 7 months. Met Mr Vain, then Mr Nice Guy/turned Love Rat, along with (uh-oh!) Mr Commitment-phobe. I jumped back on the Mr Nice Guy/turned Love Rat bandwagon again (fool) and most recently, met a rather lovely man by chance which is too complicated to explain why it went wrong!

Does Prince Charming actually exist or am I stuck with toads? Share your wisdom guys, do you have any love stories to tell?? Good and bad ...

(My post has made me feel hungry. I guess I'll either cook that meal for one then or perhaps a fancy restaurant date is in order; yes, us singles can have fun too!)

EDIT: I am now wondering whether I am falling into a serial dater trap. I do hope not but I fear that I am. I met Mr Posh Boy recently. The intriguing, slightly obnoxious type with a "haughty" accent. This is the second time this has happened. They're funny ones that's for sure! I will keep you updated on this one you lovely people who I hope are reading! All I want is some darn commitment!!

First Introductions

Hello, and welcome to my blog. I'm using my first blog as an intro to my life and I! To pinpoint the blog, expect me to write about life and everything in-between.. this is the aim

I'm Lucy, 24 25! years old from the lovely UK. Also a student social worker... for a while I have been looking for a source of a creative, cathartic outlet, and I am hoping this is it. My inspiration comes from a recent Cosmopolitan article about women living with scars and burns. I found the article heart warming and applauded their courage. It took me back to eight years ago when I was diagnosed with a benign brain tumour. I looked at my life and thought, "I've done well, I want other women to feel like this too". I'm all clear now but the bitter aftertaste still lingers at times. Here are my scars:

Shunt insertion from my brain to stomach to drain cerebral fluid
This scar was operated on twice as my tumour decided to re-grow!!
Tumour was located in my left cerebellum

So, that's me. Hope this wasn't too lengthy, feel free to ask questions!! My illness span a couple of years of recovery so if anyone would like to hear what occurred, let me know and I shall write a post. Have you had a life threatening illness or trauma in life you'd like to share? 

I hope you enjoy reading my blog whilst I enjoy writing and getting to know you all (bear with me while I update the aesthetics and get a professional template!)
