Dating after being single for a long time

I was able to go through a number of different stages of being single, including the I’m desperately lonely stage, the I’m being kind of promiscuous stage, the Screw everybody who’s not single stage, and finally, the I’m good with being single stage.

In an effort to save everyone the trouble (not to mention the awkward moments when I bust you peering through my kitchen window at the back of my house), I’ve decided to put it all out there for everyone to see. I do know, however, that the gossips will gossip and that while I am a grown woman who answers only to me, it is sometimes less work to be blunt.
