Look, I like going out and I like being single, but a growing part of me would rather just stay home, cook food with someone I really like, and do nothing. Well, that’s not a really strong pitch, “Come cook food with me and do nothing.” Maybe that’s my problem.

count the following as my Sunday night confession:

you know what’s not always so glamorous? dating.

sure, you’ll have a reason to dress up, an excuse to drink a fancy cocktail, you can indulge in a free meal here & there, & typically you’ll have enough natural entertainment to share with your girlfriends on the drive home from said date,

but to be honest, dating is exhausting & it’s overwhelming. i’m more than wiling to spend my own salary on clothing & cocktails & i’m getting to a point where the thought of doing nothing extravagant with someone i really like trumps all the other frilly perks of a(n) [potentially] awkward encounter.

Hi! I'm Brooke. Indianapolis is my home & I welcome you to my little nook. I'm a twenty-something girl who was born in the land of corn (Okl.), attended undergrad in the true Sea of Red (Neb.), & eventually found her way back home again after picking up a couple letters behind her name (Kan.) while clinging to an adorable Maltipoo named Bentley. Thank you for stopping by & please feel free to leave a comment (or ask a question) under the "Be Kind" tab at the top... xo, B
