Dear No One

Although Tori Kelly has been famous for a couple of years now, I have recently jumped on the bandwagon. She is seriously a phenomenal singer. Her songs are so meaningful and eloquently sung. She embodies grace and elegance yet encompasses a down to earth vibe. One of my favorite songs from her is “Dear No One”. You know the feeling you get when a song relates exactly to your situation that you are going through? That’s exactly how I feel about “Dear No One”. The song is a bubbly tune that is a single girl anthem. Basically, the song is about how Tori is content being single. However, if there is a good guy out there then she wouldn’t mind embarking on a relationship.

“So if your out there I swear to be good to you. But I’m done looking, for my future someone…Dear No One, this is your love song.” These lyrics are spitting the truth for me. For those of you who don’t know, I am very much single. I have never been in a serious romantic relationship. Am I sad about that? No. The right guy just has not come to me yet.  But as Kelly states:

“But sometimes, I just want somebody to hold
Someone to give me their jacket when its cold
Got that young love even when we’re old
Yeah sometimes, I want someone to grab my hand
Pick me up, pull me close, be my man
I will love you till the end
Being single is great. You don’t have to “entertain anyone else” (Dear No One).  Nonetheless, every now and then I think it would be nice to have someone that can do the little cutesy relationship things like holding hands, sweet texts, etc. My mother always says that when you look for something it won’t happen. But when you stop searching what you hoped for will come to you. This definitely relates to relationships. I am not in thorough pursuit of a man. First things first, I am old fashioned. I believe that a guy should pursue a woman. However, being in college, my prospects have definitely improved. There are some guys that I do find attractive but I will not be the one to initiate it. So, I’ll just keep singing “when the time is right, you’ll be hear but for now…” I know that Love Won’t Leave Me Out. That is another song reference from another one of my favorite artists, Chrisette Michelle. I am a firm believer that if its meant to be that it will happen. So that is how I am taking my love life. I will wait for the right guy  to approach me. Or I will develop friendships that will hopefully lead to romantic relationships. With this in mind, there is no rush. I am still young and luscious. So for any of my single girls out there, take heart. Your prince charming will come eventually. Enjoy your time of solitude. This is the perfect time for you to grow and develop your personality, career, and goals.

Well that’s all I have for today. I hope this was inspiring. Feel free to comment and share. I will leave a link to the video and lyric video for the song in case you’ve never heard it.

Stay Fabulous,
