Kim Kardashian says she needs to stay single for an entire year to find the perfect man. Is she pipe dreaming?
Oh, Kim Kardashian, what am I going to do with you? Every single time the reality starlet has a failed relationship – like former football-playing lovers Miles Austin and Reggie Bush – she says she’s taking a year-long relationship hiatus. But does she mean it, and will it work to help her find true love?
Her intentions are good, but do I think someone as in love with love as Kim clearly is can go a year without a boyfriend? No, I do not. At the age of 30, the Kardashian Konfidential star is ready to settle down – and I believe she’ll renege on her resolution like she’s done in the past.
But should YOU ever take a boy break when you find yourself unlucky in love?
Quite honestly, it isn’t the most awful idea in the world – as long as you’re focusing on something else during that time. For example, tell yourself ‘instead of going out boy scouting at this bar tonight, I’m going to take a photography class that night. I’m going to macramé. I’m going to learn how to speak Cantonese.’ Whatever, you get my point: fill the void.
And unless you’re writing a book like Eat, Pray, Love, don’t make yourself suffer by going man-free for a year. Set shorter goals for yourself, like a month or two. The beauty of this plan is that you can always prolong your time in male-free purgatory.
Would YOU ever take a break from men, HollywoodLifers ?
