JANA HOCKING’s words of wisdom for newly single Carrie Bickmore after the TV star announced the shock split

dear carrie,

First, let me congratulate you on your breakup. These pics of you in Byron rocking a yellow swimsuit are on fire! You’ve never looked so good. I have no doubt the guys will slide into your Insta DM right away.

Of course, I don’t know if you have a good old-fashioned yell while watching The Notebook with a tall glass of Chardonnay. Or when you’re doing cartwheels around the house and smiling at yourself in the mirror as you think about your new future. Or… somewhere in between.

What I’m saying is whether you’re at the beginning or the end of the seven stages of a breakup – shock, denial, anger, haggling, sadness, acceptance, and then that wonderful feeling of hope…welcome to the herd!

We singletons are a rowdy bunch, but my god, are we having some fun.

“As soon as you get used to the idea of ​​being single, you’re in for a really good time,” says Jana

To be honest, I’ve been quietly crushing on you. You’ve got your freedom back and sure, it might suck right now, but once you embrace the idea of ​​being single, you’re in for a ridiculously good time.

You see, there is no more fighting over the TV remote, the nagging about putting the dirty socks in the hamper, and the late night snoring from their hairy nostrils. No, you have the whole bed to yourself and Netflix free. Another Bridgerton episode? I think so!

But I’ll be honest with you, the dating landscape has changed quite a bit since you were last single. In fact, you’re in for a bit of a shock. First, there are the dating apps, which you’ll probably find a bit daunting at first. I suggest Raya for a fancy celebrity like you.

Also, the rules seem to have changed quite a bit. We no longer pick up the phone to ask someone out, oh no. Texting is always preferable – and that can be done through WhatsApp, Instagram, or your default texting service. Also, that ridiculous “let’s go out for dinner” business on the first date doesn’t exist. Stick to one drink just in case you need to make a quick exit.

When I think about it, there’s a lot of new dating lingo that will make you scratch your head, so I’ve put together a cheat sheet with five key things you’ll discover:

Let’s start with…

ENM = Ethically Non-Monogamous: Oh yeah, all the cool kids these days have ENM on their dating profiles. You see, people aren’t just dating one person at a time anymore. Oh no, expect to be put on a rotating roster and guess what, why not do it yourself? Get some guys posted. Try on a few hats and see which one suits you best. Date outside of your normal preference. Maybe try a trade.

Or if you really want to explore…

Experiment: Why not paddle a bit in the ladies’ pond? Experimentation is so popular these days. There is no longer any stigma against bisexuals, at least not in my circle of friends. Sure, there used to be pressure to stay in your lane – gay or straight, but these days a lot of people are dabbling on both sides of the gender scale. Why not have a cocktail with that girl you always thought was a little cute?

situations: Nowadays you find yourself in a situation rather than a relationship. Sounds confusing doesn’t it? Well that’s because it is. It is defined as less than a relationship but more than a chance encounter or booty call. Basically, we’ve all gotten a little fidgety about the idea of ​​being in a full relationship. Yep commitment is out, kinda is in.

You’ll probably find yourself trying to explain to friends and it’ll be something like, “Well, see you, but it’s not official.” (Even if you’ve been seeing each other for months… maybe a year).

Backburner Relationships: At some point you will wonder what happened to your first love. Or the guy you dated before your last relationship really took off. Anyone who has ever worked their hearts or loins a little crazy is called a backburner. Someone you want to visit again. A ghost of past friends, shall we say.

It’s very likely that you’re thinking about what happened to an ex-lover who was good in bed and debating whether you should get back in touch. Spoiler alert: you will, and you’ll be desperate to see if that flame is still there.

I don’t mind the idea of ​​a backburner relationship, but don’t be surprised if nothing has changed and you’re quick to remember why you broke up (or stopped sleeping) in the first place.

Brown flags: You want to avoid these at all costs. Sure, you’ve heard about the red flags to avoid in relationships, but brown flags are the very definition of torture. It’s about matching up with a guy on a dating app and he’ll do whatever it takes to woo you. If you ask him how his day was, he answers “good”. If you ask him what he’s up to for the weekend, he says “just chilling”. Meanwhile, you’re waiting for him to ask you a question, but you get crickets.

There are a thousand other dating terms and words of caution I could give you, but some you just have to experience for yourself. That’s the joy of dating. You never know what to expect next. If it is good, you can joyfully enjoy these butterflies. If it’s bad, it’s a great story at your next dinner party.

So when you’re ready, head to Westfield, grab some fun party dresses, treat yourself to a spray tan, maybe a cute manicure, and hit the road. There’s a lot of fun to be had.
