    When did dating

    Advertisements
    become such a chore?

    This is my once in a blue moon being single whine.

    I realized last night that I am just exhausted from dating. It does have its fun moments, but 9 times out of 10 I enter the getting to know someone phase with a "here we go again" attitude. I'm completely bored with men, I'm completely tired of the dating game, and I've come to the conclusion that I'm more satisfied, confident, and happy being around my friends or my dog on a Saturday night than getting ready for yet another first date with yet another idiot.

    There has to be something either a) wrong with me or b) wrong with the men I'm picking because I have been on more dead end dates than I can count with all my fingers and toes. Maybe I think I'm ready for a relationship but in reality I'm not. Maybe I'm sending out the wrong signals. Maybe I'm too picky. I'm not really sure, all I know is it's not working. I've been back in the dating game for 6 months, putting myself out there both online and IRL, meeting people left and right, and yet here I sit, still single, but no longer looking.

    I deleted my online dating profile and I'm giving men a rest for the next few months. My main goals in life right now are to find a better job, focus on my education, and continue to dedicate myself wholeheartedly to my fitness goals. I think I've just realized online dating just isn't for me. It's hard to let things develop organically from a dating site I think. It's annoying having the same conversation and asking the same "getting to know you" questions a hundred times. It's discouraging to meet someone and then find out slowly but surely he's not who he portrayed himself to be.

    I'm just tired and I came to the realization that I need to start getting my own goals in order as I'm rapidly approaching yet another birthday

    And if anyone writes "It'll happen when you least expect it" I'll kick you in the vagina. That expression makes me cranky because it's so cliche. I know the right guy is out there, I just don't think I'm ready for him yet.

    You're burnt out... it happens. Just do your own thing, and enjoy it!




    ETA, please don't kick me in the vajayjay
  3. If it should, it will come around again.

    OMG! I soooo agree! Dating just sucks.

    I'm doing the whole "online" thing too and its getting really really annoying! I was suppose to go on a 2nd date tonight w/ this guy, but then he said his parents were coming up to see him...so he cancelled...w/e! No more effort on my part!

    Its fustrating!

    Girl, nothings wrong with you and you're not doing anything wrong. The dating scene is a joke!! And I only know one person who has had success with online dating. Ha but I bet now that you have officially "stopped looking", someone is going to pop in out of nowhere

    It's definitely exhausting, and I totally know how you feel about asking the same "get to know you" questions and always talking about the same stuff. Good luck and just do you, and all will be well.
