    The Most Boring New Year Ever...

    I met the guy on an online dating site. He looked really good on his profile picture. Our correspondence back and forth was really positive. I agreed to go on a date with him on New Year's Eve. The first problem was that the person who showed up at my door did not look like the...

    I'm realizing that there is nothing good about

    dating. All it is is nervousness, awkwardness, and hurt. I wish people were just more blunt and honest about the whole process. I wish people would just say what they're thinking and feeling instead of playing games. The hurtful truth is ALWAYS less painful than the lies and...

    I hate dating It is just impossible to have a

    good date unless you both like each other equally as much. First of all, there are things a guy you never do on a date, that must guys still almost always do. Number one, don't take me to a bar on our first date. I just assume you are trying to get me drunk so you can get...

    I've given up at this point.

    It's no longer worth the disappointment, the aggravation, the wasted time and money, the overall emotional roller-coaster. At this point, the best thing I can do is accept that love is not in the cards for me and just live my life for myself.

    I love the boys that give me attention & go

    through all the trouble of "keeping up the act" of thinking they really like me just because they think I'll be an easy lay. And when they find out I'm not, their reaction is priceless.

    The Reason I Dislike Dating......

    Once upon a time I looked at dating as a social norm I'd want to participate in, thinking that inevitably, after a few tries and a good bit of heartbreak I'd find the "right" woman and eventually get married and become the worlds coolest family guy ever.... However, as I've gone...

    Dating Is Like The Game Of Life Meets Resident Evil

    The trouble with dating is you find out just how hypocritical the opposite sex is. Now since I'm a female I will be speaking about the male sex in a general way, speaking from my own experiences and observations only. I'm pretty sure what I'm about to say could be found relatable...

    There are just too many emotionally hurt and emotionally unavailable people out here. People say they want to have a relationship but they don't want to risk letting their guard down to let someone in. I'm done with the dating scene for a while.

    I have no desire to do so,

    and everyone else does. I've tried it and I was the one who broke it off because I don't like having to keep someone interested and entertained. It just feels so pointless and claustrophobic.

    I feel like I'm in the hookup generation; no

    one wants to try and genuinely fall in love. Everyone wants an accessory, a partner to lust over, but I feel like it's harder now for relationships, pure relationships to get started. Maybe it's just me, but the dating game has turned into just that, a game.

    It's just at the point

    where it's really annoying and not worth the effort. I know I have often been picky, but we all get to a point where we are set in our ways , both men and women, and neither wants to be more flexible for the other person so we often don't bother. It's a sad reality.
