    The Past Year

    The past year has been full of well..a lot of sex. Which is great, in some pieces of the stories. Without even asking what kind of person I am, there is an assumption I want commitment or that I might be just like their ex-girlfriend. If I didn't have a strong sense of myself...

    Feels Like a Job Interview

    except that a job interview you always know what to say, what to wear, and everyone knows the outcome. dating is like a job interview in that you are basically interviewing each other and the company is one another's lives.  Would you be a good fit in the company called my...

    I dated someone I met in high school

    for 3 and a half years while in college. We had a great relationship; we both thought we were going to get married eventually. I had issues the last year of our relationship because we were so young and hadn't ever really dated other people. I was scared and I didn't want to...

    Stupid Lunch!!

      I don’t want to hate dating, honestly I don’t.  It is just so dam hard it seems to find love with the right person.   I was married for a very long time, so basically I am not a seasoned dater either.  Boy, oh boy was I in for a rude awakening when I put myself out...

    I don't necessarily hate it,

    but I just dislike starting over. Long term relationships are preferable for me, I understand that sometimes love can fade away and turn into comfort. But Idk, dating just isn't for me. Besides, I'm a pretty blunt person.. So I feel like an awkward silence will take place lol

    Necessary Evil

    To be honest, dating would be fun if it weren't so much work. I really am a private person and I hate having to share my story with people over and over again watching their face for signs of approval or disdain. On the other hand, I miss the feeling you feel when you finally...

    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...

    Me & Dating Dont Mix.

    Me & Dating don't mix at all. Its not that I don't wanna date anyone, It is that I don't want to have the attachment. My heart is shallow from all the times It was broken by guys. So I rather be single, then heartbroken.

    It's Poiintless

    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.

    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.
