I Hate Dating.

I recently dated a dumb Peruvian bigot who hated Mexicans and thought Cleveland was a state.

Before that I dated a girl who was intelligent but I simply wasn't that into her. After about two weeks and three dates I told her I didn't think we should continue dating, and she started weeping as though we had been in a relationship for years.

I've dated people who were too austere, people who weren't austere enough, shy people and megalomaniacs. I'm getting sick of dating people I don't like.

Even when I do think I genuinely like someone, it turns out they don't have any romantic interest in me.

My last real relationship lasted for two years, although I felt, and still feel, as though my love for her was never reciprocated. I loved her when I broke up with her, and to this day, more than a year later, I still have feelings for her.

I miss being in a relationship, unrequited love aside. I often hear women complain about there not being any good men. I feel like I can justify complaining about there not being any good women (then again I live in Los Angeles, land of the fake people).

Anyone else have a similar experience?

I know this piece of advice is more than three years too late, but I strongly recommend dating a coworker. You already know who has a bad temper and who doesn't, who needs to get better acquainted with a toothbrush or bar of soap and who doesn't, who talks too much and who doesn't, etc. I've been happily married to a coworker for more than 14 years and we're still going strong!

Ouch, that must have been disappointing :P <br />

My dating experience...well, it's laughable actually, but I've only been on a couple of them, and only because a friend requested me to go :) I just don't think dates are the best way to fall in love...somehow things just don't work unless everything is topsy-turvy. I still love hearing people talk about collisions in the street and subsequent "love" :D makes me feel like love isn't all just about black formals and sit-down dinners. Plus, of course, I'm told I laugh too much at dinner tables, so I'm probably not too dateable a person.<br />

I'd say just sit back and let life work it's magic...the best ones always pop (sorry, i know you don't like that word :P) right out of the blue :D

Wow. Sounds like you a bad record of dating. I can't say I've been in the same situation, but I do know what it's like to want a relationship. Until very recently, every guy I ended up liking moved away, wasn't interested or was just an *******.<br />

Being in California doesn't help either. Take it easy, you won't find anything good if you're actively looking for it.
