Sure, you might drag it out for your own personal reasons, but you’ve already judged them and found them not worthy. It’s admirable that you want to put that much work in, but if there’s no attraction or connection after one or two dates, just let it go already. Don’t let friends and family guilt you into dating anyone you don’t like. You keep wondering why you can’t find someone you do like.I cried my eyes out for a week and then I downloaded Tinder. In fact, for a while my friends labeled me a serial dater.I was addicted to meeting new guys and judging them quietly in my head over dinner.Skip the people who are obviously not a good match and keep your heart open for the one you can actually see a future with. You dread the date, you can’t stand the person, yet you go out anyway. You pretend to give a damn, but it’s obvious you don’t. Imagine if all you’re doing is dating people you’re not really interested in. Learn a new language, take dance classes (you’d be surprised at all the hot singles there) or try out yoga in the park.Believe it or not, you’d be happier single than torturing yourself like this on a regular basis. You’re not just wasting your time, you’re wasting the other person’s time, too. Suddenly, you hate dating 10x more and no one can stand to be around you on date days. While you’re busy dating anyone and everyone, even those you don’t like, you’re probably missing out on all the right ones. Just do something other than going on one miserable, pointless date after another. You didn’t like them on date one or date five or date 20.When you’re young you don’t really think about all the variables probably because you’re only focused on one thing, sex.
But as you mature and your time and resources become more valuable, you realize that children can change the entire dynamic of a relationship.
Do you really want dozens of failed romances in just a few years? You deserve great dates and meeting new people who you have a real connection with.
Sure, it’ll take time and you might not go on as many dates, but at least, you might actually enjoy yourself.
However, there are certain realities you must face if you decide to date a “real parent”.
It’s important to make that distinction because these are the people who put their children first, as they should.
Maybe you just got out of that relationship and can’t stop thinking about them, or it ended years ago but certain things like the faint scent of their cologne or perfume triggers their memory. We had a bond that no one could break, and I just knew he was “the one.”But with any great young love, things aren’t always as perfect as they appear.
