Giving up online dating
I realize that dating and shoe shopping are not the same, but there are similarities, and if you can look at dating at least a little bit more like shoe shopping and try to enjoy the process of learning more about other people and also about yourself – what you like, what you don’t like, what turns you on and what annoys you in people, etc., you are much more likely to not be frustrated with dating and to not think of giving up.
After all, when you give up on dating – you give up on yourself only, and it’s hardly ever worth doing.
It’s not a bad thing or a good thing – it’s just a normal part of life.
The fact that some people turned out to marry their first and only or a high school sweetheart is wonderful, but you can’t measure yourself that way and compare yourself to them.
They are not the rule but the exception – a rare exception.
It’s obviously not going to make your life any better.Because the very attractive women get more attention from men, are asked out more often and end up dating different guys more often, they also have more negative experiences with men.Surely, if you lost someone you were really in love with, even one break up can feel like life has betrayed you and there is no point in trying to meet someone special again, as it will lead to terrible pain again.I lead a pretty busy life, and I'd like to maintain a shred of mystery by making room for these sorts of random encounters and meetings.Another thing I dislike about online dating is that so many men take selfies.
