Tired of dating

I’m tired of dating. I’m tired of being interested in people who don’t have time for me. I’m tired of meeting person after person and rehashing the same life stories and there not being a connection. I’m tired of it all.

By all accounts dating is suppose to be fun, thrilling, and exciting. And it is for me when I’m getting to know someone. It isn’t when it’s a series of connection-less meetings at coffee shops. Maybe that is more interesting for extroverts.

Maybe this extreme frustration is a result of being sick for 2 weeks and feeling uncute and highly unsocial, but hating being alone. It probably doesn’t help that the person I’d really like to hang out with and get to know is in Portland, doesn’t have time for me (again — see a trend?), and is moving to San Fran at the end of the year anyway.

  1. I’m wondering…

    …and not in a critical way, just in a curious-as-to-your-thinking way, why it’s important to you to be dating.

    With that said, I’m sure you could enumerate some reasons for us—or choose not to, which I would totally respect.

      Dating is a means to an end. Its important for me to be dating to achieve the end goal of having someone special to spend time with. I’m a relational-oriented individual and my life is enhanced when I’m in a relationship. It’s the getting there that sucks.
