No luck on online dating
So, if you have been searching for that special someone online, but have been feeling discouraged, don't give up hope.If you need to deactivate your online dating account for a period of time to gain some perspective or breathing room, so be it. I am not ugly and I've had many girls tell me I'm good looking, attractive, cute and had a couple say they would sleep with me.It seems that unless I have some super great photos up of me posting with my shirt off or something, I get no replies. I am frustrated with my dating life and my sex (or lack therefore) life. I have never really had a proper girlfriend, well, not one that I've been with long enough to actually call it serious.By this point, the Facebook frenzy was in full swing and it seemed that more and more people were making connections in the virtual world.I created another profile and was pleased to see that there appeared to be more people on the dating site than before. I was glad when, once again, a friend came to my aid and set me up with one of her grad school classmates, who happened to live in my neighborhood.So I listened to my instincts, and I put myself out there.
I have been on first dates that would make even the most seasoned daters cringe and I have been on first dates that were absolutely perfect from beginning to end.Online dating was still a very new phenomenon and many of my friends were horrified by the idea of putting up a profile declaring my "single and searching" status for anyone and everyone to see.But I was, in fact, single and I did want to meet someone.I was tired of the tedium of searching for someone, so I shut down all of my accounts and told myself that I would never return to the agonizing world of online dating again.Turning my romantic life into a job wasn't proving itself to be satisfying, and so I found it easier to retreat into an acceptance of being single. I focused on the other things in my life that made me happy and believed that, if I was meant to meet someone, I would.
