I know most of you just read the title of this post and are probably all “WTF?” and I totally get it. This whole hating dating thing is a new realization for me and I’m kind of surprised too. But really I’m just over the whole thing.
I am over paying money for dating websites with creepy guys on it. I am over getting “set up” by everyone I know. I am over stressing out over what to wear and then wondering if I’m dressed appropriately. I am over the whole ordeal really.
I hate the awkward first date conversations…especially if it’s a blind date or an online date and you don’t know each other beforehand. I wish there were a manual that you just went by on first dates to make it less weird. Can I get an amen here??
I hate the whole where do we end things…a kiss?? The awkward hug?? The even more awkward handshake?? And then there’s the whole waiting game post date. Do you text or call first? Do you wait in him to text or call? If her texts/calls the same night does that enter him into creeper status?
So basically I am over dating. I have always been the type who doesn’t date for “fun” I have always dated with the intent to find my potential husband. I mean what’s the point of dating if it doesn’t have the potential to go somewhere? GAH!!
All of my friends and family just say that I am too picky and that I need to settle but I refuse to settle just because I am 31. I will wait and find my guy that was created just for me, my perfect person.
I am perfectly content with being single at this point in my life. Maybe a little too content? We will see…
Are you over dating? Did you ever feel that way? I hope I’m not the only one…
I’m over TRYING to date. I find it almost impossible to get a guy to take me on a date. I might’ve been on 3 dates in my life. I meet tons of guys online and they all want to just come over or want me to go there.. no guy ever wants to take me on a date and if he does he’s someone I’ not interested in..that might be my fault, I dont know. I’m not the kind of girl to just sleep with someone so it leaves no guys for me because there are very few guys who actually want to date. It’s so frustrating and the thought of never having a boyfriend, a wedding or babies scares the shit out of me but Im tired of trying and trying and trying and getting no where. I’d rather be with my friends.
I am with ya, sista! I have been single for almost 2 years (in November) and I have looked on okcupid, plentyoffish, zoosk. I just seem to attract only CREEPOS and people that are at least 10 years older than me. NO THANK YOU!! Haha. I did match the first time I broke up with my ex and still got the creepos. I don’t know how some women make it work.
I’m DEFINITELY over dating. I hate the awkwardness, and I just deleted Tinder off my phone. But what I struggle with is, how are we supposed to meet ANYONE these days when bars are disgusting and online dating is so awful??

I’ve always believed that the right one will come along when you are not looking for them. I met my husband through a random ICQ message back in ’97 and as they say the rest is history. :)

I am right there with you, Ricci. Except I’m on a free dating site and no one is setting me up. But I’m still over dating. Why is it so hard to just meet people naturally? At this point, I’d rather stay single.
Very informative post, i am regular reader of your site. I
noticed that your website is outranked by many other blogs in google’s search results.
You deserve to be in top-10. I know what can help you, search in google for:

I hated the dating scene! I had no problem getting married at age 22 and quitting the dating process. I applaud you for not settling because you are in your 30s. I hear about some women lowering their standards because they don’t want to be pregnant at 38 or something. But what if their kids are emotionally/mentally damaged by a divorce someday, because their mom married the wrong person?
