I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m so frustrated with dating right now. It seems like it’s much harder to make an honest connection with someone nowadays…I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a lot pickier now or that times have indeed changed.
However, I’ve gotten better at listening to that nagging gut instinct that tells me when to hold on or let go. The last guy I dated for a bit, he talked way too much about himself when we first met. I had met him on OKCupid and he seemed cool through writing. Anyway, I was kind of bored when we met in person and I didn’t think I’d see him again after that. But, the stubborn me was like “you didn’t really give him a chance”. So, I kept talking to him. I figured that maybe he was nervous or something.
We met a few more times. He cooked dinner for me, got wine for me. Really sweet gestures, but that nagging feeling was still there. I learned later on that he hates Waffle House or Chick Fil A for stupid political reasons and he hates all the music that I listen to. Polar opposite of myself. I love Chick Fil A and Waffle House. I don’t care what those places believe in….it doesn’t affect me filling my tummy with delicious food when I’m hungry. Anyway, the nagging gut instinct voice got louder as time went on and I finally listened to it. But, I did love his cats. He wasn’t a bad person…he just wasn’t for me.
So I give up on dating for the time being. And maybe I’ll delete my OKCupid account. I’d rather meet someone through real-life adventures than online anyway.
