I re-entered the dating world after being out of it a very long time. Initially I approached it like I had when I was young. I have been challenged both in what exactly I am after by dating and how the whole process should work. Along the way, I have learned a bit about myself - like eagerness to leap in head first for the right person (which are few and far between) and too much aversion to risk. What has been your experience? Have you learned anything about yourself or changed how you approached dating along the way?
What has dating taught you about yourself?

It has taught me that being honest and straight forward isn't as aggressive as women worry it is; a lot of them hold back how they feel or what they're thinking because they're afraid of seeming too forceful or that they'll hurt someone's feelings. Now, I am very to the point, and I say everything I feel (to his face if it is very important, never via text!) out of respect for him and myself. I'm not at all aggressive and no one has ever assumed me to be, guys just love that I'm honest and don't play games.1

That most guys my age (17/18) think we their other head and it's not worth the struggle atm. Most don't know what their looking for in a relationship past visual aesthetics and a nice girl. Like they want one just to mess around with (and maybe some emotional comfort?) Maybe later in college I might date. :)0
I learned that guys doesn't deserve trust and if you wanna to wine you must be bitchy or bitch, and life doesn't depend on guys I can be happy even if I stay single my whole life, did teach me guys are jerks all what in there minds is girls body, they don't care if they destroy someone to get what they want I got many lessons from dating.0
I learned that when I fall in love with someone, I fall hard. I'll do anything in my power to make them happy & put them first before I do anything for myself or try to make myself happy. I use get treated like shit in every relationship that I'm in. I'm trying to change that though. I'm tired of being walked all over.0
It's taught me how much it's about myself. Not the grow up, school, meet someone, settle down, kids, grow old.,
That's now a fairy tale. That isn't it at all. It's about just being at peace. Things come n go, people come n go and the ability to keep that inner flame unwavering.
That's my take...0

That hook ups and one night stands are better. Too much time consuming for a relationship and too much advice or tips that it becomes so complicated and not wanting to try. Their is also waaay to much prejudging. Like if the looks aren't the best, the persona will not be the best.
Dating needs to die since people emphasis it way to much.0
I am a huge dick.0
That im tired of hitting on shy girls1
It has taught me that I have a long way to go physically before I can make a woman happy. It has also taught me that I shouldn't settle for someone who doesn't really care about me just because I think I'll never get another gf ever again.0
I've never dated so nothing lol0
