This is a long. Why am I dateless al? Are guys not interested no matter what? Am I an overly confident, blunt introvert?
I've never been overly popular with the guys. I'm an outgoing-introvert these days. I do film production, acting, teach Intro to Acting, paint, garden, decorate my duplex in pastel-Tim Burton-Candyland-type art, and have a normal part time customer service job on the side. I even entered a late night writing workshop and hope I am selected! (It's in New York if I can make the trip out.)
Once, a sweet guy on a dating site asked what I "was up to this weekend." I told him I'm in a sketch comedy troupe and we have someone from an IFC sketch show (WKUK) watching our final dress rehearsal and that I felt so grateful!
The guy immediately lost interest in me. And even called me a loser/poser. I was completely stumped. I don't think I'm a loser or poser by any means. (He may have just been controlling and crazy? Maybe he didn't want to understand me? I don't know. I would not call someone those things as I believe we all can do cool things with our lives.)
Ever since then, on dating sites, I give very little information about my personal life when talking with potential dates.
I used to be less open and outgoing. I used to kind of... Mope around a bit but with a depressed smile on my face. I did some photography and modeling but was overall very sad and super thin. Guys still didn't want to date me then either. So I decided not to wait around for guys to like me (or a guy to "save me") and I went vegan and decided to get out there and help others and move out of my parent's house and live on my own, do comedy, turn every serious situation into comedy, do improv, and live a cool life and spread knowledge non-forcefully (by living by example).
I've had 1 long relationship in my life. I'm 29.
Just wondering if anyone can relate? Do you think we're evolving into a non-dating type world? Is it the wave of the future?
Are we all dateless? Is this the wave of the future?

I don't think so. Some of us naturally have a hard time finding chances for relationships, but it doesn't mean it's hopeless. Just means we gotta work a bit harder at it and not give up and whatnot.0
