I'm sick of dating? Has anyone ever felt this way?

Has anyone ever felt this way? I guess when I date someone I want it to last, something long term but it always never works out. Now I feel it's forced, or playing games. I just feel tired of it. I guess I keep meeting people that can't commit or be loyal. I'm just tired of starting over, anyone ever felt like this?

  • I always find when you take a step back and focus on your happiness alone is when the right guy comes along. It always seems to happen when you're not looking for it.

    I took a break from dating for nearly a year, and when I least expected it HE came along, by that time I knew what I wanted, I had boundaries set on what I would and would not be able to accept or tolerate, knew all my deal breakers and HE was everything I ever wanted and more, as loyal as they can get and treats me like I'm a precious gem.

  • Yes, that's why I'm practically a monk in isolation most of the time.

    If you're seeking people just for the sake of dating, you're already trying too hard and going in for the completely wrong reasons. That's what you're discovering now. Attraction is an organic connection between two people who walk similar paths in life and share similar values. The best love grows over time, not because an algorithm determines that you'd be a great match.

  • I'm in the exact opposite boat, I'm actually sick of being single. Don't get me wrong, being single and not dating does have its benefits, but it gets old after awhile. I've never never had a girlfriend or had sex. I've only been on ONE date in my life (and she told me to be "friends" after that.) I've had countless rejections too.

    But I see your point of view here, although I'm not looking for anything serious or long-term.

  • I'm not sick of it, it's just hard finding a women that is similar to myself and wants what I want, and I only ask out those that I see as marriage material because marriage and a family is one of the few reasons why I court in the first place. Of course it does help that my last relationship was really serious and ended very painfully so I haven't fully recovered from that.

  • You have no idea.

    Its that society places so much desire/positivity on a purely sexual relationship vs one that is a long term loving emotional kind.

    Its what I keep saying on here, its the hookup culture slowly destroying the idea of a romantic relationship

  • Well at the very least you should take some time off of trying to date if this is how you feel about dating right now.

  • Yeah. I can understand. I would prefer to be in a serious relationship instead of trying to get a date only to be led to rejection or nothing. It getting frustrating.

  • Yep. Sick of it. People are so selfish and trashy today. I've stopped dating, stopped having sex, and I'm just focusing on business now. It's the only thing worth giving half of a fuck about.

  • I will only date those whom I think could possibly be marriage material. I hate wasting my time and feelings on something temporary.
