My wife wouldn't approve it. ;-)3
My wife wouldn't approve it. ;-)
Of course I have, as I now reserve hooking up to be solely with my boyfriend.
I did at one point give up, decide I'll just have to accept being forever alone though. Only to run into who would later become my boyfriend a few months later so... there is hope for all you singlets!
Pretty much. Not getting too detailed, but between my depression/anxiety and what I'm looking for in a relationship, very, very few people are going to be compatible with me. Not blaming them, it's understandable! Just an unfortunate reality.
I'll still be friends with guys who want to be friends, but unless they know all my bits of baggage and still want to date me, I'm not gonna pursue anything further.
Lol nope. I mean, if I stopped associating with the opposite gender then I wouldn't have friends. My two best friends are guys. Also, while rejection and broken hearts suck, I still have some fun times with boys. I'm not ready to give that up yet.
If I gave up all association with the opposite gender, my choice of profession would choose difficult. I wouldn't be able to speak to most colleagues or clients.
YES I have!
I don't date, but when I want company I like being around men. We tend to have more things in common.
Because the beginning stage sucks ass.
When i do its only for a short while.. even when i say im done with dating and when i make an effort not to meet guys etc, there is still this little part of me that really wants to meet someone. So i have given up, but like i said, its only for a short period of time
No, I mean I almost did after my last relationship when I was fucked over so badly to the point of wasting to die, but after my current boyfriend came into my life, that feeling has went away entirely.
I JUST haven't HAD ANYONE I THOUGHT WAS INTERESTING OR FUNNY SINCE I HAVE BEEN IN COLLEGE. plus I am a virgin & sex is too complicated right now
I haven't given up! I'll never give up.
Hopes and whatnot are what keeps me going day to day. If I gave up hope, there is no chance of anything ever happening. I'd stop looking and I'd never take any chances on anything because I'd assume a bad outcome before the start. That's why I'll always try my hardest to not tell myself something like "I'll NEVER find someone." I instead say something like "I just haven't found them YET."
However, I don't do hookups. I only will go for dating. I'd rather be alone than have hookups with people. Reasoning for that tends to be that I'm looking for something more than sexual compatibility-- I'm also looking for emotional compatibility as well. I feel like only sexual compatibility would leave me just feeling more lonely than now.
I also don't want a girlfriend for the sake of a girlfriend. Again, I'd rather be alone than do that.
I dated someone a few months ago, such a bad experience if I come to think about it, I guess the problem comes from the fact that as a guy you have to sell while she is buying.
Felt like I have to prove myself while she didn't tried at all, needless to say I haven't see the reasons why I should invest energy there. IMHO she ruined the experience without reason, she let me know trough other persons that wants to be contacted months later, never did it.
Personally I hope I am done with dating forever, I simply don't like the concept, still want to engage with the opposite sex, just skip the date part, don't know how to apply yet.
I haven't even started and I've given up.
There's personal issues that lead me to doubt I could ever have a happy relationship.
Then there's doubts I have about relationships in general, like the high divorce rate, high rates of cheating and the amount of stress involved.
Basically, it's not for me and even if it was, I'm not sure I'd want one. Even though I really used to.
I did for a while after my ex cheated on me. It just didn't seem worth it because I didn't trust anyone (ESPECIALLY women) for a long time after. I eventually got over it and am in a happy relationship now, but there was a 2-3 year period in which I hated women.
Neither. I'm older and I tend to like younger women because younger women seem to have more in common with me than women closer to my own age. I don't really go places to meet women, and the last crush was a co-worker who was a much larger age difference than my usual.
Also, one night stands disgust me.
I wouldn't say I've given up. But I no longer put in the effort required to make a connection with a girl. Why? Because firstly I'm a busy guy these days who has more important to focus on. Also, lately when I do make the effort to associate with a girl I'm interested in romantically they don't seem interested at all.
No girlfriend since birth... I guess relationship is not for me, no woman would find me and my existence enticing. I'm always that guy always don't have a partner whenever I hang out with my friends and their girlfriends. All the girls I like would never see me as their potential lover :(
You can't really stop associating with the opposite sex when you have a girlfriend and most of your friends are female.
Gave up on love. Only hookups and fun. Not out of choice but women have categorised me as friend only and so have accepted that identity.
I haven't given up on dating or being friends with women but I have no interest in hooking up and casual sex.
I'm considering it.
I can't find a single attractive girl where I live that also is attracted to me.
I am picky, and would not like to settle.
Therefore, I don't do myself any favors...
Still though, I'd rather be alone than settle.
Just about to.
Yes, it's quite a hassle. Maybe I have only gone out with the wrong girls and there's nice ones out there but I don't care to find out anymore.
Don't see any reason to give it up at this stage
