So I've never been good with relationships and rarely enjoy them. Majority of my time spent in romantic relationships is filled with frustration, anxiety, guilt, or wanderlust. Even sex is filled with disappointment and/or fear. I hate the small talk of texting. I hate having to remember minuscule details. I hate feeling responsible for other people's happiness while often getting nothing in return. It's all a huge negative experience for me. And I'm not a very negative person despite how this post sounds. In fact relationship stuff is pretty much the sole source of negativity in my life. I thought for years that all I need to do was find the right person or learn the right skills or just change my perception of it all but nothing seems to work and I've hit the point where I don't want it to work. Each time I try dating someone new the idea of 100% isolating myself from the rest of the world becomes more and more appealing and I hate that because I have a wonderful family and a lot of absolutely amazing friends but dating makes me hate people. It's just so much drama and confusion about things that barely even matter and I just want help removing myself from it all so I can just enjoy living with my friends and family. How can I stop craving relationships?

Wow! While you hate many aspects the dating process and relationships, you admit to craving it, and maybe the craving is not a bad thing, a desire to connect which is actually normal. It is just seems you have not found a right fit or are you running into dating the same type of women? Are you really okay with being alone for the rest of your life? Or are you just giving up due to your experiences? The fact that you have family and friends, and ready to swear off relationships, but crave it, should tell you missing something. I hope you find something right for you and don't give up. I'm not sure there is a way to stop that craving, it is most likely there for a reason.0
