I have been on numerous dating sites okcupid, pof match. com, and eharmony most women just ignore my messages and the ones that do respond aren't ideal situations for example I got a message the other day from a single mother of two. She lives 70 miles away and I don't drive, I'm also in school I'm far from settling down and becoming a dad
I will say to you that waiting for love is a waste of time. Waiting is a waste of time. When you wait, you stop your life and your activities because you're so anxious and determined to receive x thing. It seems to me that many times when people are waiting for a certain person, object, or opportunity, they miss many other shots in life for things that were way better. tl:dr don't wait, live life for the moment and become aware of the possibilities arising next to you. Don't give up on dating, change your method.
1) Don't give up. You're in school and also in your prime am I right? If the dating sites aren't working, I suggest you delete every single one, but that is up to you. 2) Patience, be patient. I'm not saying you have to stop looking. By all means look high and low for that one perfect girl, but don't make it your top priority. I'd say you focus on finishing school and getting your license (if this may be the case as to why you don't drive and usually the most common) to make the time go by faster as you take a break from your search. That special someone usually comes to you out of nowhere when you are least expecting it opposed to when you're constantly on the search. I've seen it happen, it could happen to you too.
That he's giving up pretty easily, but I can't make someone want to try. I have no pity for such people because they're a dime a dozen. No one is owed a relationship. You're not going to meet someone by sitting alone at home and moping.
Do what ever makes you happy. If stopping trying to date does that then go for it. You can always decide to pick it back up at 25 or 26. If you decide your done then that's fine. If you don't want to stop then you are only hurting yourself though. Just do you. In my opinion high risk equals high reward. It only takes one quality woman and one yes... the more crap you go through, the more obstacles the more you appreciate the good when it comes around.
I wouldn't say anything to him, that's his choice.
I've kinda given up dating too, and I'm younger than you, but I know it isn't something definite, I just need to figure out my life and what I want first
Why don't you try meeting people in person instead of dating sites? Perhaps at work, or at school? Don't give up, you're only 24. There are people like 55, perhaps older, that still date lol So hang in there!
Why not work on whatever you think is stopping you? Learn some game, lift weights, dress better, do more cool shit etc. There's a movement called MGTOW where guys say they've sworn off women and that they're happier for it, but they all sound miserable as fuck. You can pretend or kid yourself into believing it but you know it's not the truth. Work on yourself.
Just do your thing. There's this HongKonger proverb "Good fortune does not come to those who relies on brute force". You're 24, if romance is gonna happen , it's gonna happen , if not , well tough titty , there are plenty of other things to do.
