I personally gave up on dating a few days ago because no guy wants to date me for some reason, they only want hookups. They tell me I'm atrrractjve and pretend to like me but then later on after I catch feelings for them they end up saying they just want hookups. And honestly I'm done with being hurt and all that bs and lies so I'm completely done with "serious"dating. And no I don't hookup with those guys either, I'm actually a virgin. My friends would describe me as nice, friendly, outgoing, caring. loyal, understanding and a overall chill strong independent person. I do plan on being really successful career wise in the future. I'm currently in college for business and I have a part time job. What I want from a guy is someone who is nice, loyal, caring and who actually likes me for me and not just my "looks". I'm also not a gold digger or anything I NEVER want a guy to pay for any of my stuff or I wouldn't expect a guy to pay for dates, I wouldn't expect him to buy me anything either. He could also have his freedom and I won't turn out to be "crazy" and over obsessive or clingy. If he wants to hangout with his friends that are guys or girls that's fine with me because I would trust him completely. But anyways I give up on dating and will probably be single forever

That aligns with me really well (except I'm 50, like too old and stuff). but what you described is me, and a certain personality type. Not easy to find.
Look for "happy go lucky" type person, go to church, maybe introverted, technical skills (like computer dude). I've seen these guys around, they exist. Note that church is not a guarantee of character traits, you have to get to know them.
Dating is hard, it is a tough environment now, probably worse than ever because it is hard to find what you want. Eharmony was the best online dating site... few matches but you get closer to what you are looking for. Church, maybe you have a chance there. my brother found his awsome wife on Match... I had no luck there only torture.
I found a great gal on GAG, have found them on online dating before in the past. I think you just live your life and you throw out the junk and keep looking for what you want. if you close off, then you may miss them like I believe I did at times. It's hard to do that when your hopes go high.
Maybe you need to start a club, a dating business, or a t-shirt to weed out the idiots. Also, I'd probably try to date a little older, but be open if you find a quality guy. There are some quality guys on this site... open your eyes girly and see if any are in your area.

I'm the same way, and I honestly did give up on dating until a couple of months ago my friend introduced me to her friend and yes I became friends with him and all of a sudden it just happened. We have been together for 4 months now and so far everything is going great and he knows I'm a virgin and he isn't pressuring me yet ( I say " yet " because things might change) I don't think you will be single forever. I thought so to about myself because all of the guys I met seemed the same " they just want sex " but I know you will finally find the one.1
