10 Reasons I'm Giving Up On Dating For Now

As you have read, I said "My reasonings." No one else's, this is just my personal opinions and experiences. Everything that I'm about to tell you is true whether you want to believe it or not that is up to you. This is more so a rant and maybe some of you have experienced the same thing. Yes I have had my heart broken. I've had plenty of sleepless nights and headaches from to many tears. This is a little more than that. Well shall we start?

1. I am so tired of hearing "you are so much better than me."

"I'm no good for you," "I don't deserve you because you're going somewhere and I'm not," or the "I don't want to drag you down." I get it, you don't want to be with me but you don't have to lie.

2. Even though I'm 22 years old my parents will question the worth of the person I'm with

Either in front of them or behind their backs.

3. I was sheltered as a child so I haven't really experienced the fun in life.

So it kind of scares me a little bit. Why do I want to be the party pooper of the group or a couple? Just because I'm afraid of my reaction are getting made fun of doesn't mean I want you to miss out.

4. I'm a full time college student.

I have tried and I have failed holding a job and going to college so I hate that I have to be a bum. It is the worst feeling in the world going out on a date and not being able to return the favor it drives me nuts!

5. I am a little person.

I'm not a midget or a dwarf but I am sure short. And I have some meat on my bones. Please please do not make fun of me. That hurts so much when someone you're a little bit interested in makes fun of you!

6. I don't like when people question my intelligence.

I do it all the time. And if anybody wants to kill me for my grammar I am doing the Google talk on my phone so blame the technology this time lol. I don't like when people act like I'm retarded and I don't know anything I'm not the smartest app on the tree but give me a little credit.

7. I can't seem to find anybody who respects my parents or my household.

Please don't come in my house and kick off your shoes and put your feet on my coffee table or just open up the fridge and make something to eat. That's a little rude, don't you think?

8. Is it really that hard to take a shower, brush your teeth, and clean your clothes?

I don't find it that difficult hygiene is a big problem for me I have not found a guy that will take care of himself. I made a lot of guys that are also drug dependent. Since I don't do anything that kind of bothers me.

9. I have came across the guys that are crazy about me that it's terrifying.

And I have came across the guys that seem like Prince Charming and then they ghost you or give you the dumbest reason that you can think of to break up. Just when you think that everything is okay and you might have found somebody you meet a guy like that. I've also had the cheaters that can't keep it in their pants and yes guys before you put me on The Gallows women do it too.

10. Last but not least, I am 22 years old and I don't want children at this point.

I'm just trying to get through school and help my family. I can't make time for a boyfriend when my main priority is schooling and my family. My dad has a lot of medical issues and I tend to keep a close eye on him. A lot of guys don't understand that. And I'm worried let's say I do get pregnant, I'd like the father to be present in the child's life. Ghost me? Okay. Ghost my child, that's really going to kill me.

    I've come across assholes in the past too. Its also hard when a guy make us feel self-conscious of ourselves. It sucks when our parents be judging who we date. None of that are good.

    Take time to be happy, take care, and love yourself first <3 I believe you're doing the right thing for yourself until you are ready and meet a good man at the right time :) Goodluck~
    Is this still revelant?

      I took a break from dating recently too! I needed to really look at my past relationships as I was not having any success they would start out good and then fizzle in a month or two. I gave to much and found out that my life focused around the guy and not around my family and friends. Learn to love yourself and a guy that truly wants to be with you will find you and you feel burned out and won't bring those feeling into the new relationship... good luck.

    Meeting people can be a lot of work and take a lot of time, so if you aren't enjoying it and aren't getting good results, you should take a break from it and focus on more rewarding things. You can also dip back into it when you feel ready to do so. Finally, meeting someone can be very random, so you never know when it might happen that you meet the right guy simply by chance.

    Well good take even though I can't understand some of your reasons , I respect them.
    And I can relate to some , such as being busy and getting rejected , and being too tall (btw I don't know why you're complaining about being short when you're a girl). and also can relate to not wanting kids.

      Im 4 10. They pick on it all the time. I like being small just dont like being a an arm rest.

    • Believe me they probably dont mean it in a bad way. And your height doesn't stop you from being attractive (I've met tons of girls that height and they all have boyfriends , even really tall bfs)., I can understand though why some people would think it's okay to push you over but believe me the right guy will see only the positives in your height and those who make fun of you are assholes.

    If your parents are criticising your boyfriends, they themselves are saying that you're too good for them, they don't respect your house - that should tell you that you're choosing the wrong guys. That's your problem right there.

      Yes. I seem to find all the wrong people, so i just gave it up for now. :)

  • FatherJack
    If my daughter brought home any cocky young bloke that does a No 7 , he would be thrown violently out of the door followed by my size 11 boot , if not my right hook !! That is a big red flag... someone that does not respect boundaries and takes the piss like that !! I don't blame you for this post , however , remember you are in THE most desired of all demographics , a 20 something female , you will have plenty of future options. Focus on working on yourself for now.

      Thank you. My dad was furious! I hope so :)

    • FatherJack

      As an ex British Army paratrooper , former boxer and Lethwei / Muay Thai and MMA exponent , I can use severe force if need be , not quite as sharp as I was , but the last scumbag that attempted to invade my property , left unconscious... to be taken away by police after I called them. My daughter is 12 , far too young yet , I am a single dad too , but preparing myself for this , she is very difficult at the moment !!

      At least your daughters will be safe! I wasn't even home at the time. I was at practice and my dad texted me about it. I guess he just walked in the house. Put my dads earbuds in his ears, made a sandwich and took his shoes off. I wasn't with him that long maybe a month. My longest relationship was 2 years and he never did anything like that.

    people are so fucked up these days it's unimaginable
    me personally it took me a looong time to find a normal girlfriend in terms of my "standards" i knew what i wanted in a girlfriend and yea it takes a long time but u gotta be open for people
    i found her on tinder 3 months together now and it looks really good in future , because yea its true that meeting people in public places is out of order
    i dont know any person that approached a girl or guy in public and they are together now it just doesn't happen

      Thats so true! I wish you luck

      Same to you :)

    • Even with online dating, it’s tough for most. You got lucky and one of the exceptions but rarely do I hear “we met on tinder or other dating sites”

  • MusicMayhem
    There's a common theme with most of those points. You care too much about what others think of you.
    • Anonymous

      I always have sadly lol

    • Maybe it's easy for me to say this as most people in my life haven't respected me but you need to learn to ignore others judgement against you and just live your life; focus on you. Otherwise people will take advantage of your vulnerabilities.

    Why is being small a reason for not dating? Shorter women are hotter anyways? It just seems like you have a problem with the guys you've found.

      Its just the point of guys making fun of me because the way i look.

      Oh... Then like i'm saying, the guys you've found are shit.

      Yes lol. Like i am 4 10. So they use me as an arm rest. I have meat on my bones and some guys I've dated have called me fat and refused to let me eat anything in front of them. I just attract the wrong guys, so hopefully i have better luck in the future

    As a guy - dating is dead. No offense but girls are just sluts. Simple. It's best to be a fuckboy now, sadly.

    I have said the “I don’t deserve you” kind of thing before but it wasn’t that I wanted to leave, it was because she was more patient with me than I anticipated over a trivial thing and I just couldn’t appreciate it more. I was so used to having women drop the conversation on me without a single hint as to why and living with a mother my first 18 years of my life who I just couldn’t make happy that I had a lot of abandonment issues when I used that phrase. So that phrase means the exact opposite to me. A lot of these other ones apply to me as well. Don’t give up though, the perfect man who will love you for who you are is out there waiting for you. You just need to weed out all the assholes first that’s all!

      sure, if you stop caring about dating, the second you come back you'll have guys wanting to date you. guys have to spend years conditioning themselves to be socialable to appear to be high status to subconciously attract girls, they have to learn to talk a certain , act a certain way, becuase when girls say "natural" they mean "act the way i want you to act.".

      You choosing to not date means rejecting every guy who asks you out, a guy choosing not to date means to stunt social progression and put his life off for years.
