Now I am 30, I still feel the same way. I don't date around a lot because I would rather wait to find someone I truly like. I just ended something with someone about 7 months ago even though I really liked him. We had some serious compatibility issues and it broke my heart. I am finally over it though and now like someone new who I am hoping it will work out with.
The reason for posting is this: I feel like a lot of women and men my age get a little desperate and start going out with random people because they have no one better around. I was talking about this with my co-workers yesterday. One of them has had a crush on this guy at our work for months but instead of actually doing anything about it she actually started casually dating some random guy she met off the internet. I think that guy at work might feel the same way but I guess he will never know. Why do people do this to themselves?

I think you've answered your own question. people do get a little desperate and go out with random people because they have no one else around. They do it out of fear, loneliness, social pressure, etc. The reasons are as varied as the people.
At the same time, many people don't date enough. They don't realize that dating and dealing with people is at least in part a skill. People need to "practice" dating. Who knows, that guy that wasn't perfect at first glance may be a really nice guy and a good date.
