I'm thinking not dating for the rest of this year and probably next year. That's about the time I need to graduate school and get my life started. I'm taking the steps to get rid of the negative things in my life and tbh, guys is one of them. I'm not saying all men are bad but they do tend to come with some pretty bad experiences. I don't want that so it's time for a lifestyle change.

I took a break from serious dating for the past two years after ending a long term relationship. Got in the best shape of my life, graduated summa cum laude, moved to an awesome new city, landed my dream job, have met a lot of interesting and beautiful women, and just generally enjoying my life.1

It's definitely important to take a break from dating when you feel like it's having a negative impact on your life. It's good that you noticed that and are taking steps to heal yourself so that you can come back to dating with a fresh perspective. Too many people don't take the needed breaks and end up becoming super bitter and it just makes their dating experiences worse.
Coming back to dating when you have had a chance to make some necessary changes is only going to make you a more attractive and better partner. So you will probably find it has a positive impact on your dating prospects.
I take occasional breaks from dating. Currently I have been single for over a year, which is the longest I have been single in a while. I'm not in a rush to get into a relationship any time soon, unless it is a good match.
I'm taking time to work on myself, follow my passions and figure out what I want out of life. It sucks because I would like to find someone. But I realize it will happen when it happens. I can't do anything to change that.1
