I guess like this one time I was being verbally abusive to my boyfriend so rather than punch me like a lot of guys would he forcefully bent me across his knee, pulled up my skirt, pulled down my underwear and spanked me so hard that I couldn't sit down for a week. I didn't speak to him the rest of the whole night, we had sex that night and I was left very wet from the spanking. I told my parents who laughed and said it's about time he took charge of me.I realise now I was wrong and have a lot more respect for him as a man and the sex is even better now, I keep our home tidy and clean now and always prepare his lunch for his work in the morning and his lunch in the evening.
Oh coach... I gave up on it YEARS ago. Around my late 20s, early 30s.I've accepted I'm probably going to be single: and I'm okay with that! I got my friends, family, job, and hobbies to keep me happy.As for why? Tired of dealing with the nonsense that goes into finding a partner: mindgames, fooling around, the "he said, she said" nonsense, lying, cheating... and don't get me started on how hard it is to find someone that doesn't try to get you in bed on the first date and assumes you're not into them if you don't! No, I'm too old for that nonsense. Just let me stay single until/if someone worth my time and energy comes around.
So you aren't 33?
33 and a half- I'll be 34 in a few months (yeah I'm old)
Ehh, 34 ain't too old.
@Jamie05rhs Oh I know, I was mostly kidding. Though looking at the average age of most users on here, I am older than most of the females on here. The median age of users on here seems to be in the late teens to mid 20s
Well, you know this isn't even a dating site, right? Lol
@Jamie05rhs LOL, yeap! I'm just on here for entertainment and to kill time when I'm bored, definitely not to date. Trust me, I'm usually the one that's warning others on here it's not a dating site- some people have to learn that the very hard way.
Yeah, that's what I'm here for as well. To kill time and be entertained. And also the mental stimulation. (But if someone wants to date me, I won't be like "NO! That's against the rules!". Haha)
@Cynicaldreamer I said the same when I started here years back. That this is not a dating site. Fun to chat up and meet up with a few gaggers. @Jamie05rhs did ended up dating one accidentally. You never know where life take you.
@midnightmoon05 "Accidentally"? Lol
Hard to say. I’m hopeful, but I don’t know how likely it is. Odd thing is, I don’t think I’m too judgmental, or unreasonable. I think I make a pretty good boyfriend. I’d hope to be in a happy healthy relationship, but unless I settle, or unless I find someone like me, I don’t think there’s much chance of success. I don’t see myself giving up enough of who I am just to be in a relationship.
Not given up, but stopped looking and paying attention. so they may slip by as I don't make effort or pay attention, which is similar result. Without effort, unlikely to happen. Wish could mail order one from JC Penny catalog... oh I aged myself... I mean Amazon!
Have an opinion?
Nope! Not yet and I doubt I ever will because I am already a romantic with no remedy 😂 😄
Almost did but then I unexpectedly met the person I'm meant to be with.
I am not a hopeless romantic. I am a hopeful romantic!
No need to. I am with the right person.
Never!! Being in love is fantastic ❤️ Can’t wait till I do it again - 7th time is the charm... I’m sure of it.
No way uv been in love 7 times
Not yet, I’ve been in love 6 times. I’m waiting for #7.
Lol 6 times? I think thats horseshit
🤷🏼♀️ I don’t know what to tell you. I have been crazy in love 6 times in my life. 5 engagements and 1 wedding.
Woah what happened?
1st & 4th got addicted to pain killers and the other one started snorting cocaine (he was medical doctor but a functional addict) crazy. 2nd decided he wanted me to be a house wife and not work and he tells me three months before our wedding day. It was horrible I wanted to be a lawyer I was honest from the start. 3rd was just a con-artist told me he had never been to jail, so I put in an application for an homeowners association and he had 7!!! Domestic abuse arrests with three different women. I was NOT going to be # 8. 5th he was already married with children in Spain. This deserves a book but I’m limited in space. Lucky number 6: married 5 years and two years ago he stopped having sex with me. Long story but we broke up. I’m older and I have kids now - so this one hurts the most. 🤷🏼♀️ and there you have it. My love life in a small gag post... 🤣
Rofl so u fall in love with really fkd up guys ehh? U shud slow. down and rethink the application process XD
Agreed. I’m taking my time (or trying) I’m seeing someone (only 3 months) he’s already asked me how I feel about getting married again and having more kids. 🙅🏼♀️ Im not in love YET - so it’s all good. 🤣
U fkd him yet?
Yes of course. After two years of no sex - let’s just say he’s a very lucky man. 😆
Rofl so u fkd him. alrdy. Congrats on lowering ur worth right out. the gate, u love bomb guys, shit. moves fast and ends fast, stop it
Lmao. Okay buddy.
Yeah i dont know shit. Ur right. Stick to ur tried. and true strategies that have worked so well for you
You’re so young, that no you don’t know shit. Life is about living it to the fullest. Things don’t always go as planned but I don’t regret one bit of it, because at one time it was exactly what I wanted. These were for the most part great men that had a fault I couldn’t live with that’s all. The fact that you put sooo much weight on sex also shows how young you are. Sex is how you bond with someone you want to be with, it’s not a magical tool that if used correctly it will influence your relationship. In fact, many would say that the fact men want to settle down with me immediately says a lot about what they think I’m worth and sex had no bearing on that fact. I know women that have never been proposed to, yet I’ve been lucky enough to have been asked many times. The older you get and the more people you’re with you’ll understand this. Live and love lots because we only live once and no one is getting out of here alive. Good luck to you!
Do you have kids?
Yes I have given up on love, been with someone who was a liar, manipulator, and a fucking hypocrite. It was so fucked up, we never made it official; he just wanted to sleep with me and I was stupid enough to let him do it a few times. I feel like men want women who take these dumb Snapchat photos with the filter on all time and show off. Also afraid of what a man's family is going to think of me too, that I'm not enough. Just done.
Social media culture is toxic. Women who seek attention can get it easily if they throw morals and standards out the window.Shallow men enable that behavior by giving them attention.But that slice of the internet is only a small part of the world, even though it's visibility is widespread. In reality, the majority of people are not like that. I wouldn't lose hope.
@Tannhauser Oh yeah, it's toxic indeed and I agree with you. I don't know at times, sometimes I get a tiny bit of hope that I will find good people.
Lots of men dont wanna commit anymore cause its scary what a woman can do to u legally.
I hope to feel love one day. Been with girlfriend for 9 months, care for her deeply. But not sure if its love. That being said i was a very late bloomer, was 35 yr old virgin, never had girlfriend or kiss even. 1st relationship didn't end well, haven't quite been same since.
Basically. My standards are too high for my own good and I cannot lower them. I have to have a woman hit all of the important points or else I have to bypass. There should be someone for everyone, but I won't find my someone. It's okay though, I'm still emotionally detached and I cannot get over my past so there's thag mental block.
No. It often feels easier to give up, and It may feel like the odds are stacked against us, but I will never stop believing that there is a right man/woman for each of us.The struggle of modern dating and swipe culture are but obstacles to overcome that will make that genuine connection so much more satisfying and powerful when it happens.Until then, stay positive and focus on yourself.
No. Because deep inside, we're more than animals. We do lust, but we can instinctively manifest love if we do not suppress it because of legality or socially.
No, I've just learned either a woman is interested or she isn't. Nothing you say or do changes that. So i just try to make myself visible. If she's interested she'll say something. No sense wasting energy
Just because one piece of shit hurt me to the core, doesn't mean my love for anyone has changed. Giving up is weak, I don't do that. All in all, I did my part and they didn't want my love, and they can't get it back and only for the next person who may be somewhat appreciative. I've bruised, not broken and the pain caused to my heart mended. If I don't have anyone to love as of right now, I just love myself. Appreciate myself, my confidence, my personalities, my emotions, my looks, my flaws, and just being able to wake up every day. I'm not going to let someone break me more than once and just give up. Giving up everything and on everyone, knowing I could probably friendzone my soulmate. I have all this love to give, knowing how to properly love and support someone in all they do, and it's not going anywhere but to the right person. I'll never give up just because some asshole wasn't the right one for me.
I haven't given up on Love, but I definitely have adjusted my expectations. It used to mean something that was undying, eternal, and selflessNow its more like something that expires, evolves or is just in my head.
Nope. I’m thirty five years old and still single but haven’t given up hope. Nobody should. Everyone deserves love 🤗
I had for a while. Then I decided to try again, and it went better the second time around. The second time, however, I did my research ahead of time, and read up a lot and learned a lot before diving in.
Never a big believer in the first place but with the current laws around divorce even if I was I doubt I could be convinced it is worth the risk... I think you need to be very very bad with numbers to consider love these days.
At this point, no but I have commitment issues that aren't going anywhere anytime soon.
Yes I have. What's the point? I can hardly make friends as it is, let alone female ones & the ones I do end up being friends with, even if there's a tiny spark of attraction, use me & abandon me once I've lost my use. I'll just stay single & chase my dreams, cuz women don't like me & that's fine by me. rather be free & single than waste my time with that garbage.
As a totally ugly idiot I am, what I learned is that "love" is only the outside affection. As I am plain ugly and got rejected or bullied always, of course I accept it I will never find my other one and I will stay virgin forever.
I’m convinced my someone doesn’t exist. I have little in common with people. 🤷🏾♀️ oh well. I’ll give myself a few years and try again
No, I think I found the right woman. It took me time to see it but now I can’t stop loving her.
I feel like the only people who say they gave up on love had just bad luck or were hurt and will come back to love anyway when the opportunity arrives.
I was about to I went back on the dating app and I’ve been with an amazing man for about 2 months! ❤️
I'm just one of those people who are really passive about such things. It's just not on my mind. If I find a relationship someday that's cool but if I don't that's cool too.
Even opportunity I had for love i turned down 😭😭😭😭😭
Yeah I don't think most people really understand it these days
I did when I was younger. I got my heart broken really bad😭
Yeah, I've given up on trying to find it. I'm not a very good looking guy & have been struggling with it for a while. But oh well, you move on to other things in life
It feels cheap, because of how quickly and easily you can lose it, while it's hard for you to cease being it.
I think i realised it was impossible around the at of 13/14.
Don't give up, bro. Your luck CAN change.
I coming close to giving up, I think definitely reached my quota for stupid.
No, because my life expectancy is 67 and I'm only 32. So I have plenty of years left to find my soulmate.
Though it would kinda be nice to be able to have sex while I'm still young. I'm not gonna lie.
True I am only 19 and sex feels different from 3 years ago
How so? How is it different? I'm curious.
No, it's just not a huge priority for me at the moment.
If I had I'd be having a lot more sex right about now >.>
I thought that I had. When suddenly this angel came along. And now I do stupid things... again :D
yes because i have been broken up multiple times it multiple serious relationships I had been heartbroken many times so therefore I have given up
Nah! Never.If it wasn't for love half of population would cease to exist.
No. The beauty of love is that I can strike out thousands of times, but only the hits count :)
Maybe, don't know for sure... because of past experiences
yep i am thinking so since i am single for many years..
I guess. Doubt any woman could make me trust her after my last relationship
I've never tried to be honest. I think I'm too awkward
Yes, because I grew comfortable with expecting a rejection, hurts less.
I'm close to giving up :(
Frankly, its love who hasn't given up on ME
Never really gone well for me
well im 18, i think there is time for me
That's the spirit!
hm, love is ok. Love is kinda overrated but ok.
long time ago for me
can't take much more honestly..
Yes, I’m too weird.
Nah. I just don't bother with it right now
Yeah, his name is benjamin franklin
Yes kind of. It is not a priority anymore for me.
Love to me is what a boulder is to Sisyphu
No there is someone I like right now.
l will never ever give up on looking for love
