Dating Is Worthless (to Me)

Time to vent... I've tried all sorts of dating sites. Every girl I meet is not right for me. I've been on all sorts of dates without anything coming of it. I've even created a set of superficial guidelines to determine whether I should spend time pursuing certain girls. I've had too many worthless dates to not have a screening process. I have resigned myself to being a bachelor. I'm perfectly content being alone. It doesn't bother me. I know I'm awesome. If no one else sees that, it's their problem. In other words, dating is worthless to me.

I think it was worth me posting a response to your post, even though we kind of talking about this at dinner the other night.

I think it's totally fine that you're feeling the way you do. Dating can be rough and not fun. It all just depends on meeting the right person. I think it's only a matter of time till you meet that person. In the mean time, stay open. You never know when you'll meet someone that changes your life.

I can empathize with you about being a bachelor. For me, it was just that I hadn't met anyone in a loooong time that I felt strongly about, or had even had a crush on - no one that I had the urge to see or hang out with. I remember when I was a kid, like in high school or college, there seemed to be one girl every year that I'd be infatuated with. That doesn't happen nearly as often anymore. It's sad, but I'm also mostly fine with it, for now. It's starting to bother me a little more every year though, when I know that the time is coming when I should find that "someone." You just can't force it. I just hope that I find that person, or that they find me. In the mean time, I wait, and try to be open to new dating opportunities, like online dating or whatever.

And if I have to, I'll start calling up some of the people I made marriage deals with, since some of those are coming due.

I see what you're saying. And I haven't been infatuated with anyone in so long too! It's good and bad. Oh well.
