Dating Scene Minus One
I would like to take this moment to announce I am officially off the dating market. I have not found anyone, I am just off the market.
In all honesty, I can count the number of dates I’ve had on one hand. if you take out blind dates, that number is even less. Okay, it is zero.
It has not been for a lack of trying. It has been for a lack of success. Nine times out of ten, whenever I would ask a woman out on a date, I would receive the answer, “no” (the tenth time had an answer of, “Ew, no.”). It does not help that I am not really all that comfortable in most social situations. It helps even less when I don’t drink alcohol or carbonated drinks, so going to bars is not really an option for me.
I have tried internet dating sites. That did not go all that well, as those who have read past entries know. Mostly I got no replies to my messages. Those that did reply turned out to be pushing web came sites. Eventually, I gave up on those sites. My profile is active on some of the free ones, but I don’t go on them. there’s no point in throwing salt on those wounds.
I began to think it over. I figured I could continue to torture myself and keep trying. But, that was having the wrong effect on me, making me feel more alone and more negative. I could try to change what I think it the problem. I mean, are there really a lot of women out there who want to date a casual gamer comic reader amateur writer who never takes any time for himself? I am who I am, and changing that would just make me miserable. Or, I could just drop out of the dating scene. I would be spared the pain of failing, over and over and over. I would not have to change who I am, which I should not have to do just to not be lonely. And, I would not have to worry about bugging some woman who does not want me bugging her.
Now, if only Facebook would offer “undateable” as a relationship option, everything would be perfect.
