Discover why it's no big deal to remain single for the rest of your life. Relationships are not meant for everybody. Jan 2015 - 10 min - Uploaded by David Johnson OraguiRelationships are not meant for everybody. It's not like a "thing"; I'm not out on some crusade to be single.
Are You Not Interested In Dating Anymore?
The men you speak of exist BUT THEY ARE. There're plenty of people that have a low to no sex drive. There's a difference between being patient with someone & wasting your time. They demand the same things that women want. Those who win the so-called “genetic lottery” are said to have their pick of the dating field.
Same here when it comes to dating. So take kids step and hope we don’t get played. So when she doesn’t get what she wants, she insults men? Some leading to healthy relationships and others not so healthy. Some might think that if a man asks a woman out, he should have a plan for what they will do. Sometimes it is better to give him/her a brief thanks, but no thanks.

That said some of y’all signals be confusing and you ain’t as approachable as you claim. That said, for myself, I would need chemistry and I have never found that chemistry grows. That’s why we’ve created extra labels like “talking” that keep things casual.
- "Dating someone" does not necessarily mean "being fulfilled and in love.
- "This is our relationship, only you and I can define how we go about it, based on what is most comfortable.
Hi Lisa, I’ve seen many comments and your comments and I’m pretty sure that you did not expect the frustration that you received from a large proportion of men in response to your post. I also hate the whole dating process because I have to do all the initiating, get rejected sometimes and all that.

You are young; you might meet the woman that would be your perfect match in everyway. You can broach the subject indirectly or directly. You may feel like it’s not your problem that your unsuitable lover can’t get enough of you.
We feel like we can live without it — until, of course, we can't. We just date for the wrong purpose. We're almost 30, been together for almost 4 years now. What a stinking heap of bovine manure that statement is!
I’m only asking a girl out on a real date if I think there’s some actual relationship potential – if I like her beyond her looks. I’m saying no one should chase anyone. I’ve actually dated people who, when I would call them, would reject my call and text me back.
- Remember: If he’s not in hot pursuit, forget about it.
- Most of those kinds of dates I've gone on have been too loaded with weird expectations to really get to know the other person at all.
- Being selfish and holding onto your autonomy is NOTHING to be guilty about.
- Forgive me for being old school, but I do think it’s up to the man to lead–ask a woman out, suggest a date, let her know you’re interested.
To me, the only reason for dating was marriage. To some people you’re saying, “I want to be with you, but I can’t because I’m taken. Tons of women on relationship sites admit that if she asks, she’s more willing to pay (or split). Usually, you can safely assume that a guy will contact you if they want to talk to you. We all saw that as terrifying at some point.
Are you still interested in me?
It sounds like you already have your answer. It was the last time I believed any man 'just wanted to be friends. It's all about being an optimistic. It's entirely possible to like women and sex tons and still not want to put your pee-pee in somebody you don't know well enough to trust.
I'd lived with my parents, and then with roommates, and then with a boyfriend who became a husband. I'll figure out the dating thing later on.
Are you no longer interested in dating anymore?
I was doing it “just because” – there was no autonomous thinking behind it. I was engaged in discussing the topic, Tess, not thinking for one moment it would upset you. I was never allowed to date so now I'm 23 and it's biting me in the ass. I wish I could meet a nice guy, a real one in the flesh. I would say I gave up on dating 15 years ago, but as I've never really dated anyone that's not quite true.
Bros before hoes, and chicks before dicks. But front and center in our lives are: our lives. But we deserve to order off the right side of the menu for a change and get appetizers, we have feelings to. By not addressing the situation, you will often succeed at exactly the thing you want to avoid: hurting someone. By the time you're in your thirties, you see it for the bullshit hassle it is. Dating for the sake of dating isn't really dating.
If you choose yourself now, you can wholeheartedly (and healthfully) choose someone else, somewhere down the line. If you don't want to spend your emotional energy and the weekends of your youth committing yourself, bit by bit, to somebody else (sheerly by how much you do together and sacrifice for one another), you'll end up more wholly yourself and less desperate to settle with whomever you can attach your hopes and dreams to next.
It's the constant digging before you find someone to date that I hate. It’s always best to reach out and ask directly rather than just assume he’s lost interest. It’s basically saying, “I’ve realized that I want something different from this relationship than they do, so for now, I’m going to pretend to want what they want even though I don’t. I’m not a chaser, so why should i make him jump through hoops?
Does he joke with you as much? Even when we are together I feel like he's no longer interested in me. Every now and then I wish I weren't a 25 y/o guy with no dating experience, but at this point I'd much rather just do something for myself on my own time rather than put work into someone not in my family. Every time I end it for the same reason. From my experience, most men and women aren’t concerned about the actions of the new love interest; they’re more concerned about how you handle them.
I am not a virgin, I have had sex before, and while it was very meaningful with the man I loved and I enjoyed it somewhat, I have never felt like it was this amazing thing that some people make it out to be. I am not depressed or anything, just busy (and happy) with my life. I deleted my online dating profiles and mobile apps from my phone. I don't do the whole relationship bullshit and life is so much better.
I love friends, so I would be quite excited about that. I may be physically attracted to a girl, but if I already know that she’s not somebody I’d want to be in a real relationship with, why waste my money and time? I really don’t require much. I said "Dude, to be bluntly honest, I don't even look anymore. I think we all have plenty of people in the world that we would be happy with. I thought I was the only one.
Not interested in dating, relationships, or even sex. Now I've been women free for 16 years, if I can only get people to quite saying things like "You're such a great catch, why don't you get a girlfriend? Of those messages are going to get ignored after reading one sentence. Once that happened X number of times, sure, we'd find ways to do things just with one another, but generally at that point we would already have at least the beginning of what I'd consider a committed relationship going.
Men now are demanding more from women other than being a trophy. Most guys that want to get with you are very driven physically to get next to you upon first meeting, and some will press hard in order to do so. Most of what you said is something that I think a lot of readers would have wanted to read. My family knows me better than anyone and tend to have my best interests at heart, so when they tell me that it's not right for me I'm inclined to believe them.
Once you're there, it might be a better time to look up and see who's around you, headed in the same direction. Or worse yet, “Are relationships even for me? Otherwise it would would be called something like an "outing with a friend. People who refuse to do that are basically the lowest scum of the modern dating world. Regardless of where that balance is in your relationship, the disturbingly common practice of reading the texts, emails, Facebook messages, DMs, etc.
Lots of people have formed meaningful lifelong relationships through matchmakers or even arranged marriages. Many men will speak to people that they’re interested in with a softer and more flirtatious tone than they would use with others. Maybe so but from what I seen, heard, and experienced, it takes a LOT more to impress women than just confidence. Maybe you women need to shape up for us to start asking you out again.
As a guy who has seen such men in action and heard them tell me of their one-night stand stories, I can't help but agree that men did, in fact, ruin dating with their hook-up philosophies. Because when we are serious you will know. Best wishes to you, Tess.
Your post is filled with excuses for men, when we all know that the girls of this generation hardly need a lesson in assertiveness. You’ll be pleased to know that you’re not alone when making this assertion.
If you look unapproachable or like you don’t want to be bothered, men are less likely to be inclined to try. In Kyle’s case, it sounds like he was waiting for you to call him. In bullet form, here are some of them. In other words, labels can trip people up because everyone needs something different. Instead, go outside once in a while. Intimate, friendly and makes the watching better. It sounds like I offended you, which was certainly not my intention.
When I decline, I’m generally asked why. When I was young, dumb and immature – I had this belief that relationships, marriage, children and monogamy were an absolute necessity in life. When you take the shotgun approach to dating, of course it's going to be tiresome. When you’ve dated women, THAT’S when you’ll have the right to offer a SUGGESTION, but never, EVER ‘dictate’ anything to a man.
IME, asking how they feel about you before even going on a single date is way too much too soon, and this whole feelings discussion sounds super awkward when you consider that the alternative is a simple, "want to go on a date Friday? If he actually is interested in you then you will know. If he is no longer interested in you, he may stop hugging you, or move away whenever you try to hug him. If nothing has my full commitment in a long term basis, I tend to lean towards relationships.
Women wanted “equality” and no longer wanted men to be the “leader” or the “head” in relationship, and this is what they’ve gotten. Yes, being celibate sucks and for a few years I took anti depressants (not that I was depressed it just reduced my sex drive which I always thought was to much anyway) now I use licorice root, saw palmetto and chase tree extract capsules and without the constant nagging libido I find women less than interesting.
I have heard more horror stories than positive ones from people who pay, register and subscribe to these sites. I just can't imagine trying to fit another person and their schedule into what's going on right now. I just know I am not the right person for you and want you to find that is. I just wanted to get to know her to see if we were a match, but my peers saw her as a competition that ultimately turned me off.
He has a right to privacy and you don't need to know who he is talking to at all times. He just needs to man up and ask you out or just say he isn’t interested anymore. He may also try to avoid physical contact, like a hug or you touching his arm, he is not interested. He may pay for dinner one time, or I may. He primarily addresses the successes and downfalls of love and life. He primarily addresses the successes and downfalls of love and life.
- A better answer would be that it doesn't seem like a good idea for me, at least right now.
- Also considering I don't mind being single I sometimes wonder why I should bother pursuing relationships at all.

I'm not self-pitying, but I'll be honest- I'm the muscular kind of fat but still fat, I'm a high-functioning autistic with problems understanding how flirting and dating even work, my interests are pretty off-putting to people that don't have strong opinions on either carbon offsets or the correct translation of Eamonn an Chnoic, and I don't think my beard is helping matters no matter how well I keep it trimmed. I'm very happy I've found this forum.
