I really don’t like dating….

June 15, 2016

I know I haven’t written a post in a while and I really want to start up again, but this post is something I really want to get off my chest.

I’m 19 now and I am at that age where dating gets a little bit more complicated. In this generation, dating is all about being with one person and going on dates with multiple people isn’t something that isn’t often done. And honestly, I see no problem with it. But what I don’t like about it is that people will waste your time and have your hopes up when it comes to “dating”.

Everyone sees’ dating in a different way, but if someone has to go out of their way to show someone how much they’re worth…then dating or going out with that person probably won’t happen.

And nowadays… instead of trying to gain some sort of relationship with someone.. people will just subtweet about you. But they will never try to communicate. So that makes you wonder if that person still likes you or not and I’m the type of person who gets frustrated when I begin to wonder about something and not being able to get any sort of answer.

I really don’t like dating because people base how much they like you off of your social networks or texting. If you don’t respond to a text a certain way… it can tend to be a turn-off. But one of my turn-offs is when someone claims they like you but never make a way or plan to see you and shows they want to get to know you. I am the type of girl who will compromise for someone I like, to make things work or to see where things go.. but the thing about dating people my age.. is that most people are selfish. And don’t get me wrong.. when it comes to dating and relationships, you should be selfish. But there is nothing wrong with compromising.

The reason why I really don’t like dating is because I always put 100% in relationships but the other person does nothing and expects you to do what they want you to do. I’ve been told that I am protective of myself… and honestly, I have the right too. I don’t like to base my future from my past, but not everybody deserves to see and know everything about me and if a guy isn’t willing to just take the time to get to know me and to get me to the point where I’m comfortable with him to open up and release my “protective shield” then they’re the type that just really cares about themselves.

Dating isn’t bad… but I’m really tired of giving guys a chance and they just think that I just have to automatically give them what they want. Guys today want everything handed to them and want things to be easy for them. I don’t mind doing nice things and making a guy feel good (without having to do sexual things) but I’m just tired of it always being me doing things like; texting, trying to make plans, calling and etc just to receive the same and eventually better things. I want to build a relationship..but people want to build them off of social media and texting.

Honestly… I wish I was born in the generation before me. I mean… computers didn’t control them like they do today.

I have no issues with the guys I like or liked… but the same thing keeps happening and this dating thing is getting annoying.
