The type of man I’m looking for probably doesn’t exist. At least not yet, so it’s time for me to release myself from online dating again.
I’m not sure why it has taken me so long as the women around me have been been canceling their accounts left and right. Me being o ye faithful had even tried to encourage one friend to hold out until the new year, now understands.
Before you ask what happened I’ll say nothing in particular. There are so many undesirable characteristics being shown in the dating world, that both men AND women are guilty of presenting, I can definitely see why the online dating industry is a multi-million (really billion) dollar industry.
Epic failure on an epic level.
How are many of us coping? We’re settling. I know of SEVERAL women who have become mistresses of men in relationships or may be married. I guess they figured having everything they could want in a man from attraction, steady outings and financial perks from a man (whether he’s taken or not) is better than nothing at all.
Others have settled for the unfulfilling relationships or marriages and they have one or more lovers on the side. I’m not here to judge their lifestyles as they try to have the best of both worlds, but I guess they have to weigh family or financial obligations and aren’t ready to let that person go.
So again, why the opening statement of this post that sounds like the flag of defeat being waved?
Maybe its just that I am tired of the rat race, dealing with the imbalance from the men who try too hard OR the men who don’t try jard enough, aren’t sure of what they want OR the ones who just move a little too slow.
The man who isn’t a project, in need of reconfiguration or some type of overhaul may be out there just not at this moment. The man who says he knows what he wants and knows how to communicate when he meets the woman that is or is NOT what he’s looking for may be out there but he just hasn’t crossed my path yet.
There are a few men in the pipelines right now, but sadly, I have an idea that they may end up in the discarded pile as well.
Do I settle? Say yes to the man who spoke with me once, has been phone stalking me ever since and feels we’ll make a great couple? Do I settle? Should I have continued the outings with Hope as option #2?
Or do I settle for the single life and accept the ongoing advances from Rescue and have a regular fuc* buddy in an ex-boyfriend?
