There I said it. It’s awkward, uncomfortable and you have to be so vulnerable with the person. Well, you have to be vulnerable when you end up getting married or in a committed relationship, but it’s not as crucial as at the beginning.
I remember going on dates and wondering if the guy liked me or not.
I went on 2 dates with this guy – whom I met online—and at the end of the second date, he gave me a big, sloppy kiss. It was one of the most disgusting kisses I’ve ever gotten. But, nothing takes the cake more than this guy who kissed me after our first date.
He leaned in when I didn’t want it, but I felt sorry for him, so I also leaned in too.
Come to find out, he kissed like a fish.
You see, I’m happy I no longer have to date because it’s too confusing. Also, most guys don’t know how to plan things anymore. They don’t try anymore. They just want to get you in bed and that’s one of their number one priorities.
Now, this does not pertain to every guy, but I’d say tons of guys have this mentality.
Some guys will leave it to you to plan something.
“What should we do?” Um, if you really care, you’d set something up, not me.
I got lucky and had a guy who thought outside the box and wanted to workout and then go out to lunch.
And, this guy ended up proposing to me.
Therefore, I’m so happy that I no longer have to date because I hated the following: waiting for the guy to text me, trying to interpret what he means, wondering when he’ll ask me to be his girl, just thinking back to the question, “what are we” makes me cringe.
I don’t miss telling my friends that I’m “talking” with a guy or I’m waiting for him to text me back after our amazing first date. I also don’t miss having my friends and family awkwardly meet him and tell me what they think. Additionally, I really don’t miss my mother judging every guy I bring home and “evaluating” him.
I’m sorry for the girls who are in this boat.
There are some girls who love dating, but that’s just not me. I’ve always needed a title. I didn’t want to just see a guy for months on end without making it official. But, for some girls that’s okay. And, that might be fine, but that’s not my lifestyle.
In a world with lots of douchebags, I’m just glad I no longer have to date.
