Imagine, you’re a 22 year old single woman looking for love, but you can’t seem to find it because love somehow always wins at eluding you. Or maybe, you’re just looking in all the wrong places.
Let’s face it. Most men in the age group (18 – 28) are just looking to hook up and if you’re a young woman expecting anything more than that, you probably will find yourself explaining “Why Modern Dating Makes Me Want To Punch Myself In the Throat.”
This is exactly what Melissa Moeller explains below.
” As a 22-year-old single woman I’m pretty much living in the thickest part of the modern hookup culture – perfecting the art of getting the right guy to buy you a drink at a bar, crafting the perfect response to a text to make you seem just interested enough, taking the proper five seconds to adequately judge a person and determine whether or not to swipe left or right on Tinder. That’s the world I live in now and I have to confess: I hate it with every fiber of my being.” –Melissa Moeller
Everything is so damn complicated. Nobody asks you out on a date; they just ask you to hang out – so after you do, you can spend the next three days that you’re supposed to be ignoring them wondering exactly what it meant.
If you’re feeling like dating has got you feeling down here are a few things to keep in mind:
It’s not about you. When someone rejects you or doesn’t treat you in a manner that you approve of, always remember they choose to act this way. Their behavior doesn’t have anything to do with you. If someone doesn’t see that you’re perfect and worthy of love, just the way you are. then give that person marching orders and send them on their way.
Rejection is going to happen and it’s going to be frustrating to the point you may just want to punch yourself in the throat. But think about it this way. But sometimes, rejection could be a blessing in disguise. Maybe, in the order of things, the other person is doing you a favor by telling you, “Hey, don’t waste any time on me. I’m not the right person for you.” Allow rejection to guide you, instead of holding you back. – TheBolde.com
