This is a declaration for anyone who's in a long-term relationship in their 20s and has felt pressure to "see what else is out there." Some people think that being in a relationship in your 20s makes no sense at all.
I have a sense of stability that allows me to focus on my career rather than wasting energy worrying about if that guy will text me back or if I'll ever fall in love.
You are a man, and women like men; turning into a woman would make you less attractive to (most) women. And this is for the simple reason that understanding the female perspective helps you do much better with women, whatever your goal—whether it’s a one-night stand, a friend with benefits, a girlfriend or a wife.
It will help you avoid and resolve arguments, saving you hours of grief.
So if 90% of all men aren’t even first-date worthy, where is the place where you have access to the greatest number of men? I don’t think your negative experience in online dating is silly.
When a man interacts with a woman, his greatest fear is sexual rejection and humiliation.
I've been with my boyfriend for almost three years.
They assume you're wasting away your youth; however, I couldn't disagree more.
And if you concluded that, because of those observations, you weren’t inclined to try online dating again, you’d have plenty of evidence to support yourself. So let’s keep on going with your other misconceptions about online dating: You dated online for 3 months and didn’t find love? You’ve been in love 3 times in 40 years – why would you think you should it in 90 days on JDate? It’s not because you have no integrity or are a congenital liar.
It means you have a deep-seated bias against online dating, so that anything I say which contradicts you is just going to irk you more. Anything to get you outside your comfort zone, to get you to see the world through a different, more empowering lens.
