I find dating to be pretty tough, and meeting eligible women even tougher. The best thing to do is just be involved with what you love, and have good qualities. At some point you WILL find someone.

Dating can be extremely time consuming, frustrating, maddening at times, and can take a toll on your finances. And being just a tightwad, I meet with very few, if any, that would enjoy a first date at a Swap Meet!

I tell people I don't date all the time, but I'm lying. I just hate prying questions and don't want to reveal anymore than I like to volunteer.

Just curious about some of the answers out there.

If you really don't care to date, say maybe REALLY focused on a career, like becoming the best jazz pianist ever or something, then I think you shouldn't.

But if you don't date because you've been rejected a lot or were bitter from your last relationship or are socially awkward, and have convinced yourself that you're better off without dating and have settled into a complacent mode, I think you should go at it.

Many years may pass and then you'll be sorry that you weren't more aggressive and building more experience back then.

I know I am...

I know quite a few people that don't date. The men I know don't because they don't want a woman. Too much trouble. The one woman I know doesn't date because in over 4 years of being a men's barber, she's never been asked out.

Im 37 and havent dated in few years. I have been in 3 serious long term relationships in my 20s, and ultimately have been cheated on or lied to by all 3, at which point i immediately moved on. Everyone has a bad experience dating, here or there and those 3 bad relationships arent any part of the reason im not dating. Let me be frank here and try to keep this pg13, i simply dont believe that what a girl can do for me versus what i can do for myself is worth the hassle. I am also a non-conformist and find the ideas that everyone needs to be in a relationship or married with kids, or else they cant find happiness, very demeaning to all humanity.
