Here are four top tips for avoiding dating burnout: I’m a big believer in putting yourself out there to maximise your chances of meeting the right person.At the same time, if you start to spend hours a day messaging people online or you organise too many dates in the same week, dating burnout is inevitable.You get all excited only to find the person not as attractive as you hoped you would, you find zero chemistry and/or the conversation sucks.Or you date someone for three dates or even a few months only to discover they don’t want a relationship (or you don’t want a relationship with them).I know your advice is to keep texting brief and I agree but what if it seems they take that as a sign that you’re not interested? He only turned it around on you because he wasn’t going to say, “Hey, I’m not all that interested.” He put you on the defensive so that he didn’t seem like the bad guy.Red flag and move on or is this what dating has become? It’s like the dude from yesterday’s letter who sent a text accusing the woman of leaving the bar and not coming back.
If you neglect your own needs you won’t have the energy that you need to have good dates.
Love makes the world go ‘round and you’re certainly not going to spend the rest of your life alone.
Starting over is daunting, but what choice do you have?
He set me some messages and I replied fairly quickly and we were exchanging messages like they were texts. I said something about how it’s easier to talk in real life and he said “we should meet for a drink then” and so I gave him my number and the texting continued with no plans to meet.
I was all set up to go on a date next week with a guy I met on ok Cupid.
