Why I hate Dating
I’ve been watching the phone all night. Jumping each time it rings. Hoping that it’s a certain person calling. Wondering why when guys say they’ll call they don’t. Wondering, when I’ll get to the point where I’ll be in a relationship and not have the deal with these crazy rituals and rules. Wondering why this whole thing has to be so complicated.

Will a guy that loves a chase ever turn out to be what you want? How long do you have to pretend not to care before they start to get interested? Has anyone ever heard of a relationship that developed after one person pretended not to be interested in the other?!???
I don’t think it works like that- We all want what we can’t have, but that doesn’t mean it will ever make us happy.
Dating sucks. Do yourself a favor and make an effort to like the ones that like you back.

I find that with the 6 guys I’ve dated in the past 3 months (I’ve been single for 4), 5 of them called (5 of which I wasn’t interested in) and 1 of them didn’t (the 1 that got away – sigh).
I think there’s something to be said for that. Guys have this radar that can detect if a woman likes him enough to wait for his call. If a woman is eager, there’s no challenge for them; and they looove a challenge.
Not to say that I didn’t fail this test, since I haven’t heard from that brillant, funny, tall, gorgeous and mature ‘1’.
But I think that there’s defintely a lesson to be learned here.
Boys like the chase, and if they feel that there isn’t one, they look elsewhere.

Ye guys suck. They really do! I find myself waiting for calls too. What I do now is just date a bunch of guys at the same time and one of them is boudn to call that day, lol. And then you are busy and you dont end up driving yourself crazy, or them crazy anyways. But what tends to happen is the one that plays the hardest to get is the one I end up only wanting. Yup its confirmed dating sucks if you’re looking for more than just weekend flings!

Even in a relationship there’s the waiting and the wondering and the hoping and the sitting by the phone. I find myself wondering if I should call – or if I should wait to see if he calls. I’m so used to instant gratification in that respect – to living with my lover rather than apart from him – that this change is, well, a big adjustment.

I hate when you get the guys that don’t like to call people. If they don’t call within 24 hours of when they said they would, then I’d hang it up. “I’m busy”, doesn’t cut it. We’re all busy dammit.
SSoooooo…where did you meet mr. wonderful anyway? What’s the 411?

I find that the phone always rings when I least want it too. I’ll be “indisposed” in the bathroom or carrying heavy objects or trying to run out the door because I’m already a half hour late.
Maybe if you make plans, stay at the house until you’re supposed to be there and then carry a box of bricks with you into the lav? It’ll ring off the hook.
I can’t guarantee it will be who you want it to be, but it will definately be someone.

But think of all the small sparks of excitement you get whenever that phone DOES ring…huh?
Ok, I know. It sucks. If he doesn’t call you within three days of him saying he will, it’s time to move on. That’s just lack of respect.

Uh getting into a relationship is just the start of the rituals and rules. I know because I’m breaking rule number one which is never talk about our rituals or something to that effect. I’m never really sure what rules are in effect on what days.
