Never quite good enough
After keeping myself out of the dating pool for over three years due to betrayal and pain of a previous relationship, I finally put my toe back in. I dated a couple of different guys, and really connected with one. We went on several dates, and seemed to be getting serious...and then he said he met someone else.
This is all mundane, and stuff everyone goes through, but it brings back all my feelings of hopelessness, embarrassment, and never being good enough. I don't understand why people love dating, I HATE everything about it, because it makes me hate myself.
