Feeling down

I'm an attractive 25 year old female. I'm outgoing and outspoken. I wear my heart of my sleeve and people seem to like me pretty well. I've been single for a long time because the last relationship I was in was abusive and left me feeling scarred. I was very hesitant to talk to guys at first because it had been so long since I wasn't taken. The past 6 months or so I've been opening up to men a lot more and have been on various dates which end up going nowhere. Is it just me or are there no more decent people in the world? I get asked ALL the time why I'm single. I feel like being attractive makes it harder to find someone with genuine intentions. I get a lot of proposals for friends with benefits or just random hookups, neither of which I'm particularly interested in. I feel like if I were less attractive maybe guys would see me for who I was rather than what I look like. I feel like no one is interested in getting to know me, and when I do try to have an actual conversation I can tell they're not really listening to me. It's so incredibly frustrating how shallow my generation is. I'm definitely starting to feel a bit jaded.

  • Can't win, huh?! You either look too hard for someone and end up not finding anyone..or you find someone when you're not looking. Don't change who you are, just change how you're going about finding the guy. And enjoy being single. There is nothing wrong with it, and after what you endured you have every right to be selective. Tell your friends you're ready to start dating seriously and sign up with some dating sites, join some groups (running, meet up.com - whatever you enjoy). You may have to kiss a few frogs before someone comes along. But why not enjoy the process.
