I quit dating
I don't mean to exclude men but this is my experience)So when I entered the dating world at 14/15 - I found myself getting cheated on often or simply just perpetually feeling like I'm not good enough for anyone I date. I have a lot of friends (a plus of being an unattractive girl...
you have tons of guy friends and they don't try to bang you which is nice because I have really great friendships with my male friends), a good career ahead, a lot of hobbies.
But to be honest, I noticed my pretty friends got treated a whole lot better by their boyfriends.
Me, they like my personality but I'm not beautiful so I'm always treated like the guy friend in a girl's body with benefits.
I'm tall, skinny and my face is just not really.. I never understood the whole cat calling complaint until I actually went out in about with my girlfriends and watched THEM get catcalled.
I'm so sorry to be the one to break it to you, but someone had to.
Call me crazy, but I don't think anyone should spend more than an hour per day, tops, on dating-related swiping, stalking or messaging. If you've gone on one too many dates, take a break.
I spent years and years of my life being haunted by this unrealistic beauty expectations and struggling with my self image. I'm cleaning out my closet of all the clothes I wasted money on to try to fulfill an image of a beautiful woman I could never be. I don't feel ashamed for dressing comfortably anymore. Not being above average in terms of beauty has its perks too. So I don't know how much of it was my decision!
But now that I'm actually taking some real time to be single, which I never did before (I hopped boyfriend to boyfriend to fill in the holes of my self-esteem problems, especially the ones who cheated on me)I feel at peace. I don't feel ashamed of myself for being born the way I am anymore. Now I don't feel like my value is based on my appearance. As a guy a little below average in that department I can tell you its good because the people that give me attention don't do it because "I'm hot", just because they really enjoy my company and who I am. ) But, anyway I have just let go of the pressure that I someone in my life as a partner, I also had serious self-esteem issues due to the fact that no woman ever showed any interest in me in my entire life, coupled with the fact that I was constantly being pressured by on when I was going to get a girlfriend it really did a number on me and caused a great deal of pain.
