From contrived small talk and picking out an outfit that can change everything he thinks about you, to drinking too much and goodnight kisses, some of us ladies cannot stand the concept of dating. But that doesn’t mean we don’t want some romance in our lives. You’re the girl who cuddles up to her pillow every night, but the thought of sharing the bed with a snoring, space heater of a man is more like a nightmare. Here are the struggles every girl who hates dating, but really wants true love, understands.
1.Your motto about relationships always comes back to Larry David when he said, “A date is an experience you have with another person that makes you appreciate being alone.”
2.Casually dating and hooking up does not make your heart swell. If you’re going to spend that much time courting or being courted by someone, why is there a possibility that it won’t work out at all?
3.Small talk makes you cringe.
4….And all small talk reminds you of is starting high school all over again, or that time you had the stomach flu.
5.When you browse Tinder or other dating sites, you’re trigger-happy when it comes to ruling people out. Has a cat? Left Swipe. Has a boring job? Left Swipe. Has eyes? Left Swipe.
6.Your idea of a romantic date involves Netflix, sans pants.
7.PDA is disgusting, but you’re not about to invite a guy into your home to give him a hug. He’ll obviously expect more if he’s seen your bedroom.
8.You always find a way to cancel plans. Oh, the weather is bad? Let’s reschedule!
9.You’ll secretly watch rom-coms, but no one would dare catch you watching them (and crying a little,) because that just isn’t how the world works!
