I keep kissing frogs, I want my prince already. I am so sick of dating, what do I do? Every time I get my hopes up they are shattered by reality. I keep watching my friends hook up with someone, get married; some have even been divorced and about to be married again. What about me..help!
Girl, you are not alone. But there are other ways to look at your current situation. For example, you could be in a loveless relationship. There are people who are married or in long term relationships who can’t stand each other. They stay together for the kids, due to finances, or out of fear. Would you rather be in that position?. The grass is always greener on the other side. Your green side is that you have the world of opportunity to find exactly what you are looking for in a partner.
As for you getting your hopes shattered, there will be plenty of near miss men out there. Instead of hoping for anything while you are dating, just enjoy the ride. Stay focused on what you want in a partner, but have fun. Learn to laugh at some of the experiences that you have. Just don’t let it frustrate you into settling or staying home with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s (though they are two delicious men). What you have to remember is, it just takes one. The one that you seek is seeking you, so you keep your head up and heart open for that day!
