Unhappy online dating

I know the feeling of rejection sucks but just know that you may not be at fault. I really hate being the center of attention and despise getting my picture taken. To be honest I think even if I had professional photos and a well written profile I'd still get a single digit success rate.I like to think it's not, but it's happened literally every single time. I know there are dating site subreddits, like for OKCupid and stuff on here. I've seen people post their profiles and conversations, etc for feedback. To be brutally honest I really think most women just sign up for online dating for a confidence booster and aren't serious about it.

some times when im really distrought and no one will talk to me i go on craigslist and find people to talk to. About a month after the break up, i responded to a craigslist add that said "seduce me" it came from a 45f. I went from almost completely uninterested to full attention.the post was about how no one treated her right, and how she wanted to feel special. I tried to get her name from her but she played really safe.She came in and it was immediately obvious it was her.It was one of my dads old friends, and she came into my work all the time.You could just be talking to the wrong girls (I'm on dating sites but still in love with my ex. I really wish men had some way to get a confidence boost.

It sadly seems we have nothing and the only confidence boost is to fail so much you become numb to all feelings. Successful online dating for me require a strong social support network and a vivacious lifestyle that pulls me out of the rejection In other words, in order for me to start dating and actually enjoy it I need to be enjoying my life in general. i was dumped on the first day of the year by a girl i had invested a lot of emotion into.

I haven't gone on a date in years and haven't had a girlfriend in 5 years. I've gotten so used to being single that it's not even an issue anymore, it's normal or how life is supposed to be.

I don't know if I've accepted fate as being single forever and never finding a perfect person.

She is a pretty cool lady, smokes pot, likes back to the future, drives a supra, but most importantly she is just as lonely and sad as me.

She didnt see me but i saw her an thats all that mattered.

Due to my past relationship being an emotional abusive one I have little to no trust in women.
