Why i gave up dating personal statement for online dating
I wanted to hold on to him but I had to face the fact that we were just not a good match. I didn’t think (and I still don’t) that “having it all together” was a determining factor of whether someone has good character and a heart of gold.
From the moment I met Whodini we had an instant connection.
It’s not easy but I look at my encounters as learning experiences.
Getting over these men has shown me that there’s strength in forgiving people that aren’t even sorry.
But when it would be time for us to meet up he would cancel. He re-emerged with an apology after a week and yet another excuse as to why he had been sending me to voicemail.
I always accepted the excuses he gave me because they seemed legit. He promised to never do it again, but a few weeks after we finally met up he disappeared again. He tried to find his way back into my heart but I dismissed him. When I finally did speak to him and he decided to tell me why he cut me off, it didn’t ease the pain.
At first I loved his dominant personality and how he took charge.
He knew a few trades, had a degree and a few certifications under his belt so I felt like we were equally yoked.
Whether I asked him about the music he liked or his plans for the weekend, I was asking for too much information.Our conversations were agreeable but they would soon turn apathetic.His ignorance began to outshine his charm after a few months.When I disclosed to him that I was a therapist that also sought her own therapy, he told me that Black people do not go to therapy and that anyone that goes is weak.During another conversation we were discussing where we would like to move when we get our own apartments.
Many millennials turn to dating apps for “situation-ships” but since the Plenty of Fish (POF) app was advertised to be for more than a hook-up, I looked forward to what was coming my way.
