And as someone who prides herself on being an independent woman who doesn’t need a man, that makes me feel like shit.But my inner voice starts to whisper, “You are going to die alone” whenever a friend finds a new relationship, I get an invitation to another wedding, or another family member gets pregnant.
It’s a difficult question, particularly for those of us in the casual dating world.
I’ve also said that those kind of friends are not for the faint of heart and it can get complicated. Well, feelings develop on one side perhaps, or worse, the farmer gets so used to the sweet milk that he gets for free that he doesn’t bother buying the cow because the cow is giving it for free …
But since I don’t know what a guy’s situation is — whether he’s single, whether he’s interested in dating someone, whether he’s even interested in me — I have a hard time transitioning those interactions into meaningful conversations.
So, I go back to the dating apps, because at least there I know the guys are interested in some kind of interaction.
So, I deleted all of my apps for six months when I was 26, and enjoyed the idea of meeting people in the real world.
