Why dating is wrong
I was numb to new prospects, and unsure what I was looking for.
For me, dating has always been about building a long-term connection—one that I had never been able sustain.
I always walked away feeling the weight of all the raw edges inside my body; wounds he’d cut open months before, aching and not yet healed.
I let the pain sit inside me for a night, and then I’d try to block out all feeling the next morning.
I’ve thought of that many times before about my exes. It’s like we looked for each other for the wrong reasons or suffered some bad karma. It makes you wonder why you do stupid shit in the past.
It makes you cringe, laugh and make that face when you take a hard shit. And the thing is, the signs back then were always so obvious. It wasn’t like we had this repertoire going on where we could swear at each other for fun.
In the end, I hugged him goodbye and thanked him for dinner.
When he texted me the following day, I told him that, although he was lovely, it was probably best we went our separate ways.

That’s the blunt truth that you’re dating the wrong person. But one day if you find yourself unhappy with all the changes you made in yourself, then I think you’re dating the wrong person.
Love is a god damn feeling that’s going to make you shout a resounding yes all the time. Your partner should elevate your intrinsic awesomeness so that you can say, “I’ve truly become a better person.” Not the other way around.
But if fucking twenty friends are adamant on the fact that your relationship is just bad, it’s time to listen.
Sorry, but answers like, “Maybe…”, “Yes, but…”, “I’m not sure right now” and “I’d be if she…” don’t cut it.
