Your Happiness Depends On It: 4 Times You Need To Find Other Habits Besides Dating


Dating may ultimately be the reason you have not found love and may be the leading cause to your unhappiness. I know this might not make sense, but let me explain.

‘Dating’ today is a lot different than what it once was. The chances of you meeting someone at the bar are pretty slim because communication with strangers has run dry and nobody really wants to tell their friends and family that they met someone on Tinder. So we either just get straight to the point and get to the dirty talk with potential of meeting up, or we act like we are interested in a relationship with a person just to get farther with them with the intent to just drop them once we get what we want.

Call me crazy, but I don’t want any of those and I am tired of dealing with this when I should be focused on other things that are actually relevant to my life. It seems to be that my life manages to circle almost every month and when I am bored, I find myself downloading numerous dating apps or putting myself out there to people who don’t deserve to hear my voice. Finding myself having many morning of old make up strolls down the city streets, stopping in the nearest Dunkin’ Donuts with glasses on my face, questioning my own sanity.

Here are 4 different instances when you should give up dating and pick up another hobby, because your happiness, love and life depend on it.

You’re tired.

Trust me, I am a weekend warrior. I have danced until the next morning and I have watched hundreds of sun rises and sun sets. If you find yourself being tired day in and day out, it’s time to give up your partying ways, including dating. Sometimes, you just need a break from it all and going out of your way for a date that you’re not even that into is absolutely not worth your beauty sleep.

You don’t have any free time.

No matter what age you are, you should be keeping busy, especially if you are single. But dating should not be taking up all of your “free time”. You need to look at your life and look at what you need to get accomplished each week. If you find yourself moving around extra work time, gym time or family and friend time, you shouldn’t be going on that date. Don’t go out of your way for someone you barely know, if they are worth it, they will stick around.

You don’t feel confident.

I am going through this little “mid life crisis” because I feel that I look like sh*t and don’t have sh*t together. I would like to tell myself that this is how everyone feels, but it’s not. So why am I putting myself out there to date when including myself realizes that people are attracted to confidence- so why would anyone go for me right now? If you don’t feel wonderful about yourself, why would anyone else?

You are cynical.

Sometimes it’s you, sometimes it’s them, either way- you have been dating and you are still single. You are discouraged because you actually thought the date went well but apparently they did not. Or maybe everything went well over text, but in person it was the complete opposite. When you feel negative about every situation you are getting into, it’s time to throw away being a pessimist and figure out how to get right, so you can meet Mr. Right.
