Why am i not dating anyone
Knowing that people to talk about sex and relationships, I first turned to my 1,600 Facebook friends and followers for their thoughts.
I asked, “Do you think normatively attractive people fare better [in dating] overall?
So here comes the inevitable next question: I swear I am not just fishing for compliments. As a staff writer at Upworthy on the sex and relationships beat (#lolsob), I get some (read: many) unsolicited pitches about different dating apps, sites, services, etc.
I downloaded the app immediately, hopeful that I’d at least get one date out of it.
Had I finally found an app where men would be held accountable for their actions?
So when I had a chance to do one of my favorite things a few days after downloading the app — put on makeup, dress up, and attend a gala with food and an open bar — I couldn’t do it. I was really looking forward to attending the gala — I even rented two dresses in preparation. This gap between my thoughts about myself and reality could explain why — even at my most self-assured — I fail to attract potential mates.
People often say that I must be single simply because I am just not when I leave the house, but I don’t believe that’s my problem.
