I need love - July 20th 2017, 02:07 AM

Been trying Tinder. Matched a few but didn't work out. Been talking to this one girl, but she doesn't seem interested, so I won't get my hopes up. I'm so desperate for love. Been waiting 30 years lol

All I can say is keep trying. You'll eventually find the right person for you, and you can't really control when or how you meet. Focus on yourself for the time being and on making yourself happy whilst being single. You won't be ready for a healthy relationship if you can't be happy on your own.

Focused on myself for too long. Too lonely.

Tinder works? I can never get that app to work for me.

Or I can never get a decent photo of myself to use.

Just wanted to say that you can never focus on yourself for too long, and even if you're not lonely you still need to focus on yourself. Self care is super important, same with improving yourself. I've had too many friends fall for someone, then stop working on themselves and they become stuck in life. They stay at their same meager job, don't work on getting any sort of education, they don't make time for friends. I can definitely understand that you want to be in love right now, and that's okay! But never stop keeping yourself as a priority.

When I've been lonely (still am, even though I'm in a relationship), I make plans with friends or pick up a new hobby. It helps me stay occupied and less focused on what I am missing. Tinder does work out for some people, but I have found that most people end up with short hookups or flings. I actually met my boyfriend on OkCupid, but we started out as friends with benefits first and got lucky, I guess. I do think online dating is a great resource if you don't tend to meet too many people while you're out and about. I don't think there's anything wrong with giving it a try, but also just be sure not to think it's your fault that you don't find anyone through it. It doesn't mean you're not attractive or that you're boring. It unfortunately just means you haven't found the right person.


And here you are living, despite it all.

Thanks. I'll still work on myself. I just need a girl by my side. Attractive and boring is subjective.
