Hi all, just wondering if anyone can share their experiences. I’m in my late 30’s and doing the online thing. I’ve gone on quite a lot of dates and seen a few men for 3/4 dates. The last guy I was seeing lasted about 7 weeks. Everything on paper seemed good but somehow there was a connection missing. We both knew it and it ended.
I just can’t seem to meet someone that I feel a connection/strong liking/really looking forward to seeing/have great fun with... Its just a nice person who I can chat to but I don’t feel any excitement. I’m beginning to think it’s me, that I unconsciously self sabotage so something doesn’t work out. I don’t have a lot of relationship experience due to self esteem issues but have done a lot of work on myself and know I’m decent! I feel I’m so ready to meet the right person and hope that then I will feel at ease, then it won’t feel as uncomfortable as I’ve sometimes felt it to be on dates. I’m not a big PDA person but am affectionate in private and I don’t sleep with people I don’t see a long term connection with. Maybe that’s ruining my chances. Maybe that would spark a connection. I don’t know. Maybe I just haven’t met the right person. :-(.
Just wondering if anyone else feels the same as I’m beginning to think like I’m dead inside that I’m not feeling anything for anyone!
