This doesn't have to do with my own situation. I actually have no idea what my ex's dating status is.
But from observing others, people really do just jump from person to person, and it doesn't really matter if you are the dumper or dumpee, each position does it.
I know a girl who dumped her live-in boyfriend of three years. One week later, she was a dating site and starting dating a new guy. My other friend just got dumped by this guy who she only dated for like a month, but she had been talking about him like he was The One. She's already back out there, dating another guy.
Then there's people like me, who even though there are men who would date me, I have no interest in them. I have never been one to date someone just to have someone around. Unless I REALLY like them, I just don't bother. So therein lays my question: how do people find people they genuinely like and connect with so often? I've never understood people who jump from relationship to relationship, because it seems impossible to find so many people you actually WANT to be with in a meaningful way.
Are MY standard too high? Can some people just not be alone? Standards too low?
I've been truly single for more than four months since my breakup. I've given myself plenty of time, but the truth is -- though I miss a man's company -- at this age, I'm really only looking for the real thing, Love. Still, I know I'm not ready to give my heart away again just yet, so I remain single.
I just don't understand people who are never single or who just have to SOMEONE around all the time.
