    Lightbulb What's the most frustrating part of dating for you?

    Hey guys,

    I'm curious what for you is the most frustrating part of dating or the part that you have the most problems with?

    Also from a girl's perspective, what's the part that annoys you or you hate that guys do(or don't do) during dating, or at a first date, or even when they approach you?

    For me the biggest problem in dating was always approaching a girl during the day. I would always get very nervous because I thought of a million things that could go wrong or that I would run out of things to say so I would talk myself out of it.

    Now my biggest is long term relationships and knowing exactly what I actually want in a long term relationship and what type of girl I'd like to be with.

    Would love to know what everyone else is dealing with and what you find difficult.

    Thanks guys!

    For men, it's usually about finding someone interesting in wanting to go out on a date with. With OLD, there are many fake, deceptive,... profiles. So, it's about getting to "first base". Once I'm on an actual date, things are fine.

    For me, I don't like the whole exercise of dating!
    I am good on my own, I am good in (good) relationship.
    But the whole getting dressed and courting thing is exhausting.

    And for what? . .I ask myself often.
    Most don't come to fruition for no other reason then not everyone is the right one.

    But getting between here and there is just a whole lot of work at times.
    Often times Netflix or dinner with a good friend is just more appealing.

    I hate all the fake profiles, and when you chat to a girl they seem interested & give you their number then go cold after a few days....

    The most frustrating was the needle in a haystack feeling -I dated to find someone to marry and start a family with (once I was in my late teens/early 20s) and I found it frustrating to have all the dead ends - given all the time/effort I put into it.

    You can say that again.

    Sometimes, even staying home and reading an interesting book is more appealing!

    I read your questions again ~

    `A woman loves a man with a plan'
    I love this saying.

    Because of other experiences (not enough room) I get frustrated if a man asks me on a date and doesn't have some sort of plan. Anything!

    Please don't pick me up for date and ask me what I want to do and then in turn I end up having to orchestrate it.
    If I invite you out, I promise I will have a plan. Please do the same

    I'm married now, but the two things that really bothered me were:

    1. People playing games. I am a pretty straightforward person, don't make me guess how you feel about me.

    2. Guys always want sex on the first date. If that is what you're looking for, go on Fling or another site for that purpose. I never did the online dating thing so I am referring to going on dates with guys that I already knew from real life. And I'm not a prude, if the stars align and we both want something to happen, great! But it seems like so many guys would go on a date simply to get laid, they didn't want to put any work into the relationship first.

    I get frustrated with guys who can't or won't make conversation. They expect to be asked all the questions and don't reciprocate or help continue conversation at all.

    I get frustrated because I am picky.
    It is difficult for me to really connect.
    I need that spark, that attraction, that feel good high lol

    And it's rare for anyone to actually be able to ignite that in me.
    If they do, I can lose my attraction easily.
    Partly because I am a single mom with a daughter, so I am quite cautious.

    In my age group most everyone has baggage. When they speak of a crazy ex, I'm done.
    I don't want to be involved in any drama! They have a criminal history, done.
    They drink more than socially, done. Drugs. Done. Unmotivated, done. Too many exe's, done.
    Too many marraiges that ended, done. Hop from job to job, done. My list goes on..... Lol 😜
