I’ve gone dutch or even let the girl pay, but that’s only ever happened once we’ve gone on a decent number of dates or we’re already in an exclusive relationship.

You just aren't interested in being in a relationship that isn't totally right for you. You may feel like it’s not your problem that your unsuitable lover can’t get enough of you. You may very well be one of the lucky ones. You're not alone by any stretch, I love the whole business.

Hi Lisa, I’ve seen many comments and your comments and I’m pretty sure that you did not expect the frustration that you received from a large proportion of men in response to your post. Honestly, the dating part of it isn't bad, imo. I agree with you Lisa.
It is kind of weird for me (male, 25) but as it turns out, I'm really into my work and hobbies right now and women seem unappealing to me. It means compromise that, for some people at certain points in their life, isn't always worth it in the end. It rarely works in real life.

But I've never felt like I was on the outside looking in. But an offer to pay would be nice. But for the first time in my adult life, I'm single and not looking. During my teens I treated this as if it was a rudimentary aspect of being an adult in the 21st century, and the next step in life; ‘the right direction’, if you will.
I'm so super happy with MY life and I'm not the one losing! I've been deliberately rejecting people who do that kind of stuff to me, cause I don't need any extra stupid in my life. I've been through the wringer, and without boring everyone I've had a lot of therapy and "family of origin" counselling and understand myself so well now and forgive myself and others who contributed to where I am now. I've gotten this my whole life.

Feels like an opportunity to impress her and win her over. Flirting would help, but IME, so few of us are actually good at flirting, and it can easily be misinterpreted. For me, at the core is friendship, but it seems we live in a throw-away society, even with friendship.

Ok, I'm a 27 year old male who was involved in a few relationships before, but none of them worked out, and I've been single since 4 years.
We think our lives suck and would rather dwell in that odd comfort self-pity allows for than actually change our lives for the better. We're almost 30, been together for almost 4 years now.

I was thinking about how hard it was for me to learn casual social interaction and basic friendship and professional etiquette and how hard it is to maintain those skills and not slip up. I would rather spare my potential partner from my problems. I'd lived with my parents, and then with roommates, and then with a boyfriend who became a husband.

I love to entertain, travel and be able to do what I want when I want. I really don’t require much.

I know this kind of thing is always said with good intentions, but that doesn't make it any less annoying. I like women and sex as much as the next guy, but does anyone else feel like all the bullshit that comes with finding a girl to date, asking her out, going through the process to be with her is too much effort? I live my life one day at a time, and if I meet a girl that likes me and I like her, then we'll date.
It's really sad when people lose their sense of self in their relationship with their significant other. It's too much hassle and the girls that I meet are usually just not my type at all. It’s an exclusive thing, and once I truly like a girl, I have no problem taking her out on all sorts of dates and doing all kinds of grand romantic gestures for her.
