Men who give up dating
When I am not writing columns I spend my time in an office which works with and for young people.
Last year we tried a new event for young adults which we called Dating & Degustation.
[Read: Falling in love fast and why you need to slow down] #3 You might be too picky. Maybe you should forget about giving up on love and reevaluate your standards for love. While some people may end up marrying their elementary school crush, you could be forced to wait until your 30s before really finding the person you’re meant to spend your life with.
You could just be too picky and may need to be more open-minded about different types of people. [Read: When does age difference in relationships matter? You might think that you know what you want, but if you keep going for the same type of people and end up heartbroken or unsatisfied with each one, you could be dating the wrong type. You might be a huge pain in the butt, but you’re not unlovable, even if you try to be. I know it’s easy to think this if you’re not finding love, but it’s just not true.
Being single can steer you in the direction of love, even when you’re not looking for it. If you just give up at the first sign of struggle, you’re not going to find love.

The evening consists of a five-course meal in an upmarket hotel.
At the start of each course the male participants change tables according to a preset list, so that each person has the opportunity to have a mini-date with five different people.
Forget all of those fairytale movies about how the guy comes swooping in and rescues his damsel in distress and they fall madly in love and live happy ever after… Nobody ever explained that part of love to me, so I’d like to make sure that others are well informed before diving into a relationship. I blame my cynical ways and nightmarish past relationships for that momentary rant about how much love can be a pain in the butt. Nobody should feel so helpless in their love life that they actually give up on love altogether. In fact, there could be a very attractive, kind, and sweet person out there who’s perfect for you and who is feeling the same way you are: that love sucks and they should just give it up. Contrary to what all those damn romantic comedies may have you believing, love doesn’t happen in a week.
Yet every time this event is on we almost have to send out special invitations to men.
This is just another indicator of the depressing low which dating has reached in Western society.
Within a short space of time the twenty female tickets were gone and we began a waiting list of ten, twenty, thirty extra women.
However, the twenty male tickets were barely moving.#7 There’s nothing wrong with being single for a while.
