The Actual Worst

Here's the thing. Dating sucks. 
And not in the "boys are dumb, don't make this so complicated" way, but in an actual "this sucks, I hate it more than I hate anything" sort of way.

*And this isn't to say this is about one experience or about every experience. Just a generalization.*

I hate the games and the little things involved in making something happen. 

How one or both parties look way too far into things. "Oh! We both like this band!? Clearly we're meant to be!"

And the texting! I hate the texting. 
The trying too hard, the exaggerations about what you were doing at the time you received said text. 
The same old get to know you questions every single time. 
The over-the-top emoticons. 
The too-many compliments that you run out of ways to respond to. 

I hate first dates. 
And the end of first dates. 
And the after first dates. 

Why can't we just jump to the end? Skip the in-between please. 

Or hey, maybe it's different when both sides are equally interested...? 
Like then the texting and the questions and the everything is cute?
I forget what that's like. 


  1. I'm with you, Meg. I just want to "skip to the good part".

  2. I agree 100%! If you find a way, let me know! :)

  3. I 100% agree with everything in this!

  4. I once read a story in seminary that I would often look back and reflect upon when I went through times like this, time I just wanted to be over. But this story forever changed how I view these types of situations.

    Give it a read if you like, you may have already heard of the story, but I love it :) (a 5-7 min read)

  5. Oh Meg! if only you knew!!! That is the good part!


Show some love and leave your thoughts!
