Are You Impatient When It Comes To Finding Love?
I won’t say that all good things come to those who wait — because honestly, sometimes they don’t. But I will say that a solid, long-lasting relationship won’t come to those who force it. So, are you impatient when it comes to finding love? Read and see.
You call customer service for Tinder
You’ve called customer service for your dating apps to make sure something isn’t wrong with the system because you’re not getting enough matches.
Anytime someone mentions a man
You interject with, “Is he single?” before they’ve even started the story.
You forget to say hi to friends
When you get to a bar or party where you’re meeting friends, you get caught up in a conversation talking to a guy before you even say hi to your friends. In fact, you forgot you were meeting friends there.
When your friends want to go on a girls’ weekend that sounds like a waste of time to you—two whole days where you’re not supposed to talk to guys? Come on.
When guys don’t message you back…
If a guy takes two days to respond to your message online, you end up sending him a message saying, “I can see you’re obviously not in a position to date right now.”
You ask for a review
At the end of first dates you ask your date, “So how do you think this went? I’d say it went pretty well. We have A, B and C in common.”
You interrogate your friends
You ask them what exactly happened on their first date with their new-husband. And then what? And then what exactly did they say in the follow-up phone call? You’re looking for a formula.
When you don’t get a text…
If a guy you like doesn’t text you back, you text everybody else in your phone to say, “Hey I think my texts maybe aren’t working can you text me back to make sure they are?”
You stay home to online date
You’d rather talk to men on an online dating site than at a bar—at least you know what their end game is.
You turn notifications on to the max
You set up your dating apps so that they send you a text message and an email and a Mac desktop note every time someone messages you.
You’re a relationship chameleon
You’ve been a tennis fanatic/Scream music groupie/nudist all in the last six months. Why? Because the guys you were dating were.
You keep a singles calendar
That’s a calendar on which you mark what date an eligible man became single, and what date it’s appropriate after that to ask him out.
You go to palm readers. A lot.
Palm readers, tarot card readers, fortune tellers…you go to those pretty regularly. You’re just hoping one will tell you that you’ll meet the man of your dreams tomorrow.
You tell people you want something serious
You let dates know, within twenty minutes of meeting them, that you’re looking for something serious and if they aren’t this is a WASTE OF TIME!
You gear up for weddings
You know the deal: single men at weddings are listening to the vows be exchanged and thinking, “I want that.” And you’re there, ready, with a $50 blow-out, professionally done makeup, and witty come-on lines you’ve prepared. You start preparing for a wedding earlier than the bride does.
You get into things too fast
When a man you’ve had one date with invites you to go skiing for the weekend and then meet his parents, you go. Every time you do, you learn that those guys are usually clingy and desperate, and things get scary fast and yet, you keep going.
