    Am I chasing a pipe dream?

    I have had the most horrible luck with dating/romance. I will admit it took me a long time t get comfortable in my skin. I have been hoping that there was somebody out there who was looking for something meaningful like I was was. I’m not a drinker,smoker, into drugs, or hooking up. I’ve done the club thing and all of the superficial non-sense. So my question is,does dating/romance exist anymore? Granted I’m not magazine cover material. But I don’t think I’m that hideous either. I tried to dumb down and run with the masses but that life is not me at all!! When a guy does show a little interest, like clockwork, they are always married,”straight/DL”, or curious. Once again that’s not going to work for me. On the other hand I have a debilitating fear of making the first move. It’s not rejection I fear…..I’m used to that, Its making a move on the wrong type of person and it escalating into some drama. I’m getting too old for this shy game of cat and mouse. Somebody please advise.

    Maybe you’re not looking in the right places. Even on sites like grindr there are guys who are looking for a long term commitment. Honestly, you should never lower your standards for anyone. I make it clear that I’m not looking for a hookup and want something substantive and most guys are understanding and some even concur and want to go on a date and etc….

    I agree with HeAboutToLoseM. You might not be looking in the right places. It might be a bit harder to find like minded guys in terms of what type of relationship you want but need to keep on trying!!!’
