If you are or have been single for quite some time then you know how strange and terrifying online dating can be. As a person who has been single for quite some time, I can tell you that I am sick and tired of the artificiality of virtual relationships. I miss the good old days when you would meet someone you like at school or work and every day you would be excited to see them and when you would eventually go out, your heart would flutter because you knew you like this person so so much.

With online dating, all of this excitement is gone. You talk to someone and you think you might have some things in common but when you go out it is stressful because it is basically a blind date. And then once you see each other you usually know in a matter of seconds if there is a spark or not. Then you drive home, disappointed and wondering if you will ever find your person.

Expectations

When we are searching for that one person with whom we want to build our life with we have a lot of expectations and a certain vision of them in our mind. But with the arrival of the new age of dating and online dating apps, it has become harder to find someone genuine. A lot of people hide behind a nice facade they build for you but in the end, it can all be made up and none of it can be true.

Ghosting

Another online dating phenomenon is called “Ghosting”. You never heard about it? Well let’s say you are talking to someone online but you feel like you are not interested anymore in putting your effort into this. So instead of telling the truth, you ignore the person. Without so much of a word of explanation or reason. This can be very hurtful to the other person as he never gets the closure he needs to move on. Believe it or not, I have heard stories where people ghost their long-term partners or even spouses!

Where Are The Genuine People At?

Do you ever wonder where did genuineness go? Along with compassion and kindness? Did they all take a well-deserved vacation together? Well, maybe. Sometimes I am still shocked by some people and their cruelty, their lack of compassion or understanding of other people’s feelings. But then I remember my values and that I will always believe and look for good and kindness in people.

If you are single and you feel like you will never find that one special person – do not despair. Your soulmate is out there and one day your paths will cross and you will understand why you had to go through all this heartache. There is always hope. In the meantime – work on yourself!
