What's so special about dating?

It's nice. I'm currently taking a break from dating to work on me. I was in a relationship from ages 18-21 and it ended horribly. Took some time and dated again, and I realized I didnt need that in my life and wasnt the most productive thing to do at the moment. So I'm gonna take some time to be on my own and work things out for myself. Dating is fun. First dates are kinda nerve racking but its a fun experience.


Nooooo, i was looking forward to your cooking. I kid lol.

I used to think dating was a hassle and more trouble than it was worth, but as I get older and see friends having committed relationships and starting families of their own I started having second thoughts. It would be nice to find someone that I could go home to every night and start a family. However I remain undateable. Oh well at least I still have the Megaman games.

Nothing?

It's not meant to be special. Everyone just wants to feel special.

It does become rather stale as you get older though. I think both men and women realize how roundabout the process is after a certain age and it's more of a social obligation. They just want to really settle down. But that's only for people who've been through dating and relationships a couple times.

On that note, I had started working at this Realty company. In my very first week I was being "courted" by a 30-odd year old woman. It was because in my office there was a lot of interoffice relationships, so it was more like claiming the prize first. But she knew what she wanted and didn't want to beat around the bush. I was young, comparatively, and had other mindsets at the time which needed to be made clear. Never did though.

So, dating is different as time goes on. Teens and early twenties date and it's all very flashy. More mature people can share a laugh and joke about dating and on the spot agree to start something up.

This is all from my perspective though. Until I experienced an older woman I thought it was a complicated expensive mess. But that's not necessarily the case. I may be wrong which only proves how much the dating process varies.

I think it's a great question that explores how and why society works. Especially since it's so easy to just hook up nowadays and there are other ways to enjoy life. Also, as they get older, many people feel pressured to date--and see it more as an obligation/expectation rather than a choice.

I think of it as practice or a trial for marriage, but not as serious as an engagement. I see it as a nearly commitment-free courtship stage between acquaintance and betrothal. Once the words "engagement" or "betrothal" are mentioned, people tend to view the couple as all but married, while dating is viewed as much more flexible and allows people to end the relationship without much of the drama that could ensue from canceling an engagement. Dating also allows people to put off or avoid marriage altogether, yet evade the level of scrutiny and criticism that happens if an engagement is stuck in a rut.

Dating for some people can be a hobby. People like interacting with friends or family, so dating has the added benefit of a sexual encounter if you're into that.

And I think people forget even after marriage you still date your spouse. You still have to treat them to a movie or dinner even after the knot is tied.

Dating isn't bad if it is with the right person. You shouldn't rush into one nor look for one actively or you'll just set yourself for disappointment.

Me and my fiance have been together since our senior year of high school and now we are about to graduate college. I would say it gets easier but it doesn't. You always have to think about the other person, and if the relationship is right, you'll grow in many ways you would have never expected. I never thought I could love anybody as much as I do now. It takes time, energy, and commitment and dating helps that grow. Eventually, you'll find yourself wanting that comfort all the time and once it is gone you'll miss the routine of caring for someone for so long. It just goes to show that, unless you are just going for the purely sexual part, the psychological part of a healthy relationship makes us feel amazing. So, when it is gone we search and date for another person to give us that same "high" feeling.

I've only ever dated one guy before my fiance and it only lasted a week because I didn't care for his personality though he was incredibly handsome.

I would wait to date when you feel like you're ready. Everyone has a different time for their turn to flourish. Once you learn to love yourself can you successfully love another human being unconditionally.

So as I've lived my life so far, pretty comfortable as a loner, I've noticed in my friends and on the internet a need for a relationship. Hell, right now on this forum there are threads that are related to this topic, like what someone wants out of a bf/gf. So I must ask for the sake of my curiosity, what makes dating so special thst everyone wants in on it?

Oh and I'm not trying to be edgy or anything like that.


Downside of dating, (as an ex serial dater I can tell you) it's that you have to remember all the details about this new person you're dating, what they like and the awful feeling when you realise this person is just another mismatch (which I usually come to a conclusion after the first date).

The bright and awesome side of dating is that you get to have this amazing partner who will do everything you want to do together, playing online games, watching favourite tv shows, pigging out on junk food, gossiping about the latest news. And someone to cuddle with at the end of the day
