To be honest, I dislike dating. I've done more of it than seems reasonable for a twenty-year-old, but I chalk that up to efficiency. One of the points in favor of online dating is that it allows me to review many candidates over a short period of time. However, the process is exhausting. First dates are awkward, and sometimes the uncomfortable vibe carries over into the second date. Being inundated with such semi-stilted encounters (albeit through my own maneuvering) is tiresome. What I really want is another relationship, not endless horrible dating.
But I wonder, is my wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am approach the wrong way to seek for a partner? Apparently I'm supposed to be "okay on my own". Then my remarkable contentment and soaring self-esteem will attract a sensitive tousle-haired someone with unrealized dreams--oh wait, I'm describing (500) Days of Summer, and I think we all remember how much irritating nonsense Summer had to put up with. Geez, I'll take Don Jon instead.
Dunno which movie this moment is from, but I like it:
