Dating men is a recipe for disappointment. I mean, in any relationship, there is undoubtedly going to be a moment where the person you're with disappoints you in some way, and most times the relationship can be salvaged.
However, men can be so consistently the absolute worst that we're not even mad that it happens anymore. We're just disappointed.
Not Surprised, But I Did Have High Hopes
The first trip to a man's house is a necessary make or break point. Once you get an idea of how he lives (no bowls, 3-in-1 shampoo, and with no furniture), you have to let him go despite the fact you hit it off.
Men Have One Mediocre Outfit And Think It's Fashion
Ladies, how awful does it feel to know that you spent time perfecting your outfit, fixing your hair, and doing your makeup only for your date to show up in the t-shirt and jeans he pulled off the floor?
Um, Well, Actually...
Just when the date is going well, guys like to show that they are arrogant, rude idiots who think that they're smarter than everyone (but especially women) despite being horrifically wrong. Thank u, next.
The Sheer Hypocrisy Borders On Art
I've read this through from beginning to end five times now, and I wonder exactly how devoid of a sense of self-awareness this guy had to be to write this post and respond like that.
"...I Still Want To Hookup Though"
Men will hook up with you regularly, hang out with you for hours every week, introduce you to his friends, text you every day, and still say they don't want to date you because they still want to hook up with other girls. The worst part is I'm literally never surprised.
Finally, An Original Method Of Disappointing!
Men can get so repetitive with how they're disappointing. I've already had emotional unintelligence and cheating—give me something fresh, like stealing my kidney while I sleep and selling it on the black market.
So Disappointing He Can't Even Notice I'm Disappointed
Men can sometimes be so obtuse that they don't even realize that you're upset with them despite the fact you're giving them angry eyes and threatening to burn their house down.
You're Right, I'm Not Competitive
Just when you're excited to go on a date with a guy you've been talking to, he mentions that he has a girlfriend as if it's no big deal. Disgusting.
The Hot Girl Predicament
I wish this wasn't a horrible fact of life, but alas, it is true. Men build the tiniest hint of an ego and suddenly they think they deserve to treat you like a human garbage can.
...Which Leads Girls To Relationships Like This
The number of sheer goddesses—beautiful, interesting, kind women—who have introduced me to their Shrek-looking boyfriends who think quoting The Office is the equivalent to having a sense of humor is shocking and appalling.
Men Use The "Logic Over Everything" Method
I don't know why men equate emotions with being irrational when they're the ones who punch holes in the wall the second life doesn't go their way. Meanwhile, you just want him to stop gaslighting you.
Waste Her Time 2019/Probably Until The Earth Dies
The number of times I have downloaded Tinder/Hinge/Bumble, used it for about a week, and then deleted it is way too high. I always hope that things might be better with each download, but it is the same filth, just recycled.
I Want To Tattoo "Make Like Your Headline And Recede" On My Body
Men will tell you that they've changed and that they miss you, and then continue to perform the same behaviors that made you break up with them. Bless her for burning him this hard.
My Standards Are So Low Now
Men, can you even comprehend how tragic women's dating lives are that we are thankful for a man who understands basic grammar and spelling in his first language? We are broken.
Like, Seriously. We Aren't Asking For Much
When women tell me about why the new guy they're seeing is so great compared to their past significant others, it makes me sad that the bar is so low. But, I mean, I get it.
Where Is The Lie Though?
Men will have six Natty Lights and think that they should unload all of their problematic past onto you without prompting and think that they're deep. Sir, get a therapist and never speak to a woman again!
The Most Fun Guessing Game!
It may not come out immediately, or might need a few dates to reveal itself, but more often than not the guy you're seeing has some major personality defect that will come to the surface. Good luck, sis.
Jen, I Have Some Bad News For You...
I remember when I was young and hopeful before experience turned me into a jaded, distrustful woman. Maybe I wouldn't have questioned that behavior at 17, but a man could never pull that crap on me now.
Being! Objectified! Is! The! Worst!
It doesn't matter how rich of a tapestry you paint of yourself to the man you're dating or hooking up with, he still will be like, "aw I'm sorry you're so sad maybe sending me a picture where you aren't wearing clothes will help!"
Eventually, We Just Give In To It
We've been disappointed so many times that we may actually believe that it's inevitable. You're going to ruin my life? It's fine, it's nothing I haven't managed before. Let's go, baby.
