Welcome back to work guys (and lockdown for England and Scotland!) Look, we know that this is not how we wanted to start the new year, but we got through it last year and we can do it again. Don’t forget to check in on friends during this time. Despite it being a new year, a lot of people definitely might not be as ready to take things on and that’s ok. It’s good to take a break, even in dating. In fact, you might not even know you need one. Let us help you figure that out. Here are 4 signs you’ve been hit by dating fatigue…
Have you ever found yourself at the point where you’re so over carrying all the chat or always being the one to come up with date ideas? Well, you might be feeling dating fatigue. This is something that your dates might pick up on as well. You might be coming across as aloof or uninterested. Maybe you’re no longer attempting to ask questions or engage in conversations. When you’re getting to the point of just going through the motions for the sake of it, maybe take a break and recharge. Once you’ve taken some time away and are ready to come back, check out CLiKD.
If you feel like you’ve been trying to date and not
getting anywhere or meeting anyone with real
potential, it can be incredibly discouraging
It’s common to, at times, feel like constantly dating is the definition of insanity. After all, you’re more or less doing the same thing and expecting the different results. If you feel like you’ve been trying to date and not getting anywhere or meeting anyone with real potential, it can be incredibly discouraging and disheartening. If you’re constantly pretty vocal about your disappointment and find that all of your conversations are about how crappy your dating life is, then the dating fatigue is real.
One thing that is consistent in rom coms is that the protagonist usually starts of cynical and disillusioned about love, before they magically meet the one while prettily tripping over their own feet or something. Well, this is real life so things aren’t always tied up in a pretty bow. Instead being cynical isn’t a ‘cute’ character flaw, it’s something that comes with various bad dating experiences that makes you lose faith in people. It can leave you drained and already anticipating that all future dates will be the same or worse. If this is the case, the dating fatigue has arrived.
Maybe the idea of having to come up with unique
date ideas feels too overwhelming to you or you just
don’t see the point of doing something different,
because all dates end the same and don’t go anywhere.
When all your dates are starting to look the same. Same bar, coffee shop or restaurant and there’s never any new ideas for mixing it up, then it’s likely you can’t be bothered to. Maybe the idea of having to come up with unique date ideas feels too overwhelming to you or you just don’t see the point of doing something different, because all dates end the same and don’t go anywhere. Either way, this is one of the biggest signs of dating fatigue. When you can’t even muster up the effort to do anything specific for your dates.
So, there you have it! 4 signs you’ve been hit by dating fatigue. Our recommendation if you’re feeling this way is to take a break. Let 2021 be the year we all prioritise our self-care. You’ll return to the dating game stronger than ever, don’t worry!
