No Happy Medium In The Dating World

Updated on April 24, 2011

How come there's no happy medium in the dating world ? I'm convinced there's only two kinds of people to date. The first kind Ive encountered over and over again is the popular Kling-on: The Kling-on like to rush into relationships, just to basically be in a relationship, for there own selfish reasons of course and they may not even be into you. Kling-ons don't like to be alone, they really don't know you from a can of paint, but want to be around you and up under you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They want to invade your personal space and also invade your every thought and emotion. The Kling-on will rob you and drain you of your physical and mental energy.

Your second kind of person to date is the Laxative. The almighty laxative is so damn lax (relaxed) they want absolutely nothing at all. The laxative gathers what ever they need from you, it may be emotional, physical or mental. What ever the case may be, once the laxative gathers what they need, they fall off the face of the earth almost instantaneously. Phone calls, text messages and emails become extinct, they may return a phone call, text or email at there leisure out of pure boredom, or just to appease you, but we all know its over!

Dating is defeniately no walk in the park these days, thats why its good to take breaks, and be alone for a little while, take interest in your self, get back into old hobbies, or discover new ones find your inner self and then go back out there and deal with this maddness we call dating :)

How is your dating life ?

Do you agree that there are only 2 kinds of people to date: kling-ons & Laxatives

      I've been single with occasional dating for eight years now, and I'm loving it. And after all these years of blissful autonomy, I don't know if I'll ever go back to filtering who I am through a relationship.

      I've come to view relationships as an intrusion into an otherwise contented life. Maybe if relationship didn't come with so much baggage, i.e. expectations and demands, I would feel differently. On the other hand, a relationship with zero expectations isn't a relationship, it's a mere acquaintance.

      But, even with the prospect of perfect harmony between the two extremes, I would still have to be absolutely gaga for a woman to even think about going down that road.

      And that's the problem with "gaga." When you're gaga, you don't think straight and the relationship ends up owning you. And if you're not gaga, you have little, if any, emotional stake in the relationship, which eventually undermines it. So then, I don't want to be gaga and neither do I want to be indifferent.

      Which leaves me in that happy place of single autonomy until my world is rocked by an otherworldly goddess. Well, I'll be 52 this month---and I'm not rich---so, a "goddess" might be a reach. lol

      I'll settle for uncommonly wise and emotionally secure and with a nice balance of independence and companionship. Not holding my breath!

      Excellent, thought provoking hub! Voted up!
