I know, I know…it seems a bit counter-intuitive for a dating coach to tell you something as depressing as “dating sucks,” but let’s be honest with ourselves. How many of you women have taken a chance on a guy you’ve barely talked to and agreed to go on a date with him? I’m sure it’s a few of you. After all, we are taught that taking risks can have a great reward! Now, how many of you have taken a chance on this guy, met up with him, and seen some sides to him that were disagreeable and, well, awful?
I’d bet that it’s more than just a few of you.
To be honest, I think that’s what really sucks the most. It’s the fact that you make the bold and confident move to accept a date with a near stranger and give him a chance to click with you. So when a stranger takes advantage of this opportunity – when he uses it to send you unsolicited pictures of his nether regions, when he makes racial slurs on the date, when he comments on your weight – it might feel like you’re being punished for saying yes.
However, I’m here to tell you that good guys are out there.
Think about it. The last thing you want to happen on a date is to sit down and hear him talk about how “all women are the same.” How they all say they “want love, and then they cheat on you with your best friend.” He sounds kind of bitter, right? It also sounds like he isn’t giving you a fair chance. Just like you don’t want him to stereotype women, make sure you aren’t stereotyping all men just because of a few bad eggs you’ve encountered on your dating journey.
Yes, dating sucks, and it will continue to be difficult, but I guarantee that you can meet a guy who is genuinely interested in you and not just sex. You can finally meet a man who is interested in establishing a real connection with you. You just can’t give up hope.
Finally, I want you to think about the factors that make a man attractive. Do you have the factors that make a woman attractive? If you do some self-reflection, are you sure that you are the best version of yourself you can be? If you find that the answer is no, it might be time for some self-growth!

Don’t give up hope, ladies. They say you need to kiss a few frogs in order to find a prince, and I think they might be onto something. You WILL find a man worth your time and energy. Stay strong!
