Entering the workforce in one of the more turbulent economic times in our nation's history meant I would have to work harder to break into the communications industry.
Moving out of my parents house would mean learning how to live on a strict budget, resulting in many ramen noodle dinners the week before payday. As a single, straight female living in a metropolitan neighborhood, one would think that it would be fairly simple to meet men.
I was talking to a group of my girlfriends the other day and the topic of dating came up. No, neither had entered into a relationship and was now deleting their apps because their exclusive relationship required it, but rather, they were deleting their apps because they were talking to too many men, going on too many uneventful first dates, sending out too many messages only to receive radio silence, and getting too many “Sups” from uninspired suitors.
These women were deleting their dating apps because they were tired.
Although I am an introvert and would rather spend time with my cat while watching Netflix, I ventured out of my comfort zone and joined a co-ed softball league and registered for a comedy class. Most of the guys were taken, while the others showed zero interest in my lame attempts to flirt.

Actually, can I just have everything Ive ever left here? An ex-girlfriend used to ask me to come over and hang out, but by the time Id made the 20 minute drive, shed be asleep. I fall asleep on the couch sometimes, but Ive never done it in the middle of an activity. Am I just so boring that I can put people into a trance-like sleep with the drone of my voice? At first I was annoyed, but I was young enough that I came to accept it.
When relationships are going south, there's usually some warning sign.
If your boyfriend is starting to feel less than enthralled about being with you, he probably won't come out and say so right away.
Needing someone to corroborate my lifetime of tired women, I called Dr.
