Ready to give up on dating the definition of dating

When you land yourself a date, you have the opportunity to embrace new experiences.

When you’re single and seeking, you have the opportunity to meet new people.

Silence is probably the best response, but you can imagine filling the screen with middle finger emojis, if you like.

But I got the feeling that you were beginning to think I didn’t exist. And I wanted to let you know that while I might be as elusive as a unicorn grazing in a field of four-leaf clovers, I’m close. Have a great weekend and come back on Monday for a juicy reader question from a woman who is ready to toss in the towel on men.

Become that person and you’ll attract that person as well.

You're really supposed to get up, get dressed, and go out to meet someone you might not even like? If someone tells you to "put yourself out there" one more time... Luckily, dating feels less strange as you get used to it.

Then you'll meet someone, fall in love, and get to that comfortable phase where you can flaunt your weirdness and know they love you for it.

It’s astonishingly self-aware, and is the kind of letter I wish I received more, instead of the one blaming men for all the ills of the world.

Then you read this letter by Emily Bracken posted on Medium and reposted on Huff Po. I’m around the corner, down the street, on Facebook, in your office, at our local coffee shop, a complete stranger. In the meantime, which of the things on Emily’s list will you admit to?

It wasn’t easy, I promise, because I’m a pretty big flirt.

Our generation has a pretty hard time dating, and one thing I hear constantly is how guys ruin it.

Sure you can have a full-fledged smooching session with any ‘ol body, but it’s not the same as a makeout session at the end of a great date.
