Will dating Mr. Wrongs help me find another Mr. Right?

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 9:25 am

Staying in the game on July 6, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

Is it a good idea to date people who you don’t really like just to keep yourself socially involved and “out there”? My truest love so far broke my heart about six months ago, but I try to date most guys who ask me out even though I don’t feel particularly interested in them. I’m afraid if I stop dating I will feel worse. On the other hand, sometimes it’s really difficult to muster even the slightest bit of enthusiasm for any of the guys I meet. None of them lives up to the legacy of Mr. Right. What do you suggest?

— Lisa

Dear Lisa,

See “Flirtation Continuum,” below.

It is a good idea:
– to date just to keep yourself socially involved and out there.
– to accept at least one invitation, no matter what — you never know.
– NOT to fall — as you have not — for the next guy (or series thereof) who comes along, just because he’s there.

It is not a good idea:
– to keep someone you don’t like On Call for the singular purpose of keeping yourself Out There.
– to actively compare Mr. Date or Two to Mr. Right. Though it is a natural, human impulse. And, to the degree that you honestly learn from relationship R-1 what you do and don’t want out of relationship R, it can eventually become a somewhat informative enterprise. But right now? Uh-uh.

So: Go out when you feel like it, stay in when you don’t. Dating helps, but it is not The Answer. To anything but the question, “What is a mixed bag of experiences that offers a mixed bag of feelings?”

  1. Hello there, I do believe your web site could be having internet browser compatibility
    problems. Whenever I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.

    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Aside
    from that, fantastic website!

  2. I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading very
    slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end?

    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  9. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this
    site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to
    get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual
    appearance. I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this.
    Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Opera. Exceptional Blog!

  35. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours these
    days, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s beautiful worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the web will probably be much more helpful
    than ever before.

  36. First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a
    quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to
    writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!

  37. Spot on with this write-up, I seriously feel this site needs much more attention.
    I’ll probably be back again to read through more, thanks for the info!

  38. Hi! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours
    take a large amount of work? I’m completely new to blogging but I do write in my diary on a daily basis.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
