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?”

Love,
Breakup Girl

  3. Link exchange is nothing else except it is simply placing the other person’s web site link on your page at appropriate place and other
    person will also do same for you.

  7. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
    it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence
    on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  12. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your blog.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A number of my blog visitors have complained about my
    website not working correctly in Explorer but
    looks great in Opera. Do you have any advice to help fix
    this problem?

    if so then you will without doubt obtain nice experience.

  14. When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new
    comments are added- checkbox and now every time a
    comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment.
    Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me from that service?
    Kudos!

  16. This design is incredible! You most certainly know
    how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
    almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say,
    and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  17. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if
    you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support
    is very much appreciated.

    Comment by Ewan — May 29, 2017 @ 3:25 pm

  18. Appreciate the recommendation. Let me try it out.

  19. Hey there exceptional blog! Does running a blog such as this take a lot
    of work? I have very little understanding of programming however I
    was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, should you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off topic however I just had to ask.

    Cheers!

  23. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to
    see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so
    she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has
    83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  24. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate to this
    superb blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
    I look forward to brand new updates and will share this blog with my Facebook group.
    Talk soon!
