There is no sugar coating the fact that dating sucks. I am not talking about finding a person and liking them and it becoming something more. That is amazing and is what makes all of the dates that didn’t work out worth it. Getting there, though, is another story. Nowadays, dating comes with experiencing everything from matching on an app and the other person never sending a message (or you sending a message and the other person never responding) to going on three dates and being ghosted, because that is also apparently appropriate. You really do have to have some thick skin to make it in this game, because there is a lot of turnover and rejection.
