What are the signs of being a jaded dater?
Is it when you were going to say “yes” and he says “no” and you don’t care?
Is it when someone describes the perfect guy, and you yawn and say, “Hey, why not?” Or maybe it’s when they describe the perfect guy and you say, “Not this week, I have a test.” Or maybe it’s when you agree to start dating the week before finals because you figure it won’t go beyond the first date anyway.
Is it when you allot about 15 minutes to date-prep and almost forget to double check in the mirror on your way out?
Is it when you neglect all dating etiquette out of weariness and don’t care if you scandalize? Or is it when you space out on the ride home because you’re reviewing for the quiz the next day in your head?
Is it when you no longer find the concept of dating exciting, intriguing, stimulating, or even interesting? Or is it when you’d rather stay in and lose a game of Scrabble to your sister than maybe meet your bashert?
If so, I’m getting there fast.
