So, I have been working on this post for a while, let me know what you think. Of course, I’m just a simple social anthropologist, an observer of life, someone just trying to make sense of the inconsistencies.
Impulse dater – This daters mantra is “if it feels good, do what you feel” They rarely ever see the train before it crashes. When it does crash, they barely notice because it was all about the experience anyway.
Control dater – Likes to plan every detail of everyday and moment. Doesn’t want to get hurt and will avoid the pitfalls at all cost, even if it means stepping away. This dater doesn’t like the unexpected and spontaneity of dating.
Needy dater – Oh, dear this poor dater can’t even help themselves. They are choc-full of needs and usually paired up with someone completely oblivious to them. This individual needs to spend a lot of time self-reflecting and staying present in their moment. Stop the over analyzing and realize that it’s dating and you have no control over any of it anyway.
Cautious dater – This smart girl takes things very slow, communicates everything and is guarded. You are aware of everything and constantly taking notes. You are not interested in diving of the cliff for love and not interested in someone doing this for you either. The person your seeing will have a long haul before they have any clue how you really feel. Here is a hint if this pragmatic soul is still seeing you, it’s probably a good sign..probably!
Throw caution to the wind dater – my favorite, you date as if tomorrow will end. Living each moment to the fullest. Fearless and unafraid to lose. According to my friend R.S. you would also be classified as a fool!
Aloof dater – clueless most of the time, planet oblivion, population one i.e you. You are the dater that seems to be completely unaware that you are dating. Probably on the verge of missing out on a good experience.
Playa, Playa dater – wants it all and likes to have options. Nothing wrong with this, except they usually never inform you that you are part of a roster.
the busy dater -aaaghh, the one most people complain about. “Only God is that busy…according Bren”! This dater you spend most of your dating life trying to figure out if they are selfish, not-interested or really that busy..yeah right! You make time for whatever you want.
self-indulgent dater – egotistical, self-involved, a selfish dater..simply put someone passing time until another warm body shows.
