Going to be honest here, I've given up on looking for someone to spend time with. It just requires too much energy and time to even get someone to respond; to start a conversation these days. Much more than I spend learning something new or actually doing something in life. And as I contemplate this I realize that actually maintaining a relationship would be even more energy and time consuming than that. And is that fun? Why is a relationship a job? Why can't it be fun? The last few people I dated didn't find me rich enough; And didn't want to wait or put any time or energy themselves to build a life together. So I give up. And it's absolutely liberating. I have too many interests and hobbies now and forever moving forward learning and doing new things. Whether its hiking mountain trails or driving through the rockies, developing VR experiences or investing in stocks, learning how the world works, exploring the winderness, playing a variety of instruments, teaching people photography (even though I'm not a pro, but people like my photos so I teach them what I know), snowboarding in whistler or just even reading. Do people even do that anymore? All these things I do and I enjoy, and yet I learn and do more day by day. Stuff I would much rather do than spend time on this or other dating sites. And to be honest, I feel more alone in the company of other people rather than actually being physically alone. Not even going to explain, just awake.
And now off to explore the world without you. Good luck! I know you'll find someone out there, but that isn't going to be me.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I find that I'm usially the only person that contributes to a conversation. So i just think now. No point in starting a conversation with a mute.
