You may already be doing your part

Discouraged from dating to friend

The frustration is understandable. You simply accept that right now, it is what it is. Start out by naming your emotions. The next important step is to recognize that negative emotions will come and go. Stuck in the same old patterns.

That one person will make a world of difference, and all the heartache you've dealt with will have been worthwhile. At this point, it's more about continuing to take care of yourself and not getting even more discouraged by the fact that dating is still taking a bit longer than you expected. Having acceptance doesn't mean you accept that you are going to be alone for the rest of your life. Patterns tend to be problematic if you find that relationships are ending for the same reasons, or that you consistently are feeling unfulfilled in a similar way.

But I encourage you not to give up. It takes the pressure off, and it gives you a chance to let go of some of the negativity that might be lingering from your not-so-successful recent past dates.

It's a numbers game, but lately I'm just discourage and kind of tired of the whole process altogether. The first task is to ask yourself if you're truly in a good place to be dating.

Take a week or two and give yourself a break from engaging in any new relationship. Sometimes, it's not about doing more. You don't have to deny that you're having a hard time.

Some good, some bad, some weird, but none of it has really worked out. Plus, you are more likely to attract good potential mates when you feel worthy of receiving love from someone you would admire and respect. It means accepting that right now, for whatever reason, you haven't found the right person.

Dating burnout likely means that you need to change things up, even if it's a small, temporary change. The next piece of good news is that there are several ways to deal with dating burnout.

And all it takes is one person. Write down common characteristics of those partners, why you broke up and common feelings that you had around them. Only a small few and I didn't consider them very attractive and they didn't want anything to do with me beyond a physical relationship. As surely as you're feeling negative emotions right now, there will likely be other, more positive emotions that you will experience soon. It's hard, it's not always fun and it can be exhausting.
