I’m Tired Of Being Single, But I’m So Sick Of Going Out & Looking For Love

I’m single AF, but I so don’t want to be. I’m trying to play the game of love but I feel more like it’s playing me. I’ve been going out, putting myself out there and trying to meet people but the whole thing is getting exhausting. Yeah, I’m tired of being single, but I’m also sick of going out and looking for love.

I’m a homebody.
There’s nothing wrong with that — it’s the truth. I prefer a night on the couch to a night at the club. What I really want is a great guy who loves a good night in. I’m over going out every night and I’m ready to settle in on the couch with my favorite guy… I just have to find him.

Going out is expensive as hell.
Drinks, food, cover charges and tips — they all add up pretty damn fast. Just because I’m single doesn’t mean I’m not worried about my future. Yes, I want a boyfriend, but I also want to have money for a house, retirement, hobbies and literally everything else besides alcohol at the local bar. Being single might sound cheap, but those bar tabs are a bitch.

I don’t want to be drunk all the time.
I also don’t want to be the only one sober or always be the designated driver. I just want to have a good time, but spending every weekend at the bar just because you’re single sucks. I want my life to be about more than just looking for a boyfriend. Isn’t there another place for single people to spend their nights?

You can’t really meet people at home.
Therefore you have to go out… unless you want to meet a guy at work, and that can get messy and be more trouble than it’s worth. The chances of Prince Charming showing up on my doorstep are slim to none no matter how hard I wish he would. So unless I want to spend the rest of my life alone, I’m going to have to go out and I’m not happy about it.

I’m not interested in casual sex.
Do I just attract men who are only interested in this or are those just the only guys who hang out at bars? Seriously, where are all the good guys hiding? I don’t want to be a f*ck buddy or friend with benefits, and I certainly don’t want to Netflix and chill… unless that actually means just binging Netflix, of course

I shouldn’t have to work this hard to find someone.
Should I? There are so many fish in the sea but I can’t seem to catch a good one. I keep coming up with losers and I just keep throwing them back. I think my pole must be broken, because seriously, is it really this hard to find love?
