I give up on dating and relationships
Behind all the butterflies and fairy tales, love can sometimes rear an ugly, heartbreaking side. That’s why we spend years upon years in search of our “one true love.” Love means having someone to share your secrets with, someone to support you when times get tough, and even someone to tell you when you’re being a whiney little brat and you need to shut the hell up. Giving up on love is not the solution I know what you’re thinking: “No. I am just fine on my own.” And while I completely believe that you can live life without having that type of companion, I know that deep down, you want one.
But just because it doesn’t happen the second you want it to doesn’t mean it will never happen.
When I am not writing columns I spend my time in an office which works with and for young people.
Last year we tried a new event for young adults which we called Dating & Degustation.
Some forums can only be seen by registered members.
Nearly everyone finds themselves acting a little differently when they’re swept off their feet by an alluring partner.The risk with dating events is that a person who might interiorly be interested has to rather explicitly admit to themselves (and others) that they are interested in (a) meeting someone with whom they could enter into a relationship and (b) one day marrying such a person and in the 21st century we knew that would be a rather large call.None the less we created the event, started advertising, and, to be sure, the registrations began to come in.The evening consists of a five-course meal in an upmarket hotel.At the start of each course the male participants change tables according to a preset list, so that each person has the opportunity to have a mini-date with five different people.
