Yet, if you’re feeling brave and seeking a thrill, give one a chance.
Being single means falling off of the monkey bars and landing face-first on the ground, bewildered and confused. Is it the clichéd lack of self-esteem or plain old boredom? Quite often, when people feel the need to be in a relationship, they’re insecure and need the ongoing confidence boost from a significant other.
They cannot be single because they don’t know how to be. Still, this kind of relationship can be very toxic, but not only to the serial dater.
In the bizarre world of romance that exists today — the “hook-up culture,” if you will — there are three types of people: the lovers, the loners and, of course, the serial daters.
The “lovers” are exactly what you would assume they are: hopeless romantics who long for an everlasting relationship with their soul mates and who will stay involved with “the one” for months and months, or even years, without a second thought.
As expected, the honeymoon phase can become addicting and serial daters are most definitely the addicts.
In fact, they become addicted to the honeymoon phase that they try to experience it over and over again with someone new almost every week.They consistent companions and manipulate their lives so almost every aspect of their well-being revolves around the other person.The “loners” are the people who don't believe in relationships because they're too good to be involved with someone else while they're working toward a career and trying to get their sh*t together.Quite often, serial daters are jaded and don’t believe in everlasting love, so they fill their time with temporary men or women who will fill the void of a long-term relationship.Their constant refusal to be committed to one person stems from negative past experiences, anywhere from the way they were raised to a previous relationship, which crashed and burned before things got serious.But, if you don't want to succumb to the harsh reality that you're just another notch on the belt, acknowledge these important reasons why you should steer clear of the serial daters: Ah, the honeymoon phase: It’s arguably the best stage of a relationship.
