Are You A Serial Dater? 7 Signs You Might Be
There are two types of people in this world: relationship people and non-relationship people. Some of us completely embrace the joys of being wild and free, but not all of us are as entertained by the single life.
If you seem to be in a new relationship every month then you might be a serial dater. Serial daters always jump from relationship to relationship, but they don’t realize they’re doing it. They are instead under the impression they’re just lucky when it comes to falling in love.
If this sounds like you, then chances are you are a serial dater.
Here are a few more signs to help you differentiate.
1. You choose hanging out with a woman/man over hanging out with your friends.
The weekend is coming up and your friends are starting to make plans. You’re hesitant to commit because you’d much rather netflix and chill with your new favorite person.
Even when you’ve committed to plans with your friends, you somehow end up ditching them when you hear from your man/woman of the moment.
2. You tend to talk to multiple people at once.
You never keep all your eggs in one basket. You want to keep your options open because you might like one person more than the other, but you’re not sure if he or she is as interested in you.
You make sure to keep yourself busy and feel the need to have multiple options just in case one of them isn’t texting you back.
3. You already have a back-up in mind just in case things go south with the current person you’re talking to.
Even while you’re preoccupied with someone, you’re already thinking about the next one. You create a backup plan in your head just in case things don’t work out with your current person. You can’t stand the thought of being left alone and heartbroken, so you make sure to plan ahead.
4. You legitimately can’t remember the last time you weren’t involved with someone.
When you look back, you notice that you’ve always been “with” someone, whether it be in an actual relationship, seeing someone casually, or just hooking up. You can’t remember the last time you were completely single and alone.
5. You spend a great deal of time browsing dating apps like Badoo or Tinder.
You have multiple accounts on several different dating sites and you’re constantly checking your messages or swiping right, even while you’re out with friends. You’re obsessed with scrolling through profiles to scan potential eligible mates.
6. You’ve double (or triple) booked dates in one day
Yes, it’s wrong, but you’ve managed to successfully pull off multiple dates in one day. You meet for lunch with one person, go out with the other, and then end the night with a completely different person. Bravo for making the time and pulling that off!
7. You can’t go to a party or event without being accompanied by a date.
Got invited to a concert with friends? A birthday party on Friday night? Whatever the plans may be, you always think of who you can bring with you. You don’t want to be the third wheel and you don’t want to show up by yourself, so you have a date already in mind.
