In the month of January alone, I went on close to 15 dates with a wide range of men, from lawyers to yogis to hippies to businessmen.

I dated a banker and a farmer, a cowboy (not kidding) and a meditation instructor.

I really can't trust women as I would before that disastrous experience.

Since right now i'm looking for a long-term one what ways might there be excluding this non-exclusive dating thing?

Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. I have been dating very recently to someone who seems nice.

Have a lot in common, but enough difference to learn more about each other.

I really dislike the idea of dating basically anyone because I might end up hurting...

So I've got like 4 potential gf's in 4 courses but the problem's that they look all the same and I don't know any of them on a deeper level.

This summer is will be one year that I have been single.

I started dating on and off back in December, but found it to be tedious, exhausting, challenging and for a lack of better words, completely emotionally brutal.

I've read more books than I care to share, listened to more podcasts than I feel comfortable admitting and have even turned to movies in times of complete and utter desperation to understand the whole concept, which truly is foreign to me.
