Why I Haven't Dated In YEARS
How long has it been since your last date? A day? A week? A month? These people probably put your dry-spell to shame. They've gone without a relationship for long stretches, but for good reason. Learn more below.

Getting back in the dating game can be scary.

1
My secret? I haven't dated in so long that I'm afraid to start again.

So these people have decided not to.

2
I don't do relationships.
I haven't dated in over 2 years because I'm scared and not ready for commitment.

They don't trust that their partners won't cheat.

3
I hate how easy women become when I say I'm in the military. This is why I haven't dated since 2011 I just don't trust them. All these unfaithful wives and girlfriends. It's too much to deal with.

And they're worried that they've packed on the pounds.

4
I haven't been on a date in two years because my weight makes me insanely self conscious

They think their STIs will scare people away.

5
I haven't dated anyone since my ex cheated on me and gave me herpes because I'm too embarrassed and ashamed of it

Or they have literally no time for games.

6
I haven't dated in years because I will only date someone if they have potential to be my wife. If I was a player I would get so many girls but I don't want that. I'm patient, I'll find you.

They can't handle unreciprocated love.

7
I tell people that I haven't dated for so long because I'm too busy and picky, but in reality it's because I'm terrified of being rejected, tossed aside, and not loved for who I am.

Or wonder if they would be able to reciprocate someone else's feelings.

8
I'm too shallow with too high of standards. I haven't been on a date with anyone in 2 years because of this.

This person just can't say goodbye.

9
My fiance was murdered five years ago. I haven't dated since. It would feel too much like cheating.

And these people say they can't let themselves go all-in again.

10
Once I get into a relationship, I give my heart and soul to a person, that is why I haven't dated in over a year.
11
I don't get attached to people easily, but when I do, I care way too much. I guess that's why I haven't dated anyone

Some aren't the person they need to be yet.

12
I haven't been on a date in about 2 years. Maybe I'm still not ready for a relationship.
13
I haven't dated anyone in 12 years because I hate myself.

And others put their kids first.

14
I am a single mom. I haven't been on a date in over 2 years. My daughter will always come first but I wish someone wanted to turn our duo into a family.

They're hanging onto the past.

15
I haven't dated anybody in 2 years.. I still have this crazy idea that my Ex will come back around one day..

Or actually enjoy the single life.

16
My last breakup was so bad, I haven't dated in eight years.  I'm just happier single.  I don't think I'll ever get married.
17
I love being alone... There I said it... I abandoned all my friends and after my wife left me i swore off dating... I'm in heaven right now

They're still confused about where things in past relationships went wrong.

18
My last relationship ended because his feelings for me changed. When I asked what feelings, he couldn't tell me. The lack of explanation broke my heart and I haven't dated since.

And worry about their appearances.

19
People call me beautiful and gorgeous but I haven't dated since my ex decided to be gay and it ruined my self esteem.
20
I haven't been on a date in 2 years because I have acne
