I'm an attractive 25 year old female. I'm outgoing and outspoken. I wear my heart of my sleeve and people seem to like me pretty well. I've been single for a long time because the last relationship I was in was abusive and left me feeling scarred. I was very hesitant to talk to guys at first because it had been so long since I wasn't taken. The past 6 months or so I've been opening up to men a lot more and have been on various dates which end up going nowhere. Is it just me or are there no more decent people in the world? I get asked ALL the time why I'm single. I feel like being attractive makes it harder to find someone with genuine intentions. I get a lot of proposals for friends with benefits or just random hookups, neither of which I'm particularly interested in. I feel like if I were less attractive maybe guys would see me for who I was rather than what I look like. I feel like no one is interested in getting to know me, and when I do try to have an actual conversation I can tell they're not really listening to me. It's so incredibly frustrating how shallow my generation is. I'm definitely starting to feel a bit jaded."
