How can I meet people who don’t bore me???
All dating is in apps these days, which requires constant messaging back and forth, and of course it’s all small talk at first so I never have the patience to stick with the boring bit, I always want to skip ahead to the fun part. Most of the time that’s what I end up doing… I get impatient, end up with a ‘friend with benefits’, they turn out to be horrible and I ditch them and start looking for someone else. Rinse and repeat.
I really want a proper relationship but I’m finding it so hard to make a connection with someone when I just can’t get past this barrier.
I also find that a lot of my behaviour is dictated by my ADHD and I really try not to talk about it with potential dates other than to casually mention it… but there’s a guy I’m talking to at the moment who only seems to text me when I’m crashing from my meds and I’m really zonked out and unresponsive and tired. I don’t want to keep explaining my behaviour with my ADHD because it seems to scare people away when I talk about it
I’m going speed dating next week. I’ve been before and it’s a lot of fun, but I got no matches. The turnout was bad, but I was really surprised because I thought it’d gone well. But I think I’m too weird because of my ADHD and it’s really making me self conscious and getting me down.
