Witty dating subject lines

Sit on my lap and talk about the first thing that pops up?

That fear of being abandoned, when it was realised, painful as it was it felt familiar.

When they weren’t leaving, I started acting up, and then I could convince myself they’d leave anyway.

It’s like we don’t believe in healthy relationships anymore and are desperate to fill up a void with somebody, anybody…just as long as they cater to our beliefs.

Here’s the thing: I know that dating is not as straightforward as it used to be and lazy communication has been enhanced by texts, email, and instant messenger, as well many people thinking that there are so many fish in the sea that they don’t need to commit, but when we believe that our options are limited or that we have no options, a lot of assclowns and Mr Unavailables but that there were plenty of healthy people too, lo and behold, I saw them, met them, and was interested, with the key difference being that I actually believed that I was genuinely believing it was possible.

When I became ill with the immune system sarcoidosis in 2003, I was so distracted by the ‘guy with a girlfriend’ that even though I should have been focusing on my health, I was more interested on focusing on him as my only option! This is how I ended up in a number of half hearted relationships and yawning my way through many dates.

It was only when I ditched him that it occurred to me to start fighting for my survival and opening up my options. I don’t think I’ve admitted this before, but the last chunk of my relationship with the guy with a girlfriend, I think I wanted to win more than I wanted him.

He’s made mistakes, but he’s able to find humor in them.

He’s not worried about tomorrow, he’s too busy working for today.15. He takes pride in how he looks and people respect him for that. He doesn’t stray from these values, in fact he stands up for them. He helps her reach her dreams, all-the-while moving closer to attaining his own.19. He has the social intelligence to see that storm before it peeks it’s nasty little head.20. “Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.” Einstein knew that success is reached if you’re valuable to others. He makes the lives of others better by being a part of them.21. He has his purpose, but he knows that life isn’t merely about accomplishments, but about leaving a legacy.

It felt like a slap in the face and I smarted from her words but they stuck in my head for a very long time and in the end, I came to recognise the significance and truth of her words once my pride had settled down.

It’s true – I used to live like my only option was whatever guy I was seeing at the time and it was more important to be in a relationship and pursue this feeling of love and validation that I was looking for, than it was to be in a quality relationship.

Knowing this allows him to try things others won’t, and to work harder when others usually quit.24. When he starts something he’s passionate about, no one can stop him or pull back on the reigns. He’s also open-minded and willing to listen to other points of view.
