If you haven’t noticed by now, millennials hookup culture has reached a new level of bizarre. There’s ghosting, breadcrumbing, cushioning, fuck boys, friends with benefits and the list could honestly go on-and-on. There are the hopeless romantics, jaded daters, bachelors and serial daters. If you are unsure of what a serial dater is, Taylor Swift, is a prime example. In fact, she is the definition of a serial dater.
Serial daters are considered to be the most dangerous daters. They have incredible charm and come off as if they are looking for a relationship. In most instances, they are. Most of you have probably witnessed a serial dater in your life at one point or another. A serial dater will most likely leave you at an unexpected time, if not a terrible time. They somehow always find the worst days to disappear – whenever things get tough, a serial dater is quickly out the door. However, this isn’t always the case. Sometimes a serial dater just craves new sexual partners. Below are a few reasons why you should avoid serial daters:
They Don’t Want To Be Single
This isn’t necessarily a terrible thing but they hate being single. While that doesn’t seem like such a problem, the problem is that they can’t stand being alone. If someone has a hard time grappling with being alone, they aren’t truly ready for a relationship. There are internal issues that need to be sorted with a serial dater. Rather than addressing whatever issues they might be dealing with, they use a boyfriend/girlfriend as a Band-Aid. Chances are, there might be self-esteem issues at hand. Being in a relationship with this sort of personality can be heavily toxic.
They Can’t Do Commitment
Serial daters are jaded, jumping from prospect to prospect. This leaves very little time for you to get close to them; well, you might become attached but they are keeping themselves at arm’s length. Don’t expect a long-term relationship to blossom. They could be avoiding true intimacy for fear of heartbreak. They most likely avoid sharing personal details, getting to know you and talking about a future relationship. If you find yourself attracted to someone who prioritizes anything but a relationship, you are most likely seeing a serial dater. They love social approval, sex, fun, being a bachelor, or bachelorette, and basically anything but a relationship.
Someone who is a serial dater is known as a bachelor or bachelorette. Serial daters love living life on the edge. They are consumed with work, love the thrill of meeting multiple people, sleeping around and have a problem committing to relationships. Bottom line?
A serial dater is not emotional ready for a relationship?
