Dating is hard. But honestly, so is everything else. Paying the bills is hard. Maintaining relationships with your friends and family is hard. Thinking about your career and future and financial stability is hard. Raising kids is easy, though. Ha ha!
Leon Hendrix, 24, from Texas, says he finds traditional online dating apps too time consuming, so instead, he decided to take the plunge and rent some ad space instead.
Why I QUIT online dating
The entrepreneur has even set up a website where potential dates are required to fill in a short 'application'. Apparently, Leon received applications less than a week after launching, and now has the mammoth task of sifting through in the hope of finding love.
Seems a little more time consuming than a dating app if you ask us, but Leon explained it initially started off as a joke. I'm a busy guy and I didn't want to make the time for that. I thought the more reach I can get, the better it gets for me.
Sep 18, Am so fed up with dating and feel like I'm never going to meet anyone! I have been single for almost 2 years and have been on Read more on Netmums. I've given dating my best shot for several years but I have to admit that I'm really fed up with it at this point. It's the most messed up thing I've ever encountered. It's not that I haven't tried or that I'm too picky in my search, it's just that the guys I meet don't take anything seriously and they all basically suck. So I think, I'm giving up. Not forever. But for now. I'm so tired of trying so hard with little success. I'm so tired of wanting love so badly, and never even getting to the dating part. Modern dating is a joke. The way people toss others away. The way we text for days on end and end it with silence. The way we hook up with no strings.
This is basically a story I'm creating for myself that I can later on tell my grandkids. It'll be a great story. Leon managed to hunt down a billboard for a cheap price, before working on his application questions.
While they start off pretty chilled - for example, what each woman likes to read - they progress to "deeper questions". And Leon said the whole thing came together pretty quickly, adding: "I'm an unconventional guy.
I don't drink, I like to work really hard and I'm the type of person who would put up a billboard to find someone.
You'll never get bored with me. Everyone's getting involved which is great. They were all on board. They told me that there hadn't been any new advertisers on there for a while so I got it for much, much cheaper in a good location.
The website, I know how to do that stuff, it's nothing new for me, so it was quite quick. However, Leon hasn't had a positive reaction from everyone and has faced criticism over the referral fee especially. Thinking about your career and future and financial stability is hard.
Raising kids is easy, though. Ha ha! And not just being ok with it- Learning to relish it.
The physical and mental benefits of solitude include increased concentration, productivity, and serenity. More importantly, being alone allows you a better understanding of yourself which will ultimately draw the right people to your side. Life is just a series of stories we tell ourselves.
The second you stop searching for something, it materializes in front of your eyes. Be open.

Leon Hendrix, 24, from Texas, says he finds traditional online dating apps too time consuming, so instead, he decided to take the plunge and rent some ad space mcauctionservicellc.com: Lucy Devine. If you loved dating, you would want to stay single and dating pretty much forever. You would be excited at the prospect of meeting a new guy all the time and you would never settle down. But you're sick of the ghosting and almost everything and you're completely fed up, so when you do meet a good guy, you're never going to let him go.
That does not mean you must now allow people to walk all over you. Say yes to people and opportunities and hangouts. Is it because all your other girlfriends engaged, married, pregnant?
