Dating is a good way to get to know a person you like. Serial dating gives you the chance to get to meet new people, and meeting new people could be very interesting. Dating could be helpful if you realize your own shortcomings and improvise, in that way your chances of getting a good partner increases with every take.
Easy as it seems, it could be an equally laborious process for some. Individuals who maintain an exceptionally high standard or may not have the idea about what qualities they are exactly looking for in their partner or do not learn from their past mistakes, could end up with a “marathon” of unsuccessful dates. The rising popularity for “online” dating has added up to serial dating since finding prospects and rejecting them have become quite easy. So what is wrong with serial dating? Many people do it, and after all you have to find the right person through a series of ‘trial and error”, but then again how do you define “right”? Dating could be a good way, I repeat, to meet new people, but there are definitely a lot many downsides to the entire process. Let us look at a few of them:
4. Giving your best becomes a lot of efforts
You may have met an awful bunch of people in the past and either you rejected them or they rejected you.
The people you have dated before may have cheated on you, or lied to you, or gave you hollow promises or broke off with you for no justified reason whatsoever. The problem is all these experiences tend to leave a mark, and if they were serious, and you have not given yourself sufficient time to get over the disappointment or heartbreak, chances are that the “marks and bruises” will show up on the next dates.
What if your next date is simply amazing and just the person you have been looking for? Say your first few dates were fine, and you have grown feelings for the person, and on the 20th day you suddenly catch that person with another guy/girl in a suspicious manner? Would you at once start doubting him and compare him with someone dishonest from your past? It is this tendency of comparing that haunts a relationship, and may even wreck it.
