I'm trying to determine my thoughts on my aversion to online dating. I'm a low-to-mid 20s dude who has never had a girlfriend. Surely I'm not handsome enough that women are throwing themselves at me left and right, but I attribute a good bit of my singleness to my own volition. I've never put much effort into finding or pursuing a girl, out of both fear of rejection and simply because I've never found that path to be particularly desirable (it's unclear the weightings of each reason). That is, my life is pretty neat without the ups and downs of a significant other, in that I have a good job and aspirations, close friends and family, and unique and time consuming hobbies (I never feel lonely or bored).
That being said, I do hop on hinge maybe 1-2 times a year just to remind myself that I could get a girl if I wanted to. I get a number of matches of women I find attractive, but that's where it stops. I never message them back. And a couple weeks later, my profile is gone and I resume my normal life.
That brings me to right now- I have a number of legit attractive women sitting in my hinge message inbox with the ball sitting in my court and I'm not sure what I should do. Certainly, I wouldn't expect all of them to blossom into relationships, but it's a start. I'm not sure if I don't respond because maybe I'm afraid they won't reply, or if I simply haven't much desire to talk to them in the first place.
Anyone have any ideas on how to sort this out in my mind? Pizz?
