1. You really can’t stand rom-coms.

You used to spend your weekends watching romantic movies, but every time one comes on the screen these days you quickly change the channel or roll your eyes. You absolutely hate watching romantic movies nowadays.

2. Couples PDAs annoys you.

You used to give a quick and harmless side-eye to couples kissing on the street. But now you seriously feel disgusted every time a couple shows their affection in public. The second you see anyone kissing or holding hands, you quickly turn the other way. Ugh, don’t they have any decency?

3. When someone hits on you, you think they have ulterior motives.

So many of your past dating experiences were with people who only took advantage of you. So now you protect yourself and your heart and think that anyone who approaches you has ulterior motives.

4. You think dating advice is fake.

All the how-to guides on the internet aren’t going to help you find Mr. or Mrs. Right. And no one knows this better than you. Happy couples are rare today, and finding your Mr. or Mrs. Right seems like an impossible task, so why bother looking?

5. Monogamy scares you.

You’re pretty sure that all relationships are doomed from the start. The second something happens, you run away. You know better than to get your hopes up and become attached to someone. The risk of having your heart broken again isn’t worth it anymore, so you keep your options open all the time.

6. Happily-ever-after only exists in movies.

Sometimes people’s happy endings don’t involve romance. But to think it will never happen to you because you’ve been scorned many times before is a sign you’ve become cynical. Sure, not all relationships are like a Disney movie. But Disney movies are just movies. In real life, there are a few fairy-tales. But you’ll never find yours if you stop searching for love.

7. You are super unfiltered when you go out on dates.

You’ve become so cynical about dating that you no longer put on your best face when you go out on a date. Why bother to be prim and proper when they’re only after you for sex? At least that’s what you tell yourself. If they can’t handle you at your worst, then they’re not worth your time, right?

8. You doubt your friends’ relationships.

Katie is head over heels with her new boyfriend. She thinks she’s finally found her perfect match. He’s attractive, he loves sports, he’s funny, and he really adores her. But you’re not sold just yet. Sure, things are going great for them now, but you know in the back of your mind that he’s going to mess up anytime soon.

How can you expect to find love if you’ve become cynical about dating? While we know that it’s impossible to be optimistic about dating all the time, it’s unhealthy to be cynical.
