Men that gave up on relationships, what finally made you decide to?

I’m so tired. I’m tired of giving my best self and getting shit in return. I just want someone to value me, to cheer at my accomplishments. My last relationship I got a promotion and the immediate response was “Well I’m still stuck at my job.” The one before that I graduated from my Masters Program and got the comment of “Well that’s fine, now spend more time on me.”

I just want to date a normal, supportive person. I’m so fucking tired of having to carry others burdens. I’m not perfect but I know my flaws and am working on them. To meet that normal person? Bullshit like tinder, okcupid, bars, ect. I just don’t care anymore. I’m just gonna live for myself and hope it works out.
