Stop dating when
You’ve done the work, so why are you wasting your time with some loser who hasn’t accomplished anything? It makes sense that you would be super attracted to ambition.
So you’ve been on two or three dates with a person, you’ve texted back and forth pretty regularly and it seems to be going well. Make sure they’re definitely into you before you drop the “bye EE” bomb. But don’t commit to any sort of activity that requires a length of time, i.e. Suggest you meet up for a coffee and nothing more than a coffee.
Even worse, I went into many of those relationships without strong feelings or a desire to commit; they were largely a matter of convenience.
Put simply, my dating life was guided less by the question, "why? " I stopped dating when I realized that "why not" is not a good enough reason to be in a relationship.
It takes like five minutes to drink a hot beverage (two if you don’t mind burning your oesophagus) which means it can be over and done with pretty quickly. Drop the “I’m not ready to be in a relationship line”, thank them for being so awesome and say you hope you’ll still be friends with them.
You’ve studied your butt off and gotten into grad school. It’ll become super clear from the start that you’re not well-matched. You already know that you live a pretty amazing single life. You have the self-confidence and the courage to go it alone for a little while, so why not just do that?

I swear I don't hate guys, and I'm certainly not bitter, I'm just not interested. Constantly seeking out relationships, finding them, and ultimately getting let down or letting someone else down was ruining me, literally.You’ve landed your dream job and proven that you deserve it. You treat others well, you care about your career and you stand up for yourself. Whenever you go out with a guy who’s unemployed or in some limbo between having a job and going to school, you totally regret it. When you’ve been together long-term and the crap hits the fan, you’re going to be the one dealing with it because he definitely won’t be stepping up to the plate. He could be the cutest guy on the planet but if he hates his job and doesn’t love his life either, then that bad attitude is going to rub off on you.
