I am what you call a “serial dater.” This means that I regularly go out with strangers for the purpose of entertainment. I date strangers the way some people watch films or read books: like sport.

Someone who feels like they always need a boyfriend or girlfriend. Often, Serial Daters believe they are in love after dating for two days. These relationships usually last for about two weeks, followed by much moping and heartbreak until the next guy or girl comes along two days later, at which point the cycle begins again.

These people are often insecure and need another person to boost their self-esteem.

Most commonly seen in high school girls.

A serial dater is someone who doesn't know what they want in a relationship. They keep dating all kinds of people from different backgrounds trying to land the person they think they can fit themselves into the lives of who they date. A serial dater will go to a party with a date and will try to make moves on others who already are in a relationship or has a date or gf at the party. This person will think she can also get him, as she plans on all the people she dates. She prefers steak dinners to salads. She is a taker, not a giver. No wonder all the guys don't stick around to be with her. She will continue to prowl on the internet on free dating websites like PlentyOfFish.com, Match.com, and all other free websites. She never pays. She only takes. If she ever gives, it will be from something or somewhere where she has taken.
