    Recently been on two dates with different people and afterwards both have said they're not looking for a relationship, how have I had such bad luck with this?

    Just find it annoying that they agree to go out with me then turn around and say they don't want to get into anything

    Neither were blind dates, one I met at a party and got her number then asked her out, seemed like she was interested but then I was pretty surprised when she said she wasn't looking for a relationship at the moment

    In my experience first and second dates are often pretty tentative and it is perfectly possible to be blown out at this stage. But I think the hit rate should be >50%. Probably just a run of bad luck. Dust yourself down and get back in the saddle..

    I have a sure-fire way of avoiding bad dates, don't go on dates.

    If you're playing the game then you need to expect to lose.

    Finding a RuneScape girlfriend is probably more successful than going on a date for the first or the second time, it's okay OP

    I dated a girl for 3 months before she turned around and said she wasn't ready for a relationship - no doubt there's somebody in an even worse situation than that somewhere in the world too.

    I will admit I've done this. But then again, I wasn't too sure. He did also turn up 30 odd minutes early (which meant I had to rush) and then informed me he had no money. He then wanted to discuss "our future". He'd asked me out a week before...

    And then he got it into his head that we were together and was talking about marriage and moving in together.

    Oh, and then I was informed that he has a girlfriend...

    There was the issue of a 14 year age gap too.

    Well it's better than saying "You're ugly and I do not want a relationship" yes?

    Move on.
