No one is to ever dictate your worth ! you are the captain of your own ship and your own actions/aura send out signals to people whether you are worthy of respect or not.
As for dating, people can flake for a lot of reasons :
* your intentions aren't the same his
* he's scared of being hurt/rejected
* he likes to play/toy people
* he's gone back to his ex
* he decided he wants to stay single
* he lost interest in you
Whatever the case may be, you should assume that dating is something that requires a lot of self-assurence, confidence, patience, and optimism.
You'll most likely go through a series ok dates (ok ones, nice ones, chemistry induced and disastrous ones :shock
, but the main point is that if you are looking to fin that one special person who will give all kinds of good, unconditional, sweet lovin; then why not go through all that ? After all, wouldn't that make you appreciate him more once you meet him ?
Think of it this way, life is giving you an opportunity and is testing you/preparing for something to change in your life. Going and being rejected by these guys is just a step in the process of finding something better and much more fulfilling - the man you can honestly love !
Hope this helps and don't worry, I"m going through the same thing right now and I'm not gonna let any of these flakes get the best of me. Enjoy yourself and all the best to you Chris ;)
