This is a great question and a lot of people are struggling with the same thing. First, you need to understand, why do you want to be in a relationship? Is it because all your friends are in one and you feel pressure from your social group. A relationship is not a cure for loneliness or boredom. People tend to look for a relationship because they want to fill the emptiness inside but the problem is that if you enter into a relationship because you need something you start off by asking the other person to fix whatever is broken inside you. Make no mistake that relationship will eventually fail if you are entering in one just because you want them to fix your problems.
Moving on - Do you want short term or long term commitment or no commitment at all. You need to be very clear on what kinda person are you looking for. What is it that you don't like about the people you meet. Most people are scared to get hurt and they will try to end the relationship even before it has begun. Going into a relationship is scary and requires a leap of faith. Unfortunately, there will be the pain but you can set meaning to it as that will give you the opportunity to grow.
And lastly - You need to look into the location you are meeting these people. For example; if you are not that type of person that goes to bars or clubs every weekend but then when you feel that you need to meet someone you go there with a sole purpose to meet a date, don't be surprised that the person might have completely different interests or priorities in life
