    Re: Dating Again

    mmm sandwiches...
    ... nah really.. dating seems 90% online stuff.
    It turns into a shotgun approach almost.
    Usually once a connection is established and texting is going well. A low key drink and apps during the week ensues ( last from 1hr to 2 hours)
    thus your not out on a ton of money for dinner dirnks dessert.
    In Boston My go to was masa in the south end with 50cents tapas on thursday.
    Tapas was a go to for me and I used to hit hammersley's? fo rdesert if everything was going really well.

    You already possess the best dating tip

    Now get yourself a tube of Nair for your crack and a fresh pack of razors for your balls.

    You know how when you first go on a date and someone does something that you think is maybe a little off but it's just a fluke because you wanna get in her pants?

    Don't dismiss that. Hit it and run. Bitches are crazy.

    Nothing's changed in 10 years. Women still have vaginas.

    Add some liquid panty remover and you will see.

    Re: Dating Again

    lol.

    I'd say the most important tip is to figure out and be clear on what you are looking for.
    What is acceptable, and what are your deal-breakers.
    What's important to you in a relationship (if that's what you're looking for) and what isn't.
    Keeping clear on that will be your best "wingman".

    Take up quilting. I'm only sort of kidding. If you have a genuine interest (don't fake anything; that way disaster lies) in any traditionally female hobby, cultivate that.
    Like when a woman shows up at a bike club with a genuine interest in bikes, and gets mobbed; it works the other way, too.

    That said, I met my wife on match.com, 18 years ago, so online can be a good option if you're smart about it.

    For first dates, my advice will be general. Don't get too fancy and elaborate.
    The goal is to get to know someone, and give her the chance to get to know you. Too much hubbub, and that gets missed.
    You also (presumably) are looking for someone who actually likes you, and will want to spend some time with you.
    Not just someone who wants mainly to be impressed and spent money on.

    A meet for coffee, in a place that is near some interesting things to see and do, can be perfect. Nobody is obligated or trapped.
    If coffee goes well, then extend an invitation to get up and walk in the park or see the nearby museum or whatever it is.
    Women often appreciate not feeling like they will be stuck in a situation if it isn't working out.

    Change who you are completely to appeal to a woman more. Then, after moving in together, bail on all that nonsense and let your own self shine!

    Yeah. Check under the hood to make sure what's advertised as a slush-box isn't a manual.

    Re: Dating Again

    First date: Drinks to make sure you don't hate each other and to ensure they're roughly in the same pound range their pics would lead you to believe.
    Second Date: Dinner and something interesting or fun. Batting cage, live music, local theater show, museum, skee ball... etc.
    Third Date: Cook dinner with them.

    Alternate: Tequila shots and smash on the first date.

    Re: Dating Again

    Also consider moving out of LA LOL

    Dating here is super "laid back"...most people out here recreationally date for years without it going anywhere (while dating other people)

    On the other hand, I meet so many single girls in their 30's with egg drying anxiety...And guys don't wanna marry or go long term...So if you're looking for it, you will stand out

    No offense to OP, but NESR is the last place in the milky way galaxy that I would come for dating advice. I'd ask the Klingons about dating before asking NESR.

    In Australia we refer to something like that as a "back, crack and sack" wax.

    oh come on, you think I made this with the expectation it would be 100% serious? Any other forum/platform would be too boring, plus I got to stand out now so these crazy ideas might just be crazy enough to work

    Re: Dating Again

    My sister lives in LA

    She got out of a looong relationship and did the tinder thing for a while, lots of wackos on there, dated someone through work, also a wacko, it sounds like people are very casual about dating/relationships out there compared to new england but there are wackos no matter where you go.

    Same thing I tell my recently divorced friend, tinder/online dating is a fucking gamble (literally and figuratively), not a bad thing but also find stuff you like to do and meet people that way, common interests are supposedly important

    Re: Dating Again

    1. Optimize tinder profile- Research how to take the best headshots (angle, jawline, squinching, etc), dress nice and take a few of those, grab a few GOOD photos with friends, a racing shot (or whatever you do that's cool). Write something in the text. Ask your friends to review the whole thing. Get a review on r/tinder, if necessary. If you manage to make yourself look better than a 6, superlikes will work like magic.
    2. Research demographic-appropriate openers. No need for genuine creativity, the internet is here for you. Just make it easy for them to respond. Get digits and move to texting ASAP. Setup a time to meet for coffee or drinks within a day or two.
    3. FUCK WADDU I DO NOW?!?
