    Re: Dating Again

    Tinder and that whole "am I hot or not" class of apps seems targeted towards one thing. That's fine if that's what you're after.
    On the other hand, match, ok-cupid and the sort seem to be targeted towards those looking to very aggressively prescreen. Very different kind of mindset.

    Use these tools accordingly.

    Re: Dating Again

    I wouldn't date anyone who has tinder/bumble etc.
    those are strictly hit n runs in my opinion.
    How do people meet nowadays other than the apps? I don't really know.
    I do know that loyalty and respect are synonyms with unicorns. Yet if you if find something worth keeping do whatever you can to keep without "selling yourself short".
    Idk what people do in LA on first dates but fuck that anyways. Be different. Try new things and see what happens.
    Also honest opinion, don't give chances early. You see the signs fucking bail. There's no fixing it, if it's broken from the beginning.

    This is more third date appropriate but remember, "There's rarely a "Welcome!" mat at the back door."

    Re: Dating Again

    I just found myself now on the Single list. GF of 4 years dumped me. Kind of sucks as I fucking hate dating. I've been divorced almost 20 years. I'm tired of the crazy shit I run into. Funny stuff to share with the boys over beers but tragic when you're the other occupant on a crash and burn date. I'm done with online. I'm done with going out to clubs. I'm going to be that guys that listens when people say, "When you least expect it..." I'll be home watching DVR of races I missed. I won't be expecting anyone to come to my door.

    I just want to ride motorcycles and then have a cold drink post ride. See you all at the race track. I will now be pitting next to the noisy guys and not needing that quiet section I was in.

    Yeah, and then you end up with an ankle biter and your discretionary income is back down to 50% of what it would have been if you stayed single

    Re: Dating Again

    Not always lol...Indian parents that arrange marry have the expectation is that she would not work for the first 10-12 years or so until the kids got older. Other girls that don't make a lot to begin with are hoping that getting married to someone who makes money, so they can work less after they have kids but still upgrade to a comfortable life. Some other girls that make a lot of money are smart/educated and sure as hell won't let you spend tons on something as dumb as toys.

    Yeah, but the 10 years before the spawn was filled with convertibles, flying airplanes, racing motorcycles and fun travel!

    All good things must come to an end, lol.

    Or, don't marry someone for your parents. Find someone YOU like and marry that person.

    Re: Dating Again

    50%? LOL!

    I wouldn't listen much to what any of these clowns have to say about what type of online dating is good or bad. Usually those with the strongest opinions have the least experience. Give it all a try, you'll figure out what works out for you. Humans are like that, different in their own ways. Not every Tinder girl is in it to smash, not every church girl is looking for 3 kids and a white picket fence. Maybe you do well at bars, maybe at clubs, maybe at the grocery store, maybe online. The important part is you have fun doing it and don't waste any time or stress on something you're not enjoying.

    Both very true... had plenty of disposable income, lots of toys, time to use them and enjoy life.
    With the house and the spawn... no time and no money.

    Bingo.

    I did best being a creeper, but also being the best looking guy at the party. It wasn't a big party, there were two guys there. But hey, as long as it works once, then once is all you need.

    Re: Dating Again

    it's all kind of a crap shoot...for every nice girl out there is another crazy one. usually you won't know at first.

    just cast the net wide (online, in person, friends of friends, clubs, bars, vegas, etc.), screen the best you can, and hopefully over the test of time, she ends up treating you well.

    oh crap...it's just like buying a bike

    There's not a specific age cut-off, but people on Tinder at 21 are looking for something different than at age 30. Yeah, younger people are looking for a hook-up, but that changes once you get older.

    I have a lot of friends that met their significant others through Tinder and Bumble and the like, they're all in their 30s so they went on looking for a relationship. In fact I know of a couple of marriages that happened through Tinder; you want to date someone you find attractive so it's as good a place to start as any. I would say they have more success on Bumble (girl has to message guy first) and Hinge (girls are friends/friends of friends on Facebook) than on Tinder these days, but whatever.

    For my friends that met outside apps/online, it's mostly through social stuff like Boston Social Sports League (or whatever it's called), activity groups, that kind of thing.

    Indeed... go figure. After years of searching, the one I like most has the highest maintenance costs (the Ducati that is).

    Re: Dating Again

    Just climbed back out of the dating pool. I was mortified at what was in there. Dating sucks.

    If you're serious about getting into something long term I think the secret is to go on a LOT of first dates. Keep it cheap and easy; coffee joints and such. No assumptions and be ready to walk after 5 if its obvious. Be straight and expect them to do the same. First sign of lies and you bolt. Complains about "well most guys take me out to dinner" or such and yer done. Used a photo that's obviously 10+ years old and not even close to current, done. Quantity. Quantity. Quantity. Cover a lot of ground and weed 'em out fast.

    Also don't be afraid to have high standards. Be a cold hearted prick and feel free to walk on the first sign you don't like. No sense wasting anyones time here. Not a charity thing.

    Yeah. I'm in my 30's and gave those apps a shot. Not my experience. More bullshit games than anything else there. My opinion is that if you can't even be bothered to write more than 3 sentences about yourself then you're just not looking for the same thing I am.

    Worse, I think many were just looking for the thumbs up. Self assurance that someone out there thought they were hot.

    I found the serious types were on Ok Cupid, Match, etc. And they'd put some effort into the profiles and such.

    I am happily married and not looking to date, but I do use meetups.com for hikes and finding Patriots fan sports bars to watch games when I am on business trips. There's usually a mix of people and it seems like a great and low-pressure way to meet singles (with similar interests) without actually trying. That said, I imagine if your sole reason for joining these groups is to meet potential dates, you will probably be disappointed; I'd guess the situation has to occur organically to work.
