    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.
    Like being a car salesman. All about the numbers. Every no is 1 closer to a yes.

    Re: Dating Again

    Well, it's been a few months. A few things I've found: women in their 30's LOVE guys who "have their shit together" and who exercise regularly. Women in their 20's enjoy guys who exercise regularly but also crave attention - something I don't think I have the patience for anymore.

    Decided to get more serious with one girl, 32, so I did the right thing and broke things off with a few other girls I had been dating. This girl fell for me hard, dropped the L-bomb within the first month. We were having fun together and I really saw a future with her. Then I go on vacation to South America and foolishly leave my house keys with her thinking: 1. I have nothing to hide and 2. She's mature enough not to dig. Well, she must have digged because I got back from South America and the girl ghosted me. Thankfully left my keys in my house and doesn't look like she took anything. No idea what she found and she wont even answer me. I'm not even upset about it considering it could be a thousand possibilities for her leaving and a huge sign of instability. I always heard of this ghosting thing but never thought it was so real. Seems very immature. I made it a point to sit down with the girls I ended things with and tell them where I was at.

    Oh well, back at it... good thing I got dinner with two very good looking doctors in Lima the other day who return to LA this weekend...

    I think the bar gets lower with age. At the underside of 40 I discovered women loose their minds over a guy who is employed full time, does the dishes now and then and acts like he knows which end of the broom to sweep with.

    And at 50 they're probably just happy a dude can still get it up

    Re: Dating Again

    All of those things are dead on...I definitely love being single/dating/30's in socal!

    I say join the culture out here, stay single, and enjoy dating around

    Bubba is right too about the bar. Women get less attractive as an option as they get older and men (if they mature, just slower and eventually build wealth) get better. Tough for me to date a girl in her 20's anymore

    Never heard this term before but I GIS'd and it's a thing.

    We used to say, "She's gone 'Radio Silent."

    Happy hunting!

    Man, I might have to try that, dating in your 30s in the south blows, especially when youre not religious.

    In before Randy says he always does it by hand because it works better.

    edit: This was for the chainsaw sharpening thread. Works for both though.

    By hand really is the best way to do it though.
