I would say that modern dating is a crock in general. You cannot show the slightest imperfection or otherwise do anything that would make you seem remotely human; the moment someone gets the impression that a successful dating relationship may actually involve some work/effort, and may not always have your loins aquiver, you will be dumped and the next person in line will be queued up.


Yup, exactly. Dating nowadays is an exercise in absolute soul-shatering reflection on how imperfect you are. I guess that was always like that, but it has been accentuated by all the 2.0 shit. But if your circle of friends and aquantices is closed, it's either this or drunk clubbing boning, and I don't know what's worse for your ego.

And yeah, poor ladies, jesus fucking christ are we dudes a bunch of morons.

People bemoaning the dating/relationship scene need to bone up on mind control techniques.

Jeez, all I was trying to say was that I don't like online dating.
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

Or mind on their bone-up control!

I had blast online dating more than a decade ago. I gave OKC a try when it started, total waste of time, no idea if it got better or worse.

I suppose my feeling these days is that the world is full of cool people/women* (just take a look around you) and the internet is full of wankers...

*Remember: women are people too.

Agreed, the people are out there, the only obstacle is one's own self-doubt.

I heard good things about Bumble from some straight ladies who are legit catches. The key mechanic is that women have to message first; dudes can't initiate.

I read that post and tried to figure out how FM bumble figured into this. I mean she is a legit catch but how would other straight ladies know?

Ha! I bet. Not sure if that one was operating when I was using dating apps 2-3 years ago, but Tinder was the depressing one for me (a year and a half of daily use resulted in 2 first dates). OKC was a goldmine. Happn and Hinge were ineffective.

I met my current girlfriend on okc, and we've been together over 10 months. So, NC from me.

Thanks for the responses. I reconnected with my most recent ex on my last OkC excursion (we had known each other through a mutual friend many years ago) and we then dated for almost a year, so for that I would have to say NC. My experiences before her were not great but I am (reluctantly) considering giving it another go. Before this turns into a GD loveline thread, I declare that I shall abstain from voting for now and see how things go.

In the meantime, I may make more funny T-shirts, and I'll let you know when my band's new release is out.

Stay super sweet, have a great summer.

I got really drunk the other night and made an incredibly snotty, "fuck you" kind of profile and it's been the most effective one I've ever made. I have a date tomorrow and have chatted up far more people on it than I have before. I don't get it.

Perhaps it gives an impression of confidence, which is often found to be attractive.

It means being sex-positive, and being educated on the science and art of boning.

A sex nerd is a person that doesn't realise that everybody else has also read some stuff about sex.

A great aphorism I heard the other day about dating (particularly online profiles): "Some people wave a flag because they're empty vessels"

OKCupid is great! I have just had two good dates in two days! No fireworks or anything, but nice guys with no douche-vibes, and pleasant conversations. Age-appropriate dudes too, mind you. Not crap.

My profile pic is of me flipping off the camera, and the second line of my self-summary is a joke about genocide, sort of ("slightly to the left of the Khmer Rouge"). My hostility-milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, apparently.
