To be honest, I'm pretty done with online dating. Don't get me wrong. I have met many nice people on here and had pleasant interactions. But it just seems to set up this dynamic where:
- it's a competition. But it's not. There is no such thing as best. Just better for/in certain conditions. We're all human. But flipping from one profile to the next encourages this comparing and judgement.
- because of the incredibly rude way men seem to talk to women on here (for which I am truly sorry), there is even more suspicion of each other than is already warranted by meeting each other first in virtual space, itself a weird enough premise.
Would love to meet someone I could relax and be myself around. I'm ready for that. Not sure it will happen on here. If you'd like to contact me feel free, but I think I'm otherwise not gonna use this site much more.
Not looking for any more coffee dates, those feel too much like job interviews. I get so little free time, would like to do something fun.
