Got played online dating
Od is better I think if emotional energy is put on hold for a little while and it is treated with a respectful and fun outlook.
Very few people that you are likely to meet will fulfil your ideal as 'the one'.
I've given it up entirely tbh - my garden is getting a lot of attention (and that isn't even a euphemism, sadly).
There was an interesting article online a while back about a new generation of dating sites designed by women - things like, men have to show their photos but women's photos are hidden until you choose to show them; men can't send the first message, only women can; or women get to leave public feedback on men's profiles (that one sounds evil...) I'm holding out for them to launch in the UK!
It's so different from when you're young free and single.
Especially if you have been off the single scene for a while and not feeling mega confident.
I think that's the best scenario I'd like to create for him You've just had a run of bad luck. That was the reason I dumped the guy - if I had promised not to dump him after sex (which I would never do, so I don't know why women still expect men to do this) I wouldn't have made myself see him again just so as not to hurt his feelings or stick to my word.Yet the last message, which was a reply to my asking when he was free, was him saying he had started his course and things would be full on this week and the next.
