investigate. He came back, amused, told me what it was, and then I went to see for myself; it was a bunch of #parents / grandparents with signs that listed their kids' stats (job, university, height, etc.), and then if you, as a #parent / grandparent, saw someone you thought would match your child well, you'd talk to the other parent / grandparent and arrange a date! I don't do #dating apps but this is what I imagine #Tinder would be like IRL, only way better, since it's your #elders doing
Seen in a dating profile (paraphrased):
"I want to constantly be treated like a princess."
You know what? I've treated past partners like princesses, and I plan to do it again.
when someone makes that a request in their profile, I wonder how demanding they are going to be, and I pass.
It's a little bit like the sugar daddy thing. I don't consider myself a "sugar daddy." However, I'm not an asshole, and I've *given* money at times to previous partners, and sometimes I've loaned them significant amounts. My loans have always been repaid, by the way.
However, if someone says "I'm looking for a sugar daddy", I pass.
And yes, sometimes people I matched with opened with a plea for money. I unmatched pretty fast.

Research shows that a growing number of Gen Z want the people they date to post them to social media. What happens if they don’t?

Someone matched with me. I said I hope you're not freaked out by polyamory, and they disappeared, like 20 minutes later, without saying anything.
I wish people would read my damn profile, and not match with me when they see something problematic.
Though, I guess it is possible that they are a scammer. They decided to match with me first. Then looked me up in their database and saw that I'm impervious to scams and decided to unmatch.
I recently changed some of my profile pictures... and maybe that makes detecting me harder??? 🤷

Why is it that men I match with on #dating sites come at me with, "I'm the most boring person on the face of this planet, with no passions or interests or opinions. So what are you doing this weekend?"
Not you, obviously.

"Why Women Are Quietly Quitting Dating — And There’s Nothing We Can Do About It"
Guys, read this. Share with your buddies. I'm hearing this from lots of women: we just can't seem to be bothered to make the effort. And that will cost us. If it isn't already.
"This man fucked me like he *meant it*. And oh God, put me out of my misery now please: if this man turns out not to mean it, I will shatter."
NEW blog, in which I fall face-first into a man, and @stuart_cb manages to capture that exact scared/soft feeling you get when you think you really like someone...
Share it if you like it, pls. I pay my bills with this vulnerability.
Okay, so I've been chatting with a lady on FetLife for a few days. I'm purring on all cylinders.
She's not a flake. She's not a fake. She is neurodivergent, not sure what type. We're on the same page regarding THC consumption.
We agreed to wait until my return from Montréal to meet.
What's not to love?
(On that topic, we also agree on the usage of the verb "to love." We use it more expansively than what Hollywood suggests.)
Seen in a dating profile:
"I got one crotch goblin."
What's a crotch goblin? Are you trying to tell me you got crabs? And only one of them?
"He comes first."
Wait? You're going to prioritize your one crab over me? Did you also name him, and bring him gifts, or something?
(Okay, I know what a crotch goblin is... but why not say "kid" or "boy" or something less derogatory. It also saves space that you can use to put more stuff in your profile.)
I wrote a sweet, sad, pretty, ultimately hopeful ballad for anyone who has ever gone through, or is going through, a tough breakup.

I'm a senior who has been "looking" for a new SO pretty much w/o success for the past year and, yes, I've been "anti-ghosted" and have returned the favor.
Don't know if it's just being a "senior" but people my age don't seem to have a problem telling it "like it is" and I think life is better when you do.
It just needs to be done "gently." 😉
Realizing you're attracted to multiple genders means you might end up #dating people whose #gender is different from what you're used to. Many #bisexual and bi+ #men find that challenging, whether they've dated people before or not. Here's a guide to finding your bearings in the dating world.
"Young Republicans can’t get a date — or a clue as to why"
"Many men are facing real problems related to growing income inequality and a refusal of state and local governments refusing to invest in job retraining and social and emotional learning programs for primary school-age boys. But instead of blaming women for this situation, Republican men who can’t get a date need to realize that it’s their own party that’s holding them back."

Feeld Has A Privacy Problem
I wouldn’t call it a major problem, but it is a problem nonetheless. I tell you how I solve it for myself.
@yourfutureex I do not envy you having to swim in the "dating pool". I know too well the double standards that women face. My sister went through a lot while dating. A few jerks had the misfortune to find me at their doorstep.
Bruh, If I'm visiting you, you've done something wrong to deserve it! LOL!
Hang in there! Not all the guys out there are knobs. Well... all the guys in your area might be. Hopefully you find someone nice!

Okay, so I came across a dating profile today, just before meditation. She was absolutely perfect, hitting all my buttons. I could have just liked her because she's paying for the service, but I instead pinged her, which costs me a little money.
Here's hoping for a reply.
You can probably guess that since I ran into her profile just before meditation, my meditation was pretty messed up. :madjoy:
Lex est une application de petites annonces, pour les personnes queer (surtout lesbiennes et trans). Elle sert surtout d’application de rencontres amicales, amoureuses ou sexuelles et si elle n’est pas encore très connue en France, son format est pourtant hyper agréable et j’adorerais voir plus de gens l’utiliser !
Le fonctionnement de l’application
Les débuts se font très simplement : je m’inscris, je mets une photo si je veux, je me présente en une ou deux phrases, j’indique où je suis. À noter que malheureusement, l’application n’est pas traduite, c’est anglais obligatoire, mais bien sûr les gens peuvent poster en français.
Le haut du profilLa suite du profilOn peut publier notre biographie comme un post si on veut !
J’ai droit à deux filtres : un pour l’âge, un pour la distance maximum. Et là, je vois tous les posts qui ont été faits à l’intérieur de ces deux filtres : considérations existentielles, appels à retrouver quelqu’un qu’on a croisé dans la rue et à qui on n’a pas demandé son numéro, proposition de soirée…
Une capture d’écran de la timeline de l’application
La règle principale de l’application, c’est « No Creeps Allowed », et la modération est franchement solide : je n’ai jamais vu un seul message désobligeant. Par contre, j’ai croisé pas mal de faux comptes en réponse à mes messages, donc vérifiez leur localisation !
L’application est approuvée par la fondation Mozilla pour son respect de la vie privée et des informations personnelles. Il n’y a pas de version web.
Trois personnes que j’ai rencontrées sur Lex
Un mec trans m’a amené à ma première soirée drag king, c’était au bar À la folie à Paris. On s’est revus quelques fois dans l’année qui a suivi, mais je ne l’ai jamais suffisamment remercié de m’y avoir emmené : je n’aurais jamais osé seul et cette soirée-là m’a vraiment ouvert tout un monde de l’expérience queer.
Une personne non-binaire m’a proposé d’aller voir Batman au cinéma en mars 2022. J’ai pas aimé le film, mais j’ai beaucoup apprécié nos discussions avant et après ! Iel a créé un groupe d’escalade pour personnes queer après notre rencontre, parce qu’on avait parlé de notre difficulté à faire du sport (c’était avant que j’aille à Eaux’zons le genre). J’aime pas l’escalade, mais aux dernières nouvelles il y avait une bonne dizaine de membres dont pas mal de personnes trans et non-binaires et ça fait toujours super plaisir à voir.
Et puis enfin, il y a eu cette femme cis dont j’ai failli tomber amoureux. Elle était allemande, faisait un stage dans le coin. Elle a posté une bêtise sur Douglas Adam, j’ai répondu avec une bêtise sur Terry Pratchett, on est allé·es se promener ensemble dans Paris, prendre un verre à la Mutinerie évidemment, on a fait un pique-nique au parc Montsouris et on a brunché vegan un matin. Et puis elle est repartie, mais je pense encore à elle parfois.
(Bonus : je suis tombée sur une copine trans récemment out au gré des posts, ça m’a permis de lui écrire et on a passé des super soirées ensemble, y compris une au Elles Bar.)
Je vous conseille d’installer Lex et d’aller vous y présenter en français, même si vous êtes au milieu de nulle part. Vous verrez, il n’y a pas énormément de monde sur l’application en dehors de Paris, mais c’est à nous d’aller la remplir. L’application est super, ne reste plus qu’à être assez de monde dessus pour qu’elle devienne fabuleuse.Publications similaires : Son canapéLa ladiy*fest à BordeauxLe Elles BarLa médiathèque Glarner à Saint-Ouen
There's always the off chance that nobody is biting, and thus she hasn't had a chance to reveal herself to be a scammer.
"Hey, I liked this guy, but I'm getting no traction... what to do... what to do?"
How about you fill up your profile, dumbass?
" If I genuinely like a guy, I don’t want to turn him into an awkward one-night-stand story or a horrible memory to block out later down the line."
One from this time last year about the importance of saying 'no'
I ran into the most terrible dating profile ever created:
* There's a name, a distance, and "39 Woman, Bisexual."
* One picture.
* The picture is solid black.
* No profile text whatsoever, no desires, no interests, nothing.
I'm wondering if someone is conducting a test. :catthinking:
"Let's create the most terrible profile we can think of and see how many fish we can catch!"
So the one girl that I matched with yesterday is still there but hasn't talked to me in like 17h. That does not look good.
1. She had a grueling day at work.
2. She changed her mind.
3. She's a scammer that's been caught by the platform, and they are asking her to verify her identity.
Option 3 is a distinct possibility, I've had a few people with whom I matched. We talked, they went silent for a while, and then their account was deleted. (Yes, I can tell the difference between people unmatching from me, and people who get their account deleted.)
I still have one of the straight person that liked me in my prospects (different from the person I'm talking about above0. I'm waiting for her to disappear into the ether when the platform decides that she's a scammer.
I know what I sound like. The fact of the matter, however, is that nothing good has ever happened for me when I matched with #straight people.
I used to match with them, only to discover that they were scammers, crackpots, or some other nonsense. Nothing good ever came out of it.
I'm not saying no straight person can love a #pansexual man. My ex-wife is a case in point. However, these folks are rare.
Yet another straight person who likes me. I'm thinking "scammer" again. A reverse picture search revealed nothing, so I'm keeping her in my likes without liking her, like the previous straight "person" who liked me.
We'll see what happens.
On the topic of people looking like models...
I don't look like a model myself. I look more like some sort of unholy union of Wilford Brimley (RIP), Santa Claus, and... I don't know... a bearded guy younger, and a bit slimmer than the both of them. (I still got a gut, though.)
So when someone who looks like a model likes me, I go "dafuq???" I'll also say that none of my partners looked like models, yet they were absolutely ravishing to me.
Generally, I prefer people who don't look like models. I'm quite fine with imperfections, wrinkles, scars, guts, etc.
‟Ghosting Has Gone Way Too Far”

NEW blog: I got set up on a blind date. Like in a FILM
I’m so unsure about this post. I don’t think it’s brilliant writing, but it captures a mood.
Who do I date?
"You truly can laugh me into bed. You can laugh me anywhere. I get that spark from humour and conversation, rather than looks. Yes, your eyes and smile and pretty dick and beautiful tits will make my mouth water; how you make me laugh is the ignition"
"His intense curiosity about *what* I liked and *how* I liked it was the thing that convinced me he was worth meeting."
NEW POST TIME!
I was inspired by @girlonthenet 's post on alternative relationship escalators (https://www.girlonthenet.com/blog/alternative-relationship-escalator/) to think about who I date and how, in the context of my #polyamory.
'Who' is the first part, with 'How' to follow soon!

NEW BLOG! The final part in the trilogy that began with me asking out a cute flirty guy who worked in my shop, and led to one of the loveliest first/second date combos ever. With huge thanks to him for restoring my faith in #dating as a whole, here’s how our third date went: https://www.girlonthenet.com/blog/emotional-honesty-faith-in-dating/ #emotion #honesty
I don't have a lot of pics of myself, which I know will be important at some point. ;)
First, read my profile and pinned Toots, then peruse some of what I've posted.
If all of that works for you, then message me and pictures will be forthcoming. ❤️
Now that Justin is newly single, those confused fellas who were all in Ottawa pledging their carnal lust for the Prime Minister could maybe go back and try to woo him again?
Maybe take flowers this time, and offer him a Kebab first.
“Enough about me. How about you?”
A couple of weeks ago, I told you about a man I'd chatted up in real life, after a year's worth of mutual flirting whenever I went into his shop.
Here's how our first date went...

"Remember: the point is not to get a 'yes', the point is just to ask."
I asked out a man in real life. No apps, no drinks, no friends to whisper 'my mate fancies you.' I just went up to a hot guy and asked him to date me.
Here's what happened...

This is our #introduction post for all new followers. We are a grassroots research project investigating #Viking Age and #Medieval #archaeology #dogs and #horses in Ireland and Britain. We are using cutting edge technqiues like #aDNA , #isotopes, #bones measurements (size/shape analysis) and #radiocarbon dating on dog bone samples. Our website is www.vikingdublindogs.ie and we are running a crowdfunding campaign to raise costs of #dating at the moment. If you can help please do and please RToot
I really wish that #ProPublica would revisit articles like this now that the US has changed its law and nullified many terms of severance agreements.
I am in Canada - So don't look at me!
@yawnbox That's because we are evil at the #dating sites, and although we want to claim that our aim is to get you off, that's nonsense... Retention is excellent and we'll always keep sending you new people unless both of you disable your profiles. And how would you know the other person had if you disabled yours?
#OkCupid used to have a mechanism for two people who had matched to mutually disable, but that is loooong gone.
@Decad3nce I know the pain :) - And it's like that with #jobs / #JobSearch now too; especially at the VP and above level. If you aren't working on your #LinkedIn #SEO every day people just forget you exist - But I can't force myself to do that because it seems so shallow and fake.
So I am really glad I don't have anything to market other than myself.
With regards to finding real and kinetic relationships later in life, I would just like to say that the sheer number of #dating site profiles seeking "a partner in crime" led me to believe I would have a lot more spontaneous allies in shitstomping this vending machine.
All the dating apps I've tried seem to have only two kinds of women: women I want nothing to do with, and women who want nothing to do with me.
Big €€€ idea for a new #dating app: No algorithms, just a shitload of networking moms all over the world who do online matchmaking, hooking people up. The dating app company is responsible for verifying the mom status of the ladies, the tech infrastructure, maybe the billing but not the matchmaking process.
Go ahead, tell me that wouldn't be better than what is available right now, I dare you
