This is super solid advice. What she did is shady and unacceptable. Never stand for that kind of thing, because itís never a one time thing. And certainly donít stand for it in/before a first meet. You certainly did the right thing by bailing, and whatís better is that you know that.

Re: Online dating thread

Texting back "lol" is fine. Ignoring replies is kind of childish. Blocking anyone, ever, for any reason, is unhelpful and unwise.

Re: Online dating thread

There are right times to block abusive people who wonít take no for an answer, or if youíre a particularly weak person who canít say no to the wrong person, blocking them is a way to make sure you donít have the option to potentially let yourself get hurt or whatever. I block telemarketers, but thatís pretty much it, but I think there are instances where it can be a utilized tool.

Re: Online dating thread

Just found this thread.

I’m getting back into the scene from two back to back long term relationships. The game seems a lot different. Girls have been way more flaky. I usually just move on and the play the numbers game if they don’t respond. I have good photos and my openers are always unique and never creepy and I’ve even tried giving chances to ones I probably wouldn’t in the past but even they flake too lol. I get a good amount of responses and numbers and even dates or just hooking up but nothin too serious. Any good advice for any part would be great? Openers? Leaks? What’s changed in the last few years? I feel so out of place and I just want to try and figure out what I’m not doing right. Thanks.

Re: Online dating thread

Here's what's changed, social media culture has fostered a need for likes/dopamine drips multiple times per minute. Women use the apps for their dose of attention and choose a physical partner based on trust & familiarity. That's why when she's really lonely and needs the surefire thing, it's usually with an ex and rarely someone new.

Keep playing the numbers game until you find an outlier. That's what they do with us. I think I read a report that the average woman has 80-100 unread messages per week across dating apps.

They have too many options.

Iím generally a pretty reasonable guy who can pick up on cues and nothing infuriates me more than the ďsilent treatmentĒ. Itís like just blow me off with a curt one sentence statement and Iíll back off donít just ignore me

Thanks for this. I think youíre spot on. Also noticed a small leak with the ages too. I was listening to a podcast about this topic and they mentioned 18-22 they have no idea what they want yet in life. Once they hit 23,24,25. Then youíll notice significantly less flaking. Pretty much have fun but donít get too committed with that younger age range. So Iím going to look at that filter and see if it helps.

Foatie, any update on the tall one? Seemed like the most promising of the batch IMO

Re: Online dating thread

it's good to get confirmation that what I was thinking about the game is true... unfortunately that dynamic exists across the age spectrum, at least in LA. I'm in my 40s

I would like to contribute, finally.

Even if you've hit it off in chat and she's talking about sexing you up and enjoying how hot she's making you, do not talk about screwing someone else because of it. I imagine this is a rookie move, but I'm throwing it out there in the midst of a 90 minute chat.

I've got the supertanker turned 90 degrees but there's still ice in the water and we're far from home

It's super entertaining! I'm subscribed, and have literally never even had an online dating profile.
