females lack quality matches and males lack quality and quantity. cause females get swamped with random guys throwing themselves at them, but guys struggle to get a lot of matches. for women it’s like trying to find clean water in the swamp, but for guys it’s like trying to find clean water in the desert. there was a poll, that women find 80% of guys as below average in looks… and males find half of women as below average. but both sexes put too much emphasis on looks. for guys, you have to be like a model who is also a lawyer and stand up comedian… just to exaggerrate. and then when it looks like a bunch of people who don’t want to put much effort in. a few word replies. or you get going and then get ‘ghosted’, where they just stop responding. online dating can suck these days.
Dating isn’t easier for women.
Especially with this illness.
Not everything is based on looks, but a good bit is.
You have to be attracted to a person.
But you don’t have to be a lawyer, comedian or model.
I think you’re making a lot of generalizations because of your frustration.
I went on a lot of dates. It was a struggle. I found my match though.,
Good for you it’s always heartening to hear stories of people actually finding relationships through dating I’ve only successfully had relationships with people from School the people I meet IRL historically we’re pretty weird
its not easy for me to be at a bar and just walk up to someone and talk, talking to someone online helped to break the ice. unfortunately I met a lot of people who weren’t looking for proper relationships but I found someone who was.
I met my current partner on okcupid, we’ve been together nearly two years now and we’re both very happy now. I’ve dated some others I met online but it didn’t work out
Me and my partner are opposites,
usually with online dating the person would say lets meet within a few days. my partner took 2 months!!! I was like are we meeting or not…
Good analogy, I feel it’s true.
Met my wife online in 1998 (I think, it’s getting pretty far back!) back when online dating was still freaky. Married in 2000. Still married in 2023 and have an anniversary coming up in July. Disclaimer: I’m very high-functioning and was working full-time along with owning a part-time business when I met my wife. She would have not had any interest in me if I had been on assistance and living with my parents. If you’re someone that looks like you need care, the odds are against you unless you’re looking for someone in the same boat.
Yes, it can work.
Met mine in 2015 off plentyoffish. Been together ever since.
It worked for us were an excelllent match
Also very high functioning.
She likes to make food and you like to eat it?
Online dating is hard when your a short man like myself. In my opinion probably close to 99% of women prefer a man taller than 6 feet. I’m only 5’6.
I acknowledge that it is a challenge my man but where did you get that statistic from?
I edited my comment, It’s not a fact that 99% of women like tall men, just my opinion.
I mean it’s true that you might have to look for a shorter woman because of it but there are a lot of women under five four who are willing to be with men in your height I’m sure I know a number of short men who I grew up with who ended up with short women
I do want to add something though. Women are allowed to have preferences. Nothing wrong with a woman wanting a tall man. It wouldnt be fair of me being atttacted to a certain type of women and then bashing a woman for liking a certain type of man.
It just sucks being short though.
Sure height is a perimiter, but there are more important things. Maybe men are intimidated by taller women. You may need a certain charisma to make height become less relevant for a woman. Just a thought.
I likezz da foodz
If your 5’1 date a woman thats 4’11. Your good to go!
Honestly i see lots of shorter dudes with gfs.
Let your confidence shine through and youll be all good.
