I definitely need to work on my confidence. I will admit that.
I remember when I was younger I was at this party at my friends and there a guy in his 30s, he was short and quite overweight. But he was funny as hell and quick. I was a bit envious of that honestly lol. And he had a cute girlfriend!
So i learned to develop my humor more over the years
You definitely have a great sense of humor Sir Level!
That’s good advice working on your sense of humor to get some interesting women interested in you is a smart idea
I’ve found all my husbands online Craigslist.
Try Amazon for the next one - they have a better return policy.
When I was younger I was interested in someone others called ugly.
He was bald , overweight and short and so forth but he was interesting, intelligent,real funny, charismatic.
I recently met someone in the parking lot .
I never meet people and am always at home so that’s so unusual that that happened.
He was drunk and I was sober.
We are friends but we did have sex.
We plan on meeting again.
My x boyfriends I met most of them online.
One x chose me simply because he liked my smile.
My boobs were to small for his taste but he oversaw that because he liked my smile.
Well just wanted to say 5’6 isn’t a bad height. I’m 5’2 I wouldn’t want a 6ft dude.
Ever since getting sz I’ve had zero success with online dating. Most women want a man they can travel with and will be a provider for them and a family man.
Eating ramen in a section 8 apartment is a hard ticket to sale.
You’ll eventually find a great woman Monte. You have a great personality!
I’m probably gonna take down my Bumble profile. That site sux.
Same experience here
I’ve never tried Bumble before. I doubt I’ll try it. Just gonna have to meet my dream woman in person. I kinda want to join a running group.
I think a running group sounds like a great idea. I find people put up a front a lot online.
Dating for me is like tkmaxx shopping.
It’s a headache to do, but you eventually get to a good find.
Well I met my soon to be ex bf on bumble. He was very accepting of my mental health stuff. Including the homicidal thoughts when stressed. I was just honest and upfront. Yet, there was a deal breaker for me.
Overly clingy, which could lead to codependancy cause he never worked on the clinginess even though others broke up over that with him. It reminds me too much of my ex wife. So I’m listening to my alarm bells and severing the tie.
Plus, I still need to work out kinks on myself. Like putting up walls, being more open in communication. I tend to think others can read my mind. And continue to work on setting healthy boundaries.
No. Doesn’t work.
I have had one healthy longer term relationship the last ten years. I met this person on a single parents holiday. Not online. I prefered this. It was not someone I would have connected to on a dating site…I would have “skipped” his profile. But now I had time to feel how I felt around him, to see how he acted with me and others, get to know him without pressure (I didn’t want to date in front of my kid anyway, we did that only after the holidays ended).
Online dating…I attract guys there, that I really do not want to attract. Not even for a single e-mail. And I find it hard to present myself in a good way. Or know who genuinely is a nice person to date with, versus who has a smooth presentation (pics, language skills). I prefer if things develop slowly and naturally.
Online dating is not for me.
People you run into online you might not like them in real life and vice versa.
Some people are comics IRL. It’s hard to stay low around them. They lift your spirits. Make you laugh. Play pranks. This doesn’t always translate in their dating profiles.
Some people have great text game. They seem cool online. But when you meet them it is not always what you expected.
