I have realized from friends that the whole aspect of online dating has become really toxic due to ghosting etc. and that this is quite harmful. When I started dating again, I tried to stay clear of such behavior and it worked for me. I only contacted people I really felt attracted to and which I found interesting, instead of writing to too many people. Also was honest about my interests, body etc.

So, no it hasn't changed me. But I understand, that it has become harder and it becomes more and more a spiral of bad experiences.

I gave up on dating apps and paused all my profiles. Can’t handle one more first date talking about the same things and answering the same questions. It just feels so fake now, like I’m not being myself, I’m playing my first date character.

Instead of trying to meet someone random, I decided to pursue my cute neighbour I’ve had a crush on for over a year 💞 At least I know he and I vibe! Wish me luck haha.

M1, you said he doesn’t initiate communication although you are having sex and only went out a time or two. That’s low effort.

I started to video chat people to start instead of texting forever, it is a game changer. I get to have real conversations with people; feel the vibe before deciding I would go on a date with them. F here.

M here, it is tough to weather sometimes. I've been hitting up some restaurants and bars because I'm so tired of the apps lately, end up chatting with the bartenders usually, occasionally meet some cool people. Don't know what your area is like but maybe that could work for you too SM1.

Indeed! And you don't need to drink, you can do seltzers or virgin drinks.

It changed for me. Now I get more date invites (maybe because I’m busier and less focused on who invites me) and I have to squeeze time to meet some of them. More than half don’t worth a date though(sounds mean, just not a good fit), so definitely video chat to save some time.

I've heard this before. I've even heard this from women.

I have no idea how I give the impression of not needing a man. What can I do about this? Being home alone is starting to make me sad.
