i have such a specific dating pool that i probably can't use tinder and the like....i need some very narrow dating sites. i have a good feeling they exist when i care to start looking again. i am not exactly approachable on the street since i have a stroller with me 99.9% of the time.

and it's not just parenthood that makes me picky -_- i know i'm not some great catch either so at the moment i think it's just better to stay single until my mind and body demand otherwise. then i'll check out some online dating and hope for the best. i've never really had trouble starting relationship but i also only attracted one type of partner, which is not my type anymore. if nothing else it will be an interesting experience!

It's sad that craigslist casual encounters no longer exists.

I had finally given up on being with anyone and had formed this awesome plan for myself, to spend my life alone, studying philosophy and law. And then, my now-husband approached me while I was using an atm.

But, that was before smart phones.

Itís weird thinking that in this new era of internet socialising, we might never have met.

Thanks, I appreciate the sentiment, but this isn't about me. Please direct your support to MyOneAndOnly who really shouldn't have to deal with that kind of bullshit here.

It was just one person, but somehow that one person seems to feel more welcome to share their prejudices directly at others than some people do sharing their valid personal thoughts and experiences.

Food for thought.

he's not more welcome. he's just as welcome at the moment, which i expect will change. we can't police people off the board before they say shit that crosses the line to get them banned

I'm sorry, I don't mean to sound like i'm demanding the mods to intervene in a direct fashion.
What i'm trying to say is that I think there's more that we as a community could do to make it less welcoming to toxic behavior.

thing is, no one seems to be encouraging the behavior. besides fuzzy, all of the sleaze has been banned afaik. it's literally one dude who made a comment

but anything we can do as a community to discourage toxic behavior and encourage inclusiveness and a feeling of safety is definitely welcome

At the same time this forum is dedicated to the band of a guy who seemingly wants this kind of people as his fans, so maybe i'm totally off base here.

yes. they crush your soul.

I think it's also different for people over 35. By 40 most people are off dating apps.

You putting a negative connotation on men isn't exactly helping you make friends. It's portraying you as a sexist.

Maybe its your profile that is "soooo bad" as to quote yourself. Thought about that? How does it feel to be on the other side of things? This is what you sound like. And I have no problem with what you choose to be, however it does seem as if you do have a problem with 90 % of the population.

I hope you can be better.
haha yes!

Good call. You can't properly give yourself to someone else if you're not authentically proud of you who are in your mind in the moment. Keep striving for greatness!

That's not fair. I don't think Puzzle said anything that was crossing any decency boundaries. MyOneAndOnly was being awfully presumptuous and stereotyping a large group of people, she was bound to be called out by someone.

She was talking about her experiences and doesn't need someone who can't understand her situation to tell her how dare she have the feelings she has. There is time for social commentary and this is not it.

You know (well, puzzledfuzzleroes doesn't because they're fucking dense) how the main criticism of the cries of "not all men" is that you shouldn't have to say it, because it's implicit that not all men do the thing that is being complained about anyway?

My One and Only was actually explicit with how she was referring to the men ON TINDER and other various dating apps, and she still got cut down by false SJWs that jump at any opportunity to be a fucking hypocrite.

That's interesting...I wonder if it's partly a generational thing or if it's just a demographic thing.

My friend, now 44, has had a horrible time with dating apps since her divorce. I think I would rather die alone that contend with online dating. It's really hard though, to find time - she's working full time and has two kids, so she doesn't have time to join a tennis club or anything (like she did, ironically, when she was married and a stay at home mum).

It seems like a lot of straight guys in their 40s are not looking for a woman in her 40s, either - most of them are looking for a woman in their 30s or even 20s - basically as young as they can go. So that limits the dating pool, too. Not many 44 - 50 year old guys are looking for a 44 year old single mother, even if they themselves are 44 year old single fathers.

Yeah, idk. I've come across a very large number of 40+ aged people who are either still single/freshly divorced/widowed and I see no reason why they couldn't be meeting others on apps, other than maybe them feeling there's a stigma associated with it.

It'll be interesting to see if the 20 and early-30 year olds from today will increase the use of dating apps in 40+ demographic once they reach their 40s.
