Glad to hear it!

I'll still probably never use online dating, because I feel like I'd be better at the interview than the application. Especially because these applications require photos.

But you look good in photos, so maybe it's a good platform for you.

Being gay is okay, but it's funny to be called gay when you're actually straight because why would you ever want to be gay, amirite, guys?

I guess it's Friday night, and I've got a date tonight. I was also supposed to have one yesterday, but I had to cancel because I was sick. So, I guess it'll be next week. And then there's another woman I'm supposed to schedule things with next week.

The fact that I can only seem to get a steady stream of dates during the semester makes me really worried for when I graduate. Pretty much, if nobody likes me within the next year, I'll be applying to be a clergyman.

And I've already been doing my undergrad for too long, so half of the people I talk to turn out to be first-years who just turned eighteen.

I'm mostly putting it down to this. I only used one photo from that photo shoot. Didn't want to overdo a single aesthetic.

But then you get a job and it's pretty much the same dynamics as school/uni but with older people.

I haven't been on "a date" since I was 18 and it was awful and awkward anyway

Welp, looks like tonight's date was also cancelled. Which actually works out just fine, because though I am excited to see this girl, I just don't feel like getting up to anything tonight and am not in a "date" mood.

Good strategy. I have a precise ratio of photo types in my head for if I ever do just give in and do online dating

First photo: well-taken headshot, maybe professionally done, or at least done by a friend good at portrait photography (they can't all be this kind of photo, or else I'll look either fake, or like I'm trying too hard/taking myself too seriously)

Second photo: just a photo taken with me hanging out with friends, to prove that I've got a social life. Candid, or semi-candid. Having this follow the portrait will remove any ambiguity as to which person is me.

Third photo: me engaging in a hobby, to demonstrate what my interests are.

Fourth photo:
this one's a freebie. It can be any photo that fits within the first three categories.

Fifth photo: something really silly to demonstrate that I have a sense of humour and can laugh at myself.

I dunno, very few workplaces are as populous as a university campus. The dating pool seems a lot smaller, and you don't have the benefit of anonymity to have that extra bit of control over first impressions.

Even at my workplace, there's not really anybody I'm interested in.

Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I tend to go on dates with people. If I see somebody who strikes my fancy, I approach them, get into a small chat, and if I'm keen on them, ask for their number. Then I text them something like "hey there, girlie; what's say you and I go grab a malt at Pop's diner?" If she says "It'd be swell grabbing a malt with an upright fella like you," we go for a malt and we have a gas.

DK, I think you think too much, and I think this isn't the first time I've told you that

i haven't had to face dating via text given i was late to the cellphone game and i don't put any stock into it. i was pursued on myspace once. dude asked me out at a party and gave me his number and i forgot all about it and ended up tossing the cigarette pack his number was on. several days later he had messaged me on myspace saying i broke his heart and the flowers he bought me were in the trash, but he was obviously lying and trying to be cute.

on our first date we both got busted for public intoxication for falling asleep drunk in his car in the parking lot of a 24 fitness both in our respective seats. we ended up dating for 6 months and then it was complicated for a year until i found out he and a best friend of mine were fucking and it wasn't complicated anymore.

don't feel sad for me; that whole thing ended ten years ago.

But photo five demonstrates that I am fun and casual, and that I don't make too much of a big deal out of anything.

Jeez man, it's only been, what, a year and a half? Give yourself a break. You're doing fine.

typical to my personality I don't want show up in people's feeds unless I have some really sick photos of me totally doing stuff

however I haven't any friends or really want any

I liked the situation of just having a significant other, that satisfied my social requirements =(

That's kinda my fear. Having few or no social connections beyond a significant other. Which probably sounds funny, given how I'm always whining about nobody being interested in me.

Like, something just seems really unhealthy and tenuous about having another human being be your entire world.

I don't even like the idea of being one of those couples that does literally everything together. I think that's why I'm drawn to women with strong senses of identities, and their own interests in passions. I kind of like the idea that we would always have our own things going on, and we would support each other in them, but we would still be independent.

Also, yeah, social impression management is one of the reasons I got rid of Facebook. I just didn't feel I had anything to "show" on there. Even just having an Instagram for my photography is bringing back some of that social media anxiety, and I'd get rid of it if there were any other platform I could upload my photography to that people actually still use (nobody gives a shit about Flickr and DeviantArt is just creepy).
