    Nehor Rants About Online Dating

    Politics are so divisive these days. I miss moderate politicians where it wasn’t such a big deal if people voted differently. Or maybe I miss moderate people so that it wasn’t such a big deal. I definitely miss civility. I dropped off all but one site and that one doesn’t have any action on it. Taking a bit of a breather from trying to find someone for a bit—I mean it I met someone, that would be great, but just not going to be actively seeking for a few weeks, months....whatever.

    Yeah, it was me. We did try to prank the board. It was forever ago. Probably over 10 years ago.

    Talking to guys is just exhausting, until you meet one that can have an actual conversation that is a two way street, those are nice, just rare.

    Oh and He-Man singing the 4 Non-Blondes song totally made my day and made coming out of hiding on this site again worth it. Now I will go back to just reading. 🙂

    Nehor Rants About Online Dating

    So usually when I start talking to guys online, I try fun questions...favorite cartoon character growing up....if building a treehouse, how would it look and what would they have in it...just icebreaker stuff. Today a guy responded that I should be asking him about him. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Went on a date with a guy that told me break ups are worse than the death of a spouse....I have no idea why someone would want to compare those two. They are both bad in their own right. Totally used my religion to get a guy to rescind his date offer. I wasn’t interested and didn’t want to hurt his feelings and knew he wouldn’t date someone LDS. Went on a date with a guy who asked me if I could still have kids at my age. I suppose it is a legit question (I am 40), but took me by surprise. Can’t even begin to tell you how many men I have been on dates with that don’t do anything or go anywhere. The reason...they don’t have someone to do it with. Come on, we are in our 40s, if you want to go to the art festival and can’t find someone to go with, you to alone. I mean, I get going with others is way better, but I am not going to quit living just because I am single or my friends are busy. Had a guy who I told I didn’t feel a connection with have a temper tantrum. Had an online stalker who legit had kidnapping and rape on his rap sheet (along with a host of other things). I had already told him I wasn’t interested. Hmm...maybe I am being picky, not with the rap sheet guy, but the others. That being said, I do usually go on 1st dates. And 90% of the time, we do something free so it is just costing time.

    Ok, I need to read this entire thread, but I started the joys of online dating and ack! It is exhausting. I ask a question, they answer, I comment about their answer and I ask another question, they answer again. This goes on for 3-4 questions and I usually just give a final response back to an answer. I am sure half of them are baffled on why I quit asking questions because they seem to truly enjoy the questions and answering them.....but if they are actually interested, wouldn’t they ask me something? I do give credit for the ones who answer and follow it up with an “and you”. Dates with LDS guys are few and far between due to where I live. Dates with non-LDS are plentiful, but just tend to have one sided attraction (theirs or mine, doesn’t really matter if it isn’t mutual). Oh and the stories....so many.
