Speaking of men and relationships, I still have my OKCupid profile up, but I foresee it being disabled by the end of the week. The rejection is doing a job on my psyche.  I do not get one response to the emails I send out. Not one. But then, I respond to literally zero of […]

Name: liz silvia : Question: After a long break from online dating, I decided to test the waters again. I matched with someone on Tinder who stated at the outset that he was interested in casual but ongoing dating. Repeated hookups, in other words. Which I’m ok with. We texted for a few days, and […]

Name: Annabelle : Question: I’m late to the online dating game. I’m 50, cute but not gorgeous, and been doing online dating with moderate success for only about two years. So, I don’t know what’s normal and not normal. Lately, something weird has been happening. Men who contact me first will ask me out, or […]

Is Dating Broken?

I decided last night that we’d no longer organize speeddating events. Ever since Meetup updated their policy and disavowed speeddating events, filling them has been a struggle, never more so than over the last few months.  As I said last week to another woman who organizes speeddating events who has also complained of a slow-down, […]

  There are a number of reasons why I’ve bailed out of dating and writing a dating column, the primary one being that dating gave me agita.  The whole process of messaging  then meeting then performing like a seal with a ball on my nose for a stranger completely fills me with dread. The sense […]

I’m curious to hear if people are still using Tinder, Bumble, OKCupid, etc. From the conversations I’ve had with people over the last couple of months, it seems like there’s a universal ennui of sorts floating around when it comes to online dating.

Last year, I matched with a guy on Bumble. He had a full time job in one field, but was also a fitness trainer. Me being me, I asked him right off the bat (after he suggested we meet) if he was using Bumble to find clients. Bad move. He said he wasn’t, wished me […]

I find myself wanting to get out more and be around people. I joined a few Fitness-related Meetups, but was disheartened to see that I was one of the few “older” members. I suppose I could start a fitness group for 35+ members, but I know it will end up being mostly women that join. […]
