August 9th, 2017

4 Comments

Name: AC : Question: Yesterday when I logged into my Okcupid account, there was a notice from the site administrators stating they have removed the “Who’s Viewed Me” section from the site.  While I don’t remember the exact wording, their reasoning was along the lines of “now only the users who really want to contact […]

August 7th, 2017

I hate being unmatched on Tinder. Hate it.  You get the little push notification of a mutual match, you swipe on it to get to your inbox annnnddd….they’re gone.  The only worse feeling is getting the match notification, giving it a few minutes to allow them the time to swipe through your photos and unmatch […]

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 […]

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, […]

Is He Assertive or Just Angry?

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 […]
