And cowardice. I told myself I'd give online dating a real shot, but it's already looking like it may not be worth the time. However, with covid, I don't even really have too many other choices. May go back to trying online speed dating but thats more expensive.
It's funny how online dating was suppose to make things simpler but ended up making things more difficult. There's a bigger pool to fish from but more to filter out too. Anyways, best of luck in your search.
It just seems like a lot of effort for no real gain tbh. But covid prevents too much else, ugh.
Again, it doesn’t have to be a lot of effort for no real again. It depends on what you do, who you talk to, how long you wait, etc. If you’re just haphazardly going on about online then you might come across trouble and/or disappointment.
Thats not what I'm doing at all but okay. lol
Ugh. I also feel like there are no real sites where this isn't a thing. I haven't tried match yet but a friend told me her experience wasn't that different. She didn't give it a ton of time, but I guess wanted to end her subscription before too much money was spent. I'm on okcupid and it seems like you have to go through a loooooooooooooooooooooooot of frogs. Like way too many.
Yeah, dating sites are completely useless if you are looking for a long-term committed monotonous relationship. I actually did OkCupid for a little while myself and yeah, even if you aren't looking for monogomy it's still a huge waste of time.

If *YOU* don't care about serious relationships, that's totally fine. I won't put down what someone else wants. But yes it actually does matter a lot to many of us. My thing is, own up to your shit. If that's you, then be the best you that you can be. Don't fucking lie about it.
What does your response even mean? My point is that calling something a "serious relationship" is all simply semantics, designed to make a complex subject like human romance and sexual attraction into an easily-mentally-digestible meaningless platitude. If you like the guy, go for it. If you don't, then don't. Stop overthinking everything.
How is it meaningless when the nature of the relationships are completely different? A fuck buddy is a completely different emotional, sexual experience and interaction than a committed, serious, monogamous relationship. The labels exist for a reason and they are not arbitrary when it comes to marking someone who is actually committed to building something with someone, especially when the goal is to get married for many people. But like I said, you do what you want to do. Others won't agree and that's okay too. You can find plenty of women who don't care about committed, serious relationships and are down to just explore anything. Find people who speak your language and match your values - compatibility is key.
No, it isn't, and yes, they are arbitrary. Either you like a person and like spending time around them and like having sex with them, or you don't. That is ultimately what it boils down to.
