    The key to dating is to be good at coming up with questions.

    Thankfully, as a history student, those are endless and so I have practice with those questions.

    It's not like the Gods are any better at not boning their mums.

    I've no problem starting conversations(unless their profile is empty, which it usually is on Tinder). I've gotten matches, messsages, and people asked me out before. Never went out with anyone cus I feel and look poopy and don't like going on dates with strangers. They would not like me anyway.

    Gosh, sometimes I realise how freakin’ exhausting date hunting must get.

    It makes me really appreciate how stupidly lucky I got with my current relationship more or less just happening suddenly and skipping right past the seeking part.

    Because holy crap I’m pretty certain I would be no good at doing the song and dance that I’m seeing so many of you strong folks doing. Kudos.

    You are lucky! Haha, that is precisely why I've been single most of my life. I never actively searched, never went on dates, and I need to know the person well and like them *before*going out with them. Recipe for dying alone in modern society :P

    I hear that, I'm extremely shy and it makes meeting new people crazy difficult.

    Almost everyone I know, and all of my friends, found their SOs this way.

    I am beginning to suspect that I'm going to need to date someone in my industry if I have any hope of not being single for the rest of my life, given how much time my profession demands of me and how irregular my hours are. Problem being I have no desire to dip my pen in the company ink and I don't want to deal with post-breakup gossip about me flitting about like so many loose packing peanuts.

    This is a conundrum.

    i also worked in theater and i will pm you my number plus i don't gossip unless you have a tiny weenar and problems with random ejaculations

    because then i will narrate all the tales

    If he turned out to be a surprise 9/11 truther, I totally dated this guy.

    Online dating right now is the worst

    its just person after person who will respond in the worst way

    Just a bunch of short answers that dont actually say anything

    The worst way to start an online conversation with a stranger is to say only:

    "hi"

    This shows me you put in literally zero effort, and after getting multiples of these I have zero interest of having to put in the effort to start a conversation when the other person clearly can't be bothered.

    (this has not happened to me with online dating, but rather dudes-who-can't-take-a-hint on social media). Still, though. Reading something from the person's profile and bringing up a topic is such a better method.

    I got a message back on OKC. What do. My instinct is to crawl under a rock. Please advise.

    (what is with my response rate. Looking at my messages I probably get a reply one in four or so. Granted I basically never get dates out of it but that seems high.)

    That's about what I get. Might actually be a little lower, I haven't crunched the numbers.

    Just, uh, y'know, talk about stuff.

    Ask her if she likes mudkips.

    The best is when one dude doesn't get a reply from the first "hi" so he just repeats it over and over again every time he decides to message again

    I really don't understand this tactic at all.

    It's also a quick way to get blocked!

    I don't understand why people do that.

    I'm usually mortified and crawl into a hole for a while, it's like waving at someone and realizing they're not who you thought they were or going up for a high five and the other person doesn't notice and now you look like an idiot.

    Doing it over and over can only make it worse, you gotta cut your losses and pray to Jesus nobody else saw it.

    it's a numbers game, which... is unfortunate

    it wouldn't be a numbers game if guys didn't do that though

    so it's kind of like a feedback loop

    I met Vivienne before all of this online tinder and dating jazz (well maybe not online dating, but I never tried it) and I would never trade her for the world and I know people complain about it, but I've always had this innate fascination with it and it is not that I don't want to be with Vivienne, but I kind of want to stare into the abyss and give all this online dating jazz is so I know what it is firsthand.

    I met my fiance on Tinder so I am very pro tinder.

    However, I should add that when I was on Tinder, I was in my mid/late 20's in one of the trendiest parts of South London.

    The singles pool was massive there so I had major geographic privilege.
