From now until further notice, I’m mostly going to be re-posting popular posts from the past. Don’t act like the ‘chubby’ girls or the ‘older’ girls get NO action online. Then there was the 10% that were from the guys from Amsterdam or London asking me how the weather was over here.If a letter comes with a particularly interesting angle, I will post it and write a response. Do some homework: ask all of your chubby and older girlfriends how many emails they get online. Another 20% were from the guys who opened with, “Hey beautiful/sexy/love those lips” or some other socially inept comment.After matching on Bumble, a woman has 24 hours to initiate a conversation before the connection disappears forever. Bumble has a feature that allows you to swipe for potential new friends.Similarly, on Coffee Meets Bagel (named because the creators wanted the batch of new matches to be something women look forward to every day, like a coffee break. Bagels) women choose who gets to talk to them from among the men (or “bagels”) who have already liked them.I’m too old to appeal to most guys on OKCupid, Match, or Tinder and I’m far too young at heart to sign up for “Our Time.” I was about to close my Bumble account, but they suckered me into their new “boost” feature.For a month they show me which guys have shown interest in my profile.It’s a harmless curiosity that I find entertaining. Anywho, towards the end of my last soul-crushing, pseudo-relationship, I visited a tarot card reader.I went as a sort of cleansing ritual before the turn of the new year.
One guy showed me a woman’s profile and she was absolutely stunning.
If your friends are no longer setting you up, it’s time to take matters into your own hands. Discard any photos that are over two years old and please don’t lie about your weight, height, and age.
Seeing a frown on your date’s face if they don’t recognize you when you arrive isn’t a good experience for either of you.
General profiles all tend to blend together and can be viewed as boring or too typical.
You can make your profile shine by being specific about what you’re looking for.
If you’re a millennial dating in 2017, chances are you or someone you know is on some kind of app.
