I answered over 800 of your questions, but you can't come up with adequate matches.
The dating pool is too murky here.. this is THE place where married men work out their ambivalence on single women, trying to see if they could toe the line of infidelity without actually being unfaithful.
Now that Facebook can find people by your contacts, you can't give out your number to guys for talking.
Too many scammers creating fake accounts, and are now bypassing the the filters. They write "hi pretty" and I recoil in disgust without fail, and they always add in incorrect language "I will like to know you" - same incorrect language 5-10 messages daily from the scammers. They ask how long I've been on the site, and ask how I'm doing with it. A real man wouldn't ask about his competition. A real man has better things to do than waste a woman's time.
------ and lately zero available men, just married guys, scammers, and abusive guys. Technically, I've been sexually assaulted by two dates as well, but is that really OKC's fault???
I feel used by guys who were never honorable to begin with. They just only wanted someone to write to, never to date. Someone to work on their gnarled psyche with, but did they ever get better?
I've experienced harassment here as well. The army dudes, or just ones who write from far away and then ask for money have killed what could have been a great way for singles to meet.
Loved you while it was fun!
I love art galleries and museums, road trips, outdoors, nights out at quiet places so we can talk. Happy. Productive. Active. Spiritual. Open. Warmth.
Old fashioned lady with a modern twist, seeking a gentleman with an interesting perspective on life, who also has time for hanging out together in person, and is open to exploring the more nuanced parts of relationships.
The best love relationships happen when you're on top of your game, but also open for feedback.
When not working: seeing friends, planning adventures, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, cycling, swimming, genealogy, studying for therapy license.
