    You'd be impressed by me. I don't need no expensive car. :supergrin:

    My memory. Just for kicks, I just looked at google. When dating, most people’s limits for finding a partner are their state borders. Two-thirds (68%) say they’d look for a partner within their state borders or closer; this includes a third (35%) who wouldn’t look for love outside their neighborhood or city.

    There is a dating expression GU. This means geographically undesirable.

    In looking, it turns out that the average single goes on 41 dates a year. I actually did more when I was actively dating. (Now, I passively date).

    I was single for about 10 years. Spent about 8 of those years on POF. Got so much tail, even I can't believe it. I'm surprised my pecker didn't fall off.

    Been dating someone for 3 years now (a coworker, not an internet 'date'), so no more of that. Sometimes I miss the online dating thing though....

    There's a guy at work that married an online woman from Venezuela, she had a kid. He started cheating on her within a year.

    I met some great chicks on Craigslist back in the day.

    One might have been a keeper but I was working a temporary job in New Hampshire.

    25 miles of me is slim pickings, 50 miles takes me to DC/Northern Virginia. I think the traffic down there and the amount of liberals has me very hesitant to “swipe right.”

    Coworkers are not always a good idea to date.

    You always impress me, sweetie.

    Don't stay away so long. I missed you.

    I was a temporary contract worker. If it all had of gone south, I would have just bailed.

    I have seen another good solution is to date the interns?

    In this case, she became a contract worker also, and we just travel and work together.
