    My experience was a few years back. Some of the people I met resulted in drama, crazy, and/or trouble. You have to be ready to bail as soon as snakes start emerging from their craniums. I also met 2 women I grew to love. It is a crap shoot. I cannot imagine how the way this virus has limited get-togethers has affected the dating scene.

    How come the 40 mile rule? Have you already struck out with all the women (and maybe 1 tranny :rolleyes:) in your county?

    No.
    When I home it’s my time
    I relax and unwind

    40 miles makes it far enough that it isn’t convenient to just “drop by”.

    I saw a link to that chick's FB page etc. She's a professional attention-getter.

    There are many on there.

    The super hawt chick with the professional pics in her profile telling you to check out her and follow on IG......

    Last night I stayed in Roanoke, VA.
    I probably haven’t stayed there in about four months.

    Same chick hit me up as last time.
    Cute little chick (dwarfism) with big bewbies
    Looking for any race but black
    She was black
    Followed by a lines of talk that set off my BS meter

    But then there are the homely chicks that swipe me every time I drive by.
    I even tell them you swiped me last time and I told you I was just passing through.
    No scam, just desperate.

    I'm long time married, but I'd think blunt honesty is the best approach.

    Even if it narrows your choices down to 1 out of a thousand, that 1 should be good.

    So the app knows your location and bases the hits off of that? Which app?

    Bumble and Tinder
    Hits based on location and age which you setup in your profile.

    Location as in your profile can be seen and you can see.
    I think mine is set at 80 miles.

    If you don’t travel (and don’t live in a big town) you can blow through all the profiles and that’s it.

    You have to start all over with the same people.

    You can only backup one person.
    Pass them by and that’s it
    Gone
    Poof

    Online dating was ok about 10-15 years ago (before everyone had a smart phone) but now, it's more like hunting for the shiniest turd in the sewer.

    Now it's nothing but bots, thots, women with tots and diabolical plots. There are also a few bitter older "career" women who are now butthurt that men don't chase them like when they were in their 20s.

    The wokeness among the current generation of women is enough to send any sane man packing and it is not uncommon to see the words "don't contact me if you are a Trump supporter" on women's profiles.

    I know the past wasn't all sunshine and rainbows but with regard to dating, you past generation fellas had it easy. If you're (happily) married, STAY that way. What awaits you in the singles' world is NOT pleasant.
