Holding out for the "perfect" partner means being alone forever.Hey, did you watch the absolutely fucking brilliant on HBO? (Take your mind off V-Day by binging on it tonight.) There's a scene/confrontation in Episode 7 (“Real As F*ck”) that I'm thinking you need to see.That one petered out almost as quickly as the rest.I certainly didn’t set out to meet as many women as possible, an exhausting goal.I'm a 34-year-old woman living in Portland and I'm fucking lonely and horny and not sure what to do to fix it. I'd love to be social, but I'm not sure where to go to meet people (men and new friends). Hell, you're not the only person on your who feels this way. And the easiest way to avoid bitterness, LSBG, is by getting out there doing shit. Keep meeting up with guys from apps for quick coffee dates, of course, but get out there and do shit you enjoy without the goal of meeting the "right" guy every time you leave the house.I've tried plenty of online dating sites and apps, but they haven't produced any successful relationships (or even good sex). I want a committed relationship, companionship—a man with an amazing penis and giving tongue (lol). I have no race boundaries but I feel like others do. Because if the stars all align, LSBG, you could find yourself in the right-guy-place at the right-guy-time. Get out there in the world, do the shit you enjoy, and you'll meet other people out in the world who enjoy the same shit you do.
But this is not a phenomenon that is limited to teenagers.I tell all my single guy friends to watch out for online dating.It is a sad, soul-crushing place where good guys go to die a slow death by way of ignored messages and empty inboxes.You will peruse profiles and find a few women who aren’t posing in a bathroom with their stomachs exposed.You will look for things in common in their profile (they like Scrabble too! You will send them a note, carefully crafted to show interest and attention to detail. The next one will, but she spells “you” as “u” and you will let the conversation stall.
With those, you will send a few messages back and forth before he invites you for a drink.
