Particularly the married guy paragraph. (Want to prepare you for that if you haven’t already encountered it.) I’d never have written anything half as good, and part of that is, I think, lack of imagination, but another big part is that I kept thinking ‘you can do that’? To be honest, I think this LW might be overthinking the question. First scan was for that, second was for any sweeping comments about “how women are” or anything angry (I don’t do well with angry, plus the angry ones seemed to be mostly angry in a punching down kind of way). Thank you to everyone who has written a comment and of course to our wonderful CA, for her on point advice! Awkward wrote to me even though he was a smoker (since quit) and we liked each other fine and worked it out. What do I want in a relationship? They don’t care. Because not everything is for you. Think about your past relationships and the relationships of your friends and family to help … Or, as my husband told me last weekend: “you’re so stubborn, it’s really great – it means you hold firm with the kids and I can’t get away with shit. I’ve been on Okcupid for slightly more than a month, and from the beginning my “You should message me if” section included these criteria, inspired by Captain Awkward’s profile: – You’d like to date someone demonstrative. If their way is one that you find pointless or bland or repugnant, clearly they are not the person for you, and that is okay. and I’m like… maybe this is a boyfriend or girlfriend shaped hole. In either of these reactions, the person is avoiding expressing, or sometimes even acknowledging, his or her basic wants and desires. But the thing is, we liked being each other’s foil. It’s okay to have fun with this. Gotsta have the feels for my partners. but some people don’t like peaches.”. Instead, your words should be an authentic expression of what you want, not a demand for what you “need” or an expectation of what you’re “entitled” to. Be picky. As someone who is dating/basically engaged to a fat, ace, nb person, I swear to you there are people out there who can love you with the intensity you deserve. I don’t know if I was just super lucky, but in my brief period of online dating I used the Guardian newspaper’s Soulmates and I never got any gross / unwelcome messages. If you’re really open to them all, then choose them all! We’d both be miserable.) A majority of people don’t appear to agree, given how bland and general most of the profiles I’ve seen are. There is perhaps no more painful thought in the world than that of “nobody likes me. You are passionate…about something. Clearly we need an Awkward Army book orgy at some point. And then when you do like or message someone, there is very little chance that you will hear back since they have to do the same thing. And, if I say I’m open to something casual then it reads as ‘I have no self-worth, this is an open invitation for you to use me for sex without any regard for my feelings or basic human decency’ (100% nope). This just gave me a lightbulb moment. “Someone who makes me feel good!” is a reasonable answer! It is the same with her. Yet, if I ask the same people what they do want in their relationship or from their partner, it seems to catch them off guard. I’m really confused about how OkCupid is set up now; I can’t tell if people are writing to me or not — or if my messages go to them or not. For some people these things genuinely are important, which is fair enough, but sometimes you just vaguely assume ‘oh that person won’t like me, my music isn’t cool enough’ or something like that. Don’t use victimized language – Refusing to act victimized is an important principle to hold in general. Currently dating someone I love dearly but who finds some of my quirks frustrating. It took me far too long to start dropping the f-bomb (feminism) in my profile. I once figured out that a lady I’d been on a couple of dates with was definitely not going to be compatible with me after a very silly conversation about polyamory/cheating between friends. Literally hours later, I got a reply from another guy I messaged the day before, saying mine was the best first message he’d ever received in his experience of online dating (and he’s been dating way longer than I have, despite being several years younger), and apologising profusely for the “lateness” of his reply. When you have time to peruse the site, spend it looking at profiles and messaging people YOU find interesting. Because of this, many people don’t always want to recognize what they want much less express it to someone else, who can then potentially let them down.”. I was like…the worst thing you can say about me is the truth? I eventually realized that for me, casual sex wasn’t orgasmic.
