Online dating and fun

The platforms I used were Ok Cupid and Bumble, so you will have to translate to your favorite online dating platform.

I’m not including any safety-related tips because more than enough of that kind of advice already exists for straight women.

The latest wave of online dating sites forgoes mysterious equations in favor of straightforward, sometimes unexpected, matching techniques.

Whereas Match.com, e Harmony and Ok Cupid promise to calculate your ideal mate based on your actions and stated preferences, these new sites use some interesting new criteria such as common friends, activities, alma mater or even face structure to make matches.

Upside: A personal reference for every potential date.

Downside: Your common friends will inevitably hear feedback about your dates.

” kind of post – the only claim to success I’ll make is that I’m having a good time dating right now.

I didn’t do any research on what dating is like for people who aren’t similar to me, so you should know up front that I’m a 37-year-old straight white feminist cis woman who doesn’t have or want kids and is looking for a long-term monogamous relationship in the San Francisco Bay Area.

If we think negative about dating and the options out there then more negative experiences will attract themselves to us.
