Dating profiles with no picture
Driving to record the podcast, I reflected on the last six weeks of dating and realized that my heart is not in it. Writing all of these messages back and forth doesn’t guaranty a date; in 2015, most people don’t want to talk on the phone so it ends up becoming a text- penpal relationship.I deleted my OKCupid account immediately after recording the episode. When I’m browsing, swiping and texting with strangers, I’m not actually doing the things that bring me joy or productivity.On the other hand, there was a really thoughtful guy who planned a picnic at a park and brought all of my favorite foods and drinks.
I went on a couple of dates from the site, and met some people who seemed interesting and smart. But, after about a month, I decided that it no longer served me either. Last week, I was a guest on the “Ask Women” podcast and we talked about online dating (the episode will air in a few weeks, and I’ll publish the link). Here is my list of why online dating no longer serves me: Constantly having to check apps, some of which are clunky and outdated, takes up a lot of time.
I really enjoy going to restaurants, cooking, taking day trips, exercising, reading, and spending time with friends.
