got a feeling I'm going to get ghosted soon....after meeting once.

yesterday (my last day for a paid OKCupid membership) I messaged a woman who liked me. we have a 93% match, things seem good. not necessarily the "ideal" for what I like physically, but definitely some things that made me interested (such as her liking NCIS, Big Bang Theory, and iZombie).

We're now having a conversation about TV shows we like to watch and...

oh how I wish there was a dating app or something here on SG.....how much easier life would be!
hellstorm:
how long do I wait and hear nothing before I move on to someone else or just give up?  anyone?

So, this one profile on OKCupid has a 96% match with me...we have over 300 questions answered in common.

Place your bets now if I get a response if I message her.

arroezze:
Maybe you could just message her because you have common interests instead of making it a contest. Just a thought.

nothing like seeing the picture of the girl you've liked for years but she kept talking about how she doesn't want a relationship right now with anyone post a picture with her new boyfriend and talk about how happy she with him on Facebook is to brighten your day.

so how did your day start?

when you're my age and not one for the bars....finding a date really sucks.

so far, I've had about 1 month (out of 3) of a paid membership to OKCupid. One girl said she likes comic books (I read comic books) and we had a match of 90% or higher. sent her a message, asking her what she likes. nothing.

another girl...

I think okc sucks for getting messages to people. I would often get messages saying someone was interested, meaning they had liked my profile and sent a message - but so often when I'd go to 'double take' to try to find this person - and oftentimes I can't. No matter how many people I swipe through. I don't think you should be discouraged, but I don't think you really need to pay either. You might reach a point where you want to pay because you finally find a profile that really sets your heart on fire... The simple answer is, I wouldn't pay for it, but I'd keep at it. You're certainly not the only one who can't get a date.
hellstorm:
Gadget, going point.  for me, it just gets discouraging sometimes.  then again, I seem to hear a lot of "You're such a great guy....I'm glad we're friends" but that's about it....yes, I live in the perpetual friendzone (that and my last relationship ended with a "You taught me I'm worthy of respect and relationships can be a good thing...now I want to see what else is out there."

so been trying the OKCupid thing....saw one girl where we "matched" in the mid 90's. and another girl who mentioned comic books.

but have heard nothing back...

kind of disappointing. what's a single guy in his 40's to do? hate the bar scene and all the people I know seem to think I make a really good friend but not worth...

OK Cupid...should I bother paying the $10 or so a month to see who is "interested" in me? what do you think?

birdi:
It's a scam... Plus barely anyone is on OKC anymore.mostly just bots
chef:
I think you have a better chance of meeting someone here.

vacation has started...actually started last Friday. so far, I've installed some blinds at my Mom and step-dad's house and met a friend for dinner. the part that bites is this friend is someone I would love to date. except she said how she started seeing someone. someone she was friends with, so she decided why not.

yet not really surprised by this...
