I think because men are wired a little differently, they are often willing to run into the arms of a nurturing woman even if the man is feeling fat, sad, or overwrought.

The Bible says in James 4:8, ‘Draw near to God and He will draw near to you’. I believe that in times like this, we need to draw near to God like never before.

On a personal level, I’ve had plans, some minor, and others quite major, cancelled or postponed, and there is nothing I can do about it. I’ve heard the word ‘unprecedented’ used so many times in the last few weeks that I’ve lost count. Life as we know it has changed and the future seems very uncertain for many.

Just as a community advice.

This are hard times, a lot of people lose their job and are desperate.

There is a lot of scamming happening right now, even more than what normally is.

Be smart, request video calls and/or ask him/her to share a pic of themselves holding a piece of paper with message on it. Most importantly, if he/she ask for money or a gift card he/she is not interested in you, don't lie to yourself believing there is more than just a scam.

Stay safe and wash your hands. 😬

Couple of points:

Firstly, the difference between Individuals who are 'successful' and those who aren't is that they relentlessly and shamelessly put themselves out there (in a non-creepy way). Rejection no longer becomes viewed as rejection but merely incompatibility while they're moving on the the next person. They learn through experience the types of people they prefer and who they match better with which which in turn becomes perceived as success.

Lastly, Comparing is always bad. Especially if you have a friendship group, chances are at least one or more people will have something going on at any particular time. It is easy to find yourself subconsciously comparing your dating life to the combined total of your group in which is unrealistic. If you pick out any one individual from your group, chances are they're doing just as well as you.

They say the master has failed far more times than the beginner has even attempted, however 'Getting the boy/girl' isn't the measure of success but whether or not there was an honest attempt.

I don't really know what this gamer's gender so I'm gonna use the term she/her for now. Also I don't know how old she is.

So I'm 19 years old and playing league of legends. A few months ago while I was playing rank flex (I thought I clicked Solo/Duo so I played support) Support, I played my main champ Rakan then this gamer(ADC role) ask me a question if I have a SG Rakan then I said yes ( I already bought all my main skins), she replied "yaaaay!" and picked Xayah with SG skin . After the game she added me and message if "I want to play a game with her" then I replied "Sure why not" ( I was kinda bored that time so I just accepted her offer). She's LP that time so we freaking wait 20mins for the queqe.

Anyways, a month passed and we're still playing league together (Rakan Xayah bottom most of the matches). We usually play league together on weekends because she said that she's busy with school on weekdays and if weekends comes she's the one who will invite to play a game and I'm starting to believe that she's a real girl.Set that aside I also have my doubts because there is some circumstances that I feel she's lying and the most thing caught my attention is her garena user is a male name and when I asked her about it she said she got this account from her cousin also I feel like its really rude to ask if she's really a girl or not. Well where still playing up till now and I need your thoughts and advices on if she's really a girl or not/How to ask if she's really a girl

If I happen to date her then she my first date I ever had because I'm like School - Home - Game - Anime vice versa. Never had a girlfriend or dated someone before and I'm on my 1st year on college if your asking. So I don't have enough experience on that love thing besides anime. CIAO >.<

How have people here handled Zoom dates? And any suggestions on keeping things light and breezy? I feel that when I'm nervous or things get a bit quiet, I tend to ask too many questions that may seem a bit like an interrogration.

Thank you!!

Ok so unfortunately I’m kinda used to being let down so in a way I know how to handle it. But recently something didn’t go my way and honestly if I was under normal circumstances cough cough covid. I think I would have been better.

But I feel like a fool since I’m bummed out that I couldn’t keep a conversation alive with someone that I ONLY meet a handful of times. Subconsciously I’m like dude get your shit together it’s not a big deal. But shits kinda wack dude and it’s hitting different.

Also feel like a fool because since I can’t really go out for a drive atm so I just drove around the gta v map for a couple of hours. Even freaking NAV’s music started hitting....

So here's a quick background story. I'm 26 and I'm from New York City. I've been in one serious relationship in my life and since that broke off I've been single for 4 years. I spent those last 4 years just doing me and living my best life. However, lately I've been wanting something more serious and thinking about possibly settling down. Where do I begin?

edit: nevermind. She let it go to voicemail when I called. Idk why I got my hopes up

Never talked on the phone for someone longer than 20min, especially not a girl I was interested in. Mostly family members if I even talk for longer time...

But I'm going to call a Bumble match later tonight - we had pretty good ice breaker convo in the app, and talked a bit over text until I told her I wanted to call her. Just the basics like some of our hobbies/school/career...

What are some tips to avoid awkward phone silence?

I just want to ask any advices on how you guys deal with your boyfriend's ex. I'm 22 and he is 25. Our relationship is quite fresh and he is my first boyfriend.

Well, my boyfriend and his ex don't have any interactions since we started dating but I always feel somehow curious and insecured over his ex whenever we talk about his past. Out of curiosity, I ask questions about his relationship with his ex and because of that, we always had an argument. I really want to get over it. Can I ask for advices?

So we met on Hinge 6 months ago when I moved to a new city for school. He’s amazing, caring, and super funny. He treats me like a queen, and I couldn’t ask for better! It’s been my most consistent relationship to date, and I really like this guy, BUT.....

He lied to me about his age. We were having a casual talk on the couch over some wine, and he told me he graduated university in X. When I did the math, I asked him whether he took any gap years, which to he replied no. I then jokingly say, “that makes you 33” to which he replies, that’s my age.

I was shocked. Why would he lie? I honesly just sat there and we continued watching TV, and I was thinking to myself if I had messed up ages somehow (since I was dating other guys at the beginning of our relationship). I then ask him about the Hinge profile, to which he responded he had marked his real age, 33.

We kissed, he left and I went to check one of my screenshots that I had saved 6 months back, and indeed it says 26 and not his real age.

This is a major red flag, and I honestly don’t know what to do. This seems like the tiniest little thing to lie about! I’ve met one of his family members, his friends, his coworkers. But I have real feelings for this guy.

When I called him up about the issue this morning, he didn’t want to admit to anything and say that “age doesn’t matter, and that he sees a future with me”.

Should I forgive him? Should I move on? The age difference is a big big for me personally.

So i've been on the internet for the past 2+ years searching about physical attractiveness, height, natural selection, mating strategies, sexual vibes, all that good stuff.

But i always come across is that in online dating:

The bottom 80% of men are competing for the bottom 80% of women.

The bottom 80% of women are competing for the top 20% of men

The top 20% of men want the top 20% of women and vice versa.

But the top 20% of men always have the bottom 80% of women so by doing some basic math, the top 20% of guys can pretty much have 100% of the women if they weren't so picky.

I tried to believe this theory and just accept that im just the bottom 80% of men that has to go for low quality women.

I work in retail and literally see guys with girls/girlfriends/wives ALL THE DAM TIME. If women really do want the "top 20% men" why the hell are they with the "bottom 80% men"?

That shit doesnt even make sense to me, imagine if this rule really applied in the beginning of humanity. Either you believe in evolution or adam and eve, how would we have 7,000,000,000,000+ people if only 20% of the opposite gender reproduced?

The 80% of women would'nt have relationships because they're competing for the top 20% of women and the bottom 80% of men would want to kill the 20% of men for hoarding all the mates and the 20% of men would be overwhelmed with all the girls.

Are women really in love with their partners and wouldnt "trade up" if they had the options?

Are women just lowering their standard's because they arent enough "top 20%" men?

And while im at it, what makes a top 20% male?

His male model looks?

Unique personality?

Social status?

I was gonna say money but i already know even guys with money dont get laid just based on money (unless she a gold digger) so thats already out of question.

Im 19 with barely any experience in the dating game so most of this info im just consuming online so just correct me if im wrong ( i wont bite ☺)

Basically, I overthink way too much. This fills me with anxiety, speculation and fear and its not healthy at all. Neither for my date or myself. This starts with those simple questions: "Who started the last interaction? If it was me, I can’t do it again! How often are they texting? How long are they taking to respond? Maybe I should take my time to answer too, to show them that I’m busy, that I’m not thinking about them…!"Im emotional, sensible and my heart is way too big for my body. Or maybe Im just addicted and feeling lust. Im not a expert in dating. Hence why I'm here searching for advice. I just want to gain experience. Dating people and see how far it goes.

However, I fall in "love" way too fast. I have no idea how I should handle the pacing. Should I write each day? Should I talk about my day each day? Should I say good morning and good night each day or does it get repetitive? I dont want to come out as a desperate person to them. I'm independent for the most part. I just struggle once I met a person Im interested in. The scariest part is that I dont even know them yet. We just exchanged some messages for a week and Im already here thinking about what will happen in the future. What confuses me is, Im a person who pays attention to a lot of details. In my opinion, you can read someone in the first sentences he writes. Is he shy? Insecure? Open-minded? Dominant? Happy? Confident? Of course only if the person acting with their real personality. But why do I blindlessly start to catch feelings for someone I barely know?

Apparently my feelings start spinning around in my head. I cant really think rational anymore. My previous stuff I usually do starts to become boring. Im listening to music, to overcome my emotions. Doing nothing but thinking about that one person. Analyzing his pattern, the way he acts and how he responded to my messages. Im sick of this behaivour and I have no idea how to overcome this.I know for a fact that this is not healthy for myself. Due to corona the situation becomes even harder for me. My bike is damaged since last week. Im not able to go out and do my thing. I freezed my social contacts until corona is over. We only have contact per chat and sometimes phone callings. Same with my dates. We only have contact through chatting. Which isnt a bad thing but rn I have nothing to do at all. Usually I come up with a date immediatly. I dont want to waste that much time with chatting. But thats not working at the moment. Thats why I have too much time to think about literally "nonsense".

Why all of the sudden is it so easy for me to catch feelings for someone? My expecations are going up, I see images in my head and cant wait to see how it goes out. I know I have to take things slow, but I dont know in which pattern. Im honest, in every way possible. If people ask me about my past, opinions or anything related to that Im always down to talk about it. I have no secrets. But I dont want to come out as a desperate person who seeks nothing but a boyfriend, no matter what it costs.Which doesnt mean that I dont want a boyfriend but I think the way I handle this, isnt right.

TL:DR: I overthink way too much. Take things way to fast. Insecure about how much I should write with the person Im interested in. Mainly because Im scared that the person thinks im desperate.

I’m 22 and I feel like I can’t find someone to commit even slightly because I’m the “chill” girl. I’m very laid back naturally and in my friendships I’m normally the one that people come to with their problems. I feel like guys notice this comfort that I naturally provide and use it to their advantage. I don’t know how to get it to stop. Am I missing the signs that these guys don’t want anything from me? What can I do to stop this from happening? Thanks💛

So I have Been talking this girl, yadha yadha. Basically I know that right now it'll be more like long distance dating which is fine. But what I was wondering is has anyone found any unique "date" ideas for this while in quarantine?

What I mean is, someone mentioned on another sub they went to a drive thru, got food, drove to a park and ate on their car hoods for the date. Fully hitting the social distancing but still a cool date idea. Just wondering if other people have found work around a like this?

I’ve been in a fwb situation with one of my friends housemates for the last few months. At first the boundaries were unclear and it seemed like we were slowly headed towards a relationship, I developed some very strong feelings for him. However after a couple months he decided what he wanted and was very clear he wasn’t interested in a relationship. I went through being rly sad and then rly mad and then just generally disliking him. I almost ended it about a month ago but I changed my mind the last second because I reasoned if I’d already gone through the mourning period I’d be over it. The sex is really good and I didn’t want to lose him as a friend or make things weird with the friend group. But now with self isolation I’m lonely all the time and he’s talking to me more because he has nothing else to do. It’s making me want more again. I want to ft him and talk but I know he doesn’t want more idk what I should do it’s making me extra not super happy right now.

tl;dr at bottom

Backstory:

I'm a 23 year old fella. I've been single about 4 years and have been avoiding dating since. I just met someone at a concert, which is strange because I'm pretty introverted and keep to myself. She is 22 years old. If I catch feelings, it's usually from work or college. I don't know what about me caught her attention and I'm glad she talked to me. She's awesome.

Before the quarantine we hung out 4 times and I've never felt that comfortable with someone. It takes me a long time to open up to someone. I dislike talking on the phone, but I planned a "The Office" drinking game through face time. It was so fun.

She mentioned she was interested in someone else so I started the process of moving on, then it turns out he wasn't so interested. The feelings rushed back. When we're together it feels.. I don't know. Like it's meant to be, I guess. I feel dumb saying it.

The problem: When we're apart she takes hours to Respond. Sometimes a full day or she doesn't respond. I don't want to come off as needy, I don't even know if she feels the same way. It feels like she does when we talk in person or on the phone. The silence is really loud though, I don't like feeling this way and I shouldn't. It's not fair to her. I'm sure she just wants a friend. But I can't stop it.

I'm meditating and focusing on observing these feelings, not letting it control me. Its not working, she's on my mind constantly. I'm going to step back a bit. I'm going to stop initiating a needy amount. I think the next time we speak I'm going to have to say something because if this keeps snowballing and it turns out she doesn't feel the same way, I'm still going to be her friend no matter what happens. But I'm going to need time to move on.

Any suggestions? Advice? Tips? I don't even know what I'm looking for. I have no one I'm comfortable talking to about anything. It's always me being introspective and figuring things out. That's why I came here. The dating world is new to me.

Thank you for reading.

tl;dr I like someone a lot. When we're together it feels like we have mutual feelings. While we're away, she doesn't talk to me much and sometimes doesn't even respond.

I’m a 33 year old independent female. I have a great job, I think I’m decent looking, people say I’m friendly and trusting, etc. However, when it comes to dating, I’m always #2 and I don’t know why.

Yesterday, I had a married coworker (33m) text me. I know he’s had a crush on me since before he got married. I’ll catch him staring, he’ll come up to my desk to ask dumb questions, flirt, etc. He always tries to get things to progress further. He even lied/hid his engagement from me for 6 months! I know he has no intention of leaving his wife because we’ve been working together since before he married her and he wouldn’t have gone through with marrying her if he truly wanted something with me. So I feel like he wants to make me just the OW.

Then, my ex (32m) from high school messaged me out of nowhere on Facebook and tried to get me to have phone sex with him. He’s married with two kids!!

These are two recent examples, but why does this keep happening? Does anyone have any advice? I’m 33 and am tired of this. I want to get married and start a family, but I apparently keep attracting the wrong guys and don’t know what I’m doing wrong!

So I’ve (18m) been seeing a girl (18f) recently, we’ve been going for walks together because everything around us is closed. It’s been really cool, I we’ve told each other we like each other and honestly at this point I know things are gonna progress well, though I still haven’t made any significant physical moves. Usually when we walk, she has her hands out, but maybe covered by her sleeves. Today, she pulled them out for a while, and I considered taking her hand, but I didn’t want to do it if she didn’t intend for me to. Do you think if it happens again, I should just take it and see what happens, or are there signals I should be looking for? I don’t want to try and it ends up she doesn’t want me to hold her hand. But then again, she does like me, and I don’t see why she wouldn’t want it...
