In short, I don't know what I would get out of dating if and when I re-enter the market. Tl;dr, was using Tinder to sleep with basically everyone until I decided to basically give up on it. I'm finding at least with Tinder if I'm picky with my matches must have written something reasonable in their bio and preferably include their job, no red flag photos the guys who message me are generally people I would entertain meeting irl. I learned how to date but better than that, I made myself a better person in the process. I don't mean to pry, I am genuinely curious. I thought tinder was more of a hook up app, I didn't think it would work for dating.
I only ever dipped my toes in.
What I didn't know was that it was to piss off some other guy. I'm still on that break. I'm very persistent when I want something and I want a wife and kids so I can't see myself ever giving up, and I do think with time I will find someone who will want to spend their life with me like I want to spend my life with them. She stopped replying to my texts and I just found out she she's now in a relationship with someone else. Always been a loner in life.
