I'm a very understanding person. 'Tis why I support relight-able torches. Multiple, relight-able torches...  8)

Oh gawd!!!!! There are no euphimisms to euphimise here! Go into your corners!

*cough* If we were talking in code language though...

Should a certain person named maybe maestro

A. Still hold a torch for an old flame

B. Attempt to light the latest new torch that intertests him or

C. Light any interesting torches that come across their way without any attachment and ignore commitments to any one torch



Somewhere between B and C. Closer to B, but without a strict need to suddenly commit to anything long-term. Also, don't be in a rush to... drop a torch at the first sign of trouble? Are we still running with this metaphor?

*Pulls a Frono and exhumes a grave

Already touched upon on Happy Hour, but online/app dating good or bad

Go. Share your wisdom, raiders!

Well, just to reiterate what I said before, we're all literally reading this on a website where we meet and talk to total strangers that we would never have a chance to become friends with were it not for the magic of the internet. Using it to help find people in your local area to then go meet in the physical world, is not that crazy. There's also no excuse anymore for not knowing who someone that you met online is before meeting them in person. We have facebook, twitter, skype, youtube, etc. I can go online and find out who your friends and family are, talk to you over webcam face to face, even compare an exhaustive list of favorite fan fiction if we so chose. So yeah, it's a fine invention. The modern world is time consuming, and we don't all live in tiny towns anymore where you just automatically marry the only girl your age. We're spoiled for choice, and online dating can help you cut through all that.

It's important to remember that it's not there for having a boy/girlfriend that you only 'date' online. It's for meeting locals. No different than trusting your friends to happen to know someone they think you might like.

I mean don't go crazy with expectation man. Real people still be real people. Remember that people don't have to share all the exact same passions to be compatible with each other. There's more to it that just that.

Your area is also a big factor when using an online dating app. The smaller the area, the less likely you'll find a good match.

From my experience, I ran into a lot of women who couldn't hold a decent conversation. I've gotten a lot of the "ok" and "lol" and after a while I got bored with it all. And it could be just where I'm from, but a lot of women seem pretty stuck up sometimes. Just read some bios from a couple different profiles, you'll see what I mean.

And there's scams too, of course, and escorts, which makes finding a decent person to talk to and eventually meet a bit more difficult than it needs to be.  Then again, I live in the south side of Chicago where it's not too hard to find those thing in IRL, so I digress.

So yeah, online dating is great lol!

Yah got to navigate them pitfalls.

That is the upside of online dating through, (assuming you live in an area of decent population), lot's of options.

Indeedy. I have a stupid first world problem feeling though sometimes - not in dating but in general - when I have too many choices I get confused and stuff.

So... You've used the app before or browser based stuff?

Well, I'm pretty sure the more mainstream dating websites also all have apps as well these days. I don't know if i'd trust an app only service. Unless you're just looking for a hookup. Unfortunately, if you're going for a more 'serious' dating site, you'll probably need to drop a little cash.

Both. Tinder, plenty of fish, even was on zoosk for a short while, although I wasn't using zoosk too much since you pretty much have to pay just to message somebody. Sorry, but I refuse to pay a monthly subscription to talk to a girl. I can do that outside for free.

Plenty of options to choose from, Lego. most dating sites have a subscription based system, so you're gonna have to do some searching to find the free stuff, unless you don't mind paying to use a subscription based service.

And like Coryn said, don't put too much stock into it. Have some fun with it and use it as an tool for gathering experience and building confidence with talking to different types of women.

I still think the art of chatting up broads in a bar is cinematic af though. I'm good at being a clown but the problem is I need a wingman all the time. God. I think it's been years since I actually got a number from a gal like that.

I don't think I'll do subscription, but I'll try it out just for kicks. Sigh. Might as well. A couple years from now it's going to be Black Mirror when it comes to dating.

Oh, Black Mirror is just technological fear mongering. Don't put too much stock in it.

They are good for just talking to people. But while chatting someone up in the bar may be a lost art, it's not necessarily a bad art to lose. Our generation definitely prefers to take things on their own level.
