How's your love life DiS?

I think I’d be interested. I can guarantee I’d probably be a bit rubbish at it, though.

A girl I met for a drink right before she went back to her parent’s for Christmas thinks that I have been messaging her on an alternate OK Cupid account.
This other account has some “coincidences” with mine apparently, and has told her that it’s me when she asked.

Slightly bemusing and a bit creepy.

Got a hot date this week when I get back to Spain!

(Almost sure I’ll be cancelling it tomorrow unless she gets there first)


#1573

what’s everyone’s tips for being a great person to go on a date with?

Just curious if I fit any of the criteria.


#1574

how about don’t


#1575

Thought this was a reply to Bamnan and LOLed


#1576

christ that’d be a bit heartless even for me.
if I’m giving my honest and probably far too cursory opinion though @Bamnan I’d say be yourself (obviously, you can’t be anybody else) and suss out if there’s any actual chemistry. If not, don’t force it. If there is, enjoy it?


#1577

just be nice and pay attention and have some nice conversation


#1578

having said this I’ve had a couple of internet datees telling me they thought I was bored by them so maybe be yourself but sugar the pill a bit if it’s a no


#1579

I like listening to people and asking questions but I also like talking about myself.

Maybe single is best for me then


#1580

The worst dates I’ve been on are where the guy is like really trying to be aloof and disinterested because it sends me into a a bit of an anxiety spiral so I babble and giggle away out of pure nerves. By the end I’m super drained because I’ve had to do all the work.

Also had one where a guy literally talked about himself and all the women who fancied him for 3 straight hours lmao


#1581

you need both of those things, goes both ways!


#1582

ah phew, turns out I’m great then, thanks :slight_smile:


#1583

I went for a canal walk in the Summer with someone who wouldn’t stop talking about their art, and tbh I was bored, but feel really bad that I let it show. I’d never intentionally feign or try to look like something obviously that’s pretty shit and manipulative, but yeah I’ve been on the receiving end of it too and felt pretty bloody insecure (usually on dates with older people really).

If your Scotfood videos are anything to go by, you’ll be fine. No glaring social etiquette failings in any of those. :slight_smile:


#1585

everyone loves bad accents I’m sure :slight_smile:


#1586

I’ve got an image of you standing in Norwich city centre like a Jehovah’s Witness with a clipboard and a leaflet stand full of “Discover Saps Today” pamphlets.


#1587

As long as you don’t spend all your time talking about cycling you’ll be fine.


#1588

can guarantee I’d spend almost none of it


#1589

things are improving with my boyfriend. i think we’re back on track and just need to make sure it stays that way
