Honestly? It’s a bit of a shot in the dark. The interest in dating right now is very low. I’m not reaching out to men online and they aren’t to me either. Those that do text a bit and then it usually peters out pretty quickly. COVID is at an all-time high. It’s just too risky.

I’m mostly read between the lines on the profiles. Those who list an interest in every possible kind of relationship, including nonmonogamous and hookups are passed on by.

Those who don’t spent anytime on their profile are thrown out too. Then those who say they are very passionate guys worry me but I’m willing to text and see where it goes.

I learn a lot by texting. Most tip their hand pretty quickly and hint about meeting up right away. Let’s watch a movie, they’ll suggest. Ah no. I’m not doing that either.

But some you don’t know until you meet. One guy had his tongue down my throat within five min of saying hello. I should have shown him the door immediately, that was when I was still being too nice.

So yeah there’s a lot of sexually aggressiveness these days. A lot. Pretty sad.
