Stay chaste while dating
If something about a match is bothering you, google their name or workplace to see if you can verify the things they’ve told you.
You’re entitled to be told the truth by your matches so don’t feel afraid to do your own research. If a match sounds too good to be true (claiming to be a millionaire, or international model) then they may well be. Be first date savvy That first meeting will be exciting, but don’t let your excitement get in the way of common sense.
I just don’t want to be a sucker and waste time is all but I think you’re pretty much right.
Pretty sure Bumble prioritizes people who get swiped right on the most. I didn’t bother dating for the first year and started dating just over a year ago.
I don’t think I want her to meet my friends if she’s going to be talking to or meeting other guys because we aren’t on the same page then. Edit: for further context, I’ve been single for almost two years now and she just got out of a four year relationship maybe 4-5 months ago or so. You seem to understand that it's futile to get pissed off or bummed out at her, for doing exactly as you are doing. Assume every relationship is NOT exclusive, until it is defined by the both of you as exclusive, out loud. Don't get carried away with your own expectations. I just don’t want to come across as not interested in her.
I had some doubts in the beginning that I addressed saying there’s no way she’s ready to date again but she said she was. You're asking for tips as to how you might be more "rational," and control your feelings of disappointment. But when it is, that's the exception, not the rule. While she has signaled that she is not ready at this time, she also seems to like you. Definitely making an assumption here, but I’m doing so because I know she told me she had it and met some guys off it but had no luck and got rid of it.
Beware of a match who: • Asks for money • Gets close to you quicker than you feel is right • Only gives vague responses • Tells complicated stories • Says or does anything that makes you feel uncomfortable 2.
She would call me a few times a day and I was actually really interested in meeting her.
