On the one hand, my schedule automatically winnows the dating field – someone must I've met men on Tinder interested in both serious and casual relationships.
I would love to fall in love again – to once more experience that type of deep intimacy, with all the joy and pain that it entails.
While none of these options interest me, I certainly receive many offers.
Many of these offers come from much younger men (I mean, 15, 20, or 25 years younger).
While I've had my share of ridiculous, pointless come-ons, I've also met men interested in real dating.
In the past year, I've dated two different men that I met on Tinder. Our first date was in a left-wing cooperative bookstore and cafe.
There is such a difference between what is available for men and woman.
What I find most interesting at this point is the whole dating scene.One man went from asking me about spelunking to suggesting we would make beautiful babies.Needless to say, it was an abrupt shift in our conversation. They sit in my matches folder like unexplored potential. Maybe we'd have great chemistry – if only one of us made the next move. I'm usually called away by mothering, chores, and paid work.On the flip side, many of the men are there for hook-ups.For every man seeking dating or romance on Tinder, there are probably 10 others seeking to hook-up, or to become friends with benefits.I drank coffee, he drank green tea, and we talked for hours about politics and change.
