And the women who’ve been at this a while play their cards close to the vest.
So it’s not like just bumping into someone at a store or on the street, chatting for a few, then meeting for coffee or a drink later. By far most of the women on these sites are frightfully unattractive.
If you’ve noticed I’ve been indisposed lately, the reasons are multifold.
Have you tried all the traditional ways to find someone special in Kansas?While we know all of these to be true, we also noticed another thing that’s true: unless you were lucky enough to meet someone new at a giant Royals watch party, the dating scene here sucks.Despite its overall awesomeness, KC has repeatedly ranked as one of the the worst cities to be single.It will also tell you when the others were last online so you know if they are active. Sometimes you’ll receive a message, but it won’t show up in the app or online even though you got an email notification. It may say that a user did or did not read a message at a specific time and that time-stamp may be way off. Bad: You can’t see if they read your message unless you subscribe.You can only see generic information on a profile unless you subscribe, but there is enough information there to be able to determine if you would like to message them or not.Nothing heavy duty, just window shopping, getting the lay of the land. For the uninitiated – and I’m going to venture a wild guess that that includes many if not most of you – it’s, it’s something I can’t describe in a single word. One thing leads to another and something either comes of it, or it’s back to square one. You can fly through women in this manner at whack-a-mole like speeds.And on top of all that, it’s a variation on what passes for “normal,” real life dating. The reason I mention flash cards is that the sites I’ve visited – Are You Interested and Plenty of Fish – feature mini photo profiles that ask if you want to meet the person pictured. Which is exactlys what you’re doing, you’re whacking the vast majority of them for reasons I’ll explain in a minute.So much so it makes you wonder why they pay good money to choke out those awful photos in awful clothes with awful backgrounds, etc, etc., etc.I used to joke some about the women I’d see at Sam’s Club in Topeka when I lived there for three months a couple years back.So we decided to go straight to the source and ask Millennials living in our great city why it’s so tough to find love here. There is a weird shadow over the entire concept…most of our social interaction is done on weekend evenings, which doesn’t lend itself to exploring many options. For a girl, the concept is scary…Too many negative possibilities.To get our answers, we posed questions to a group of four 20-somethings to get their take on how they view being single. Mary: Yes…The toughest part is meeting new people, especially if you don’t live near the downtown area.
