Well, one of the reasons I’ve had so many dates is that I rarely am in a relationship! It’s a lot of first dates, but not a lot of second (and beyond) dates. (I’m not proud of this or bragging, just being matter-of-fact.)

Hmmm…maybe a meet-up or some sort of IRL hobby might be a better option for you. It sounds like you really did give the online dating thing a chance!

I will add: online dating can be quirky. I find that it can ebb and flow with the calendar. Also, taking a break and trying again after a couple of months can be successful. New people are constantly signing up (unless you’re in a really small town).

Over the past 4 months, I’ve only had 3 dates. If that makes you feel any better!
