The Sad State of Affairs for Dating
So I got back into the dating market about a year ago. Tried POF, complete trash there. Dumped it and have been trying Hinge with some moderate success. I started having a conversation with a woman 2 days ago:

Me: Hi ", I'm ", how are you? How's your week going?

Woman: Hey how it's going? Very slow honestly. How is your week?

Me: Hey! So sorry about that, it was actually a busy day for me. Worked in the morning, ran a few errands and then met up with some friends in the evening. Any plans for your weekend?

Woman: I work every day until Tuesday, enjoy sleeping in though. I'll be at work in about an hour.


At this point it gets interesting because I was crazy busy yesterday and didn't respond for several hours. She replies back:

Woman: You're quite the conversationalist, lol.

I reply back this morning:

Me: I'm sorry again, I'm not usually this busy. Worked out yesterday morning and then spent several hours helping my niece with a school project. I'm sorry you have to work over the weekend, are you normally off during the week?

Me: I see you work at "". What kind of word do you do?

Woman: Lol I'm sorry you call going to the gym and helping with homework busy?

To shorten this story I reply back with 2 messages and she responds with this:

Women: So you were busy for about 6 and a half hours lol that's only part of the day. I'm sure you had your phone with at most times in between all that and because it's 2019 and everyone does. It's easy to respond back to people, just an observation.

She sends another message but at this point I block her and send a nice little message back to counter this little message she sent me.

I mean was I wrong because I took about 12 hours to respond? Seems like she has no respect for the fact that people have a life and it seems she was mad that I didn't just drop everything to respond back immediately. Just an observation on what dating has become.

Maybe try to have a real conversation with a woman, and not online or text?

End the conversation. No Hinge back and forth should have that tone / vibe.

Oh no I have moved on. I immediately ended the conversation and told her what I thought of her tone. Even just by that basic conversation she comes off as controlling. I feel sorry for whoever she convinces to be her next BF as I could see her being the type that would want to know where you are and what you are doing every minute of the day. Is that the sense you all get as well?

re: The Sad State of Affairs for Dating
Someone who wants you to immediately reply and start a long series of text conversations does not actually want to meet you. They just want attention from you.

You have to discern who is serious about dating and who is not. You are correct in delaying your responses and keeping conversations short. The conversations that you do have should be driven toward an initial meeting. That’s when you deliver conversation-wise.

If you haven’t seen her b-hole within 12 hours of initial contact, you’re a loser.

Now you see why she has to rely on a dating app to get laid.

What a terrible conversation. You can’t ask something that generic then leave for hours and not develop a rapport. You won’t get anywhere with them

re: The Sad State of Affairs for Dating
Her was my final message to her:

I am now going to block you. Who are you again? I don't have to justify my life or my schedule to you. Actually just so you know I don't take my phone with me when I'm working out and sometimes I'll even leave it at home. I don't believe in being constantly attached to my phone.

Multitasking has proven to actually be less productive. I might not always respond immediately but whatever I am doing or whoever I am speaking with will always get my undivided attention and I will not apologize for that. People like you who always try to multitask is why we have wrecks on our roads every day and why the world has become such a cold place.

I am ending this because it's obvious you are controlling. You are coming off as the type who would want to know where her SO is at all times. Just an observation on my end. In the future try to be more considerate and understand that for most people dating is just a part of their life and not even a crazy important part of their life at that. Good luck.
