Not as tough as Mr White perhaps found it ‘inside’

I don't find it so tough when I turn my frown upside down. :P And while I get why you don't want to date "Walter White", I wouldn't mind having a beer with him, but then again at 18 on freshman spring break in Mexico I was telling the local drug dealers that they were being inefficient. They seemed to take a liking to me, cavalier as I was.

Welp, I think I might have "liked" some profile I didn't want to just because I was clumsy with my phone and fingers. What to do now?

I clearly have no idea how this works. :leaving:

You “unlike” it. Or do nothing.

I don't seem to be able to find an option to do so. I cannot even find out where the profile went now.

The Internet tells me that going back and changing your response is only possible for people who pay for some extra fancy version. Which I am absolutely not willing to do.

Looks like I am doing nothing, then. :dunno:

You forget about it and keep things moving. :P

Not a damn thing! It means nothing, don't worry about it, and confuse them if you feel like it.

Yeah an accidental like wont hurt anything - if you end up matching with this person you can always 'unmatch'.

TOTALLY DO THIS!!!!! 
Just take some work, or a book, or something where you can be self-sufficient for a few hours (as I know you would).

Maybe have a friend text you at a certain time so if you are having a shitty time, you can say you have to drive back for some unspecified emergency.

I think I'll head in mid-dayish Tuesday, though I have a somewhat unmovable 10 AM back in the city Wednesday. I think they start at the crack of dawn though, so even if things go the way they might, I won't be the person sneaking out of bed at 6 AM for once...

Been racking my brain trying to come up with a joke about whether my personal Chataya is more of an "innie" or an "outie".  It's kind of hard and I just can't seem to finish either

I am relieved that the consensus is that this isn't some irreparable shame on me and my whole family unto the seventh generation. I tend to take things more seriously than they need to be taken. I suppose I could survive this situation after all.

Yeah, it happens. Also happens that you get involved in a convo that turns annoying. I had to beat a graceful (hopefully so) exit, myself, today, telling a young gentleman that “upon further consideration, I’m not feeling ready to date* but wish you best of luck!”

* insert word “you” here, unspoken.

Also, never f—-cking text me about GameStop or AMC :rolleyes: when you find out my job and think it somehow applies to actual trading :ack:

 

Damn it, he was even 46 :bawl:

It now says that my profile has been liked plenty of times. I suspect this to be a fib to get me into paying for the premium or whatever the fancier version is called. I mean, I had two very similar pictures and nothing in my description and no hobbies listed up to now. Now I added a different picture (deleted one of the first two ones) and added some hobbies. Still have no clue about what to write in this little description. These descriptions really don't seem to help any at all. :dunno:

The thing is really odd and feels artifical. Like window shopping, but with people. I don't know how to feel about it.

So, um, wise people ... (apologies for double post and all) ... is it normal to find basically no profile appealing? I don't know how many I have seen until now, maybe ... 10, 15? I think one was kind of nice enough that I would consider swiping right on, but well, I am too shy to do that and ended up closing the app and when I returned to it, that profile was gone and now I have only seen some that I don't find interesting. It this thing going to ban me for thinking I am a bot if I just don't like almost any profile? What is the average percentage of profiles you swipe right/left?

It’s normal to be selective. However, don’t overthink this.

Just follow your gut and swipe right if you think there’s any flicker of interest on your part. 

I swipe right on maybe 10%.

Despite Chats' aversion to men with diamond strong hands, I have to agree with her @Buckwheat. You really are overthinking this.

When I was dating I would swipe (whichever direction is to match) on like 1 or 2 percent.
