Respecting somebody’s boundaries or actively getting consent isn’t “repressing” anything. – One or two matches – if that – from every 100 right swipes on Tinder Welcome to Tinder, dude. Fine tune your Tinder profile, get better photos and recognize that you’re going to be shotgunning swipes because you’ve got next to no information aside from a photo to go on. – Developing a nice exchange of messages but never hearing from her again when you suggest going for a drink; This just means that someone wasn’t interested in meeting you for a drink. Women, on average, don’t like feeling like they’re interchangeable, and a guy who’s giving them the feeling that he just wants if it hadn’t been on a dating site.

One: the guy freaks out and reacts angrily or violently – it’s a trap, she’s a sex-worker looking for a client, whatever. – On the rare occasions that I do get a date, and I feel I make a good impression, I’m rejected after the first hurdle. – For me, It is not reasonable expect chemistry after speaking to a stranger for 2 hours, and 3 or 4 dates are required to see if there is any compatibility.
