Do you completely pause your dating effort during COVID-19?
Are you scared that you will contract the virus when meeting your date?

Sometimes I do feel like Im getting older, and this year went by without me trying to find any partner and i can foresee until mid 2021 I for sure will still be single. Sometimes this thought haunts me lol

How bout u all?

just went for a date last night, everything resumed as normal, with or without covid, the only difference is some of the places are closed and the time max until 10pm, its not a total lockdown so its still possible, lots of people still out there doing their activity, mingle with friends in cafe, restaurant, etc

do you stay at least 1m apart from your date?
do you guys wear mask all the time? im curious actually since our date should be strangers that we don't know how his/her condition

Tinder super lot of weird guys (assuming u are a girl). CMB better, but u need to put effort into writing the profile as ppl actually read it.

My friend got a bf from there and very happy now!

oh wow i didnt know that lol maybe i will try CMB again cause last time i didnt write anything in my CMB profile

I haven't tried
Dont want later like paktor, pay to unlock chat

it shd be free
but just that CMB is very slow burn, not like tinder u can swipe n swipe cause they are designed so that you take time to read profile n think
so per day i can swipe like only 5 ppl, if want more, have to pay.
if we like each other then can chat

You can organize lowyat speed dating. Set a date and time at a cafe or cozy place. Then open a thread and invite singles.

All sit on separate tables, only 2 pax per table. Give like 10 minute per session, then change partner. Of course there will be other customers, so don’t be shy that people know your group is speed dating. Treat it as a fun game.

i think you are the one who wants this haha
why not u organise

i wont join tho

I've been trying CMB since June, quite some pauses for several months and now continuing again. I've seen quite some people that I like to talk to in the "Spiritual but not religious" category but not in the actual religion category itself.

2020 is hard to get someone to talk to. sad.gif

i mean..isnt ever since we redefine socialising with digital interaction, it has been hard to get someone around our age to talk to
unless of course if you wanna talk to aunty and uncle at the market, then that should be easy

I think unless you really look really bad, otherwise, i dun think looks really is a strong deterrent, esp for guys that are kinda looking for long term.
Your profile and your pictures plays a role in portraying your personality.
Little texts? Ppl may presume you to be non-chatty and they may feel pressured to sustain a conversation. (it's real tiring when trying to strike a convo, and the opposing party is not dancing along, only offering one liners)
Cheerful pictures, happy pictures of you, generates a positive feeling. You may not be cheerful all the time, but it's equally exhausting if you constantly negative. my barber is a constantly negative person and even tho it's a short session, just like 20 mins of haircut, but he can complain for full 20 mins. I kid you not. It's really exhausting to my mental. Also went out with a girl before. When trying to understand each other more, all that I can feel from her was, sad life, dissatisfaction, yet very little effort in trying to escape that loop. complain about job, complain about life, but expecting miracle for things to turn out better. instant turn off.
Pictures of you doing your favorite things helps. You like coffee? display a pic of you enjoying yourself in a cafe. Like outdoor activity? take a pic of you taking hiking.
But if you put a lot of atas pics (like all also overseas pic, of snowy mountains and etc, or fancy high end restaurants), be prepared that you have established a lifestyle filter. More down to earth or slightly lower income guys will just pass you by.
So a lot can be done to create your online persona, and who do you intend to attract.
Me myself i like average looking girls.. like from the scale of 0-10 (10 being prettiest, but 10 dun exists in my dict, so does 0), i prefer 4-7. Like 8 kinda gets the disqualify d. and celebrities maybe at 9, with insta pretty at 8. So i definitely dun like those pretty pretty ones. I think it's the girl next door type that gives the most.. individualistic feel. After all, every little imperfections truly defines you for you.
*
hm ok my definition of my prev post is that :
i got likes
but the people who likes me are unattractive
so i deleted my account because i think ppl who i deserve are unattractive lol

*by unattractive, that includes physically and personality-wise (as in their description) like overweight (complete turn off for me because im not overweight), from their profile can read they hate their life and (just like you mentioned) loves complaining, very negative people etc.

maybe this is a sign im not supposed to get anyone at the moment? maybe in future? maybe never? anyhow i been quite accepting with this fact lol but thanks for the suggestions!
