    Fortunately the GUE crowd down in SoCal is a pretty cool group

    I prefer the workplace because then you know he has a good job and his real identity

    That’s my “normal”

    1. Men on dating apps are the leftovers that nobody wanted enough to scoop up

    2. they could be serial killers

    Men must be observed in their natural
    environment, not the one they created in a profile

    I feel strongly you want to observe men in their natural environment because otherwise it’s like watching an animal at the zoo, how much can you really know?

    Works from home. :(

    Also at the smaller companies I worked at, dating at work was fraught with danger.

    yes but some of us like danger

    it forces you to select a discreet person that won’t call in the patriarchy to save them if things go south

    Danger is an important trial balloon and litmus test and not as dangerous as giving us your pension or a house

    Working from home has limitations but you can still create opportunities

    You need to be able to test and observe using things you can afford to lose

    Activities are probably the next best thing because you can observe them before making a decision.

    having said that, my husband was an obnoxious diver and incapable of following directions and very disrespectful but apparently that is what I like

    This would be a train wreck of a Reality TV show, “The Diver Dating Game”
    “Who Wants to Marry a Dive Instructor?”
    “Indian Matchmaker - in the Maldives”
    “The Buoyant Bachelorette”
