I think ALL dating sucks. The advantage to IRL is that you don’t need to be actively “dating” to meet someone. I personally HATE the chase. And the women I’ve dated who like being chased have invariably resulted in pretty dysfunctional relationships for me. I’ve always come at relationships from a standpoint of two equal people interested in learning about each other. Often, they never progress beyond a friendship but the relationships that have resulted from that kind of connection have always been much more successful for me. I love meeting new people, connecting, having conversations and getting to know other souls. I’ve had a couple of explosive “chemistry based” relationships over the years. They didn’t end well.
