I’m not normal, live in San Antonio, and would drive all the way to San Marcos to meet you (if you were closer to my age of 64)!
I’ve been doing a fair share of online line dating for about a year. My profile points potential dates to Medium to read my posts here to get an idea of what I’m about. None have bothered doing so, and none even attempted an excuse when I asked why not. THAT freaks me out. I’m thinking of doing something I suggested months ago in response to an article here about online dating: Put a code word in my profile and make their knowledge of the code word a prerequisite to my actually meeting them. That at least would pre-qualify prospects by two criteria: literacy, and curiosity.
