Sean dating profile 31
We’re all mid-20-something women living in Philadelphia, and yet we were all over the map.One friend said she certainly passed judgment if a guy didn’t pony up on the first date — surely there are men out there who are feminists but still want to wine and dine a girl. Another argued that expecting a man to cover the bill (and consequently judging him if he didn’t) was transactional and archaic. I’m guessing we’re not the only ones who can’t seem to find unanimity when it comes to best practices in courtship these days.So how does one nimbly navigate finding The One in 2018?I asked some Philadelphians on the dating scene to lay out their most vexing questions — and savviest answers.If you’re looking for something casual, playing the numbers game on Tinder or Grindr or Bumble is a surefire way to a quick fling.
A while back, on a Saturday afternoon, a couple of girlfriends and I were lounging at a house in Fishtown, chatting about life over glasses of chardonnay.
We got to discussing first dates, particularly how the bill should be handled when the night’s coming to a close.
A lot of Philadelphians I spoke to say they’re definitely curious about a date’s political affiliations (an sentiment was frequently expressed), but that they generally assume they’re breaking bread with someone whose views are on the same side of the political spectrum, especially given Philly’s left-leaning tendencies.
(Friends of mine describe relief when politics enter the conversation on a first date and their assumptions are confirmed.) For others, though, politics and the like are still taboo subjects that don’t have a place on the first or second date but should be revealed over time.For starters, post pictures that have good image quality (common sense) and that actually look like you (people will notice one too many filters). Nobody wants to play detective to uncover which of the seven people posing at the Eagles game is you.
