rutee0719611173d"So limited choice if you are aged 93.."
iiii4144173dWhy the first rule at all?
FinlayDaG33k6198173dTried the same a while ago.
Had a nice lass whom I chatted to buuut she turned out to be an anti-vaxxer so I unmatched her.
After that, not a single match D:
subastation14173dYou aren't using iPhone, aren't you? (yes, it's just a theory)
TBot63173dI hate dating apps
FinlayDaG33k6198172dA dating app for devs...
You don't match on how they look like, you match on which languages they love/hate.
The age rule limit was brought in to stop older men from sending messages to younger women.
Apparently 13 years was chosen due to statistical analysis of successful relationships, begins to tail off once the age difference is greater than 13 years.
I'm reminded of someone I knew who swore blind they would never date anyone older than X.
Then, they dated someone X+3, because, they had a car..
They have been together 20 years now, married for 10, so I guess that worked out fine and they was one of the lucky ones !
What a good thing they changed their mind and married someone who had a car, and also owned a brewery..
Otherwise they might have ended up with me, and I don't have a car, or a brewery..
But we was more on a similar intellectual level, so evening conversations would be a bit more interesting.
But she looks happy enough @ restaurants, even if her blog music choices say a little otherwise..
Sadly, I've found even that isn't enough.
Though I am reminded of one woman I chatted with, she loved the 6502, and I loved the Z80, so we was not destined to be together..
Another, we both loved ARM code, and shared a love of Raspberry Pi's and soldering, but that wasn't enough..
I probably just lived too far away, again..
If only I could afford to move nearer !
Or maybe had a car..
Working on the car solution ! (Not finished building it yet..)
Be interesting to see if more travel range, makes any magic difference !
I do remember some years ago a woman moved in with me who lived some 4,000km away.
But the next day she met a rich TV producer and moved into his penthouse flat..
It's funny because she said she was sick of rich guys, and wanted someone with a personality, and didn't care that I lived in a ghetto..
I guess that wore off pretty quickly in practice..
Note, I've lost several girlfriends to rich TV producers..
Lesson there, don't live near rich TV producers !
Of course, now I live near rich fishermen instead..
