That was awful being blocked like that and for no concrete reason. Still, it happens and one is left wondering why. Take heart, Burt, it's not you. Just some flibbertigibbet woman with ants in her pants.
I can tell you it is really hard to stop being a misogynist. But I am not, I have met some kind women in real life.. Maybe it is just the weirdness of dating online that brings out a sort of 'shopping' mentality. Only perfect will do.

I am not a male stereotype, I am a fucked up misfit just doing my own thing.

You're not fkcd up or a misfit. It's perfectly good being an individualist, and being a free thinker is cool. But just because others (meaning women) you're talking to in this dating site don't seem to understand, then keep plugging away until you do.

Others may be wanting the 'perfect' person, but they'll be sadly misinformed because there is no such thing as the perfect other. Because we all have faults. If other women can't see that, they obvs they're not the one for you. :)

thanks dulcie. I think you are right
Just keep plodding on.

Those in the dating site who block/dump you were never meant to be your friend. Except there could be someone else. Maybe even a nerd with a big heart. You'll soon get to know who the time wasters are.

A good point is when someone gushes praise yet, hardly knows you or has been writing for a long time, be wary of them. Even Peggy who has pen pals noticed this, and she's right.

I notice that you write well. Mibba the creative writing community might be worth a look at. It's an interesting site all the same. You might like it. :)

I joined up with a spiritual dating site. This might be better for me.

I love spirituality and hope to be a vegan next year so it is a good fit.

I would love to meet a spiritual partner. I am holding fire on subbing to Guardian soulmates even though it is a good deal.

I am rubbish with online dating. I already got blocked today from that woman i was speaking to on saturday. At least it was not a protracted saga. I have chatted with women for months and then after one date it's over. I mean that has to be for shallow reasons. It happens so often as well..
not dated in many years, not sure i'd know how too now....... i think its time for me and for me to try and find my own soul...

Spritual is good, Burt. :)
But plenty of fish is better, ok it’s rough and ready, but it’s free, I don’t think you’ll find your soul mate. But you know.
