Idk man, the idea of dating apps is kinda flawed, like only broken women who can't get a date irl are on them in my experience.

It's just getting off the ground

2018-05-22 06:04:53 UTC  

Oh wow

2018-05-22 06:04:53 UTC  

Can't vouch for it

2018-05-22 06:05:12 UTC  

Just know it exists

2018-05-22 06:14:53 UTC  

Less than 2k members though

Wheat field update #3: Due to a continuing lack of women we have decided to fertilize the wheat fields. Will update again in 15 days.

how do you tell the difference between a girl just being nice to you/platonically friendly and her giving signs she's into you?

2018-06-08 02:53:27 UTC  

There's entire books about this sort of stuff, but just asking is probably the easiest option. If you don't want to be super obvious just ask her to do something alone with you.

2018-06-08 02:53:40 UTC  

tbh i'm not sure if I'm into her

2018-06-08 02:53:49 UTC  

there's a girl in my martial arts class who started at the same time as me

2018-06-08 02:54:01 UTC  

and all this time I have no idea if she's just been friendly with me or trying to subtley tell me she's into me

2018-06-08 02:54:15 UTC  

so I'm just hoping for some kind of wisdom so I could differentiate

2018-06-08 02:56:44 UTC  

Yeah if you're not really interested in her then I would just not even worry about it. Just do what you normally do and let her escalate things if that's what she wants to do.

2018-06-08 02:57:13 UTC  

>escalating things

2018-06-08 02:59:11 UTC  

Well if you are not interested and she likes you and she never says anything that's not really your problem.

2018-06-08 02:59:20 UTC  

fair enough

2018-06-08 13:04:03 UTC  

@Gaius Mucius Scaevola look up IOIs (indicators of interest). Study these and eventually you’ll be able to tell on your own if she’s into you.

Newly single. Advice on looking for someone who could be considered "marriage material?"

And/or what should be some basic criteria to look for?

2018-06-08 13:45:27 UTC  

I might be biased, but, being an IE member is a good start

2018-06-08 13:48:04 UTC  

IE > general population

2018-06-08 13:55:32 UTC  

True, and I'd agree. But what would list as criteria to look for, in terms of character?

2018-06-08 15:35:28 UTC  

@SamanthaM I think some important qualities in a partner are:
1. Able to communicate with you comfortably.
2. Being able to separate who you are as a person apart from what your emotional state might happen to be at one particular time.
3. Looking to make you comfortable.
I think these 3 go both ways in a successful relationship.

2018-06-08 23:13:13 UTC  

@SamanthaM are you asking for yourself?

2018-06-08 23:34:20 UTC  

@SamanthaM being a single women in IE is an absolute jackpot. idk if you go to meet ups but if not you should. the people(men) who i have met here are top quality. in terms of your question, i'd say someone who conveys to you that they want marriage and kids in the not so distant future. as in, someone who expresses intent and does so routinely. someone who isnt afraid of commitment.

2018-06-08 23:34:57 UTC  

also someone with their career together. as in, they have a job they like and they have a path to advancement

2018-06-08 23:35:22 UTC  

guys need to be financially secure in order to be available for marriage/kids

2018-06-09 00:29:25 UTC

2018-06-09 00:29:27 UTC  

Come on ladies. Wheat fields are standing by.

2018-06-09 00:39:36 UTC  

I just want to put this out there. I'm currently tied down, but if any IE girls need some dating profile pics I literally have access to thousands of acres of wheat.

2018-06-09 00:41:03 UTC  

It's almost ready too.

2018-06-09 00:45:11 UTC  

@micbwilli you're already married right?

2018-06-09 00:46:18 UTC  

No but I'm not looking. I just kinda see post here and check them out. I'm discord obsessive and can't stand unread messages.

2018-06-09 00:46:41 UTC  

I don't even know why I was added to this part of the server.

2018-06-09 00:50:24 UTC  

I'm not a lady bro... 😅

2018-06-09 00:50:52 UTC  

ya'll can still get married

2018-06-09 00:50:53 UTC  

no homo

2018-06-09 00:51:00 UTC  

Oh goyd I'm sorry bro!

2018-06-09 00:51:20 UTC  

No worries. 👌

2018-06-09 00:51:46 UTC  

The puppy avatar threw me off.
